Top 5 Tues: Books I’d Save in a Fire

Greetings on this most Tuesday of all Tuesdays!

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday theme is a super difficult one: Top 5 Books I’d Save in a Fire. I had such a hard time coming up with answers for this one that I almost gave up. Seriously, how do you pick only 5 books?!

(For those who are unfamiliar with Top 5 Tuesday, it’s is a meme hosted by Shanah, at Bionic Book Worm each week discussing different ways of rating all bookish things! Check it out!)

  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  • The Crown (Queen of Hearts, #1) by Colleen Oakes
  • The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
  • Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson

This is hard. Even after deciding on these 5 I still feel like I’m “wrong” or cheating somehow because I didn’t pick some of my other favorites.

You know what, I really hope I’m not in this actual scenario because I’ll probably die trying to save all my books.

What books would you save if you could only pick 5?

  1. Yeay! I love the list! (I also love how you were truthful to the 5). I just keep thinking about how I need to create a fireproof system in my library…although I know that a sprinkler system would just destroy them even more… Maybe some shelving that are actually fire proof safe style and tuck into the wall…but then I can’t display them…AHHH.

    Also, this is the second time I see you mentioning Furiously Happy and I think I’m going to have to get my hands on a copy!

    1. I adore that book! Not only is is HILARIOUS, but I can relate to Lawson’s stories about depression/anxiety. She is amazing….and a bit kooky. I love her. Her other book “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened,” is equally as hilarious.

      1. Did you ever read Tess of the D’Urbervilles? That’s one I would have gladly lit on fire after I was forced to read it in high school. It was so long and BORING.
