Top Ten Tuesday #54 + Teaser Tuesday #15

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 


This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Top 10 Characters I Would Want With Me On a Deserted Island. So, I'm just kind of pulling an entire cast of characters from one book. Because someone has actually already explored this! Jules Verne. And he had everyone you would need on a deserted island. And I've thrown in a few extras because I need 10, so there's some just for fun.

  1. Captain Harding from The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne - the leader and engineer of the group. You need an engineer.
  2. Neb from The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne - because you need someone for heavy lifting.
  3. Pencroft from The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne - sailors are always useful.
  4. Doctor Livesey from Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson - because a medical man is important.
  5. Sage from The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen - because Sage has the devil's own luck, if ever someone did, and it's always good to have someone in the group who has that kind of luck. Also, you never know when nimble fingers might be needed.
  6. Halt from Ranger's Apprentice by John Flanagan - because he's an archer! And a Ranger!
  7. Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer - because a mechanic and an engineer would most certainly get us off the island.
  8. Wolf from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer - for security duty. Because that deserted island may not stay deserted for long.
  9. Jackaby from Jackaby by William Ritter - he'll be able to tell us if the island is infested with supernatural beings. And if it isn't, he'd be for entertainment purposes. ;-)
  10. Abigail from Jackaby by William Ritter - to chronicle our time on the island. :-)

- Grab the book you're currently reading.
- Flip to a random page!
- Share two teaser sentences from that page!

"Sorry," Jack said. "My fault. I'll buy another round. Let's get lemonade this time." And he firmly ushered the still-protesting Fitch and Ellen away from the water. Will followed behind, shaking his head and frowning.The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima (pg. 214)

  1. The book cover hints to some amazing sword fights; I love sword fights in a good fantasy read :)

    1. If I had had the energy, I would have found a much more tantalizing teaser sentence. It does have sword fights - lots of them. :)

  2. Lemonade -- the breakfast of warriors? That's not at all what I expected from a book with a sword on the cover.
    My Teaser is from KEEPING FAITH.

    1. Powerful lemonade. ;) It's urban fantasy.

  3. That is a great group of people, I think you covered every possible misfortune, even that of a supernatural nature ;) And Sage would definitely be on my list, as I have been known to have less than good luck on a normal basis :P

    1. I would say that I didn't cover zombies, but between Halt and Wolf - I think we'd be fine. ;)

    2. And Jackaby should know something about them ;)

    3. Unless they don't exist in his world. ;)

  5. Haha, looks like you're all set to survive anything and get off the island in record time!

    1. That's assuming I'd want to leave, which I probably wouldn't. Which makes it all that more important that I have a team I like. ;)
