"Three years!" I cried. "Were you shipwrecked?"
"Nay, mate," said he; "#marooned."
I had heard the word, and I knew it stood for a horrible kind of punishment common enough among the buccaneers, in which the offender is put ashore with a little powder and shot and left behind on some desolate and distant island. #QuotsyNov19

I have not seen Black Sails that #ANationOfThieves is from but I understand it is a prequel of sorts to Treasure Island. I read my older brother‘s copy when I was in grade school. It was this cover. #nostalgia

Because I've never actually read it. Plus islands, which have beaches, which is where I'd like to be, except for crowds, and traffic, and all the hot, so we're back to the deserted island thing again.

I‘d never read Treasure Island, but had this awesome old copy on my shelves, so I was set when my library book club picked it for June. I‘m glad they did! Even though I did get SO frustrated with the naïveté of the main character, as he keeps making the dumbest decisions that still somehow turn out for the good. But it‘s a darn good adventure. I hadn‘t realized just how many pirate stories refer back to this, and I loved reading the “source.”

I finished this a couple weeks ago now, but I kept forgetting to take pictures of this wonderful old Illustrated Junior Library edition I have! A friend was clearing out his shelves and I snagged this from his giveaway piles. I love the illustrations throughout, both color and line drawings, as well as the typography on the title page and chapter titles. It was such fun reading it in this old and well-loved classic edition!

Book #19: Upon graduating college, I was determined to better myself, and one of the ways I planned on doing that was by reading the 100 Greatest Books of all time. Treasure Island was my first official foray into reading all of those. Most of the book I read first were books that I incidentally had obtained from my grandfathers' collections...

Squire Trelawney, Dr. Livesey, and the rest of these gentlemen having asked me to write down the whole particulars about Treasure Island, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the island, and that only because there is still treasure not yet lifted, I take up my pen in the year of grace 17-, and go back to the time when my father kept the ‘Admiral Benbow‘ inn, and the brown old seaman, with the sabre cut, first 📚

What an adventure- long John Silver and Captain Flint- his feathered friend. Young Jim Hawkins saves the day and now has a tale he won‘t soon forget.

A classic? A classic. How can you not be interested in a book about a treasure hunt. Every little kid wants to be Jim Hawkins, hunting for a lost treasure on a crazy adventure. It's so good for the kids imagination.

#desertislandbooks

Eight of my chosen titles are longtime favorites. The last two are wildcard books, which I‘ve never read. I know, I know. It‘s risky! What if I don‘t like them? But I think I need the anticipation & hope that comes from the unknown. If I‘d only put one unread book on the list, I think I‘d place too much importance on it. It might be too riddled with pressure to be enjoyable. With two, the weight can be shared.

Craftylikefox Whenever I‘m in a bookstore I always pick up, We Have Always Lived in The Castle , but then I end putting back. One these days I would like to read it. LOVE # 2 and 3 😊 10mo
Amandajoy Which two are the ones you haven‘t read? 10mo
monalyisha @Amandajoy The last two! The Dovekeepers (I love Alice Hoffman but have yet to read this particular title), & Bitter Greens (which is *wholly* new to me but seems promising). I tried to choose a couple that were a little longer in length for the last two. 😉 10mo
monalyisha Thanks @BarbaraJean & @Craftylikefox! I deliberated very carefully. 🤔🤓 10mo
monalyisha @Craftylikefox I hesitated for a split second to put two by the same author on my list but...it‘s well-deserved. 10mo
Craftylikefox I love Neil Gaiman‘s works and both of those are absolutely worth it 😊 If your going to be stuck on an island you can have as many books from the same author as you enjoy 😊 10mo
Craftylikefox Funny side note Ocean at The End of the Lane had me obsessing over blackberry jam. 10mo
ladyneverwhere The Dovekeepers is so great! I love anything by Alice Hoffman and it's still one of my favorites by her. 10mo
monalyisha @ladyneverwhere I love her, too. A former coworker, who was the book-buyer for the little independent bookstore where I worked — & my reading muse, also loved AH & said “The Dovekeepers” was her favorite. She was instrumental in shaping much of my post-college reading taste. So, I‘ve got high hopes. 🤞🏻 10mo
monalyisha @Craftylikefox Neil Gaiman sometimes does weird things to you! I get it. 😆 “Anansi Boys” had me talking to spiders for... well, I don‘t know that I‘ve really stopped. So, for forever, maybe. 😅 10mo
