What I’m Excited For: Books, Streaming, and Movies (oh my!) Week of 6.3.20

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. (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.

So, this post is a couple of days late. I didn’t want to post on Tuesday, but I just cannot ignore the plethora of new material out this week.

Book Releases

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

A death at a destination wedding in Ireland, with a nod to Agatha Christie. I’ve been turning to thrillers more and more lately as they seem to be holding my attention more than other genres. I started this a few days ago (finally) and am enjoying it so far. I’ve always been a fan of multi-povs.

Again Again by e. lockhart

I adored this novel. The first I’ve given 5 stars to in probably two or three years. My review is here.

A Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but I cannot say no to this cover (and sirens).

My Calamity Jane by Hand, Ashton, and Meadows

If you follow my regular Saturday posts, you know my husband has been subjecting me to watching the full Deadwood series (we finished it a couple of nights ago but still need to watch the movie). Jane is one of the highlights, imo. This looks fun.

You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson

Oh, that cover! This follows a black, gay teen running for prom queen for the scholarship money, and it looks adorable.

Burn by Patrick Ness

This is set in the 1950s in a world where poor people are forced to hire dragons in order to run their farms, which sounds fascinating.

They Did Bad Things by Lauren Forry

Twenty years after the murder of their housemate, five people are lured to a house to confess their crimes.

My Summer of Love and Misfortune by Lindsay Wong

Per Goodreads: “A novel about a Chinese-American teen who is thrust into the world of Beijing high society when she is sent away to spend the summer in China.” So…Crazy Rich Asians for the YA crowd?

If We Were Us by K.L. Walther

This looks like a cute LBGT romance set at a prep school.

Kissing Lessons by Sophie Jordan

Follows a girl “with a rep” giving lessons on how to attract boys. This looks like silly fun.

The Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin

I was a huge fan of Emily Giffin’s first three books, but after The One and Only skeeved me out so much, I’ve had a hard time wanting to pick up her newer work.

DVD Releases

Nothing of note.

Streaming/TV Releases

ag

Dirty John

I haven’t watched this series before, that that’s why I love a good anthology! This one follows the true crime story of Betty Broderick. (USA/premiered 6.2)

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

  2. I’ve only read one from Emily Griffin so far but I definitely want to try more by her. And If We Were Us sounds so cute!
