Desert Island Discs Blog Tag

This is slightly different from usual book tags – sounds so much fun and perfect to shed some lights to bloggers’ unknown facts and tastes!

Thank you so much for tagging me, Noriko at Diary of a Bookfiend!  If you haven’t already checked out her blog, please do!  She has wonderful posts on daily musings (which I love!) as well as her book reviews.  Noriko is wonderfully friendly and is a super nice blog friend!

The Rules:

  • Link back to Bookbum’s original post, so she can see all your answers! (Remember to do this via pingback, she won’t get a notification if not!)
  • Thank the person who tagged you… show some love!
  • Come up with your answers
  • Then tag others to keep the tag going!


The Premise:

You are cast away onto a remote desert island:

You can bring 5 albums – what are they?

I have pretty diverse interests in albums, thanks to being a teen in the 80’s and having sons with pretty interesting tastes in music.

Plus, you have to take music that can suit any mood, right?

Abba-Super Trooper

    • Brand New-The Devil and God Raging Inside Me
    • Muse-The Second Law


  • Live-Lightning Crashes
  • Enya-The Memory of Trees





You can bring one book – which is it? You are provided with a Bible/other religious text if you want it, as well as the Complete Works of Shakespeare. No series!

Okay, I’m going to reread the Mists of Avalon.  Again!  It’s a huge volume, so it will take a while to get through.  And there’s always stuff I might have missed the first couple of times through, right?


You can have one luxury item (it had to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island) – what is it?

A hammock.  I can read, relax, sleep there, even.  A practical luxury!


I tag:

I have tagged some of my newest followers!  There’s no obligation to do the tag, but if you do, it’s a fun one!

Thanks so much for reading!

    1. I’ve read a few of the others, too…out of order as well 🙂 I do enjoy them because I really enjoy that time period and the whole priestess/druid storyline. I don’t get into them quite as much since Morgaine isn’t in them.


      1. It was a TNT TV movie special years ago I believe. Julianna Margulies played Morgaine and Anjelica Huston played Vivianne. It had a lot of differences from the book but it was an amazing movie and had beautiful music!


  1. Thank you so much for doing the tag, Jo-Ann! Oh, you are smart for picking 5 albums that suit your mood; I didn’t even think of that!
    I told you this to Nel, but I have never slept in a hammock, I wonder what it feels like!


  2. Excellent book choice!! ❤ And the hammock is a wonderful luxury item, but you know how much I love a hammock!! I love Muse and Enya, so nice! Abba I enjoy too Awesome island post!


    1. If you are a fan of King Arthur, you will like it. It’s historical, told primarily from the viewpoint of Morgaine, Arthur’s half sister. In legend, she was always portrayed as an evil witch, but here she is more of a victim caught up in powerplays.
