As some of you may or may not know, books, movies, and tv series are normally released on Tuesdays. Occasionally you may have a book or movie that is released a few days later. Since I can get a wee bit carried away when it comes to buying these goodies, I actually make myself a list of upcoming titles to help me budget my money. Since I love informing others about books, movies, etc., I decided that each week I am going to post a list of new releases. This post is going to be a little longer than normal since I missed posting last week's picks, and trust me, there were some really cool titles that you don't want to miss out on!
