New To the Queue is going to be a sporadic thing around here wherein I tell you some of the books, movies, tv shows and bands I’ve recently added to my never ending queue of things to read/watch/listen to.
My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal
Release Date – June 2014
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I love afterlife-y kind of books + I received a review copy.
What It’s About: Cassidy dies and is trapped in this life grappling with the fact she’s dead and also trying to remember what happened surrounding her death as the last few weeks leading up to that are a blur to her. She remembers kissing a boy at her 17th birthday party but she can’t remember much else but she has a feeling it has something to do with her death that everyone thinks is a suicide.
The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi
Release Date – April 2014
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Honestly? Because Gillian sold me on it. On Goodreads she said, “Super powerful and heartbreaking, but also funny and charming in parts.” I like books like that!
What It’s About: Lexi’s mom found out that Lexi is in love with a girl and she’s pretty sure her whole family is going to fall apart over it. She spends her summer at New Horizons camp where she’s going to try and change and learn to like boys…until she falls in love with another camper and knows she’s going to have to risk giving up her mother’s approval or someone she really loves.
Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess
Published July 2013
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I forgot about it! I had requested it on a whim on Netgalley and got really behind on what I had on there so it got lost in the land of stuff on my Kindle. I had never added it to my official to-be-read list so I’ve just added it and am excited to have re-discovered it.
What It’s About: Twenty-somethings living and working together and just generally trying to figure out post-grad life in Brooklyn. It’s a series and OMG I AM SO EXCITED BECAUSE THIS IS EVERYTHING I WANT New Adult books to be.
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT THIS. I feel like I’m missing out.
What It Is About: “This modern-day reboot of Sherlock Holmes has Arthur Conan Doyle’s deductive genius moving through London as a Web-adept consultant to Inspector Lestrade, and Dr. John Watson as a veteran of the war in Afghanistan who shares his Baker Street digs.”
Dallas Buyers Club
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I kept hearing about it during the Golden Globes + I really love Matthew McConaughey a lot so immediately added it even though it doesn’t come out until March!
What It Is About: “Loosely based on true events, this drama follows Ron Woodroof, who refuses to accept he’ll die in 30 days when he’s diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. He extends his life and eventually helps many other AIDS patients by smuggling medications from abroad.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I have this thing for quirkier kind of love stories plus MUSIC related.
What It Is About: “Shot over the course of five days at Scotland’s annual T in the Park music festival, this unconventional romance centers on a pair of bickering rockers who are handcuffed together; 24 hours later, they’re falling in love.”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I AM OBSESSED WITH THEM. Electro-pop-rock-synth goodness. I love every song but especially Overdose & Restart.
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I really loved Warpaint’s album from 2010 (especially the song Undertow) so naturally I had to check out Warpaint’s new album when it came out two days ago. Songs I’m Digging The Most: Love Is To Die & Hi. If you are a Beach House fan, you might dig these guys too.
