The Mondays Musts is a feature by Jessica @ Lovin’ los Libros! Every Monday, you post about your must read, must listen, and must see.
Divided by time. Ignited by a spark.
Kansas, 2065. Adri has secured a slot as a Colonist—one of the lucky few handpicked to live on Mars. But weeks before launch, she discovers the journal of a girl who lived in her house over a hundred years ago, and is immediately drawn into the mystery surrounding her fate. While Adri knows she must focus on the mission ahead, she becomes captivated by a life that’s been lost in time…and how it might be inextricably tied to her own.
Oklahoma, 1934. Amidst the fear and uncertainty of the Dust Bowl, Catherine fantasizes about her family’s farmhand, and longs for the immortality promised by a professor at a traveling show called the Electric. But as her family’s situation becomes more dire—and the suffocating dust threatens her sister’s life—Catherine must find the courage to sacrifice everything she loves in order to save the one person she loves most.
England, 1919. In the recovery following the First World War, Lenore struggles with her grief for her brother, a fallen British soldier, and plans to sail to America in pursuit of a childhood friend. But even if she makes it that far, will her friend be the person she remembers, and the one who can bring her back to herself?
While their stories spans thousands of miles and multiple generations, Lenore, Catherine, and Adri’s fates are entwined.

Admittedly, I’m not super duper drawn in by the blurb of this book. Historical fiction can either really be my thing or be just meh for me, and it tends to be in the latter. But hey, it’s Jodi Lynn Anderson, and I will read anything by the lady who wrote Tiger Lily. Many thanks to Kaitlin for the heads-up about this one!
Very few SVT songs hit me right off the bat, but Change Up was definitely one of them. S Coups, as always, gets on my nerves with his repeated use of “aye”, but everything else about the song checks out. Much love and appreciation for Woozi and his high notes, and I love the swag that both Hoshi and Woozi sport here. It’s very different from their usual sound/concept, and I hope to see more of it.
I don’t have the words to describe how much I love this movie. It just needs to be seen. The soundtrack is spot-on, the humor keeps everything light (relieving after the typical drama of superhero movies nowadays), and the acting is perfect. And, of course, the screenplay is to die for. I was so impressed–and touched–by this movie, by the development in each of the characters, and in the heart that Marvel was able to show.
