What are the top 5 books you would grab in an emergency?

My first thought was to list the books that I love, which would be just a top five list. The keyword here, I think, is emergency. So in no particular order…

  1. Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand I have never read this book before, but I have read Seabiscuit once upon a time and remember enjoying it. I’d pick this story because it’s a true survival story, and would hopefully either give me good techniques or at least give me strength to learn about someone else’s strength.
  2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne CollinsI’m sure this seems overdone, but when I think of a survivor kind of character, I think of Katniss. I’d want this book to similarly inspire me, despite it being a fictional character.
  3. The Survivors Club: The Secrets and Science that Could Save Your Life by Ben Sherwood This book has been on my to read list for a long survivortime. I think I discovered through another friend’s update or from a book club on Goodreads. Even though I haven’t read it yet, I haven’t deleted it and still plan on reading it because I really do think it’d be both useful, and maybe just one day…life saving.
  4. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon I recently read and raved about this book on Goodreads. I read it for Felicia Day’s Vaginal Fantasy Hangout. As long as it is, I loved the mix of historical fiction and sometimes racy romance. I’d want this after the emergency, to perhaps get some blushing and smiles going to make me happier.
  5. The Hounds of the Morrigan by Pat O’Shea This has and probably will always hold a special place in my heart. The mix of fairy tales, mythology, andhounds some urban fantasy make this an awesome story for me. I wouldn’t want to not have  a copy of this book that I randomly got years and years ago. So depending on the nature of the emergency, this book would need to be saved.

What are your answers?

What do you think?

    I just finished reading Unbroken TODAY (minus the epilogue, which I’ll read this weekend) and it is soooo good. Sometimes it’s hard for me to get into non-fiction but the story is so powerful; you definitely need to read it! Also love The Hunger Games, of course!

      Oh how cool! What timing right? I’ll definitely check it out; I understand the difficulty with some nonfiction, but I really do enjoy it when it’s done well.
