Welcome first day of Fall 2021…. and with it come lots of new books!
Last year, aka Pandemic Year 1, while self-isolating and staying indoors as much as possible, I threw myself into reading … print books, magazines, ebooks, and audiobooks. So while it was a stressful year on a whole (for all of us), I really enjoyed being able to prioritize reading. This year, what’s become Pandemic Year 2, I wanted to get outside a bit, but also continue to be on the safe side, which meant road-tripping and hiking the great outdoors. Therefore, I’ve leaned more towards audiobooks.
Below are some titles — with accompanying links to the print, ebooks, and audiobooks editions — that I personally am looking forward to this Fall, presented here in order of release date, starting with those releasing in September 2021. After this main list, I’ve included some titles that came out earlier this year that you might have missed, as well as some themed Cookbooks, Crafts, and Guidebooks, along with an Audiobook Spotlight. And with the Fall comes, of course, Halloween and some spookier picks!

I don’t know about you, but I can think of few trailers that make me want to see a movie less than Pan, yet another attempt to profit from J.M. Barrie’s story of the lost boys, Neverland, and Captain Hook. Maybe it’s my daughter’s insistence on watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates 6-times a day, feeling hung over from ABC’s Once Upon A Time‘s use of the character, or just shocked by how awful Hugh Jackman looks, but I have no desire to see that movie. The film, opening next month, is the origin story telling of young Peter, Hook, and Tiger Lily and starring Jackman as Blackbeard. Despite my reservations, Screen Junkies, as they so often do, used the upcoming film as an opportunity to give the original 1953 Disney’s Peter Pan the Honest Trailer treatment. And, fair warning to Disney lovers, your childhood may be in line for a culture shock!
Warner Brothers Pictures has released a new trailer for Pan, the upcoming Peter Pan origins story being released later this year.
The movie tells the story of an orphan boy who finds himself whisked off to Neverland, starting in motion the events that will lead to his eventually becoming the legendary hero himself, the Boy who Wouldn’t Grow Up, Peter Pan.
You can read a full synopsis and check out the new trailer for Pan below.
What do Jodi Benson, Jim Cummings, and Patrick Warburton have in common? They’re some of the greatest individuals to lend their voices to Disney animated films!
