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: When Tiff started talking about it at an event recently I swear the whole room was like OH MY GOD GIVE THIS TO ME NOW.
What It’s About: It is the start of a series of crime family fairy tale retellings. OMG RIGHT? This one is a retelling of Princess & the Pea and the main character’s family is one of 3 families who control the black market of organ transplants.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I’ve been meaning to read his books and it seems like a book I would like based on things people have said. PLUS Lisa is a major fangirl.
What It’s About: I don’t REALLY know but I’ve been told to go in kind of blind so I’m listening and not really looking.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: I saw it pop up on Goodreads one day and I like apocalypse-y kinds of books.
What It’s About: I don’t really know. I know we see the apocalypse and there’s an actor who dies on the night that everything goes to shit and it flips from past to present. IDK the summary sounded REALLY good soooo I don’t care if I don’t really know.
Why I Added It To My To-Be-Read list: Because ever since I binge read the Throne of Glass series and got hooked on fantasy EVERYONE has been hounding me to read this series!!
What It’s About: A boy founds out he is actually part of a magical peoples that live among the normal humans. There are feuding houses and a magical tournament and warriors!!
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I saw it when I was scrolling Netflix and I was like WHY YES I WOULD LIKE A PARANORMALY SHOW TO WATCH WITHOUT WILL BECAUSE HE HATES THAT STUFF.
What It Is About: “Sent to a seaside enclave to look into a suspicious death, FBI agent Audrey Parker discovers the town is a haven for people with paranormal abilities”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: I was looking something up on Fandango and I saw this in the coming soon section.
What It Is About: “Mia Wasikowska is affecting as adventurer Robyn Davidson, who crossed the Australian desert alone — and on foot — in 1977. Drawn from Davidson’s memoir, this drama depicts her arduous journey and explores her reasons for undertaking it..”
Why I Added It To My Netflix Queue: It keeps popping up under documentary suggestions for me and I always do love an interesting documentary and Netflix knows that.
What It Is About: “Critics called her delusional. Child welfare agents tried to intervene. But Laura Dekker would not be denied her shot at sailing round the world. This documentary captures the 14-year-old’s solo feat through footage she shot on her two-year voyage.”
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: I had listened to a couple of their singles and was waiting with anticipation for the whole album to come out and IT DID on the 16th. BEST PART is that I saw them live last weekend with Grouplove, Wolf Gang, Brick + Mortar and Vance Joy and fell even MORE in love!! Favorite songs thus far: You Haunt Me, Gold, Ghost, Too Far Gone
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: Back in August 2013 I heard one of their singles and added it to my playlist for that month but kind of forgot to check back when there album was out. THEN this year I heard a 2014 single from them and THEN I found out they were playing at the show I mentioned above with Grouplove/Vance Joy/Sir Sly/Wolf Gang and so I added their 2013 album to my queue in preparation. Favorite songs: Honestly I started to list them and it was all of them except Terrible Things.
Why I Added It To My Musical Rotation: OMG I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS ALBUM!! I was obsessed with Change & Waiting Game when I heard them & added them to my October 2013 playlist. Then I devoured every single. FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY. Fave songs: Change, Waiting Game, You Should Know Where I’m Coming From, Beggin For Thread
