The Mondays Musts is a feature by Jessica @ Lovin’ los Libros! Every Monday, you post about your must read, must listen and must watch.
I’ve raved over this book so many times in different reviews, but here I am again to tell you that if you enjoy contemporary romance, you need to read How to Say Goodbye in Robot. I’ve read this book again and again, and I never get tired of it. Sure, it hasn’t got the fastest pacing in the world, but once you accept that, you begin to see all the amazing things about this book. If you want a story about two seemingly average, seemingly eccentric kids who really are just friends, then go for this story.
One of the greatest parts to HOW TO SAY GOODBYE IN ROBOT is that it’s so… everyday, and what I mean by that is that it completely captures the greatness of small moments, meaningless moments, where you’re happy but not happy enough to post on Facebook about it. You’re just there.
We clinked our bottles of beer in honor of Jonah the Ghost Boy. Myrna nudged the piano player, and he played “Happy Birthday.” The whole room sang along. By the end of the evening, Myrna and Larry were holding hands, Burt and Kreplax were trying to bribe the pianist to play “Stairway to Heaven,” and Jonah’s face… I’ll never forget Jonah’s face. A light poured out of him and became the spirit of the room, like a genie released from a bottle after centuries of darkness.
I love piano, but I’ve listened to Maxence Cyrin’s cover of the Fight Club ending track “Where is My Mind” more than once a day every day for the past two weeks, and I’m still not tired of it. In fact, I think it’s my new writing song. Here’s a quick link to the one-hour loop. There’s something so relaxing, and so beautiful about it.
This is music as well, but I couldn’t resist. Last week, I featured Winner and their single “Don’t Flirt”. I also mentioned that they’re having their comeback very soon. As a part of that, Winner’s agency is publicizing the new album, EXIT, by having the agency’s other singers covers snippets of certain songs.
As far as I know, covers by G-Dragon, Lee Hi, Dean, Zion T, Katie Kim and Taeyang have been released, and AKMU’s cover of “Sentimental” is my favorite, though Lee Hi’s “Baby Baby” is pretty great as well. AKMU’s spin on this song perfectly fits them: it’s fluffy, cute and light. I love Suhyun’s voice, and Chanhyuk’s additions make the song what it is. So glad they’re with YG!
