The Mondays Musts is a feature by Jessica @ Lovin’ los Libros! Every Monday, you post about your must read, must listen and must see.
Every week, I pick my musts based on a certain theme. The theme for last week’s picks was the spirit of Fall! We’re now full-swing into a new season, and I wanted to pick musts that fit: a hauntingly beautiful song, a book to get comfortable with, and nature photography to captures how beautiful our world is in every season ^-^ (Okay, I know these themes are a little bit hard to guess, so I’m making a change. From now on, the theme will be only be one word, and I have to use the word within the post.)
Every book blogger has had a reading life before book blogging, and subsequently, we can’t review every book we’ve ever read. But a few days ago, I realized that I had never reviewed The Scorpio Races on the blog, and that needed to be fixed, so here it is: my mini review of this amazing book.
The Scorpio Races is the book that made me love Maggie, and to date, it’s one of the most satisfying stand-alones I’ve ever read. There’s just so much packed in its 409 pages, and I love it from beginning to end.
There are a lot of things to love in the book. A short list would include the writing, the premise (WATER HORSE RACING. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?), and the world-building, but what stands out the most for me is the characters.
Stiefvater’s characters always shine in one way or another, and I loved the way she brought two rough-around-the-edges people together. Ultimately, this story is about what Puck and Sean want more than anything else, and only one of them can get it. This is a must read for YA fantasy/paranormal fans.
I’ve loved this song from the very first time I heard it. There’s just something so otherworldly about it, and the lyrics lend to that. NaShow and Jang Jae In’s voices are juxtaposed perfectly, and while I didn’t love Kill Me Heal Me, I did think it had a great OST.
There’s a ton of innovation out there, but this one is especially incredible to me. What you see up above is called a Superman Crystal, and it can store data for billions of years, maybe even forever if kept at room temperature. You can read more about it here.
