Top Ten Books I’d Quickly Save in Case of a Fire

Top Ten Books I’d Quickly Save in Case of Fire
(or Alien Abduction, Tornado, Flood, Nuclear Explosion…)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we were asked to list books that we could not part with, come hell or high water… These are my picks in the order that I’d grab them:


1. The Clan of the Cave BearBy Jean M. Auel - My number one book of all time. I have a first edition. I will not leave without it.

2. Les MisérablesBy Victor HugoMy number two book of all time. I can read this one over and over. Plus, I love the copy I have.

3. Ender’s Game – By Orson Scott Card - If you’re a frequent follower of my blog, you should know this one by now…

4-6. The Tiger’s Curse SeriesBy Colleen Houck - I LOVE the series. LOVE IT. Plus, all of my copies are signed and the memory of getting them signed is very dear to me… The series will likely take over spots 7 and 8, as well, once the final two books are released. And if the incident occurred in my office at work, I would definitely have to retrieve my signed poster…

7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone - By Laini Taylor – Another signed edition. I love this story and have quickly become attached to the copy I have.

8. Harry Potter: Page to Screen  - By Bob McCabe – This behemoth… I still need to finish looking at it all! And I’m not giving it up until I do! (Which will likely be… oh… never!)

9. The Art of the Lion King - By Disney – This book made me want to become an animator as a child. Alas, the dream died in college (I am now a graphic artist and not an animator), but the book still holds a place in my heart. I also have The Art of Pocahantus.

10. The Fault in Our Stars – By John Green – This 2012 release has quickly made it’s way into my heart and it’s there to stay. (Oh, and like most of the first editions, it’s signed.)
