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.
Man I don’t know who decided to make November 5th the day ALL the books you’ve ever wanted were released, but I wish I could call out for the week so I could get to each and every one of these.
I’m a few chapters into this and am enjoying it so far. The style is similar to The Night Circus, but the story is unique.
The third and final book of the Scythe trilogy. I’m super excited for this one.
Magical woods and a beautiful cover, what more could you want?
Everybody in a small coastal town assumes that the latest death is the work of the sirens, but one teen girl isn’t so sure. I’m intrigued by the idea of sirens in a murder mystery that didn’t commit the murder.
Reimagining Arthurian legend to have Guinevere be a changeling sent to protect King Arthur by Merlin. I like the cover.
A witchy book about a girl sent to live with a special group of women.
A story of adoption told from the perspective of both the daughter given up when she was a teen and the girl who had to give up her baby. This sounds poignant.
So I read the first two books of the Raven Boys series years ago and then for some reason never finished them. I feel like I’ll have to reread the first two and then finish the series before picking this up (it follows Ronan!), but I’m still excited for this one anyway.
The wives of 70s NY gangsters continue the business after they get put in jail. I’m surprised this didn’t get more attention with these three actors at the helm.
I just can’t resist a scary movie, even if it looks as silly as this one.
Even though I don’t read everything King puts out, I do find that I usually love the movies/shows based on his work. As contentious as it is, I loved The Shining (the movie) and cannot wait for this.
I would never see this is theaters, but it looks pretty cute.
I don’t think Hollywood will ever tire of making these large-scale war films.
Small Screen Premieres
His Dark Materials
That cast! Anybody else excited for this one (I know it premiered yesterday).
That’s what I’m excited for this week. Are you looking forward to any of these books or films?
