5 Books Challenge

Which book would I choose?
The first book that came to mind was The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey. Because, well, duh. It's a sci-fi novel that fits the above scenario perfectly. Although to say that I didn't really like the book -unpopular opinion here: couldn't get into it at all!- I have to say, there are some survival tips in the book that would be of great help. Therefore, the first book that I would grab off my shelves without a doubt would be The Fifth Wave.
Second book! I'd go for Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. No time to decide which book in the series! I'll just grab the first book that fits in my hand off the shelf. Hopefully it'll be the one that has the most fighting and fleeing scenes in the series.
I'm aware that there are people who haven't read VA yet, so here I'll explain why. Simply put, Rose Hathaway, the female protagonist in the absolutely brilliant VA series, is one of ze most kick-ass and awesome character that I've ever come across.
For the fourth book, I'd choose the Percy Jackson series, by Rick Riordan! Don't ask me which series. Both are fantastic.
1. Reading Percy would cheer me up. Get my mind away from the alien invasion, y'know. If you've read it, you'd know that the writing is downright hilarious!
2. LOADS of amazing surviving skills and lessons that I could *maybe* look up in the book(s). Don't know how I'd manage it though, being on the run and all.
3. SPOILER ALERT: Percy's been to Tartarus before, so a couple of aliens? No biggie.
After a lot of sighing and messing up my hair, getting all exasperated because I DON'T KNOW WHICH BOOK TO CHOOSE -- I would probably go for Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.
WHAT?? While people are getting all depressed out there, I'm in here, snuggled up in a cosy, dark hole where nobody will find me, peacefully reading Anna and the French Kiss, and going "awwww!" at all the cutesy parts. And all the while keeping my sanity in check.
'Lil FYI: All my mind could think of these past few days is ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Like, I NEED IT. NOW. Because crap, I didn't pre-order it -my fault, I know! Secretly, I was hoping my local bookstore would have it in a few days. Money is tight right now. Forgive me.
Which books would you choose if you were only given 10 minutes to pack your bag? Tell me in the comments!
