Must List: Week Of September 13th, 2015

Scorch Trials, Scorch Trials, Scorch Trials!!!

If we could make Scorch Trials all 10 items on this list, we probably would. The sequel to last year’s The Maze Runner adapted from the James Dashner book of the same name, Scorch Trials hits theaters Friday, September 18th. Be there, or be lost in the scorch! 


Awkward, Season 5 Episode 3, “Jenna In Wonderland”

All the senior year fun/sadness/awkwardness continues in this week’s episode. Check out a sneak peek of some of the action below.


Tonight the Streets Are Ours, Leila Sales


Tonight the Streets Are Ours is a funny story about the hazards of falling for a person you haven’t met yet. Recklessly loyal Arden Huntley is feeling underappreciated by all those she cares for. She finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called “Tonight the Streets Are Ours,” the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter, and she decides to take a road trip to see him. During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen—Arden discovers that Peter isn’t exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn’t exactly who she thought she was, either.

Lana Del Rey, Honeymoon

The maudlin/gothy/introspective indie singer songwriter returns with some her characteristic dark jams on new album Honeymoon due out September 18th. To tide you over until then so you don’t start self-harming, several singles from Honeymoon are already available for streaming including the track “High By the Beach” featured below.


Dumplin’, by Julie Murphy


In bookstores September 15th, Dumplin’ is the story of Willowdean Dickson, or “Dumplin’” as she is called by her former beauty queen mom. Will is a bigger girl, but has always been at home in her own skin. Until she meets ultimate jock hottie Bo whose attentions unintentionally set her to doubting herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the local beauty pageant, shocking the whole town, and maybe even surprising herself along the way.

Switched at Birth, Season 4 Episode 14, “We Mourn, We Weep, We Love Again”

Things are shaking up over on Switched at Birth as Bay is upset that Regina is considering moving out of the guest house, and Daphne is rattled by a car crash during her new gig helping on an emergency vehicle. Check out a teaser below.


Ash and Bramble, Sarah Prineas


Ash and Bramble is a Cinderalla story…sort of. It’s a bold retelling of a fairy tale world that’s darker than you’ve ever known before, but just as captivating nonetheless. Pin is our Cinderella, except she’s trapped in the Fairy Godmother’s Fortress, and she’s way more interested in the lowly Shoemaker than she is any Prince Charming. And in this version, our heroine doesn’t need ole Prince Charming or anyone else to save her.

Zedd ft. Jon Bellion, “Beautiful Now”

Check out this summer banger from house DJ du jour Zedd, the Russian-German DJ bringing Euro EDM to American parties. “Beautiful Now” is off his second studio album True Colors, out now.


The Marvels, Brian Selznick


In The Marvels, two seemingly unrelated stories–one in words, the other in pictures–come together. The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle’s puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries.

TC ft. Little Grace, “Show Some Love”

British drum and bass king TC has a new single out this Friday. Check out the softer side of drum and bass in “Show Some Love” featuring Little Grace.
