Top Ten Tuesday (6) ~ Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish where each week they post a new Top Ten list on various bookish things.

This week's topic:

 Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

I've just realized I'm doing Top Ten Tuesday all wrong!! I should be counting down not up!

10. Cassie from The Fifth Wave - This girl has great survival instincts and endurance. She's survived an alien invasion, I think she could help me survive on a deserted island! 

9. Aiden St. Delphi from Covenant series - He's ripped, and he's at his best when dealing with crises. I think being stranded on a desert island counts as a crisis. And he's quite attractive. *winks*

8. Adrian Ivashkov from Bloodlines - Best comic relief ever. Freaking hot. 

7. Perry from Under the Never Sky - He's great at surviving in the outdoors with the bare minimum. 

6. Chaol Westfall from Throne of Glass - Do I need a reason? Who wouldn't want to be stranded with this hottie? 

5. Sydney Sage from Bloodlines - She's smart, she'd find a way to save us really quickly. And she can be fun (sometimes). 

4. Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass - She's awesome and hilarious and would be great company! 

3. Tucker Avery from Unearthly - He's so sweet and optimistic. I'd LOVE to be stranded on a deserted island with him ;) 

2. Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments - He's awesome and flamboyant and he's got magic. He could rescue us both, and he'd be tons of fun to hang out with :) 

1. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games - She's the epitome of survival. 

Who would you want with you on a deserted island?

  1. Oh yes yes yes, your list is just so stuffed with awesome. Katniss and Chaol YES PLEASE. (Although I think Celeana would need to be there as well. Though I'm not sure she'd get on well with Katniss...) I have not read The 5th Wave yet. I know right?! Very very sad. XD

    1. It's fine, I haven't read The Fault in Our Stars yet or anything else by John Green. Yup Chaol Westfall was on the list of course! Katniss was a must, she'd keep me alive! Yeah those two would not get along well. Celaena could easily take on Katniss.

  2. Magnus Bane? YES YES and YES! Man, I would do anything to have that man on a deserted island ALONE with me, hihihi. ^^ If not possible, I would enjoy Katniss' company, oh yeah, and Damon as well. <3 Lovely post. ^^

    1. I can't believe I forgot Damon ;( But yes, I thought of Magnus Bane almost immediately ;)

  3. Katniss would easily survive on a deserted island after surviving 2 hunger games. I completely forgot about Magnus, I want him on my list as well, how could I forget about him? I love Sydney and I love her even more when she's with Adrian who's one of the best characters ever! Tucker is such a nice and easy going character, it'd be great to have him an a deserted island.
    Great list. :)

    1. Tucker's a keeper for sure ;) Katniss would outlive anyone on a deserted island! Sydrian would be great to be stuck on an island with. Except it might get a bit awkward, wouldn't want to be a third wheel :P

  4. I took Roar over Perry from Under the Never Sky. I love his confidence and think he'd be fun to have around. I love Adrian, too, but Dimitri would be good to have as a sparring partner. I think he'd be better to have on a deserted island. And of course, Magnus is a must! Great list!

    1. Yeah but Adrian's more fun than Dimka!! I could see the reasoning behind that though. Magnus is definitely a must. He could entertain me for hours while we waited for rescue.

  5. I see a lot of books I know, but haven't read yet. Like Under the Never Sky, which I'll get to soon! I like Magnus Bane as well haha :) What a fun list!

    1. Get reading Jillian ;) It was fun making the list!

  6. The only character I've heard from this list is Katniss (who is also on my list). I've seen Under the Never Sky on a few lists so maybe I need to read that. Thanks for sharing!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  7. Cassie! I love her. You're right, after surviving aliens a deserted island would be a cake walk for her.

    1. That's what I thought!! ;) She was one of the first characters I thought of.

  8. I almost added Chaol to my list because like you said, why wouldn't I? But I didn't want to be too distracted. Great picks.

    1. Half the characters on my list are distractions XD I think he would be a great asset though! He'd help out and be useful ;)

      Delete
  9. Celaena, Katniss and Magnus? Yes, yes and yes! And agreed, who wouldn't want to be stranded with Chaol? ;) This is one fantastic list!

  10. I would love to see all of these characters on an island together! Imagine what would happen.
    Great list! I was so close to putting Magnus on my list, but then I remembered that he has a habit of turning annoying mundanes into animals. I do not think I would last that long.

    1. Oh gosh XD I think Celaena would kill Adrian. Perry and Aiden would team up and go off to hunt or build up a camp. Tucker would be the peacekeeper (not THG kind). Katniss and Cassie would bond and become BFFs. Sydney would mourn Adrian's death and then attack Celaena (and probably die). Magnus would be cracking jokes and playing around with his magic. :) Chaol would probably take on the leadership role.

