New To the Queue is a sporadic thing around here wherein I give you a tiny glimpse into 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: WILD WILD WEST! GENDER-BENDING! I HAVE BEEN WANTING THIS. And look at that cover!
What It’s About: “When Kate Thompson’s father is killed by the notorious Red Rose Gang for a mysterious journal that reveals the secret location of a gold mine, the eighteen-year-old disguises herself as a boy and takes to the gritty plains looking for answers and justice. What she finds are devious strangers, dust storms, and a pair of brothers who refuse to quit riding in her shadow. But as Kate gets closer to the secrets about her family, she gets closer to the truth about herself and must decide if there’s room for love in a heart so full of hate.“
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It came in the mail and I read the back and thought it sounds fun! Set in the south! Country music band! Romance!
What It’s About: Music has always been the main character’s outlet that she learned from her grandpa when things were tough. Now 10 years later she’s in a band with her brother out on the road and trying to make it big. She’s having a hard time thinking about the drummer of their band, who she has know and been in love with since they were kids, and he won’t even recognize her as anything but his best friend’s little sister even though she swears he feels their connection to. So she devises a plan to get him out of her system — to have just one night with him. Little does she know that her brother has made him promise to never go near her like that that could have major impacts on the band if that promise is broken.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Well, I’ve been getting into fantasy lately (obviously) and it was on a “you may also like” for something I was looking up and it looked interesting!
What It’s About: “Digger thrives as a spy and sneak-thief among the feuding religious factions of Gerse, dodging the Greenmen who have banned all magic. But when a routine job goes horribly wrong and her partner and lover Tegen is killed, she has to get out of the city, fast, and hides herself in a merry group of nobles to do so. Accepted as a lady’s maid to shy young Merista Nemair, Digger finds new peace and friendship at the Nemair stronghold–as well as plenty of jewels for the taking. But after the devious Lord Daul catches her in the act of thievery, he blackmails her into becoming his personal spy in the castle, and Digger soon realizes that her noble hosts aren’t as apolitical as she thought… that indeed, she may be at the heart of a magical rebellion.”
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It came in the mail which I was really happy about because I liked the author’s book, 17 First Kisses. Plus revenge storylines are always fun!
What It’s About: “In the small town of Ranburne, high school football rules and the players are treated like kings. How they treat the girls they go to school with? That’s a completely different story. Liv, Peyton, Melanie Jane, and Ana each have their own reason for wanting to teach the team a lesson—but it’s only when circumstances bring them together that they come up with the plan to steal the one thing the boys hold sacred. All they have to do is beat them at their own game.“
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I’m such a fan of JK Simmons (I’m still stabby that Growing Up Fisher was cancelled bc it was great) and after all the awards it was nominated for/won…definitely wanted to check it out.
What It Is About: “Driven by his demanding music teacher, drummer Andrew is determined to succeed as a jazz musician — even if it destroys his personality. Under the shadow of his father’s failed artistic attempts, Andrew practices until his hands bleed.”
The Theory of Everything
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I’ve been curious about it since I saw previews for it and then also all the award shows gave it high praise. I know it’s going to be a hard one to watch since Will’s father passed from ALS.
What It Is About: “With his body progressively ravaged by ALS, world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking must rely on his wife, Jane, to continue his life’s work as he faces various challenges. This affecting biographical drama centers on the couple’s fertile partnership.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: BECAUSE THE WORLD WANTS ME TO WATCH THIS SHOW. I kept telling myself that I want to read the books first but if I’m honest with myself that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon PLUS Will said he was game to watch it (this is SO not his thing) so I’ve got to jump on that!
What It Is About: “Originally airing on HBO, this live-action fantasy series — based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels — charts the violent efforts of competing noble families to gain control of the vacant Westeros throne..”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I loved their single Reflections last November when I added it to my musical rotation (yes I keep detailed playlists so I know when I first listened to things haha) and they just came out with a full album at the end of February! I’ve only gotten a chance to listen to it once as a whole so far. Fave songs besides Reflections thus far: Our Own House, Hurricane, Coffins, Queens
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I was looking where MisterWives was going on tour and saw they were playing with them so I checked their EP! Pretty good!
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: My friend Jen had been listening to her non-stop and we have similar taste! Her voice is so interesting!
