Monday Musts #1

Happy Monday!  I am participating in a new weekly meme hosted by Jessica from Lovin' Los Libros.  Check out her fun blog as she talks about books, music, television and so much more!

 This Week's Musts:


Must Read:

If you read book blogs, are on Twitter, or basically live on the planet earth, you will have heard about this book.  I started reading it this week and I can honestly say it is worth all the hype.  With lots of action, adventure, and a fascinating new universe to explore, this book has it all.  If you enjoy books like Six of Crows, you will love this book.  

 Must Listen:


If you know me, it is no secret that I love everything Adele does.  When We Were Young is the second single released from her album 25.  This seems like it was written for an older singer, yet it hits all the right notes of regret and longing.

Must See: 


I am so excited for this show!  This is based on the Mortal Instruments novels by Cassandra Clare.  I think the casting looks close to perfect.  The trailers show great chemistry between the principles and lots of humor too.  Yes, the special effects look a little cheesy, but if it's a hit, I think the network will pump more money into this show and up the quality of the special effects in season two.  Make sure and watch it on Tuesday, January 12 at 9pm on the Freeform Channel (formerly known as ABC Family).

Now for the Blog Hop!

  1. I'm so glad you participated Ardis! :) I definitely agree with your Must Read- love Truthwitch! And your Must Listen is awesome of course, because- ADELE.

    And I am SO excited for Shadowhunters tomorrow! Woooo!

    1. This weekly feature is a great idea. I am so happy to participate in it! I do love Adele. I went to some pretty extreme measures to secure tickets to her concert in July, but I did it. And, I have been waiting nearly a year for Shadowhunters to finally arrive!!! It looks so good.

  2. I love this Adele song! I am also excited to see Shadowhunters. Great post, Ardis :)

    1. Thank you Jess. I guess Book Bloggers have great taste (Adele, Shadowhunters...). I hope to participate in this weekly feature again next week. It would be great if we can grow this into a feature that lots of people do.
