New To the Queue is 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!
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I hadn’t heard of this one (granted I’ve been bad about keeping up with new releases lately) and then at the beginning of the year EVERYONE was talking about how amazing this one is.
What It’s About: “Theodore Finch is fascinated by death, and he constantly thinks of ways he might kill himself. But each time, something good, no matter how small, stops him. Violet Markey lives for the future, counting the days until graduation, when she can escape her Indiana town and her aching grief in the wake of her sister’s recent death. When Finch and Violet meet on the ledge of the bell tower at school, it’s unclear who saves whom. And when they pair up on a project to discover the “natural wonders” of their state, both Finch and Violet make more important discoveries: It’s only with Violet that Finch can be himself—a weird, funny, live-out-loud guy who’s not such a freak after all. And it’s only with Finch that Violet can forget to count away the days and start living them. But as Violet’s world grows, Finch’s begins to shrink.”
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Dahlia told me I’d like it!
What It’s About: Two sisters, Claire and Miranda, go on an Around the World reality show to compete to win money and also get revenge on a cheating ex-boyfriend. The show has a twist and Claire finds herself potentially in an on-screen romance for all the world to see.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Well, in the summary on Goodreads it compared it to stuff written by Sara Zarr, Siobhan Vivian and E. Lockhart sooo I’m all about that. Plus I love that the plot has to do with a school production!
What It’s About: Rebecca gets a part in the school’s production of The Crucible and sheds her old reputation as she gets closer to the cast. As the group gets closer they vow they won’t date each other but an onstage kiss with one of the guys and her growing feelings for him make it hard. Soon on-stage and off-stage drama + a serious accusation threaten to ruin everything.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It was pitched to me and I accepted because I love travelogues plus I liked the idea of a mother/daughter memoir.
What It’s About: “Jennifer Coburn has always been terrified of dying young. It’s the reason she drops everything during the summers on a quest to travel through Europe with her daughter, Katie, before it’s too late. Even though her husband can’t join them, even though she’s nervous about the journey, and even though she’s perfectly healthy, she spends three to four weeks per trip jamming Katie’s mental photo album with memories. In this heartwarming generational love story, Jennifer reveals how their adventures helped relinquish her fear of dying…for the sake of living.“
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: With all the Golden Globe and Oscar talk, I had to save it to my queue.
What It Is About: “Michael Keaton delivers a winking performance in this dark comedy about a cinematic superhero trying to forge a comeback with a Broadway play. With none of the super-powers of his former character, the actor struggles to rebuild his career and life.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It popped up in my “recommended for you” list and it sure does look like a me movie!
What It Is About: “Wallace meets Chantry an animator and form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. There is no denying the chemistry between them, leading the pair to wonder, what if the love of your life is actually your best friend?”
The Good Wife
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It always seems to be nominated for something. It never piqued my interest when it first came out but it is now.
What It Is About: “Julianna Margulies stars as attorney Alicia Florrick, who finds herself forced to return to work after a corruption scandal lands her politician husband in prison. Though Alicia stood by him, she has a host of reasons to question their marriage.”

Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I had added their songs Cloudline & Lifting Away to my November playlist and then wanted to listen to the full album because MY GOD THEIR VOICES. LIKE ANGELS.
