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.
“After the shocking murder of senior Emma Baines, three of her classmates are at the top of the suspect list: Claude, the notorious partier; Avery, the head cheerleader; and Gwen, the would-be valedictorian.” I’ve been excited to start this one for awhile. I’ve only read the first chapter but am hoping to get into this weekend.
I enjoyed (but didn’t adore) One of Us is Lying, which is the only book by this author I’ve read. That said, I am quite excited for this book that sounds chock-full of family secrets. It follows three cousins who have been summoned by their grandmother, a rich and mysterious woman they’ve never met. I’m into it.
The fictionalized version of the admission scandal — especially from the view of Lori Laughlin’s daughter. I’m curious and love the simple cover.
“Melody McIntyre, stage manager extraordinaire, has a plan for everything. What she doesn’t have? Success with love. Every time she falls for someone during a school performance, both the romance and the show end in catastrophe. So, Mel swears off any entanglements until their upcoming production of Les Mis is over.” This sounds super cute. I’ve only read one book author (As I Descended — a queer Macbeth set at a boarding school that I loved) but have been meaning to read more.
After her parents divorce a teen girl swears off love, but she cannot help but be charmed by the boy she works with at a movie theater.
This show is hilarious, if a bit raunchy. It follows a group of middle graders and their hormone monsters as they deal with puberty. (Series/Netflix/12.4)
I didn’t watch the first season of Manhunt, which apparently followed the Unabomber case, but it sound interesting. This season follows the Atlanta Olympics bombing/Richard Jewell case. (Series/Netflix/12.7)
Ok, so I’ve never actually read A Hardy Boys book (I was always more into Nancy Drew), but I think I’ll check out this series. (Series/Hulu/12.4)
That’s what I’m excited for this week. Anything you’re looking forward to?
