Who doesn’t love the anticipation of new releases and things that they plan on doing? Every month there seems to be something new and exciting ready to hit the market for our consumption.
Being ready to embrace them with open arms is all we can really do.
To showcase this, I’ll be sharing my top 3 for each category of things that I look forward to this month right here, right now!
TO BE READ.
It’s time to pick up the fourth novella in this series before author Martha Wells explores a full-novel Murderbot story!
The second book in author Anthony Ryan’s Raven’s Blade trilogy comes out this month and it’s time to plunge right back in there! I haven’t yet had the chance to visit his Raven’s Shadow trilogy but if things go well here, I’ll be even more compelled to fix that! 🙂
The next beloved epic fantasy novel that I’ll be tackling this month! Despite it being another one of those unfinished series, I hope that there’s hope for that final novel by the time I catch up with it all! 😛
I’m not here to hate on readers who are looking forward to the 5th Twilight novel but I am curiously excited to see how readers will react to this one. These authors coming back to their successful series is never a good sign to me. And boy… it doesn’t help that this cover is extra ugly.
I haven’t read the first book but ever since this author showed up, everyone has been raving about her and I’m just very curious to know what’s it all about. Someday.
I read her novel Anatomy of a Scandal and I’ve been seeing a lot of people reading this new one lately! It has definitely piqued my curiosity too now.
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Publisher Dark Horse’s next big “Original Screenplay” release is none other than Alien and will be based off of the original 1976 screenplay by Dan O’Bannon!
With artwork done but Jason Fabok himself, this is one of my all-time most anticipated stories ever since it was mentioned at the end of writer Geoff Johns’ Darkseid War Saga! You have no idea how excited I am to finally see it being released!!!!
Not only is Mark Waid writing this, legendary creator Neal Adams will be drawing this one. It’s been a while I haven’t seen him around and am curious to see how this will turn out in the end!
TV SHOW RELEASES.
Season 1 premieres on HBO on August 16th, 2020.
Based on the novel of the same name written by Matt Ruff comes one of the most exciting horror series yet with Jordan Peel and J.J. Abrams (among others) co-producing!
Season 5 premieres on Netflix on August 21st, 2020.
Fans were heard all around the world when Lucifer was originally cancelled but Netflix saved the day as it offers everyone the chance to see it get a 5th season!
Season 1 is supposed to premiere on Disney+ in August 2020.
Besides promising fans an August 2020 release, there hasn’t been much information (or even a full trailer) for this highly-anticipated series that will begin Disney+’s Marvel Universe!
Similar to the last two months, most of the promising movies—at least to me—have been delayed due to COVID-19.
It feels very weird to say that we’re in August. I usually see it as the last month of Summer. The last month of vacation. The last month of humid and scorching weather. Sort of hurts to see it all blow by us without being able to truly appreciate the months before. That being said, I look forward to making the most of it now that I’m a 100% conscious of its existence. 😛 I need to crank up my productivity and try to make every second count. I want to use July as an example of a calm month that I don’t want to repeat out of fear of getting used to it too much hahah! 😛
This month also marks the return of my girlfriend from her trip to Europe where her family lives. You have no idea how much anticipation there is to that! Although she’ll have to quarantine herself for two weeks before we can see each other, the mere idea that she’s just on the same island as me is so much more reassuring! 😛
The good thing is that there’s still plenty of things to keep me occupied and a lot of them has me entertained in more ways than one. Here’s to an exciting month of August, guys! 🙂
Thank you all for checking out my monthly anticipation post!
Now tell me what you’re looking forward to this month! Any new releases? Anything exciting you plan on doing?
