KadaGul @PuddleJumper How long does this challenge run? 3mo
PuddleJumper @KadaGul Matches will be sent out 25th Nov then you have until the end of November to pick the books, get them up and tag the person you are picking for. You can read the books picked for you whenever you like. It's done in December to work with #wintergames but if you want to wait until January or whatever, then that's fine. 3mo
aperfectmjk @PuddleJumper thanks for continuing with my idea. ❤️ I've had a rough year and really wanted to keep #trappedonanisland going, but life just sort of got in the way. I'll sign up for December. 🤗 3mo

PuddleJumper @aperfectmjk I've only done special ones for #scarathlon and #wintergames It's such a fun idea! 3mo
aperfectmjk @PuddleJumper I have signed up, but my Goodreads shelf is called WinterGames TBR, I had already started it before I thought about signing up. 🤷‍♀️ 3mo
PuddleJumper @aperfectmjk That's fine. As long as the link works then it's all good 3mo
AmandaBlaze @PuddleJumper Have matches gone out yet? (edited) 3mo
PuddleJumper @AmandaBlaze No, you'll be tagged when they go out. I've been ill this week so I'm a bit behind 3mo
AmandaBlaze Oh, sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better soon. 3mo
PuddleJumper @AmandaBlaze Your Goodreads account is set to private so your book list isn't visible. Could you change your settings, thanks 3mo
AmandaBlaze @PuddleJumper: It says it‘s viewable by anyone on my end. I pressed saved just in case I never did initially. Hopefully that fixed it. 3mo
PuddleJumper @AmandaBlaze It's still telling me the shelf is private 3mo
PuddleJumper @majkia Your shelf is empty 3mo
AmandaBlaze @PuddleJumper I tried everything I could think of changing in account settings, such as Anyone to Goodreads members. I hope that works because otherwise I don‘t know what to do. 3mo
PuddleJumper @AmandaBlaze Ok great! It's working now! 3mo
AmandaBlaze @PuddleJumper Yay! Thanks for your patience! 3mo
PuddleJumper @AmandaBlaze There's always something with Goodreads! 3mo

Isn't it annoying when the last 40 pages aggravate you so much that it brings down your overall feeling for the book?? This was a 4* read for me until the final misunderstanding, which left it as a borderline so-so. The main story employs a marriage of convenience, which is pretty much my favorite trope. Tessa and Leo are both likable characters, although I would have liked more from the supposed decades-long feud between their families. In the⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) end, there's a misunderstanding that Tessa blows WAY out of proportion, accusing Leo of some pretty terrible things. This would have made sense at the beginning, but now they've been living/working/talking together for months, so for her to still act like he would do this stuff felt really unreasonable. There's a big fight and they both say mean stuff, yet for some reason it's all Leo's fault. We get the absolutely infuriating ⬇ 9mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) “she doesn't want to talk to you because you were sooooo mean“ when Leo wants to apologize the next day (despite it honestly NOT EVEN BEING HIS FAULT), and of course HE has to make a grand gesture because Tessa “deserves“ someone who will “treat her like a princess!!“ No, Leo, YOU deserve someone who doesn't flounce off to pout for days instead of having an adult conversation. 🙄 So yeah, despite actually enjoying this book for the ⬇ 9mo
IndoorDame I hate that! I‘m sorry 😣 9mo

Clwojick Crushing that iSpy! And I agree! I know there‘s always going to be something towards to end of a romance to potentially tear the couple apart, but I HATE when it‘s just one person being an untrustworthy ass-hat. 9mo
Bookwormjillk Yes!! Drives me nuts. Not so easy to find an Indiana book though. 9mo

Just a bit late posting my May #Bookspin TBR. The five blanks were for #TrappedOnAnIsland, but I didn't see anything for this month. I'll have my kids pick something for me :)

@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I think #TrappedonanIsland is on pause this month as our host hasn't posted in a while. 😕 10mo
Pigpen_Reads @TheAromaofBooks Yeah, that's what I thought. That's fine 🙂 10mo

The group that was the big winner in April was #SeriesLove2023. I didn‘t realize I‘d read so many of the books on that list 🤓 I‘m also happy with the number of books I‘ve cleared off my shelves already this year.

Well my week went slightly off course. Instead of In a Dark Dark Wood for #aam I read The Farewell Tour because it came in at the library and I wanted to read it before it‘s due back! Dark Wood isn‘t in demand, so it will keep another week.

I read Still Waters & Three Men in a Boat for #trappedonanisland

This week I‘m dropping everything to read my ARC of The Road to Roswell, an upcoming release by one of my favorite authors!
