Monday Musts #16

The Monday Musts is a weekly feature hosted by Jessica of Lovin' Los Libros.  Each week bloggers show what they are excited about this week!  Go to Jessica's blog to see a full list of participating blogs.

It was a relaxing weekend as my family gave me the most wonderful present for Mother's Day: peace and quiet!  I was able to read several books and finish one completely.  I also was able to do some blogging to get ahead for the week (yay, me!).  I am looking forward to a somewhat less busy week.  Last week, I attended two different author events at my local Barnes & Noble!  Plus I have been trying to catch up on reading ARCs and buying all the wonderful new books that were released recently.


Must Read:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10798418-why-we-broke-up?from_search=true&search_version=service

I learned about this book from one of the author visits I attended last week.. Author Siobhan Vivian explained how this book really had an impact on her as it tells the story of a break up through the mementos that one of the people collects.  I found it fascinating.  I plan on getting this book ASAP.

Must Listen:

I listened to this audio book a few weeks ago and was mesmerized by all the stories about early television and Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock from Star Trek).   I heard about this book during the Silicon Valley ComicCon.  If you loved Star Trek, then you will not want to miss this book.  I think listening to it is the way to go.  It is lovingly written and narrated by William Shatner, Leonard's lifelong friend.


Must See:


         



This YouTube video has a lot of great background information about one of my favorite Animes of all time: Spirited Away.  I used to live in Japan and I still enjoy cultural aspects of that country.  If you haven't seen Spirited Away, then please find a copy and immerse yourself in it's splendor!


What are you excited for this week?  Let me know in the comments.

    1. Yes, it sounds like an interesting way to tell a story. Siobhan Vivian raved about it during the author talk I attended.

  2. Yes, yes and yes! Why We Broke Up is so great (and completely heartbreaking). I haven't read your must read, but I love Star Trek and I think I'll pick the book up from the library when I get the chance. Ooh, and Spirited Away. Man, that was the first movie I ever really, really loved. Still rewatch it to this day, and it's good every single time. Loved the video!
