The Isle of the Lost
The Isle of the Lost: A Descendants Novel | Melissa de la Cruz
Evil tree. Bad Apple? Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost--a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon's Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She'll just need a little help from her "friends." In their quest for the Dragon's Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain't so bad.

It was interesting to see what happened when the fairy tales were over. If i was younger i would think it was great. I have seen parts of the movie and thought the music was great.

Over the years, I‘ve been given loads of advice about books. However, one of the best bits is from my mom: “Don‘t look down on any genre of fiction if you haven‘t read it. You could find your next favorite in a genre you never read.” And that‘s why I‘m now reading a book meant for 5-6th graders 😂😂

ElizaMarie Your Momma gave you some great advice. And that set up looks so relaxing. 2mo
DameWandaKarenina @ElizaMarie Yes she did. Thanks so much, I actually photographed it for a friend who is starting their bookstagram 😂. Although, I do want that desk 😍 2mo

My local library has the graphic novel so I thought I‘d check it out since it‘s the #NWC #NovelWatchingCrew read for this month. I don‘t usually do graphic novels but thought I‘d see if it can kick me out of my reading slump. I also got the regular novel too. (And I thought about the audio since those are the only books I can seem to finish lately.

AkashaVampie That's awesome. I've never done a graphic novel. I probably should try one soon. 2mo
Bookjunkie57 @AkashaVampie I generally don‘t like them. This one isn‘t too bad so far but I don‘t like that there aren‘t any page numbers. 2mo
AkashaVampie @Bookjunkie57 I dont know if I'd like them. Comics aren't my thing. I would really like to love them tho. 2mo

Bookjunkie57 @AkashaVampie do you use your local library? Great way to try it out. 2mo
AkashaVampie @Bookjunkie57 no, I havent been there since my oldest was really little... probably like 10 yrs ago. I know I am a bad bookworm. I don't care for the smell of books and I dont do the library thing. Haha 2mo
Bookjunkie57 @AkashaVampie not bad, just different. Well my local has a digital option. You should see if yours does. All the fun of the library and you never have to even leave the house. 😂 2mo
AkashaVampie @Bookjunkie57 Haha. I do like the sound of that with my introvert ears! lol 2mo
Scochrane26 @AkashaVampie I don‘t do comics much either but have tried some for book challenges. I‘ve read & loved 2 graphic novels so far—Nimona by noelle Stephenson (she‘s done the new she-ra cartoon) & Pumpkinheads by rainbow Rowell. 2mo
AkashaVampie @Scochrane26 I've seen Pumpkinheads all over Litsy lately. it does look cool. 2mo

I about died. This must mean Disney had already put Dove Cameron in the role before Isle of the Lost was written.

#NovelWatchingCrew #nwc @AkashaVampie @AsYouWish great challenges!

CHALLENGE 1 I'm a huge fan of Cameron Boyce. He was my daughter's first crush and his image and voice instantly came to me when he first talked to Evie. You will be missed. RIP.

AkashaVampie Awww! I have watched him on a few things. I was shocked to hear that he died. I believe he was only 20 yrs old. I watched an interview recently for the 3rd movie about the actors and the director talking about Cameron. They said he was the most kindest young man that would light up the room when he walked into it. 3mo
AkashaVampie The director also said that he had to make them do dance moves over and over because every time they did it, he would only be watching Cameron because he was that good and a bright star! So so sad. I love the movies but its hard to watch them now that he has passed away. 3mo

So I liked it. I did the audio book version of it and the reader was so good. I really enjoyed hearing her.

I was trying to watch it but it isn‘t on my “Hulu” so I might have to rent it from amazon possibly. (But I‘m trying a no-spend thing this month so... I don‘t know yet, might have to wait till October)

Anyway until then I‘m gonna listen to the second book

Got pretty far into this one today! I‘ve been meaning to read this one for years; I started it a long time ago, but I figured I‘d give it another try. The details of this story are so rich and character development adds depths to the characters we know from the movie. Some plot inconsistencies among the brand, but overall, the story moves along nicely. 👍🏻✨

