Monday Musts: The Secret History, Orgone and Favorite Bookish 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!

The Secret History by Donna Tartt

From Goodreads:
Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt's cult bestseller The Secret History is a remarkable achievement - both compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.
I think I still have a bit of a book hangover from TRK and it makes me want to re-read my all time favorite book, a book which some people suggest if you love the TRC series and which Maggie loves as well!  I'm also posting later this week about my suggestion of what to read if you love the TRC series.


Jamiroquai’s "Alright" by Orgone

Jamiroquai is one of my favorite bands and I love this recent cover by Orgone!

This space is dedicated 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??
Please consider entering my GIVEAWAY for your choice of book from some of my favorites that I'm recommending all the time!


  1. I'm embarrassed to admit that I have not read a Donna Tartt book. I know, I know, I need to correct that. Love the video!

  2. I have't tried this author either but I hope this read is everything you are hoping it will be!

  3. The Secret History is super popular on Tumblr. I think it's that book. I need more details about it though because it honestly doesn't sound like something I would like.
    Happy Monday, Eva! :)

  4. TANK YOU for the shout out lovely! <3 YOU DA BESTEST! <3 I've been hearing lots of good things about TRK (And OMG it;s a #1 Bestseller ALREADY??? HOLY CRAP) HOLY. CRAP. :0

  5. I need to read The Secret History. I read The Goldfinch and liked it and have been meaning to pick this one up since then .Great video. Thanks for sharing all the links. Always love to check them out.

  6. I need to try a Donna Tartt book! They look very good. :)

  7. oh looks like I need to pick up this book, it sounds so INTERESTING!!! I did love Nick's bucket list of destinations. I do want to go to NZ...but I think seeing more UK and Europe I want to do first. Love the history over there and the people are so nice.

    1. I lived in the UK for a few years so I got to see a lot but so many places to go over there!

      I have been dying to visit NZ after reading Rosalind James' Escape to NZ series !!

  8. Thanks for sharing these posts, I spotted a few I'll want to check out!

  9. I loved The Secret History! I read it right as my son was applying to a small liberal arts college in the midwest... The book made me want to talk him out of going so far away for school. He wound up going to school in California (my state), but it was still 7 hours away from home. I am re-reading The Raven Cycle to work up to reading TRK. So Scared for Gansey!

  10. Thanks for the post. Just confirms that I need to read Donna Tartt.

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…
