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: I asked Twitter the other day what their favorite 2014 debut has been this year and this one popped up a bunch. Confession: I had never even heard of it before.
What It’s About: The main character is kidnapped and sold to trolls who have bound to their city by a curse from a witch because they think she is the one they have been looking for to break the curse. She learns about them and bides her time as she works out a plan to escape…until she falls in love with the prince she was bound to, realizes that maybe this curse can be lifted and finds herself caught in the political games of a secret rebellion.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I feel awful but I’ve had his debut novel sitting here forever and haven’t picked it up even though I’ve heard great things. I got to hear him speak at an even Simon & Schuster put on when his book was upcoming and I really liked listening to him talk and the stories he shared. So when this showed up in the mail this week I was like YEP DOING IT.
What It’s About: Matt’s been through a lot — his mom passed away, his dad can’t stop drinking and he ends up getting a job at a funeral home since his dad isn’t really paying the bills. It’s there he meets Lovey — a girl who has been through a lot more and teaches him a thing or two about how to keep going.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: It came in the mail and the press release said it was The Perks of Being A Wallflower meets Saving Francesca and I’m sorry but I’m always a sucker when you talk about my fave authors or books.
What It’s About: I honestly don’t really know because the summary is so vague!
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I saw it on the Goodreads Choice Awards and was curious!
What It’s About: The main character, after waiting on her date who never showed up at the bar, goes home with a guy she meets there. The guy follows her home as he was actually hired to kidnap her and extort money from her wealthy family. He deviates from the plan when he takes her to a rural cabin and evades the police and the people who hired him.
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: EVERYBODY ON MY TWITTER FEED SEEMS TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT IN ALL CAPS AND UNFINISHED SENTENCES BECAUSE THEY ARE OVERCOME WITH FEELINGS.
What It Is About: “A century after Earth was devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, 100 space station residents are sent to the planet to determine whether it’s habitable.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It just looked like a me kind of movie!
What It Is About: “On the way to meet a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam encounters Rasheen alone on the subway. While struggling to decide whether to send the young boy back to foster care, Sam looks after Rasheen and learns a few important life lessons.”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: Netflix suggested it to me and I’ve heard people say good things about it!
What It Is About: “When Sarah witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her, she assumes the deceased’s identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. Soon, she finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy.”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I randomly came across her new single and love her voice and started really listening to this older album.
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I’ve liked their previous stuff and really was looking forward to their new album after seeing them in concert this summer! Songs you should check out first: Lay Your Love Down, Black River, Back To Life, Last Bayou (Also..just saying check out their previous stuff esp The King & All His Men and Lion in Cages)
*This album was released on Spotify but it says November 24 on Amazon.*
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: Copeland was one of my favorite bands in college and I still really enjoy them so I definitely added their new album to my “to be listened to” queue. Really digging it though I don’t think it has favorite status in my heart.
