What I’m Excited for the Week of 12.17.18

I spend an exorbitant amount of time looking at upcoming releases in both books and movies. I’ve been wanting to create a new weekly post for Natflix&Books for awhile and decided this would be perfect for the blog. On Tuesdays I’ll be featuring not just what is being released into the world of books each week, but also the movies you can look forward to on both DVD and in the theater each week (although, to be fair I am going to focus on the releases that I’m looking forward to). So without further ado, here’s what I’m excited for this week.

Book Releases

Hunting Annabelle by Wendy Heard

I’ve been hearing good buzz about this twisted thriller with an unreliable narrator at its center. Psychological thrillers are one of my favorite genres, but I actually enjoy few of them. I hope this is a good one.

The Disasters by M.K. England

A teen gets kicked out of the space academy after being there for only a day only to watch it get attacked by terrorists during his departure. He and the others on the craft making their way back to Earth are the perfect scapegoats for the attack, but they don’t plan to go quietly.

DVD Releases

A Simple Favor

I’ve been meaning to read this for monnnnnths. I’m honestly so excited for this movie that I don’t know if I’ll get to the book before I watch it.

Assassination Nation

This movie about girls who start fighting back after secret texts get out is one of my very most anticipated of the year. That sounds like normal YA fare, but I’m pretty sure the movie will be anything but.


This got pretty dismal reviews. I also have to admit that I don’t know a whole lot about the character beyond the (pretty bad) Spider-man 3. That said, I can look at Tom Hardy all day, so…

In Theaters This Week 


DC movies are obviously inferior to Marvel’s (fight me), but I’m looking forward to this underwater adventure starring a shirtless Jason Momoa (who did an awesome job hosting SNL last week).

Welcome to Marwen

I’m sure that this is ultimately uplifting, but the trailer for this made me sob in the theater (officially making me my mother, dammit).

Mary Poppins Returns

I’m honestly not super excited for this one, but I do love Emily Blunt and hope this does well for her sake.

That’s what I’m excited for this week. Are you looking forward to any of these books or films?
