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, which is expressed by one word that’s used within the post. The theme for last week’s picks was come-back.
If it’s not Olympus until Percy Jackson walks in, then it’s not the Monday Musts until PJO is featured.
Even though I’m no longer Rick Riordan’s #1 fan and The Lightning Thief isn’t my favorite of his books, I had to start at the roots. This is such an incredible series that was very defining for what I love and look for in great middle-grade, fantasy, urban fantasy, and lit in general.
I also attribute some of my love for powerful friendships in stories to what I saw early on in stories like The Lightning Thief. Looking back, PJO doesn’t begin very deeply. It’s almost the Legend series in that regard, starting out purely as a good source of entertainment and then becoming increasingly important with each book.
Annabeth, Percy, Grover, and the entire crew are still near and dear to my heart, and I hope I’ll get this one in for a reread soon ^-^
SECHSKIES IS BACK! Okay, this is late, but I’m scheduling this in early October, and this is news that needs to go down in the Monday Musts. For those of you who don’t know, Sechs Kies is an older k-pop group that was popular in the late 90’s. They came back signed under YG Entertainment, and their lead producer for Three Words, their comeback song, was Tablo of Epik High. I didn’t know what to expect, but I really like the song right now.
It’s that time of year when things are getting crazy crazy crazy all the time, everywhere, and I think it’s good to take time to slow down and throwback to the simple pleasures, like consuming mass quantities of cheese. Just kidding. I can’t eat (not would I want to eat) that much cheese in one sitting, but I could make an exception for aligot :D
Which team are you, team aligot or team raclette? And what do you think the theme was for today? If you did a Monday Musts, link it below and I’ll check it out!
