Top Ten Tuesday: Who I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week offers a fun book related topic that allows you to spotlight your Top Ten.

Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

I will be honest and say, that I have wondered about what skills I would like to have from characters in a survival type circumstance. This one is better, I can have the actual characters there with me!

1. Katniss Everdeen 
(The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins)
The girl can hunt like no tomorrow.
2. Hermione Granger 
 (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling)
She is smart and would probably know how to survive from having read a book about it, plus she is great at magic and could get us off the island in a heartbeat.
3. James Alexander Malcolm McKenzie Fraser 
 (Outlander by Diana Gaboldon)
He is a Scottish Highlander....he can do anything! Cook, sew, fight, hunt...whatever.
4. Brady Stoner 
(Austin/Stoner Files by Stephen Bly)
He is a cowboy with a great sense of humor. He also has a great talent with animals.
5. Alexander Bainbridge 
(Against the Tide by Elizabeth Camden)
He knows about the sea from sailing so long, so he could navigate off the island if need be.
6. Charlotte Waverly 
 (Wedded to War by Jocelyn Green)
She was a fantastic nurse that cared about getting people well.
7. Red Shirt 
(Courting Morrow Little by Laura Frantz)
He can live off the land. He can hunt and scout and if need be fight.

I could only think as far as seven today. If I had continued, I think the characters would have started to repeat!

Who are your ten you would want with you?


  1. I have Katniss and Hermione on my list as well, I'm guessing a lot of people will choose those two today. :) Great list!
    Here's my TTT

  2. This is a really great list. Some interesting choices. Having a Highlander around is an excellent idea. I had Katniss on my list too; seems to be a popular choice today.

  3. Red Shirt... Gotta love him! *Sigh*

    I nominated you for the Sunshine Award! :)

    Please stop by my link to visit my post on it and read what you must do:

  4. Katniss may frustrate me to no end in her quest to NEVER make a decision when it comes to matters of the heart, but when it comes down to it, yep, I'd want her on my team.

    Bane is also a great pick. That is one memorable hero. *swoon* ;)

  5. Petra, Both have valuable skills for sure! :-) Thanks!

  6. Reviews, Oh, my goodness. A highlander was the first thought on my mind. :-) Very talented. Katniss did seem popular today for sure.

  7. Salyna, Oh, goodness...Red Shirt is phenomenal! He is one to stick with you.

    And thank you! :-)

  8. Rissi, I understand where you are coming from. Peeta made all of the decisions. The girl couldn't for the life of her, but her hunting was the best and she could fight when mad. So, if she hunts and other make the decisions, it's a win/win. Haha.

    Bane is very memorable! :-)


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
