The Mondays Musts is a feature by Jessica @ Lovin’ los Libros! Every Monday, you post about your must read, must listen, and must see.
Steffi doesn’t talk, but she has so much to say.
Rhys can’t hear, but he can listen.
Their love isn’t a lightning strike, it’s the rumbling roll of thunder.
Steffi has been a selective mute for most of her life – she’s been silent for so long that she feels completely invisible. But Rhys, the new boy at school, sees her. He’s deaf, and her knowledge of basic sign language means that she’s assigned to look after him. To Rhys, it doesn’t matter that Steffi doesn’t talk, and as they find ways to communicate, Steffi finds that she does have a voice, and that she’s falling in love with the one person who makes her feel brave enough to use it.
From the bestselling author of Beautiful Broken Things comes a love story about the times when a whisper is as good as a shout.
For one reason or another, I was against Zico for a long time, and I’m still warming up to his solos, but I respect his ability to collab with amazing artists. Of course, this collab helped. Even though I haven’t talked about it very much, I loveeeee f(x)’s Luna. I think she has an incredible voice, and she’s actually one of the primary reasons why I can’t stand with SM, which I talked about in Monday Musts 54. I’m so proud of Luna for being able to show off her gift and glad that she got a beautiful music video ^-^ You can check out more of her here and here.
When my family’s in LA, the trip almost always centers around food and family, and that means lots and lots of time in Koreatown–and the occasional jaunt out for the other amazing food LA has to offer (i.e., whatever you could possibly want to eat). But I didn’t fully appreciate LA’s significance to Asian America before reading this fantastic article from Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown blog. I’ll definitely have to try this trek across the city the next time in L.A., and I’m looking forward to gaining more inspiration for what to eat in the city after watching City of Gold soon!
