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 Babysitter Coven by Kate Williams
The nostalgia level for two of my favorite series growing up (The Babysitters Club and The Secret Circle) are high. Plus that cover is one of my favorites of the year.
Suggested Reading by Dave Connis
A bookworm fights back when her school bans some classic and meaningful texts. I’m excited for this one.
The Liars of Mariposa Island by Jennifer Mathieu
This follows two modern teens interspersed with their mom’s POV from the past. I’ve enjoyed work from this author in the past (The Truth About Alice — which was also a multi-POV).
I’ve long loved The X-Men, but I have to admit that my excitement for these films have waned over the years. The last film was not awesome, and this one got some pretty dismal reviews. I’ll definitely be watching this, but I can understand why the producers are putting them on the shelf for now.
Brad Pitt (who’s never really gone away) is having quite the moment. This is getting rave reviews and follows a man on a quest to find his father 20 years after his failed space mission.
I didn’t watch the show, but I imagine quite a few of you did. Hope this is awesome!
That’s what I’m excited for this week. Are you looking forward to any of these books or films?
