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 her well-received debut, Emma Lord is tackling summer camps and secret sisters (a nod to The Parent Trap I’m assuming). It looks cute.
“In this gripping YA novel about social media bullying and half-truths, one girl’s discovery of a dead baby in her high school locker room rocks an entire community.” We watched the case of the girl who was sentenced after burying her stillborn baby without telling anyone — imagine how traumatic that would be — which made this more interesting to me. I’m about halfway through it and am liking, but not loving it. I’m pretty sure I know exactly whose baby it was…we’ll see if I’m right.
“Angie Thomas revisits Garden Heights seventeen years before the events of The Hate U Give in this searing and poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood.”
A woman who wakes up in the hospital with amnesia uses her social media to find out the truth about what happened to her.
“A razor-sharp, wickedly smart suspense debut about an ambitious influencer mom whose soaring success threatens her marriage, her morals, and her family’s safety. Followed by Millions, Watched by One.” Influencer culture is so intriguing to me for some reason. I’m also a decent amount into this one, and again, am liking but not loving it. It holds my interest ok when I pick it up, but when I’m skimming through my Kindle to see what I should read for the 10 minutes before I pass out, it isn’t the one calling to me.
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Save the Date in this sweet and hijinks-filled rom-com about a teen girl who will do whatever it takes to find a date for her sister’s wedding.”
This looks…interesting. I’m certainly curious enough to check out the first episode. (Disney+/Series/1.15)
That’s what I’m excited for this week. Anything you’re looking forward to?
