This tag really speaks to me. I mean it’s music and books! How could I not love it?

You are cast away onto a remote island:

  • You can bring 5 albums, what are they?
  • You can bring ONE book (not including The Bible (or other appropriate religious texts) or The Complete Works of Shakespeare, as they are already provided and NO SERIES), what ONE book is it?
  • You can have one luxury item (it has to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island), what is it?

I really love this album so much! Aurora is such a great singer and her music is dark, but whimsical. She has a great voice, powerful but not overbearing.

I already listen to this album on repeat almost everyday, but I wouldn’t survive on the island without it, that’s for sure.

Top Three PicksWarrior, Running with the Wolves, Runaway.

Another favorite album that I can’t stop listening to.

I listen to pop music now and then, but The Chainsmokers have always captured my ears whenever I hear it on the radio. I can’t help it! It’s great party music. 😀

I listen to their album around as much as I listen to Aurora’s singing. I love all the songs on here, too bad there’s not many to listen to though.

Top Three PicksNew York City, Roses, Until You Were Gone.

Oh how I love soundtracks! I listen to all of the soundtracks of Sherlock whenever I can, they’re so beautiful sometimes! (And the feels!)

Although I really love the 1st Season’s track, I’ve recently been getting more and more into Season 4’s music.

Top Three PicksWho You Really Are, 59 Missed Calls, The Stranger.

Melanie Martinez - Cry Baby (album).png CRYBABY By MELANIE MARTINEZ

I really like Melanie’s music a lot!

Her songs are so unique, and they represent lots of things but seem childlike.

I also really like her voice, it goes well with her music and it’s just smooth. 🙂

Top Three PicksDollhouse, Pity Party, Carousel.

Another great soundtrack! I really love this movie so much. And I have a great appreciation fro Marvel soundtracks in general. I love the music that Marvel creates (even the reprises are fantastic)!

Doctor Strange is one of my favorite movies, so it makes sense why I want to take this with me.

Top Three PicksStrange Days Ahead, Ancient Sorcerer’s Secret, Go for Baroque.

The Night Circus By Erin Morgenstern


I want to read this book so badly!!! It’s on my TBR right now. I was thinking if I had it on an island with me, then I’ll definitely be able to read it!

What I’d Bring

A fuzzy blanket! Not for survival purposes, but to curl up and read my book and listen to music. I always need a blanket nearby to get comfy while reading, it’s just something I’ll use now a then as a comfort object—not survival.

  1. Hi there! I just came across this post of yours and your blog in general and I couldn’t help but comment and tell you how much I love this! Keep up the great work, I am going to follow you so I can keep up with all your new posts!


    1. You’re welcome! It was really fun, I hope you have fun doing it too! The soundtrack is great! Who You Really Are is my favorite, I always get reminded of the running scene. 🙂 Thank you!


  2. Ooooh, your answers were so much fun to read! 😀 The Chainsmokers are super good. I keep waiting for a terrible song from them and haven’t had one yet. XD And I feel like the beats will cheer you a bit up on the deserted island. XD And lol, yes, there are a few books that will take you getting stuck on an island to read them. I have a few of those. XD But at least the insanely beautiful imagery will keep you entertained on the island. AND A BLANKET IS RIDICULOUSLY SMART. I should have said that. Wonderful tag as always, and thank you for the kind words. ❤

    1. Thank YOU for tagging me! It was so fun! 😄 I love The Chainsmokers, they haven’t disappointed me with any new songs yet. And I keep listening to their music—you’re right, it’s just like having an island party. 😂 And I can’t survive without a fluffy blanket nearby, haha. 😊 THANK YOU!!


  3. Ooohhh great choices here! I LOVE Melanie Martinez and all the others would be lovely to listen to as well.
    I just tried Aurora out and her songs sound amazing! Definitely an artist I’ll gladly listen to more often 🙂
