The Mondays Musts is a feature by Jessica @ Lovin’ los Libros! Every Monday, you post about your must read, must listen, and must see.
A dramatic new novel about the bond between a teen and her twin brother.
Rain has taken care of Ethan all of her life. Before she even knew what autism meant, she’s been her twin brother’s connection to the hostile world around him. She’s always prepared—when her father abandons them, when her mother gets sick, when Ethan is tortured by bullies from school—Rain is the reliable, stable one holding them all together. She’s both cautious carer and mad chef, preparing customized meals for her family and posting crazy recipes on her cooking blog.
Each day with Ethan is unvarying and predictable, and she’s sure that nothing will ever change—until one night when her world is turned upside down by a mistake she can’t take back. As her new romance with her long-time crush and her carefully constructed life begins to unravel, she discovers that the fragile brother whom she’s always protected has grown into a young man who no longer needs her. And now, for the first time, she finds that she needs him.

This song is an old favorite, but I was reminded of it recently because Eric Nam and Cheeze did a remake of it. It’s from one of the first dramas I ever watched–Goong, or Princess Hours. Most dramas have relationship anthems, but this one was seriously a relationship anthem. The main romance is a hate-to-love type plot, and this song would play every time they began to fall for each other. To date, it’s one of my favorite love songs.
MY SHOW IS BACK. Or rather, it never left, but the rise in ratings for Running Man have given me hope for its continuation. This is my favorite clip from the seventh anniversary, an episode that seemed unreachable just four or five months ago. Jihyo is my favorite member. She consistently proves to be a formidable competitor, not just as a woman but as a member of the show, and this clip seemed fitting. I’m so proud of the cast and the show, and I have hope for the new producer. The changes have been bittersweet with Gary leaving and new people coming in, but it’s Running Man forever :’)
