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 much, or a lot.
The genius of Premeditated is fairly quiet until you get to the end. Rarely have I read a murder mystery that was so quiet, thought-out, and well-executed. The ending was completely unexpected, and I had to do a reread of the story to see everything come together.
In addition to the turnaround of an ending, I also didn’t expect the relationships that really came to matter to me over the course of the story. The characters are a pretty solid group of friends, and each one of them is fleshed out until we can sympathize with them–regardless of their individual faults.
I’ll admit, the beginning of the story is pretty dry. There’s a fine line between having a sleepy kind of story and having a dragging pace. However, I still loved this story and it’s well worth pushing through for.
I’ve been a fan of Sungjae (and BtoB in general) for some time now (ever since I watched You’re So Fly and found their other music), and I thought I had a pretty good feel for their sound. Even so, this group continues to surprise me, especially with the release of Sunjae’s Playing With Fire. His voice comes out really well, and I hope to hear more from him in the future.
What a weird movie. As quirky as it was, it was pretty endearing. I fell for each character within the family, and I loved seeing them come together despite their struggles.
