Monday Musts: Summer Sisters, Doyle Bramhall II, and LOTS of Links


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!
Summer Sisters by Judy Blume



From Goodreads:
In the summer of 1977, Victoria Leonard's world changed forever—-when Caitlin Somers chose her as a friend. Dazzling, reckless Caitlin welcomed Vix into the heart of her sprawling, eccentric family, opening doors to a world of unimaginable privilege, sweeping her away to vacations on Martha's Vineyard, a magical, wind-blown island where two friends became summer sisters...

Now, years later, Vix is working in New York City. Caitlin is getting married on the Vineyard. And the early magic of their long, complicated friendship has faded. But Caitlin has begged Vix to come to her wedding, to be her maid of honor. And Vix knows that she will go—for the friend whose casual betrayals she remembers all too well. Because Vix wants to understand what happened during that last shattering summer. And, after all these years, she needs to know why her best friend—her summer sister—still has the power to break her heart... 
I never read this when it first came out despite all the hype but I was in such a mood for a great summer read that I picked it up over the 4th of July weekend and finally read it -- so much love!! Perfect summer/beach read!


MUST LISTEN!


Doyle Bramhall II - Green Light Girl


We saw DB2 a few weeks ago since our friend is playing in his band now and it was so fun! 

MUST SEE!
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!  I am several weeks behind so, um, there are a LOT!
What are your Monday Musts??

  3. So glad you loved Summer Sisters! It's been years since I read it so I don't remember details, just the main plots of the story, but I know I loved it.

  5. Damn it Eva, I may never get over sleeping through my chance to meet Ann M. Martin. I thought I had made peace with it, but apparently NOPE. I'll be over in the corner crying now.

    I also just spent way too long in the rabbit hole of the rest of the amazing links you shared! My Monday Musts for YOU? Well... The 100 Season 3 comes out on DVD in a couple days so I am rewatching. And Hamilton is in my head again. So umm you should probably not ask me, or if you do, know that my answer will always be "one of my problematic obsessions". 😂

What to Read if You Love The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

This & That – 2 Books with Strong Friendships, a Quest, and SHIPs!This and That” is a feature created by Megan @ Reading Books Likes a Bossand borrowed here with permission. Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.”

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
