What I’m Excited for This Week: 1.8.19

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

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus

Fraternal twins move to their grandmother’s town after their mom goes into rehab. The town is full of secrets and a missing girl…you know the drill.

Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Phillipe

A black teen from Cananda finds himself plopped down in Texas. At first he sees everyone in clichés, before realizing that the students around him are individuals.

An Anonymous Girl by Hendricks and Pekkanen

This is easily one of the most anticipated thrillers of the year.

New in Paperback 

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

A girl gets stranded in the woods with her adversary…the boy who broke her heart.

This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis

If I’m reading the synopsis of this right, a girl who absorbed her twin in the womb is starting to lose chunks of time (presumably because said twin is taking over her body). I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet. I loved Female of the Species.

Love, Hate, and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed

A Muslim teen’s life turns upside down when a terrorist with her last name commits the unspeakable crime.

DVD Releases


This is Jonah Hill’s directorial debut. It follows a teen in the…um, mid 90s, who spends his time with new friends at a skate park.

Castle Rock

Between Netflix and Prime and DirecTV and the hockey package to get Colorado Avalanche games…I spend way too much money on entertainment. So as much as I want Hulu, I just cannot justify having yet another paid service. I’m super excited for this show based on King’s writing, though. So excited.

In Theaters This Week



A scientist becomes obsessed with bringing back his family members that died in a car crash. So I kind of love Keanu Reeves. I just do.

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