Extra time at home means more time to make my way through the pile of books on my bedside table and binge watch a few new (and some old) shows. I’ll be honest: for awhile there, I wasn’t watching anything new. I was actually re-watching old favorites (lots of Friends episodes and zoomed right through Dawson’s Creek for the millionth time) out of a need for comfort. The beginning of quarantine had me feeling anxious and there was something so comforting about cozying up on the couch (preferably in my new sweats) and watching a high school drama along with old movies like Sabrina and Clueless. Anyone else with me here?
With that said, I did finally add some new shows (note: a number of them are pretty dark but they kept me entertained) into the mix. I also managed to make my way through a few books, though I do still have quite a tall stack to go. Below, a quick list of the standout favorites so far.
- Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich
- Reckoning (A thriller that you probably shouldn’t watch if you’re home alone.)
- Little Fires Everywhere
- Normal People
- The Stranger
