Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
post image

Just a reminder that the Trapped On An Island challenge starts July 1st. I hope some of you plan on joining. Don't forget to post a link to your Goodreads shelf.

I have 261 books on my shelf... I wonder which ones will make it to the island. 🤔

#trappedonanisland

thereadingpal Oh damn!!! Need to update my shelf 7d
aperfectmjk @thereadingpal I have over 2,000 books on my TBR, so it's only about 10%. Got to start somewhere. 😆 7d
thereadingpal @aperfectmjk i have put only 10 books on it so far lol but i have so many more to add 7d

Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
post image

So I'm thinking of a new challenge. Lately I've noticed I've been reading a lot of newer releases and have been neglectful of some of the TBR books that have been on my list for years. I never seem to pick these books myself, so why not have someone else pick them for me? So here's how I'm thinking the challenge would work.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island". ⬇️

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. The more books on your shelf the better.
- Each month at the start of the month (starting in July) you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf. ⬇️
2w
aperfectmjk - You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
- You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading. ⬇️
2w
aperfectmjk If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below. 2w

Got myself an American vintage copy (1952) of Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl from shopgoodwill.com. Sometimes I like to browse their selection of books to see if I can find any hidden gems. Believe it or not this was one book I could never seem to find (used) for my collection. I see a re-read in my future.

Nine Lives | Peter Swanson
post image
Mehso-so

Finished my first book for May's #bookspinbingo. Boy, was this a let down. This was pretty uneventful until the end. Or maybe it's just that it lacked the overall suspense I came to expect. I gave it 3 stars because the writing wasn't terrible, the story just didn't deliver.

@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks I'm literally going to copy my own spoiler comment from when I read this book, because while it was an okay read, I definitely thought it was one of the weaker Swanson's I've ever read. I enjoyed the nod to Christie, but felt like the motivations were lacking - 2mo
TheAromaofBooks This book was a homage to Christie's And Then There Were None. However, in ATTWN the victims (theoretically) deserve to be killed because they have gotten away with with murder in the past. Here, the killer decides to murder the (adult) children of those he blames for his sister's death. Consequently this one really felt like a downer since (mostly) innocent people were killed for revenge instead of vigilante justice being handed out. 2mo

An interesting read. Most things we all probably realize have been lost, while others may not necessarily come to mind... such as typing. Really? People have lost the ability to type now? I would have thought that would have improved since the Internet. 🤷‍♀️

#ReadNonFicChal

WJCintron I think it's because they are typing with two fingers, quite fast because they are used to the phone/cell, and they don't bother to learn how to type correctly with both hands, like it's supposed to be. Maybe?
I've seen that happen a LOT! And it drives me insane, lol.

Here's another example of a novel I was enjoying up until the end.

While many felt Molly was a well developed character, I felt she never evolved.
