Desert Island Discs Book Tag



Hey, guys!

I was nominated by the lovely Nadwa @ Painfully Fictional to do the Desert Island Discs Blog Tag! Thank you so much Nadwa!! Also, make sure you guys check out her answers to this tag here, especially because our musical tastes are extremely different!


  • Link back to my (BookBum’s) original post, so I can see all your answers! (Remember to do this via pingback, I don’t get notified if you just tag my url)
  • Thank the person(s) who tagged you… show some love!
  • Come up with your answers
  • Then tag others to keep the tag going!



You are cast away onto a remote island:

  • You can bring 5 albums, what are they?
  • You can bring ONE book (not including The Bible (or other appropriate religious texts) or The Complete Works of Shakespeare, as they are already provided and NO SERIES), what ONE book is it?
  • You can have one luxury item (it has to be inanimate and can’t help you escape the island), what is it?


The 5 Albums

American Idiot by Green Day



Green Day is my oldest favorite band. I have been hearing it for 11 years now. And I just never got tired of it, like I did with a lot of other bands. I also enjoy some of the new songs but the old ones are still the best – just like Holiday, American Idiot and Basket Case!

Favorite Song: Holiday


Rise and Fall, Rage nad Grace by The Offspring



The Offspring is my favorite band at the moment. I literally listen to it every single day. I absolutely love punk rock in general but this is the best of the best for me.

Favorite song: You’re Gona Go Far Kid


Nevermind by Nirvana (super deluxe edition)



This is another band that I pretty much listen to in the daily bases. I mean… What else can I say? It’s just glorious!And guess what?! This edition contains 4Cds! So, Hell Yeah!

Favorite song: Come As You Are


The Phantom of the Opera (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)



This is one of my favorite movies and the CD is just pure beautifulness! Some years ago, it was also one of my most played CDs at home, since my mom loved it too!


Favorite song: Think of Me


Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces by Seether


This one is the newest addition to my favorites. I haven’t known it for as long as any of the others, but I love a bunch of songs from them! Plus, I know the album cover is not for everyone but I personally love it!

Favorite song: Breakdown


The Book


This one was a really difficult one… I mean… only one?!

It’s difficult to live with, especially because I love series! And that’s why I went with a classic. It’s another one of my favorite movies, and I would never get bored of it!

I read this book long ago and I intend to re-read it again this Winter! It’s just such a fantastic story…


The Item

I would have to go with a big warm blanket… I just have the need to get cozy and I am extremely against cold. So I could never me good without a blanket!

  2. Awesome answers, Joana! ^^
    I used to listen to all of these bands so much a few years back… I’m feeling super nostalgic now! (But in a good way 😉 )
    I was never a big fan of the TPOTO movie/musical but always enjoyed the soundtrack. Have you listened to Blink 182’s cover of it? It’s awesome! I think you’ll like it, considering your band choices 🙂
    Thank you so much for tagging me for this! ❤ I’ll try to get to it as soon as I can.
