My Desert Island Discs


I’m back from a couple weeks hiatus and I could say it was intentional but I’d be lying. A reading slump pushed me into a blogging slump (as per usual) and life happened. Anyway you don’t need to know any of that. I might do an update at some point, but not now.

Now is ‘challenge time’ and a challenge I’ve wanted to do for a while now. Saying that, it’s not classed as a challenge. It just feels like one!

Today’s post is inspired by a question my good friend Rachael posed to me not long ago. She was reading The Island by M.A Bennett and at one part, it mentioned something about Desert Island Discs. If you’ve never heard of it, this is a very popular concept and radio programme on BBC Radio 4 in the UK. The idea is that you are on a desert island and are only allowed to have with you 8 pieces of music, 1 book besides the Complete Works of William Shakespeare and your choice of holy text, and 1 luxury item. Of course that question is, what are my Desert Island Discs?

After a long consideration, I think I have them.

8 Pieces of Music:

NB – None of these are in any order.

Sleeping Beauty Waltz by Tchaikovsky

Thank You For the Music by ABBA

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes from Cinderella

You Say by Lauren Daigle.

What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

Everyday’s A Celebration by Disney

Mr Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra

How Can A Moment Last Forever by Céline Dion

1 book:

Okay, so I am going along the same idea as Rachael here but I choose the bind up edition His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman because this way, I get the entire trilogy in one book.

1 luxury item:

My prescription sunglasses. That way I can always read comfortably and I won’t have to worry about the glare from the sun blinding me!

And that is it!

If you can narrow it down, what are your Desert Island Discs?

Thank you for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!
