Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson

Repost for @aperfectmjk

#trappedonanisland will resume starting 12/1. You can use your current trappedonanisland Goodreads shelf, or you can create a holiday shelf and share that if you want. I started a WinterGames shelf before it was canceled, so I think I'm just going to roll with it. This is a great way to finish off those random yearly challenges. Let us help you pick those reads.

Allylu #WinterGames was canceled? How did I not know this??? @Clwojick 1w
Clwojick @Allylu Well be back for next year, we just had too many personal plans to be able to host the event in the way that we normally do. It takes a lot of time to prep, leading up to the event, and a lot of time keeping up with everything during. We didn‘t want to let people down by delivering a subpar event, so we felt it would be best to simply wait until next year when we could give it our all again. Sorry for the disappointment. 😔 1w
Allylu @Clwojick I understand completely. I wasn't trying to be critical, just surprised I hadn't heard about it. The other people that were planning to host various events can still do them and give you two a break. I love #WinterGames & #Scarathlon and especially being on your teams! I hope you have a rejuvenating holiday season. If there is ever anything I can do to help you out, please let me know. 1w
Clwojick @Allylu thanks for being understanding. I know a lot of people were looking forward to it, but so far everyone has been super understanding. Just means we‘ll have to make next year extra special! 😉 1w

#trappedonanisland will resume starting 12/1. You can use your current trappedonanisland Goodreads shelf, or you can create a holiday shelf and share that if you want. I started a WinterGames shelf before it was canceled, so I think I'm just going to roll with it. This is a great way to finish off those random yearly challenges. Let us help you pick those reads.

Here's how it works. ⬇️

aperfectmjk
- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island".
- 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 you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf.
1w
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.

I've been doing a pretty poor job reviewing books lately, but I wanted to thank @IndoorDame for the great #TrappedonanIsland picks!! I did read two of them this month - The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, & the Horse was a delight with such beautiful illustrations and gentle words. I also really enjoyed The Cartographers, although I was frustrated by the way a lot of the world-building didn't match/wasn't explained, which left me feeling a little ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) unconvinced about the villain's motivations. It was still a really engaging read, though, and I LOVED the concept. The other three are back on the shelf for now, but I'm sure they'll picked for a different month sometime!!

Thanks for hosting this challenge @aperfectmjk - I'm already excited about December!!

IndoorDame Yay! 3w
CarolynM I haven‘t read that Georgette Heyer yet, but based on the other mysteries of hers I have read it will be wonderful! 3w
TheAromaofBooks @CarolynM - Despite loving her romances, I have somehow never read one of her mysteries!!! I've had this one forever! 3w

I may have botched things up on bingo, but it turns out I finished all of my Oct #trappedonanisland picks. I give all the credit to @Laughterhp for picking great titles…that I really wanted to read overall.

It was fun and I hope to do trapped again sometime soon…assuming I can meet the deadlines and such!

@aperfectmjk

Laughterhp Wow! Can‘t believe you read all of them! So glad you loved them! 3w
aperfectmjk Yaaaaaaay! 🍾 3w

#scarathlon Week 4 = 9926 for #teamslaughter
What a fun month-o-reading! Hope y‘all had as good a time as did I!
As you can see, I did a bunch of bingo boards 😅 (and got tired of fighting with the collage app.. but nm)
Otherwise… I read 5/10 for #trappedonanisland, 2 #aam novels, got stuck in the maze, 22/31 for #31by31, 5 books about witches… & I still have to figure out how I did for the #autumnatoz. Stay tuned!
Tagged is favorite from week 4!

Catsandbooks Fantastic!! 🎉🎃 3w

My #TrappedOnAnIsland results. Really disappointed about my two DNFs because I was excited about them, but they ended up not being what I expected. Mexican Gothic was really good! Unfortunately I didn't get to the other two books. @Lizpixie @aperfectmjk #Scarathlon2022 #TeamMonsterMash

Lizpixie I‘ve just finished My Heart Is A Chainsaw and it was fantastic! Very strange, but fantastic👍 4w
SeaToSkyes @Lizpixie that's great! I'm still going to get to it sometime! 4w

My points for the last 3 weeks. A Grand total of 24,849 points! I finished only one #trappedonanisland book, but I managed to read 22 books (a few novellas) and 2 graphic novels. Always my best month and I'm finally out of this reading slump!
Thankyou for hosting! @StayCurious and @Clwojick
