It’s time again for the Monday Musts! I love this meme and am so excited Jessica of Lovin’ los libros came up with it! Let’s talk about my Must Read, a Must Listen and a Must See for the week, shall we?

If Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing separating Skylar from art school is three months of summer…until Skylar’s mother loses her job, and Skylar realizes her dreams may be slipping out of reach.
Josh had a different escape route: the Marines. But after losing his leg in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be.
What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and, soon, something deeper.
Compelling and ultimately hopeful, this is a powerful examination of love, loss, and resilience.
I didn’t have anything I would consider to be a must read last week, so I’m deciding to highlight an older title that I truly believe everyone should read. It’s one of my all time favorite books. If you read YA contemporary and you’ve not yet read it, you need to do something about that soon.
I love this song so very much.
I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song
Is it time for the Olympics yet? Because after watching Simone Biles go beast mode right here makes me want to watch so badly. You know what else makes me want to watch the Olympics? This right here… The US Mens Gymnastic team.
Sam, Jake, Alex, Chris and John. Yes, please.
