Monday Musts: Every Exquisite Thing, Radiohead & Recent Favorite Posts

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!

Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick

From Goodreads:
Nanette O'Hare is an unassuming teen who has played the role of dutiful daughter, hardworking student, and star athlete for as long as she can remember. But when a beloved teacher gives her his worn copy of The Bugglegum Reaper--a mysterious, out-of-print cult classic--the rebel within Nanette awakens. 

As she befriends the reclusive author, falls in love with a young troubled poet, and attempts to insert her true self into the world with wild abandon, Nanette learns the hard way that rebellion sometimes comes at a high price. 
ICYMI, I reviewed this one on Friday -- it's my second five star read of this year (after TRK) and I loved it!!

Loving the new Radiohead album and this first video directed by PTA.

  8. I have got to read a Matthew Quick book! It sounds amazing! And Radiohead! I'm not much of music-lover, but I like them a lot! :)
    Happy Monday, Eva!

  9. I havent very lucky with 5 stars reads this year so I need to check Every Exquisite Thing if you loved it so much :)

  10. oh wow a FIVE star read...that is such a high recommendation!! Five Stars aren't super common for me. It has to really effect me in a certain way. Great music pick though---her voice is so gorgeous. I love it.

  11. Reading this post, always gives me something to look forward to reading.

  12. I loved the one Matthew Quick book I've read and would love to read this one. My confession of the day: I'm a secret, closet Radiohead fan. haha

  13. I don't think I have even heard of this book. That's how out of books I am... #sadface
    It does sound really good and we usually like the same books so I'm adding this to my GR shelves :)

  14. *scratching my head at why I've not seen/heard about this book before*
    *feeling old and out of touch since I don't know Radiohead*
    So where have I been that I'm apparently missing all the good stuff? :)
    I just LOVE how you give mentions to other blog posts each week. It's such a great thing to do. I still have one bookmarked from last week that I'm excited to read. Thanks for the mention, Eva!

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.

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…
