The Monday Musts- The Song of Achilles, Chris Stapleton, and SNOW!
The Monday Musts is a new weekly meme I started and will be doing instead of Music Monday. This way I can combine my love of music to fit better with my book blog.
Thank you to Tonya for making me the above graphic to go with my new meme! <3
I would love for others to join me in doing The Monday Musts! I have included a Linky at the end of my post, so please share your Monday Musts!
It's super easy to do. What is a must read book? What album/song/artist is a must listen? And finally what has caught your eye that is a must see? (Can be ANYTHING. Other blogs, bookish things, pictures, etc.)
This week's MUSTS:
Oh goodness me, this book. It doesn't matter that I've read The Iliad and know Achilles' and Patroclus' fates. This book STILL gutted me. The book shows their growing up together leading up to the days of the Trojan War and how the impending war affects their lives together. It is such a beautifully written story and I absolutely loved seeing the two balance one another out.
Artist: Chris Stapleton
Favorite Tracks: Tennessee Whiskey, Traveller, Parachute
Chris Stapleton is a singer/songwriter born in Kentucky, but has made a name for himself here in Nashville. This past year he has exploded onto the music scene and it was only after he won so many CMA's that I decided to give him a listen. I absolutely love his voice! He has a very bluegrass, folk, rock mix and it's definitely unique!
Hello Winter Storm Jonas! I don't mind you so much here in Tennessee! We got a snow day out of you this past Friday and lots of pretty snow to look at!
Unfortunately Jack is NOT a fan of the snow. He kept trying to run/hop through it. It was quite amusing, but I felt bad for the little guy.
View from my balcony as the day wore on Friday. It started snowing at 9am and didn't stop until 5 or 6pm! They are saying this is the most snow Nashville has gotten since the Blizzard of '93!
Being stuck inside certainly makes for some good reading time! I read Shadow and Bone Friday night with a nice cup of hot chocolate and then started Siege and Storm Saturday night, but this time I finished off my bottle of wine!
What are YOUR Monday MUSTS?
