NonBookish things
Since I’ve been reading nonstop for a while now I thought I would devote the weekends to catching up on TV shows and movies so here’s a few I’ve watched lately:


Liberal Arts starring Josh Radnor and Elizabeth Olsen
[4/5] I really liked this one. It’s about a guy who goes back to his university to honor his professor and falls for a young coed.


Brotherly Love starring Keke Palmer, Corey Hardrict, and Romeo Miller
[4/5] The story of a family who brother has taken the lead in caring for them but does some illegal things to do it.


Stuck in Love starring Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Lily Collins and Nat Wolff
[5/5] I LOVED this one! My brother recommended it and I can’t tell people enough to check it out. The story of a family of writers and a dad who is still in love with his ex-wife after the divorce and how it has affected the family as a whole.


Love [TV series] starring Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust –creator Judd Apatow
[Jury still out on this one] I saw the trailer and thought this look funny but honestly I just watched one episode and I don’t know if I want to see anymore.


Fuller House starring original cast
[4/5] Ok so a lot of people have slammed the series saying it's corny or whatever. Granted it is cheesy but hello it’s supposed to be! Let’s be honest, so was the original. I think we have blinders on when it comes to nostalgia and we forget that the things we love can be cheesy and corny but if you take the show for what it’s for its an ok show.

Upcoming Reads
Lies and Other Acts of Love by Kristy Woodson Harvey
The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight
Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica
The Children by Ann Leary
