TTT #45 Books that are Set on an Island


 Top ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic will be Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island. The old deserted island question. I am not going to do that question because if I were stranded on an island it will have an underground bunker that has a large underground library with every book in the world, however there a catch (course there is). Every hour I will has to push a bottom. As to why I don't know and if I don't push it I don't know what will happen. You got to love these mind games. 

This week topic is books that are set on an island.

The Long Guest

 Author: Jennifer Mugrage

Genre: Historical fantasy, family saga

POV: 1st person from multiple characters. 

Series: The Scattering Trilogy, book one

Summary: The year is 10,000 B.C. All mankind was united in one project: to build a great city with a magnificent tower that reached to the heavens. But the tower fell; God confused their languages, and overnight, their world dissolved into unimaginable chaos. Family groups, still tied by language, salvage what they can and flee to the countryside to survive. On the way, the family group of Enmer stumbles upon a highborn man, who does not speak their tongue. He lies paraplegic and near death, having survived a fall from the tower. The matriarch of the family insists they save him; he is a human being, is he not? But he is also hateful, demanding, and useless. But if they don't save him, who are they? And, if they do, he will leave them forever changed.

The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren

 Author: Gerald Brittle

Genre: Biography


Review: I don't usually read biographies. When I do it is on people I find interesting. Ed and Lorraine Warren are one of the most interesting couples. Back in the 1940s, they started ghost hunting. Going to houses helping families with hauntings. Mostly staying in the background with their work. It was not until the 1970s the Amityville Horror that Ed and Lorraine gain mainstream attention.
