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!
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It’s Aussie. I saw that Mands liked it and I ALWAYS add the books she loves to my shelf because she keeps me in the loop with the best Aussie books. And lately I have seen EVERYONE talking about it.
What It’s About: A guy and a girl, who are neighbors, find the body of a friend in the Melbourne zoo and realize something is not right with the scene and the guy, who is a troubled genius and interested in forensics, begs her to help him investigate. They find themselves in some trouble as they follow the trail. I also this there is romantic element to this thriller?
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I really like Beth Revis and want to support her decision to self publish this nove.. Plus it sounds SUPER GOOD.
What It’s About: Ella has a unique gift, with the help of technology created by her mom, wherein she can enter people’s dreams and memories and help people relive happy moments. Then things start happening: shes asked to use her ability by the government who wants her to influence the minds of strangers, she starts seeing strange things like the memory of her dead father and then the leader of the rebel group is certain he knows her and they once loved each other but she has no recollection of who he is.
What It’s About: I’m not too sure to be honest. I know it’s a character driven story that follows the senior year of a guy who gets dumped by his girlfriend who is leaving for college, is poor and whose future is so uncertain but he knows he wants to get away from his dad.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I think it was a “you also may like” to a book I liked on Goodreads.
What It’s About: Okay this pretty much the female version of The Change-Up (with Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds). The two main characters have been bffs since childhood. One is a single, workaholic who gets to be around celebs all day while the other is married and the mom of three kids. They get into a fight at their high school reunion, take some shots to salvage the night and wake up in each other’s lives.
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I saw it when I was scrolling Netflix and I was like OMG THIS WAS MY FAVORITE BOOK WHEN I WAS A PRE-TEEN. I didn’t realize it had been made into a movie.
What It Is About: “Following her father’s murder, a teenager goes to stay with relatives in New Mexico and falls in love.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: Will and I finished watching The Killing (LOVE THAT SHOW) and it recommended this to us.
What It Is About: “Tommy Shelby is the charismatic leader of a Birmingham, England crime organization known for its distinctive and lethal razor-brimmed caps. As the ambitious, deadly Tommy leads his crew to ever-greater success after World War I, they come to the attention of a chief inspector who is sent from Belfast to rid the city of its criminals.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I like a good romance and I do like watching foreign films.
What It Is About: “A married woman faces an emotional crisis when she learns that the former lover who rescued her from a concentration camp 30 years earlier is alive.”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I feel like so many of my Monthly Rewinds have included a Broods song on the music portion of it. Every single they put out I fall in LOVE with. THANK GOD THE FULL ALBUM CAME OUT THIS MONTH. Favorite songs thus far: Honestly the singles I’ve been listening to still are — Mother & Father, Four Walls, Bridges, Never Gonna Change
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: Hozier is another one I always seem to talk about in my Monthly Rewinds and FINALLY this month the full album is out. This album is PURE PERFECTION. Not a bad song. Songs you should check out first: Take Me To Church, Like Real People Do, From Eden, It Will Come Back
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: Another October release! I’ve been really digging Stolen Dance, Down By The River (shared on my June Monthly Rewind) and Flash Junked Mind since the singles were each released so I couldn’t wait to see what else they had! Fave songs besides the 3 I just mentioned: Fairytale & Stunner