  11. Haha, I don't think there's a "right" way of doing TTT, because I usually don't care whether I count up or down! Or maybe I've just been doing it wrong my whole blogging life, too, in which case... just ignore me. O_O

    10. I haven't read The 5th Wave yet, but it's currently sitting on my shelf, calling out to me~ I've heard loads about Cassie, though, and she definitely seems like a strong and brave and great person to be stuck on an island with. I'm a bit of a scaredy, so I'm going to have to count on other people to protect me, lol.

    7. PERRY, MY LOVE. *ahem* Sorry, I just love Perry a lot. I agree, he'd be handy to have around to survive!

    6. I have a small confession here: I'm actually more of a Dorian girl. It's not to say that I don't like Chaol, I just found him a lot less interesting than Dorian, and a lot more cliche, too. But I've only read the first book, so what do I know? And I also know that I'm in the minority here when I say that I prefer Dorian. A friend of mine said that Crown of Midnight will totally make me fall in love with Chaol, though, so we'll see how that goes. ;)

    4. YES. And like I said on my post, she has an awesome sense of fashion as well, so we can do girly things at the same time. xD

    3. Duuuude, I want to read Unearthly so bad. I know plenty of people who loved it, so I don't know what's stopping me from getting the damn book and reading it. And with the amount of emo love interests nowadays, I have a feeling Tucker will be like a refreshing spring breeze with his optimism. I'm looking forward to meeting him for sure!

    1. I thought of including Katniss in mine, but decided to go with Legolas instead since he's kind of an underdog when it comes to characters who are good with a bow and arrow. But all the same, I'd love to have Katniss on my island as well. She'd probably be our best chance at survival.

    Great list, Rachel! (And also, thanks for stopping by and following my blog! Always makes me so happy to see new readers around. Following you back. :D)

    1. You will LOVE Crown of Midnight, I guarantee ;) And Chaol truly develops more in that book. You're welcome! I really love your blog and your posts :) Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I HAVEN'T READ THRONE OF GLASS YET. BUT I'LL GET ON IT SOON! Because Caelana seems like such a good pick, and of course THERE'S KATNISS. Then I haven't read anything else on your list, BUT it seems like you're likely to survive anyways!

    1. VAL!! GO READ IT!! XD I would (most likely) survive ;)

  13. I have quite a few of the same characters as you! I just started the Unearthly trilogy and from what you're saying about Tucker, I can't wait to meet him!

    Here's mine :) Top Ten Tuesday

  14. Katniss is definitely a top choice for today's top ten topic! I know she made my list as well. I haven't read a lot of the books on your list. Most of them are on my TBR. I agree with your choice in Chaol. Yummy.

    My Top Ten

  15. Heh it's the 2nd time today that I see Cassie on someone's list. Can't wait to meet this surviving kick-a girl ;) CHAOOOOOL. Ugh, I should have thought of him. Perry is just. Sigh. Love! Ha! Adiran is eye candy and comic relief 100% ;) Such a great list, Rachel!

    1. She's great!! Chaol <3 <3 Perry is pretty awesome as well! Thank you :)

  16. Love these picks!! I just picked up Crown of Midnight (I know) so I'm so excited to see more Chaol! Also, I would love to have Magnus and Perry there, too! I actually didn't like the 5th Wave when I read it but I totally agree that Cassie would be a smart person to have with you while you're trying to survive! and, of course, AIDEN!

    Nice picks!!

    1. YAY!! Enjoy Crown of Midnight :) It's fantastic. Perry would be pretty awesome to hang out with, so would Magnus. Cassie and Aiden are cool too!

  17. You can do TTT anyway!! I love Adrian and Sydney. They are perfect picks! Thanks for stopping by!

  18. 7,5, 2 and 1! Whoops, I went backwards, lol! Anyhoo... I would want Will Herondale and James Carstairs. Maybe Puck and Ash. By all means, I want to see what Will will do to Puck!

    That is not a grammatical error, lol. :D

    1. "What Will will do to Puck" XD That IS the essential question ;)

  19. Great picks! Katniss made my list, along with pretty much everybody else's. She's an easy pick and I would definitely have her on hunting duty. I also had Chaol because I am in love with that guy, would love to be trapped on an island with him. I also picked Celaena because she's amazing and could handle anything. Wouldn't want to fight her for Chaol though.

    1. Chaol is amazing <3 Celaena could handle anything, she practically does in CoM! Oh yeah.... I don't even want to think what she'd do XD

  20. I’d definitely feel safer with Katniss on my side. And Adrian Ivashkov sounds like a pretty good idea as well! I’d use him for cracking some jokes, but to compensate for that, I would spend the rest of the time being grumpy along with Mr. Darcy! And I’d bring the Weasley family and the entire set of Harry Potter characters with me, as I just cannot imagine a life without them. :P

    1. Adrian would probably be useless, except for comic relief and being sweet and thoughtful ;) Mr. Darcy <3 <3 You'd have so much fun with the Weasley clan and HP characters!!
