It’s a good thing the world didn’t end a few weeks ago…because already there’s a lot to look forward to in 2013! It’s a new year for new beginnings, new entertainment, and so much more! ToastPop Girl has scanned the horizon for the some of the up and coming shows and attractions, and here’s what she has found and liked:
Coming February is the life-and-death romance flick Warm Bodies. If you haven’t seen the previews for this one, when the world is majorly populated with the undead, a zombie and a live girl fall in love with each other. Also out in February is Safe Haven, the next Nicolas Sparks book to hit the silver screen and stars Julianne Hough. Sephanie Meyer’s book “The Host” is the next to be produced for film and will be out in March. Disney’s next big production out that same month is Oz, the Great and Powerful. It seems to me the storyline is original, unrelated to the initial classic or the musical Wicked. I look forward to the next installments of Iron Man and Thor out in May and November respectively. And last but not least, the Hunger Games release in November, and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug release at the end of the year.
To say the very least, I’m excited for “Truth Stained Lies”, a new thriller and series from my favorite author, Terri Blackstock. A former lawyer and a judgmental investigative blogger find herself and her family in the middle of a murder investigation. It will be available on March 12th and is currently available for pre-buy on Amazon. In June, Sarah Dessen’s eleventh novel, called “The Moon and More” hits store shelves. USA Today provides some info on it, and even a previewing excerpt.
ABC entertains the art of competitive cooking this coming year with a show called “The Taste”. Sixteen competitors, from amateur home-cookers to professionals, concoct dishes for some of the world’s most renowned chefs. “The Taste” airs Tuesday, January 22nd at 8/7c. And if it’s not too early to be thinking about it, Good Morning America is revealing the next season’s DWTS cast on February 28th! Starting January 14th on the CW is “The Carrie Diaries”. This teen drama is like a Sex and the City prequel highlighting the backstory of the series star, Carrie Bradshaw, in 1984. It stars AnnaSophia Robb, Freema Agyeman, and Austin Butler. Mel B. even seems to make an appearance, judging from the previews.
As always the music scene is alive and thriving in the New Year with some new music from many of your favorite people. Just to name a few, expect new albums from Selena Gomez, Niki Minaj, Taio Cruz, Mumford and Son, Darius Rucker, Bon Jovi, and Josh Groban. For those interested in the inspirational music scene, Skillet, Switchfoot, Britt Nichole, Casting Crowns, are Chris Tomlin also a few of the many to have be finishing up in the studio as well. In addition, the long-time favorite Audio Adrenaline is said to be making a comeback this coming year with and new album and former DC Talk-er Kevin Max fronting.
Who doesn’t love the New Year? It brings a chance to refine and reinvent yourself with fresh goals and ambitions. And it also has in tow plenty of fresh beats, books, broadcasts, and big screen events! What is 2013 bringing along that you’re waiting for?
