Monday Musts: Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Robert Glasper & My Favorite Book Blog Posts of the Past Week


Monday Musts is a weekly event, started and hosted by Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros, which asks you to highlight your must read, must listen and must see!

MUST READ!
Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson



From Goodreads:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman teetering on the verge of thirty must be in want of a husband.

Not true for Manhattanite Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's crossing the pond with the only companion she needs; her darling dog, Bliss. Caring for a pack of show dogs in England seems the perfect distraction from the scandal that ruined her teaching career, and her reputation, in New York. What she doesn't count on is an unstoppable attraction to billionaire dog breeder Donovan Darcy. The London tycoon's a little bit arrogant, a whole lot sexy, and the chemistry between them is disarming. When passion is finally unleashed, might Elizabeth hope to take home more than a blue ribbon?
Oh how I ♥ this book!  Still one of my favorite contemporary P&P retellings!  And, bonus: it is the inspiration for a made for tv movie on Hallmark!!


MUST LISTEN!

I LOVE JAZZ!  Yes, seriously.  I listen to jazz probably 90% of the time.  One of my favorite current jazz artists is Robert Glasper -- he actually does a lot of fusion as well but the above is about upcoming tribute to Miles Davis that is the soundtrack to the new biopic starring Don Cheadle.

MUST SEE!


I've decided to dedicate this space to my favorite book blog posts every week since I don't do weekly recaps (I don't have the patience) and there are always posts that I LOVE!

What are your Monday Musts??

  1. Thanks for the mention, Eva! <3 And Unleashing Mr Darcy sounds adorable. I only watched Pride & Prejudice for the first time in January but I loved it so I think I'll have to add it to the list.

  6. I recently watched the movie version of Unleashing Mr. Darcy and even though it was super cheesy because it was Hallmark (and I'm completely obsessed with cheesy Hallmark movies) I thought it was super cute. Of course I didn't know about the book before hand I think Jessica was the one who told me about it when we were talking about the movie so I definitely need to get this read!!

  7. Oh I love that your dedicating your Must See spot to blog posts that you enjoyed. I always love finding new blogs this way & it seems you've got a few listed that I've not visited before so thank you, all the posts look really interesting! I don't listen to a lot of Jazz but know doesn't know Miles Davis? I did not know, though, that they were making a biopic with Don Cheadle (love him) so thank you for sharing that video :)

  8. Oh I totally need to read Unleashing Mr. Darcy! I've had a copy for so long, but just haven't had the time! I did recently watch the Hallmark movie and it was totally cheesy like Sheri said, but cute!

    I went through the biggest jazz phase in high school. I could NOT get enough of it! I still love it, but don't listen as much as I once did.

    That is such a fun idea for your Must See! I love it! Thank you for the s/o! <3 And I also love finding new blogs that my close bloggers friends enjoy, so I'm definitely going to hit those up!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
