Top Ten Characters I'd Want With Me on a Deserted Island

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Fifteen Characters I'd Want With Me on a Deserted Island.

  1. Katniss (The Hunger Games)– Will need someone to hunt for me, right?
  2. Ismae, Sybella, and/or Annith (His Fair Assassin) – Assassins seem to be good for just about any kind of survival skill, right? Not exactly the same thing, but close.
  3. Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices) – Also capable of fighting off just about anything to might try to hurt us what with him being a demon hunter and all. Plus easy on the eyes and hilarious at the same time.
  4. Lisbeth Salander (Millennium) – Although she’s a bit socially awkward, I bet she could figure us a way off the island.
  5. Wolf (The Lunar Chronicles) – Also easy on the eyes and being able to wolf out might come in handy.
  6. Adrian (Vampire Academy/Bloodlines) Jasper (Twilight) – It was hard to consider putting Adrian on the list and not also list Dimitri, but I think Adrian’s Spirit might come in handy if we run into any natives that might need calming, but with Spirit’s added bonus of insanity, perhaps we’d be better off sticking with Jasper's mood altering abilities.
  7. Four (Divergent) – Considering he’s pretty fearless, it would probably be needed to have a member of my team who was willing to face down any challenge—let’s just hope our island isn’t really mountainous.
  8. Perry (Under the Never Sky) – Being used to living in wild helps, plus his double gift makes him one of the team for sure.
  9. Daemon (Lux) – Because we need someone rash enough to blaze the trails no one else wants to take. And his sarcasm will keep us all on our toes.
  10. Tarver (Starbound) – Being in the military and all, and surviving on a deserted planet gives him a one up on everyone else on our team.
  11. Ronan (The Raven Cycle) – Being able to dream things into existence could come in handy. We might need him to dream us a boat. Sounds like a plan to me.
  12. Noah (Mara Dyer) – Since I’ve already ruled out Adrian for his insane tendencies, we’d probably need a healer.
  13. Josh (The Sea of Tranquility) – His sweet carpentry skills could be useful in building our shelter and various other wood related needs.
  14. Remy (The Hollows) – Because no one can really be as lucky as she is and we probably need some of that luck to rub off on us.
  15. Katsa (Graceling) – Because having someone with the special skill of “survival” can only be a good thing.

So who would make your team if you could take any character with you to a deserted island? Let me know!


  1. Katniss is on my list week too. I'd love to have Noah from the Mara Dyer trilogy too. :-)

    Jasper's abilities would definitely be nice to have in a stressful situation. I forgot about Katsa! I have Katniss on my list but she may be an even better choice.

    My Top Ten

  3. Oooh, such a good team!!! I don't think I would have ever thought of Daemon, but he would be a really good team member!
    Great Top Ten :D

  4. Katniss made my list too, she'd be perfect in that situation. I would definitely want her on hunting duty. Lisbeth is an amazing pick, she'd be perfect for that. Perry & Four both made my list too, mainly because I love them both but they would be useful in that situation too! Here's my TTT.

  5. I can't wait to see how the Mara Dyer trilogy wraps up. Thanks for stopping by Chrissi!

  6. Haha...yep Ronan could get us out of that jam in just a couple of dreams I'm sure. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting Clair!

  7. Thanks Kay! Katsa's ability being survival afterall just felt like she had to be on the list for me. Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Haha...he'd provide the humor if nothing else. Thanks for stopping by Kimberly!

  9. I just know Lisbeth would find a way to get us a wifi connection out there and hack into Bloomkvist's computer to tell him where we are and to come get us. :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  10. Oh my gosh, I love your list! I've seen Katniss, Four, and Tarver a lot. And I knew I should have kept Perry on my island! His skills and leadership would come in handy. But I did choose Will's other half, Jem. :)

    I love when our lists look so similar! =) I think that Lisbeth could probably hack a ship and rescue us! She would probably be the most useful, actually! ;-)
    Thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great week!

  12. Yeah, Katniss was # 1 on several lists that I saw. I can see where Jem would be almost as good as Will...but....:) I'm coming around to that ending of Clockwork Princess, but I'm not fully there yet. Thanks for stopping by Holly!

  13. Haha...I love when that happens too! Lisbeth would definitely rescue us all. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Glad to see you around more lately. :) Does school start back next month?
