What I’m Excited For: Book, Movie, and Streaming (oh my!) Releases Week of 9.1.20

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

None Shall Sleep by Ellie Marney

This follows two teens recruited by the FBI to interview teenage serial killers to help them catch a current murderer. This is my current read, and I’m enjoying it so far, although it’s a bit far-fetched. The 80s timeline helps a little, but I just don’t really believe the FBI would have two teens (even post-high school teens) work for them. Billed as Silence of the Lambs (and it is totally cribbed from the film) and Sadie (which I haven’t read). I’m going to add in meets Mindhunter.

Whispering Pines by Heidi Lang

X-Files meets Stranger Things. This MG looks fun.

The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes by Elissa R. Sloan

The world is reeling from the news of a former pop-stars suicide, but none more than the three remaining members of the group she was a part of in the early 2000s. A look at the darker side of celebrity.

Save Steve by Jenni Hendriks

Cam has found the girl of his dreams, Kaia, but she is dating some a-hole named Steve. Steve has cancer, and Kaia has turned to Cam to help her fund raise for Steve’s medical treatments. Steve knows what Cam is up to and vows to make his life as miserable as his. This book sound hilarious.

The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I enjoy Barnes’s writing, but I am still so annoyed with her for writing a cliffhanger for the second book in a series when she only had a two book deal. Regardless, her stories are always written at a nice pace. This one follows a girl who is written into an inheritance of a billionaire she didn’t know.

Scritch Scratch by Lindsay Currie

I love finding new MG horror novels because my students love them so much. This one looks like a super fun ghost story, with R.L. Stine blurbing the cover.

Beneath the Moon by Yoshi Yoshitani

This is a collection of myths and fables from around the world. I always enjoy these types of collections, especially when accompanied with beautiful art.

The Book of Hidden Wonders by Polly Crosby

A woman searches her father’s beloved children’s stories for clues about their family.

DVD Releases



Written and directed by John Stewart, this political movie premiering at home follows a democratic strategist helping a retired veteran running for mayor in a small midwest town. I adore John Stewart. 

Streaming Releases

I’m Thinking of Ending Things

I’m a fan of Charlie Kaufman and am looking forward to this. I’ve long meant to read this book and probably still will before watching this. (Movie/Netflix/9.4)

The Boys

I’ve heard great things about this series and plan on giving it a try. (Series-Season 2/Prime/9.4)  

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