Hello ladies & gentlemen,
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.
This is going to be a month with many firsts, beginning with this one. I’ve heard great things about his The Shadow Campaigns series and I’m excited to see what his latest novel has to offer!
Do you know the number of times I’ve heard people rave about this guy’s writing skills? Whether it’s A Man Called Ove or Beartown, he sounds legendary. Time to find out what his latest novel has to offer.
After reading and loving Night by Elie Wiesel, I heard about Viktor E. Frankl’s book and knew that this would be another short yet devastating read that I needed to complete in my life. Here I go.
I read every single novel Ruth Ware has written so far and I’m curious to find out if this will be just as good as her last book. I just need to find a copy now.
Good ol’ M.R. Carey is back with the sequel to The Book of Koli! Time to find out what adventures little Koli is going to go on next.
I first thought I was going to read his Shadows of the Apt series first but it looks like I’m going to start with his latest novel. Why not, right?
COMIC BOOK RELEASES.
Writer Tom Taylor (DCeased, Injustice) teams up with the artist behind The Boys comic book series Darick Robertson for a new graphic novel under the DC Black Label imprint and it features none other than our English buddy John Constantine!
Marvel unveils their latest Ultraman project with writers Kyle Higgins and Mat Groom teaming up with artists Michael Cho and Francesco Manna. I’ve honestly never looked into this classic character before but I’m curious to learn more on his legacy.
A brand-new creator-owned series with writer James Tynion IV and artist Martin Simmonds exploring a world where one man’s conspiracy theories all came true. How could I say no?
TV SHOW RELEASES.
From legendary director Ridley Scott comes a stunning new science-fiction series where androids raise a human being on a planet after the destruction of Earth. Does that not sound interesting? Consider me intrigued. 😉
This one needs no introduction by now. Season 1 was such a welcomed surprise (you can check out my thoughts on that here) and the hype for this second season only increased with every day! Are you ready for more madness?! And the arrival of Stormfront? 😀
Let is be known that the 1975 movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is one of my all-time favourite movie and book! Up until recently, I didn’t know I wanted a prequel centered around the just-as-insane Nurse Mildred Ratched from the creator of American Horror Story. Now played by Sarah Paulson, Nurse Ratchet looks just as phenomenal as ever before. If anything, this show does look very promising and incredibly eerie!
Based on the novel of the same name by Donald Ray Pollock comes an intriguing new movie starring both Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson! This is the time for those who don’t believe in Pattinson’s acting skills, based only on his reputation for his role in the Twilight movies, to change their minds before he blows your mind in the upcoming Matt Reeve’s The Batman movie. 😉
The first Kingsman movie (The Secret Service) was incredibly thrilling and had an excellent idea in their hands. The second movie (The Golden Circle) was one of the worst sequels ever, completely spitting on the first movie’s success and stuck to a generic Hollywood formula that didn’t work. This latest movie in the franchise, however, seems very promising and even has my man Ralph Fiennes leading the charge! How can I not have hope again? 😀
UPDATE: The movie has been delayed for a February 26, 2021 release…
Based on the novels by Nancy Springer now arrives on the silver screen the teenage sister of legendary Sherlock Holmes. Who other than Stranger Things superstar Millie Bobby Brown to play the role while Henry Cavill becomes our latest greatest detective? 😉 With a modern touch to the cinematography, this movie does seem to be quite promising and thrilling!
Like every year, I like to see September as the beginning of a whole new year. It’s probably due to all these years I’ve spent in the realm of academics, making back to school feel like the beginning of another new chapter. And with this feeling also comes a refreshing new wave of motivation that just makes me want to do more than I usually would, sort of like trying to compensate for all the procrastination I might have accomplished in the past few months. 😀
While it’s easy to imagine this month as a new chapter in life, it’s hard to not forget that the pandemic still has its grips on our routines and that nothing will ever seem normal for a very long time. The freedom we once had to do a gazillion things outside your home is no more and that simply forces you to look elsewhere for new challenges to set yourself.
I’m hoping that September will prove to be a month with welcomed change that will help pave the way towards achieving some of the longer term plans in life that I have.
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?
