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. For past posts, go here!
I know I mostly talk about YA on this blog but funny enough 3/4 of my picks this time around are adult (which I read as well!).
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Estelle raved about it!
What It’s About: Charley has it all…until she doesn’t after she breaks her leg in three places and everything falls apart. While she is out of work for a bit she finds herself bored and ends up finding she has a knack for helping people with their online love life by ghost writing for them. She finds her life starting to change after starts writing to a man from a client — someone who she has started to fall in love with herself.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I love adult historical fiction and it was a title that was at BEA (but I’m so sad because I didn’t snag it). It sounds so intriguing.
What It’s About: The main character receives a miniature house that is the mirror image of her own from her new husband and soon has pieces to fill the house that mirror their real household from a miniaturist who is unknown to her. Through the miniatures she starts to piece together her new family and their secrets.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It sounds INCREDIBLE. I don’t know how I came about it but I read the summary and I was like YEAH I NEED THIS.
What It’s About: The story of the love between a Panamanian boy (whose family immigrated 15 years ago) and a Mexican girl (who survived a devastating accident in Mexico) who live in the same apartment block with other immigrant families like themselves.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I got it in the mail and I love the cover plus it sounds like a book I would like because I LOVE books where the social hierarchy is challenged and a main character really explores the person they portray to others and they person they ARE.
What It’s About: Anika is super popular and keeps all the weird things and quirks about her under wraps to maintain her social status. When a boy, who would be classified as a loner nerd by her friends, comes back in the Fall looking extremely hot and full of mystery she wants to befriend him but knows what she has to lose socially if she does.
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: After I saw The Fault In Our Stars I wanted to see what other movies Josh Boone directed and I saw this one and it looked like a movie I would like!
What It Is About: “This quirky tale follows a year in the lives of the Borgens clan, which is in a tailspin thanks to the family patriarch’s obsession with his ex-wife.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I really, really like Cate Blanchett.
What It Is About: “The high life leads to high anxiety for a fashionable New York City homemaker in crisis who finds herself forced to live a more modest lifestyle in San Francisco. Woody Allen directs an ensemble cast that includes Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I wasn’t really interested in it when it first came out but lots of people have been talking about it SO I must give it a try.
What It Is About: “From the creator of “Weeds” comes a heartbreaking and hilarious series set in a women’s prison. Piper trades her comfortable life for an orange jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: First Aid Kit is one of my favorites since I discovered their songs Our Own Pretty Ways & EmmyLou. Their voices are magic so this has been on my calendar and FINALLY YESTERDAY it was released.
Fave Songs (So Far): My Silver Lining, Cedar Lane, A Long Time Ago
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: At the risk of sounding like a snob (which is NOT my intention), I discovered Passenger well before Let Her Go became the huge phenomena it has become. (LOVE THAT SONG). I’ve loved his stuff and I’ve been WAITING IMPATIENTLY for the new album and it just released yesterday and GAHHH SO GOOD.
Favorite Songs Off It (So Far): Heart’s On Fire, Scare Away The Dark, Whispers
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I heard their song Sound of Screams and had to listen to more!
Fave songs: Sound of Screams, Unkinder (A Tougher Love), Dancing’s Done
