The Weekend Line-Up is a mash-up of all the things I plan to read/watch/listen to during my upcoming weekend. This feature will pop up randomly, like that top in your closet you forgot you bought a month ago.
The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord
If you've been around here for a while, you know that Open Road Summer, Emery Lord's debut novel, is one of my favorite contemporary romances. No, one of my favorites PERIOD. Everything about that book - the friendship, the slow burning romance, the banter - is great, so I expect nothing but good things from The Start of Me and You. To be honest I can't even remember what this book is about, but just seeing Emery Lord's name on the cover is a good enough reason for me to pick it up.
Sherlock (Season 2)I've known about Sherlock for quite some time now - my boyfriend loves the show - but I never pushed myself to watch it due to the length of each episode. After watching The Imitation Game, I realized how much I love Benedict Cumberbatch as an actor. I guess this means I am committing myself to British accents (I love the way Sherlock says "obviously") and painful waiting!
Locke & Key, Vol. 2: Head Games by Joe Hill
After reading the first volume (Welcome to Lovecraft) of Locke & Key back in October, I've been meaning to get back into the series again. It doesn't seem like something I'd normally choose to read, but a ton of people have enjoyed it so I had to pick it up. It is extremely gory and violent - I would not recommend reading this up if you're looking for something nice - but the storyline is too exciting to stop now. I don't remember a lot of the details, so hopefully I am not confused :x
Rodgers + Hammerstein's CinderellaOne of my friends and I are watching Cinderella (the musical) tonight, so I have a strong feeling this album will be on repeat for longer than just this weekend. My two favorites (as of right now, of course) are "Ten Minutes Ago" and "In My Own Little Corner." It could very well change after I see it live! I'm actually really excited because I haven't seen a live musical aside from Wicked, so this will be a real treat. I still remember watching Disney Channel and listening to Brandy sing "Impossible" — does anyone know what I'm talking about?
What are you planning to read, watch and listen to this weekend? Are you a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch? Have you seen any musicals and if so, which ones?
