Tell Me Something Tuesday with Elena: You and the Apocalypse…

 

Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings.

This week’s topic: It’s the end of the world…what books do you grab to preserve for future readers?

Whoa…This week’s topic is very interesting and a bit scary I must confess. I have to be honest, though, and say that with everything that’s happening in the world nowadays, sometimes I do think the Apocalypse is nigh…Hopefully that’s not the case, but what books I’d decide to save if the end of the world happened upon us?

Jane Austen’s books

Jane Austen collection

 

Well, duh! You had already guessed it right? A huge Jane Austen fan like myself wouldn’t leave her novels behind. I believe lots of contemporary books wouldn’t even exist if Jane Austen hadn’t been a writer.

Shakespeare’s plays.

Shakespeare

What kind of world would it be without Shakespeare? I can’t even fathom it. Shakespeare and literature belong to each other, so I’d definitely save them for future readers!

Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder and The Orange Girl by Jostein Gaarder

the orange girl

 

I read both books when I was 14, and they had great impact on me. They made me see the world under a different light and they made me think, raising several questions and propelling me to find the answers within myself. Definitely books everyone should read at least once in their life.

The Bible

Bible

 

I believe in God, so the Bible is always a must for me.

The Gabriel Series by Sylvain Reynard

Gabriel's Inferno

Gabriel's Rapture

gabriel's redemption

I’ve said it over and over again that this is one of my absolute favorite series, so I’d definitely want future readers to read it, not only because of the love story between Professor Gabriel and Julianne, but also because of the themes it deals with.

Easy and Breakable by Tammara Webber

I’ll never tire of reading these books. Lucas and Jacqueline are both great examples of true strength and perseverance, not to mention real love…

Making Faces by Amy Harmon

This is a book I’m finishing reading and you guys…I dare say I’ve never been blown away so much by a book in my life. It went straight to my all time favorite books list. A story which shows what true beauty is…I’ll be reviewing it very soon, but this is one of those novels you’ll never want to part with. Everyone should read it, and I mean it.

What about you? Which books would you save for future readers?
