If you could only bring three books to a desert island, which would you pack?
That is a really hard question! There are so many books that I love. I would want to bring books that I hadn’t read before, but by authors that I love. That way, I would be guaranteed not to be disappointed. I would pick three different genres as well. Romance, mystery, and action/adventure.
