new tv to watch Fall 2016

Linking up with Top Ten Tuesday, hosted over at my other blog The Broke and Bookish, to talk about tv today!

As I wait with bated breath with some of my shows to come back (Poldark, The Walking Dead, How To Get Away With Murder, Grey’s) I’m always scoping out new shows that I might want to add to my Fall lineup — especially after some of my previous Fall shows got cancelled/ended/got pushed back.

Here are the new shows out this Fall that I have my eye on:

Cloudwish by Fiona Wood

Cloudwish by Fiona Wood (Amazon // Goodreads)

Publication Date – October 2016

Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list:  OH MAN. I looooved Fiona Wood’s Wildlife and I had no idea that she had another one coming out this year here in the US (it’s already out in Australia). I saw the publisher tweet about it and I was like AHKLFHOIHALAH!!! how did I not know!?!?!

What It’s About: From The Novl’s website — “Cloudwish is a coming-of-age story of identity, feminism, immigration, and it stars a girl by the name of Vân Uoc. For Vân Uoc, fantasies fall into two categories: nourishing or pointless. Daydreaming about attending her own art opening? Nourishing. Daydreaming about Billy Gardiner, star of the rowing team who doesn’t even know she’s alive? Pointless. So what happens when Billy actually notices her? And seems to genuinely like her? Staying out of the spotlight just might be impossible. Beyond the drama of high school, Vân Uoc is also dealing with her mother’s PTSD from a traumatic emigration from Vietnam.”

Publication Date – January 2016

Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list:  I got a package in the mail from Riveted Lit (a new book community run by Simon & Schuster but they don’t only focus on their books) and this was in it and looked interesting and a few friends have been raving about it.

Publication Date- February 23, 2016


Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list:
It showed up in the mail and the title definitely piqued my interest right away and then I read the summary which looked interesting plus I never see YA set in the 70’s let alone Alaska!

Dora wonders if she can ever truly escape where she comes from, even when good luck strikes.

Radiance

Radiance by Catherynne M. Valente (Amazon // Goodreads)

Publication Date – October 20, 2015

Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list:  Honestly? It came across my Goodreads feed and I was like WOW THIS SOUNDS COOL AND LIKE NOTHING I HAVE PERSONALLY EVER READ. I’m all about trying new stuff and an alt history space opera set in a different Hollywood and world sounds prettyyyy cool.

What It’s About:Severin Unck’s father is a famous director of Gothic romances in an alternate 1986 in which talking movies are still a daring innovation due to the patent-hoarding Edison family. Rebelling against her father’s films of passion, intrigue, and spirits from beyond, Severin starts making documentaries, traveling through space and investigating the levitator cults of Neptune and the lawless saloons of Mars. For this is not our solar system, but one drawn from classic science fiction in which all the planets are inhabited and we travel through space on beautiful rockets. Severin is a realist in a fantastic universe. But her latest film, which investigates the disappearance of a diving colony on a watery Venus populated by island-sized alien creatures, will be her last. Though her crew limps home to earth and her story is preserved by the colony’s last survivor, Severin will never return..

 

 

The Shattered Court

The Shattered Court by M.J. Scott ( Goodreads // Amazon)
Publication Date- April 2015


Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list:
Rachel’s review sold me!

What It’s About:  “The royal witches of Anglion have bowed to tradition for centuries. If a woman of royal blood manifests powers, she is immediately bound by rites of marriage. She will serve her lord by practicing the tamer magics of the earth—ensuring good harvests and predicting the weather. Any magic more dangerous is forbidden.

Lady Sophia Kendall, thirty-second in line to the throne, is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed—or perhaps cursed—with magic. When a vicious attack by Anglion’s ancient enemies leaves the kingdom in chaos, Sophia is forced to flee the court. Her protector by happenstance is Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard, raised all his life to be fiercely loyal to the Crown.

Then Sophia’s powers manifest stronger than she ever imagined they would, and Cameron and she are inextricably linked in the process. As a witch unbound by marriage rites, Sophia is not only a threat to the established order of her country, but is also a weapon for those who seek to destroy it. Faced with old secrets and new truths, she must decide if she will fight for her country or succumb to the delicious temptation of power.”
