What I’m Excited For: Book, Movie, and Streaming (oh my!) Releases Week of 8.25.20

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.

Book Releases

Kind of a Big Deal by Shannon Hale

A teen is able to jump in and out of different stories becoming different characters. To be honest, this is getting dismal reviews, but I’m still going to give it a try.

Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

This sounds like a pretty classic horror story with a YA twist. A clown starts to take out kids in a small (I’m assuming mid-western) town.

Now That I’ve Found You by Kristina Forest

A teen on the verge of her big break with a very famous grandma tries to find her way back into the limelight after getting blacklisted.

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles

I don’t pick up a lot of fantasy, but the synopsis of magicians facing off in daring games to be the headliner of a circus sounded fun (if a little too reminiscent of The Night Circus).

New in PB

Sadie by Courtney Summers

A missing sister and a Serial-like podcast following the clues. I have an arc of this but will definitely be snagging this in PB. 

DVD Releases

King of Staten Island

I’m pretty excited for this semi-autobiographical look at Pete Davidson’s life growing up in Staten Island after the death of his father during 9/11. 

Streaming Releases

Nothing of note

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

  1. The first time I saw Clown in a Cornfield, I was instantly interested. I never checked what it is about but since I’ve been seeing it a lot, I would like to assume that it’s a good horror. I hope.
