What I’ll be watching new next season (CBS)

CBS has released the trailers for their new shows coming this fall. From the bunch, I only intend to check out 4 of them.



There’s no way to escape this, the trailer looks cool, and I’ll give it at least a try 🙂 !!!

Kara Zor-El escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has concealed her powers. But at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Starring Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood and guest stars Helen Slater, Dean Cain and Jeremy Jordan.

Angel from Hell

I’m not sure about this one, and I’m afraid I’ll get attached to it only to find it cancelled prematurely. But I really like Jane Lynch and Maggie Lawson, and I hope that this one sticks.

When Amy enters Allison’s life and claims to be her guardian angel, they form an unlikely friendship and Allison can’t be sure if Amy is an angel or just nuts. With Jane Lynch, Maggie Lawson, Kyle Bornheimer and Kevin Pollak.

Life in Pieces

This just looks like a lot of fun, and I adore the cast (fingers crossed!).

A comedy about one family told through the separate stories of its different family members.Starring Colin Hanks, Betsy Brandt, James Brolin, Thomas Sadoski, Angelique Cabral, Dianne Wiest, Dan Bakkedahl and Zoe Lister Jones.

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders


I really liked this planted pilot and I’m really glad that Anna Gunn has stepped out…

The Criminal Minds spinoff focuses on a division of the FBI that helps American citizens who find themselves in danger abroad. With Gary Sinise, Tyler James Williams and Daniel Henney.

Very Good Lives: The Fringe Benefits of Failure and the Importance of Imagination (J.K. Rowling)

>>>>  Nº 27 on My 2015 Reading Challenge – A book you can finish in a day <<<<


J.K. Rowling, one of the world’s most inspiring writers, shares her wisdom and advice. 

In 2008, J.K. Rowling delivered a deeply affecting commencement speech at Harvard University. Now published for the first time in book form, VERY GOOD LIVES presents J.K. Rowling’s words of wisdom for anyone at a turning point in life. How can we embrace failure? And how can we use our imagination to better both ourselves and others?

Drawing from stories of her own post-graduate years, the world famous author addresses some of life’s most important questions with acuity and emotional force.

Sales of VERY GOOD LIVES will benefit both Lumos, a non-profit international organization founded by J.K. Rowling, which works to end the institutionalization of children around the world, and university-wide financial aid at Harvard University.

Oh my, she’s funny, and witty and marvelous! You can read this commencement speech J.K. Rowling gave at Harvard back in 2008 online, or you can watch the video below. But the book is gorgeous, the illustrations are wonderful and the sales of the book benefits the LUMOS foundation.

Also, a very easy read, it took me all of 30 minutes 🙂 !!!
