Desert Island Discs Blog Tag

Thank you so much Kayla @KDrewTheBookWorm for nominating me for the Desert Island Discs Blog Tag 🌵. Everyone, go and check out her wonderful blog if you haven’t done so already!


The Rules:

  • Link back to BookBum’s original post, so she can see all your answers! (Remember to do this via pingback, she won’t get a notification if not!)
  • Thank the person who tagged you… show some love!
  • Come up with your answers
  • Then tag others to keep the tag going!


The Premise:

You are cast away onto a remote desert island:

  • You can bring 5 albums- what are they?
  • You can bring one book- which is it? You are provided with a Bible/ other religious text if you want it, as well as the Complete Works of Shakespeare. No series!
  • You can have one luxury item (it had to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island)- what is it?


My Answers:

The Albums:

I don’t listen to albums, so I’ll list the 5 songs that I added last to my phone :

  • Shape of You by Ed Sheeran
  • Be Mine by Ofenbach
  • Weak by AJR
  • Be The One by Dua Lipa
  • Believer by Imagine Dragons

And one more beautiful song that I’ll only listen to when I’m in a more emotional mood:

You've Got a Friend

The Book:

Choosing only one book? So unfair…

OK I’ve given this A LOT of thought and it’s still going to sound really weird probably but I choose Grimm’s Fairy Tales for a few different reasons:

  • it has many different tales so I won’t get bored easily (I hope)
  • I’ll be able to feel happy and sad with the characters and different stories
  • there’s a message in the stories, which is something I really like, and I can pass my time thinking about the messages
  • it’s illustrated, need I say more?
  • it’ll make me dream of a happily ever after because these tales all end well


The Luxury Item:

I’m really hesitating here between some pictures of loved ones to look at at my loneliest moments and a more practical one, a fishing net or line. Can I have this? If not I’ll choose to survive and I’ll choose the ‘fishing material’.

Fishing line


I tag…

As always, I do understand if you don’t want to do this tag or if you’ve already done this!

  1. This is a really cool tag! 🙂

    Hmm… music: I’d bring any album by Manson, Slipknot, AC/DC, Metallica and Ozzy

    Book? Oh dear me… I’d probably bring pen and paper so I could write my own book! 🙂

    As for the luxury item.. ha, I;m going to be cheeky and say I’d bring a very useful, manly hunk with myself who would do all the surviving stuff.. build me a hut from palm leaves, and fish and make fire… of course, I know how to do those things 😉 haha… but in this situation I would expect to be pampered… 😀

  3. AHH – yes yes yes! The Grimms Fairy Tales is an absolute must should the bibliophile get stuck on a desert island. First of all, the book is huge/ginormous and second of all, its lots of creative fun that one can never get bored from! 🙂
    Imagine Dragons is amazing my personal fav is Radioactive, but that’s probably only because its been totally overplayed on the radio lately…
    I look forward to reading more from you soon Inge… Happy Reading 🙂
