Fangirl Friday: September Movie Releases + MORE!

Posted August 26, 2016 by Lupe


Well it was a successful first week of college for me and I hope it stays like this. Sadly, it won’t but you know. We can always look forward to winter break.

But let’s look at it this way… we are one month closer to winter break! It’s almost September and that means NEW MOVIES!!!

Title: Before I Wake
Release Date: September 9
Rated: PG-13
Synopsis: A young couple adopt an orphaned child whose dreams – and nightmares – manifest physically as he sleeps.




Title: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Release Date: September 30
Rated: PG-13
Synopsis: When Jacob discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers.

Ever seen the show Pretty Little Liars? Ezra? Any bells ringing?

Well Ian Harding who plays Ezra on the show just announced that he will be releasing a new book called Odd Birds!

It will be about his life in Hollywood! It will also include funny stuff from the show Pretty Little Liars. I’m actually excited about his book because he is truly a character from what I have seen on Youtube. He’s usually on his costar’s channel, Shay Mitchell.

I’m sure you guys have seen this floating around but I’m SUCH a big Disney fan and I have to share this!

This girl is great and man I wish I did something this awesome my senior year. Bummer.

Time to mention what great books are out there now! These were released on August 23!

Title: Spontaneous
Author: Aaron Starmer
Synopsis: A darkly funny and spectacularly original exploration of friendship, goodbyes—and spontaneous combustion.

Mara Carlyle’s senior year is going as normally as could be expected, until—wa-bam!—fellow senior Katelyn Ogden explodes during third period pre-calc.

Katelyn is the first, but she won’t be the last teenager to blow up without warning or explanation. As the seniors continue to pop like balloons and the national eye turns to Mara’s suburban New Jersey hometown, the FBI rolls in and the search for a reason is on.

Whip-smart and blunt, Mara narrates the end of their world as she knows it while trying to make it to graduation in one piece. It’s an explosive year punctuated by romance, quarantine, lifelong friendship, hallucinogenic mushrooms, bloggers, ice cream trucks, “Snooze Button™,” Bon Jovi, and the filthiest language you’ve ever heard from the President of the United States.

Aaron Starmer rewrites the rulebook with Spontaneous. But beneath the outrageous is a ridiculously funny, super honest, and truly moving exemplar of the absurd and raw truths of being a teenager in the 21st century . . . and the heartache of saying goodbye.

Title: Thieving Weasels
Author: Billy Taylor
Synopsis: Skip O’Rourke is dragged into one last con . . . but he doesn’t know the con’s on him in this funny, page-turning debut YA for fans of Winger and Ocean’s Eleven. 

Cameron Smith attends an elite boarding school and has just been accepted to Princeton University alongside his beautiful girlfriend, Claire. Life for Cameron would be perfect, except that Cameron Smith is actually Skip O’Rourke, and Skip O’Rourke ran away from his grifter family four years ago…along with $100,000 of their “earnings” (because starting a new life is not cheap). But when his uncle Wonderful tracks him down, Skip’s given an ultimatum: come back to the family for one last con, or say good-bye to life as Cameron. 

“One last con” is easier said than done when Skip’s family is just as merciless (and just as manipulative) as they’ve always been, and everyone around him is lying. Skip may have given up on crime, but there’s one lesson he hasn’t forgotten: always know your mark. And if you don’t know who your mark is . . . it’s probably you. 

Witty and irresistibly readable, this standout debut will always keep you guessing.
