I spend an exorbitant amount of time looking for 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 the perfect post for my movie and book 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’m going to focus on the releases that I’m personally looking forward to.) So without further ado, here’s what I’m excited for this week.
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
I first read The Handmaid’s Tale back in college. Sassy magazine had reviewed The Robber Bride when I was in my later high school years, which quickly became my favorite book of all time, and then I preceded to gobble up anything by Atwood I could get my hands on. I actually need to revisit THT before I dive into this, but I’m pretty flipping excited.
His Hideous Heart edited by Dahlia Adler
This anthology is full of retellings of some of Poe’s famous works. I’m super excited for this one.
The Institute by Stephen King
I’m currently neck-deep in reading It, so I don’t know if I’ll be picking this up right away, but I’m intrigued by the kids with powers premise.
Rebel Girls by Elizabeth Keenan
A 90s feminist, YA novel. I’m excited to read it.
How to be Remy Cameron by Julian Cameron
Out and super likable Remy Cameron needs to write an essay defining who he is, but he isn’t sure who that is.
Don’t You Forget About Me by Mhairi McFarlane
A woman starts to work for the first dude she loved after getting both dumped and fired, only to find out that he doesn’t remember her at all.
Life is Short and Then You Die edited by Kelley Armstrong
This is another anthology–this one is full of YA murder mysteries.
These movies are crazy violent…but I kind of love them.
This has Bill Murray in it. That’s literally all I need to know.
I know I won’t see this in theaters, and I’m seriously debating whether or not I want to tackle this book. People who’ve read it: Is it worth the heft?
This is based on an article from New York Magazine about a group of strippers who “turned the tables” on their Wall Street clients.
That’s what I’m excited for this week. Are you looking forward to any of these books or films?
