Monday Musts #17





Monday Musts is a weekly feature hosted by Jessica of Lovin' Los Libros.  Go to her blog for a complete list of all the participants.

It's been a few weeks since I have done Monday Musts.  I have been sick and also busy on the weekends (my normal time to write all my posts for the week).  Here are my Musts for this week:


Must Read:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26192915-outrun-the-moon?from_search=true&search_version=service

I am on a street team for this book so I was able to get an early copy.  It takes place in 1906 at the time of the great earthquake of San Francisco.  I was really moved by this book, as my great-grandmother was a teen in 1906 and lived through that tragedy.  This book made me have a better understanding of what San Franciscans went through.  It is also a story of the Chinese-American experience at the turn of the last century.  It may be hard for many of us to appreciate just how oppressive the laws against Asians were at that time.  But this book gives us a glimpse of what it must have been like. 

Go to my blog post for a longer review and three fabulous giveaways for this book!


Must Listen:


Okay, I know I'm late to the party, but I finally started using Spotify and I love it!!!  I really like how you can use playlists and can find playlists from other people!  Case in point:  I discovered a user called Wbdteenfest who has made playlists to go with all kinds of YA books from authors such as Morgan Matson and Nicola Yoon!  Go to Spotify and look this person up!!!  I am currently listening to a playlist called "Maggie Stiefvater's Music for writing to".  Awsome sauce!

Must Watch:



          

I really enjoyed 2010's Alice In Wonderland and I have high hopes for this sequel.  Tim Burton is a genius with visual movies (I also can't wait for the movie version of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children in October). 

What are you excited to read, listen to, or watch this week?  Let me know in the comments.
