The Weekend Line-Up #3: Daughter of Deep Silence, Orphan Black, and Walk the Moon

Friday, June 19, 2015

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.

Hi everyone! I am really thankful to not have to work on Fridays this summer. I have been spoiled all throughout college by only having classes four days a week, so the transition to working 40 hours a week for the previous two months was extremely tiring. Three-day weekends mean tons of time to explore, so I'm hoping to visit a museum some time in the next few days. But it also means free time to relax and catch up on entertainment :p

I found this while browsing The Strand bookstore (in Manhattan) last week and am really excited to read it. Plotting and revenge are two things I would be absolutely terrible at, but there’s something about it (when executed well) that interests me. Good things have been said about Carrie Ryan’s zombie novel, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, so I’m hoping Daughter of Deep Silence is just as enjoyable. There hasn't been a lot of buzz about this one, so I'm glad I get to experience it with no expectations.

I haven't watched a show in ages, so I thought I would start something that a ton of people have been raving about. I've been digging science fiction recently—hopefully this is what I'm looking for! I have no doubt I'll fall into the black hole (aka spend the whole day in bed wearing pajamas, clicking "next episode" until I've completed them all ...)

Ever since I came across Walk the Moon on Pandora last fall, I have been meaning to give their entire 2014 album a listen. I do love "Shut Up and Dance" though, and I was that girl who put it on repeat for days ... so it is TIME to do that with another one of their songs! Hehe. I guess I would describe their sound as indie pop rock? Like 80's or 90's music. If you like Walk the Moon, which similar artists would you recommend?


What are you hoping to read or watch this weekend? Are you into Orphan Black or Walk the Moon? What's the last show you binge-watched?


  1. I'm very much looking forward to reading Daughter of Deep Silence, particularly because I adored The Forest of Hands and Teeth series so dang much. And I've been meaning to start Orphan Black! I hope you enjoy it. I'm currently watching Alias, and that's been really fun for me :)

  2. I love this idea! I have heard pretty great things about Daughter of Deep Silence, and I really want to read it. Do you mind if I tweak this and use it on my blog (I will credit you, of course) for a week line-up?

  3. I started DoDS yesterday and have really been liking it. I've been needing something different than my happy contemporaries and this was the perfect pick! For some reason, I was never into Alias — do you think it's anything like White Collar?

  4. Hi Monica! That won't be a problem, go for it :)

  5. Hi Amarisa!
