You've heard of the popular radio show 'Desert Island Discs'...well, we thought it would be fun to find out what BOOKS we would choose to be stranded with! So, we'll be running a brand new series of blogs over the coming weeks and months inviting staff, students and other blog followers to answer 4 simple questions on this very topic. It'll be an interesting opportunity to share our literary favourites and to find out more about each other! If you'd like to contribute - send your answers to the 4 questions below to me and we'll post them over the coming keep visiting the blog to see if yours is here!
I'm going to get the ball rolling by sharing my desert island reads with you...please don't judge me too harshly!! :-)
If you were stranded on a desert island which 4 books would you like to have with you and why?

Frankenstein – My favourite book of all time, so I’ll never get tired of reading it.
Robinson Crusoe – I might pick up some valuable survival tips!

Twilight – I love Stephanie Meyer’s series of vampire books and the first is the best.

Wild Food – A cook book by bush craft expert Ray Mears…I could be stuck on this island for a long time - it’s a no brainer!

If you could bring one of the characters to life, for company, who would you choose and why?

Edward Cullen from Twilight. Let’s face it, he’s easy on the eye (!), he’s also very intelligent so would make great conversation…and he has vampire super powers which could help me escape the island! Although with him for company I’m not sure I’d want to…!

You can have one luxury item on the island with you…what would it be?

My iPhone, I can’t leave home without it!! Then I could call for help…assuming I could get a signal?!!

You are rescued and can only take one book back with you…which one would you pick?

Twilight – what can I say, I’m obsessed with all things vampire!
