Guest Post: Top Ten Books to Read when Stranded on a Desert Island by Zoraida Cordova

Today we're lucky enough to have Zoraida Cordova sharing a little bit about herself on the blog for all her readers and fans to check out!

If you are going to be stranded, may as well find something to pass the time. Just make sure you plan ahead...

#1 would have to be HOW TO SURVIVE ON A DESERT ISLAND. Because, really, if I don't survive, I won't get to read #2-10.

#2 Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, obvi.

#3 A collection of fairy tales from around the world.

#4 The Harry Potter series, because I'll need a little hope to keep me going.

#5 Montana Sky by Nora Roberts. Don't roll your eyes at me. Deserted islands get lonely.

#6 Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins because every word is beauty.

#7 Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown. Partly because I'd like the company of merpeople. Partly because I'd like to read it before I get stranded. But also because I can't say I want to get stranded with my own meremaids :)

#8 Buffy the Vampire Slayer, season 8 graphic novels. When facing the forces of darkness (strike that), nature, I'd ask myself, What Would Buffy Do?

#9 The Essential Neruda. Pablo Neruda was exiled to an island where he feel in love and wrote poetry. Maybe I'd get the same inspiration.

#10 A blank notebook, to write my own stories.

Thank you so much Zoraida, for stopping by the blog, and in case you haven't heard (if you're living in a cave or something?) her own book, The Vicious Deep (The Vicious Deep, #1) is hitting the shelves on May 1, 2012. You can check out my review below, and trust me, that it's a read you definitely don't want to miss out on!
