Top Ten Tuesdays: Desert Island Characters


I’ve been super busy for the past couple of weeks, sorry for my absence! It doesn’t look like it’s going to ease up any time soon, but I just couldn’t let this top ten drop! As always, this is from The Broke and the Bookish!

1. Severus Snape.

Because he’s awesome and I feel like a desert island party would make him a bit happier.


2. Aragorn, Son of Arathorn, King of Gondor and Arnor.

BECAUSE ARAGORN, OKAY?! And we’ll need a king, since we have a prince already.


3. Jane Eyre

She’s an awesome girl and could really use a holiday. Like really use a holiday.



Don’t look at me like that, Jane!

4. Remus Lupin. 

Even if Snape and Lupin got in a bitchfight, I’d want them on my island. Except maybe when it’s Lupin’s time of the month… At least he knows to bring chocolate.


5. Mr Thornton. 

Because he’s gorgeous and Richard Armitage is awesome. Hell, he can alternate between Thorin Oakenshield and Thornton, I’m not complaining!


6. Bigwig.

Because every desert island needs a mascot.



7. Sherlock Holmes.

We could all do lessons in the Science of Deductive Reasoning. I have a sneaking suspicion that Snape would find it highly educational. Jane could probably have used some deductive reasoning during the whole “what the hell is Grace Pool doing?!” saga also. The whole cocaine thing we can deal with later.



8. Elizabeth Bennett.

Because the male to female ratio is a bit extreme and I’m pretty sure us girls would get up to some mischief. Darcy and Rochester? Who are they?


9. Mrs Danvers.

Doesn’t this game always involve someone to kill for food?


On second thought, no one wants to eat her. We’ll just keep her to do the housework and then maroon her when we leave. 

10. Atticus Finch.

Because considering the group of people on this island, we’ll need a voice of reason.


…And probably a lawyer when we get off, coz so far we’ll have a wizard duel, drugs, possible murder/marooning and probably at least one indecent assault. Oops.

11. Captain Daniel Gregg.

I throw in Captain Gregg at number 11, because:

a) I haven’t read the book.

b) He’s not technically a person, because he’s dead. It’s like being nearly headless, it doesn’t count. 

c) We’ll need someone to take us to and from the desert island.

d) He would probably leave Danvers behind too. And join in with the fun.

e) Rex Harrison is a babe.



And since we’re on the topic of Sexy Rexy, we’re going to the island in this:


I think I’ve just had far too much fun. I need to go lie down…

  1. Omg best list so far!!!! I love that you have Jane on your list. Plus adding someone to kill clever!!! Thanks so much for making my day. Have a fantastic week and happy reading. New follower My TTT

  2. Haha, I love your list!!! Snape is a great pick because he is definitely in need of a desert island party. Sherlock Holmes would be brilliant too, I’d definitely love to have him on my island. Remus is one of my favourite HP characters, so I’d be happy to have him on my island too. Here’s my TTT.
