Monday Musts #6

This is a weekly feature hosted by Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros.  Go to her blog to sign up with your own Monday Musts!  Come on, join us! 

Must Read:


  I just finished this book and it is a fun time-traveling adventure.  I love the setting, which is 1800's Hawaii, and there are lots of fun characters.

Must Listen:


Was Valentine's Day a bummer for you?  Well, listen to the audiobook version of Modern Romance, by Aziz Ansari and learn how to play the dating game in the digital age!  This audiobook is so fun to listen to.  And the book itself is an actual study commissioned by the comedian to study how technology has changed the way people date.  It really is a fascinating read listen.

Must See:


We have a ritual at our house.  We love to eat dinner and watch Family Feud.  I can never tire of the way host Steve Harvey can turn a ridiculous contestant's answer and spin it into comedy gold!  Here is is a recent example that Steve Harvey, himself, posted.  Most of it will never make it to the airwaves, but it is so fun to watch him! 

What are your musts for Monday?  Join the blog hop and let people know!

  1. I've heard great things about The Girl from Everywhere! I'm glad you really enjoyed it too. I don't read a lot of YA these days, but I really do want to read this one. That Family Feud video? Hilarious but it also made me roll my eyes. Was that woman paying NO attention? Haha.

    1. I hardly watch TV anymore, but I love Family Feud! Actually, It's Steve Harvey that makes it worth watching. That man can find the funny in any situation. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love Aziz Ansari! Have you seen the first season of Masters of None? It's absolutely brilliant! And that video was hilarious, where do they find these people?!

    1. I have NOT seen Master of None, but I will try to catch it soon. I've actually been married for a very long time, but I still found his book to be fascinating.

  3. The Girl From Everywhere sounds good. I want to try it because of the Hawaii setting.

    1. Hawaii & Pirates! What could be better, right? I will be posting a review of this book on Wednesday if you want a larger explanation.

  4. HAHAH that Family Feud video was so funny! I love Steve Harvey too! He cracks me up. I am so excited for The Girl from Everywhere! Everyone has been saying great things! Aziz Ansari is another funny guy! I'll keep that one in mind!

    1. Hi Jessica. The Girl From Everywhere is really fun and I love the setting in old Hawaii. Thank you for hosting this blog hop!

  5. I can't wait to read The Girl from Everywhere, I have heard great things about it! And listening to Modern Romance is such a good idea, I think I will do that. Great post!

  6. I love watching Steve Harvey on Family Feud. It's so much fun! Hope you have a great week!

    1. Yes, Steve Harvey is so funny. It's the one game show we watch at our house, and everyone here loves it. Have a fun-filled week.
