Top Ten Books I’d Quickly Save if my House was Going to be Abducted by Aliens

TopTenTuesdayTop Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. As lovers of books and of lists, they post a list each week. Check it out for other lists, and to link up your own list there.

This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Books I’d Quickly Save if my House was Going to be Abducted by Aliens (or any other natural calamity were to occur)

We actually had a wildfire within 100 yards of our house two years ago, when I thought about saving things, particularly books, I knew that I’d be able to replace them.   So, for the sake of argument here, I’m going to pretend that I won’t be able to get online and reorder them as soon as the dust settles.  Here are my picks:

Sentimental picks

SorceryCecelia_mech.indd *Sorcery and Cecelia by Caroline Stevermer and Patricia Wrede.  Hey, I named my first born child out of this book, and I absolutely love it, so for sentimental and entertainment reasons it’s coming.

*Scrapbooks-I know I’m cheating a little, because I have more than one, but all of those pictures, and all of that creative effort, I’m bringing them!

“I’m going to need a good laugh/ pick me up after the alien invasion” picks

My Unfair Godmother * My Unfair Godmother by Janette Rallison

*Revenge of the Cheerleaders by Janette Rallison

-Janette Rallison is by far my favorite writer for romantic comedies.  Her characters are fun and witty, and always make me laugh out-loud and smile.

*The Season by Sarah MacLean

“I can’t imagine never reading this book again” picks

DieforMe *Forgotten by Cat Patrick

*Die for Me by Amy Plum






“I might be able to glean some survival tips from these” picks

The Host *The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

*Divergent by Veronica Roth

*The Host by Stephenie Meyer-aliens, see the relevance here?


  1. I had a very hard time with this list because I was thinking the same thing as you... I could just go out and get new of most of mine. Still, great list! I love Janette Rallison too!

    I was won over by finding another twenty-something year old YA fan anyway, but then Die For Me caught my attention and I had to go check THAT out. All I can say is: OMGYES New book on my reading list. :)
