Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I'd Quickly Save If My House Was Going To Be Abducted By Aliens

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

Top Ten Books I'd Quickly Save If My House Was Going To Be Abducted By Aliens: This is a tough one. I love all my books! I can't image having to pick which one to save. However, anything can happen, so I have to consider the possibility while I can. Personally, I most likely would pick up books I haven’t read yet. I’d go over every section in my book shelf and pick which one I want to read the most, so this list is changeable. Maybe by the time the aliens come, I’d have read all of those.

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I’m craving to read this book! I’d need something that holds a lot of emotions. 
 2. Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn: I’m gonna need something inspiring. This book has stories of women that made it despite all the odds.

3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: 10 is not a lot of books. I wouldn’t want to go through them all quickly. It’s better to have something huge. 
 4. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: Friendship stories. I always long for those, so I can’t imagine not saving this one. I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet! 
 5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: This is the only book on this list that I have actually read. This one just means a lot to me. If I’m going to save a classic, it’s probably this one. 
 6. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine  : There will be dark times, so I’m gonna need a fairy-tale. 
 7. The Collector by John Fowles: I need at least one suspenseful story. 
 8. Nation by Terry Pratchett: When the aliens come, I’m going to need a story about courage, one that I haven’t read. I think this one is the best pick. 
 9. Beauty: A Retelling of Beauty & the Beast by Robin McKinley: What can I say? I just love fairytales. 
 10. My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher: This book deals with several issues that are not usually discussed in children literature. There’s no way I’m leaving it behind!
