Monday Musts #15

Monday Musts is a weekly feature hosted by Jessica from Lovin' Los Libros.  Check out her webiste for the complete list of all the participants.

Happy Monday everyone!  I am actually writing this on Sunday afternoon, as I anxiously await our leaving for the Pentatonix Concert in Berkeley tonight!  Thankfully, it is not too far from where I live, but I will still be getting home late and I get up early on weekdays.  Here are my musts for Monday:

Must Read:

If you enjoy the kind of British humor one finds in Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, then you will love this quirky tale of a man mending his life through taking care of a wayward robot.  I will post a review of this book on the blog tomorrow. 

Must Listen:

I had already read the print book, but I heard lots of praise for the audio book.  I went through it quickly on a Saturday.  It has a full cast, and sound effects.  It is already a really moving book, but with the addition of the human (and not so human) voices, it has a poignancy that will break your heart.

Must See:


This is one of Prince's finest performances, from the 2007 Miami Super Bowl.  It encapsulates all the reasons why Prince was music royalty.  Thank you for your contribution to music.  You will be sorely missed.

What are your musts for Monday?  Let me know in the comments.

  1. My last must read was The Island by S. Usher Evans <3 I'm dying to read or listen (I'm curious as to how it works with the unique format) to Illuminae because it sounds incredible! Happy reading
    Enchanted by YA

    1. Hi Anne! I did both, I think each format has it's strengths and weaknesses.

    1. Yes, it is so perfect and shows you why he was considered to be the best.
