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 Friday! This post is right on schedule this time, phew! Anyway, I didn’t read/watch as much last month. Weird. I’ve actually got more free time after my graduation yet it’s become one of my longest slumps ever since September. But, let’s change that this month! I’ll try to be more casual yet consistent, especially for challenges that I’ve (lowkey) failed so far. 😬
📚 Descendant of the Crane by Joan He ⇾ One of my most anticipated for April! The genre is something that I’m not usually read, but I’m excited to explore more this year. Also, I’m reading this for #YARC2019!
📚 Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connoly ⇾ Yes, I was driven by my high interest in mystery/thriller story and yes, it was also partly because of the number of positive reviews about this book.
📚 New Suns edited by Nisi Shawl ⇾ In this collection of short stories, there will be bits of anthology, fantasy, and science-fiction and everything’s written by people of color!
📚 The Center of the Universe by Ria Voros ⇾ Modern age story, space and stars, along with mystery? Sign me up!
📚 Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake ⇾ This will be the first series that I start this year and I think it’s going to be a perfect choice!
📚 The Ultimate History of the ’80s Teen Movie by James King ⇾ My first non-fiction read of 2019 and of course, it’s going to be cinema-related.

Happy March! I decided to give this platform another try, so here's my other attempt to be more active here! 😫 Anyway, here's a few books that (hopefully) I'm going to read this month. 📚 . Also, new post on my bio! 💻 . . . . . #bibliophiles #bookblogger #bookgram #bookstagram #bookworms #bookishlove #bookishfeature #booksarelife #booksofig #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #bookpassion #igbooks #igreads #instareads #bookobsessed #becauseofreading #currentlyreading #beautifulbooks #booksbooksbooks
Honestly, I’ve been failing so badly with my movie goals. I guess I’m just going to put a list of movies that are going to come out this month.
🍿 Captain Marvel ⇾ I’m actually quite surprised to find myself to be not as enthusiast as I thought I’d be about this movie…
🍿 Five Feet Apart ⇾ In between my mystery/thriller intakes, I need this type of (hopefully) fluffy movie.
🍿 Us ⇾ This looks super promising and it looks like it’s going to be better than Get Out (2017) so I’m going to be mad if it’s not, really.
It seems like this series was heavily inspired by one of the Black Mirror episode, Hang the DJ. But I don’t wanna judge too soon. It might have a different plot/twist, so we’ll see. But basically, the premise said, “In near future Paris, a dating app matches singles with their soulmates by mining their brain data, but decoding true love comes at a price.”.
And those are my picks for this month. Now, it’s your turn! What’s in your TBR and TBW for this month? Anything that makes you particularly excited? Anything that you want to add to your own lists after reading my post? Share it below! 😉
