Picks’ Parade is a monthly feature on Artsy Draft in which I share my picks of books, movies and series that I want to read and watch during the forthcoming month.
Happy Monday! This post is ten days late, but I guess it’s better late than never, right? This month started quite busy for me. I had my graduation ceremonies and finally got to have more time to hang out with my family. And since then, I haven’t properly read/watch anything. But, today I’m going to share my monthly reading + watching list and hopefully, that will give me a boost of motivation to stay on track! 🙂
[su_heading size=”14″ margin=”5″]BOOKS[/su_heading]
This is one of February’s book of the month from Diverse Divers book club and I’m always all in for contemporary fiction!
More poetry book! Last month, I ended up reading a lot more poetry books than I expected, and even though I was not totally impressed by them, I’m eager to read more and discover a good one!
Blown away by Here and Now and Then by Mike Chen last month, I’m currently obsessed with everything time travel related. This one is going to be released this month too, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
One of the failed reading attempt from last month. Here we go again!
I’m so excited to get the opportunity to read the eARC of this book from E+! A thrilling debut novel? Yes, please.
Not gonna lie, this is one of that book that attracted me solely because of its cover.
My interest in this book started when I saw Ova’s amazing review about it. And I couldn’t be happier when I saw that it’s still available to request on NetGalley!
I read nothing but good reviews of this book. It digs on deeper family issues and also brings up sensitive topics such as eating disorders, self-harms and sexual assaults.

I failed miserably on my last month’s watching. And I’m not even sure if I can do it for this month but here’s my list anyway.
[su_heading size=”14″ margin=”5″]SERIES[/su_heading]
I’m really looking forward to watch this one because it looks like a more badass version of Happy Death Day. And the main character seems to have more personality too, so why not?

A series adapted from Gerard Way’s very own comic? Excuse me while I’m slamming that watch button. And aside from Gerard, the trailer of The Umbrella Academy is actually looks entertaining. Each characters showed their personality during the quick few seconds and I’m not gonna lie but I’m ready to stan this show.
