Desert Island Books – myatticlibrary

Good morning! Today on #DesertIslandBooks we have another one of my wonderful twitter pals being shipped off to the island of no bookish return. Say hello to the wonderful Jo, over at @myatticlibrary. She’s lovely and been one of my biggest supporters! Go give her a follow! 
Check our her choices below!
Rules:
DIB rules
1. ‘Tom Jones’ by Henry Fielding
This book is super chunky and I am struggling to put time aside to re-read it. Consequently, being stuck on a desert island would actually help me get stuck into this one. 
2. ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ by JK Rowling
Probably not an original choice, but who cares. I have to take some HP with me and I fancy re-reading the last book. 
3. ‘Death on the Nile’ by Agatha Christie
I need some crime fiction, so always best to pick something by the queen of the genre, and this is one of my favourites. 
4. ‘One of Us is Lying’ by Karen M. McManus
This has been one of my favourite YA books this year. There aren’t enough murder mysteries like this in the genre IMO. 
5. ‘Beloved’ by Toni Morrison
Another book I read a long time ago that I really want to read again. I was blown away by this book when I first read it and I’m interested to see how much more I appreciate it now I’m older. 
6. ‘I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings’ by Maya Angelou
Angelou’s entire autobiography is perhaps the most inspirational series I’ve ever read – she was a truly remarkable and fascinating woman. However, as I can’t take all six books in the series, I’ve selected the first book. 
A snack? Tea? Coffee?
I would pick unlimited tea and unlimited chocolate digestives – so good for dunking in a cuppa!
So, one album or playlist…
Ummmmm, okay I’m going to pick Ed Sheeran’s Divide. I’ve not listened to it as much as his others but enough to know I like it and there’s a track for every mood I think. (EXCELLENT CHOICE)
And now the horrible desert police have confiscated five of my books, I’ve decided I’d like to be left with ‘Tom Jones’. It’s seriously so chunky it’ll take me ages to finish. The one song I’d like the police to allow me to keep would be ‘Castle on the Hill’ – there’s just something about this track, it makes me feel hopeful and nostalgic and I love both the tune and the lyrics. 
Thanks for letting take part in this super tricky task Steph. I’ve loved reading everyone else’s answers so far. 
Thank you very much Jo for agreeing to be part of my scheme! Some brilliant choices and an excellent album choice!