Took my first test ride in our new Peloton bike today and loved it! Any other Peloton owners out there? I didn‘t realize till I got on the bike how much I miss cycling and spinning. #LitsyRiders 🚴🏻‍♀️

Cooled down with a 1/2 hour walk around the neighborhood. Picked up two books at the FLL for Maya, and finally finished one incredibly long and annoying chapter in Furiously Happy about her trip to Australia. 😕 #audiowalk #LitsyWalkers

valeriegeary I don't have a peloton but I recently got an indoor trainer for my bike. It's not connected to any computers but I'm able to get my spin on during the winter now and that makes me happy. 10mo
RachelO That sounds like a massively productive day! 9mo
4thhouseontheleft @valeriegeary there are a lot of apps that provide a similar experience to Peloton, and all you need is a smart phone or iPad! I like all the class options. @RachelO My massive laundry piles end empty pantry would disagree. 😂😂😂 9mo
Kaye Great job on your bike ! 9mo
DarcysMom Sounds awesomely active! 👍😁 9mo

Work reading for content issues (part of my job is letting librarians know content warnings and something about this one came up).

But yeah, this movie tie in graphic novel is pretty terrible.

LibrarianRyan Ohhhh. What was the complaint? I have the real series on my shelf but haven‘t read it yet. 10mo
everlocalwest @LibrarianRyan it was a general 'not appropriate for elementary school' question, but the book is fine. Wasn't challenged or pulled. We work with a lot of religious schools and the helicopter parenting and need to shelter is something I'm always working with/against. There is a "seven minutes in heaven" closet scene, but the mean girl uses it as a scare tactic - there's no smooching. 10mo
LibrarianRyan @everlocalwest I get that. The first year I ran a kids book club a group of religious parents got together to have my book selections thrown out. It as a nightmare. I still remembering one mom yelling at me that her husband was going to read every book and if he objected to any of them she was pulling her girl out!! I met him 4 years and 3 girls later. He hugged me for bringing him closer to his girls. 🥰 10mo
everlocalwest @LibrarianRyan I was prepared for the worst when I saw your comment. Glad it went the other way!! I tell parents all the time that reading with their kids is the best way to turn them into readers. Sharing a reading experience is truly powerful. 💙📚 9mo

Test

Dragon Are you having Litsy posting/ commenting problems? 13mo
kgriffith I was making sure all of the functions are restored; my name is Kirsten, I‘m a LibraryThing librarian so this is technically a work post 😊 13mo
kgriffith So few new posts, testing 13mo

brandybear22 I haven‘t gotten any notifications for being tagged in a post since I changed to iPhone. Is that an app issue or do I have something off in settings, do you think? I do get notifications if someone is following me,fyi. 13mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 Ah, yep, so you‘d turned sound off on notifications on your Android, but they aren‘t separated out on iPhone. On iOS, if you turn notifications on and your ringer off, notifications won‘t make a sound but you‘ll get the banner (or alert). Notifications are also split between follows and likes, and comments/tags, which they aren‘t on Android. (These were original design choices we didn‘t make) 13mo
brandybear22 Clarifying: I am not meaning the sound. When I click on the little lightning bolt at the bottom of the app, I can‘t see any tagged notifications. I literally had to specifically go to this thread to see if you had replied. @kgriffith (edited) 13mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 Got it, sorry, that is both clearer and sounds more like a bug. Can you take a screenshot of your notifications window on the “conversations” tab and send it to me? (You can also send it to Litsy@LibraryThing.com, which is the normal bug-reporting method currently) [It would probably be unprofessional of me to invite you over so I can take a look... 😏] 13mo
brandybear22 @kgriffith you are going to be so impressed that I just learnt to do that... (Or not, I can see you shaking your head) 13mo
kgriffith @brandybear22 I am absolutely impressed — I debated whether or not to give instructions because I figured it wouldn‘t have been one of the first things you learned on your new phone. Well done 😊 13mo
brandybear22 @kgriffith alright, thank you for the help, I think maybe the screen protector(?) was keeping me from accessing the tab, so it just seemed locked... sigh... 13mo

I visited #PrintAndPageBooksellers today. This is part 1 of the book haul - all paid for by trade-in credit! Kiddo is thrilled - especially with the #Descendants books.
