Since my last blog was so deep, I thought I’d share some really fun entertaining reads and TV shows to keep you balanced throughout the month.
On the TV front, so really fun shows (less deep and intense) are Life in Pieces. A great comedy that is way underrated and surprisingly is on CBS! I love all the characters, witty and silly humor, and it keeps your attention with short stories. Dead to Me on Netflix so well done and is a dark comedy which both makes you feel an element of suspense, humor, and sadness all is one episode. And I like it because not only is the acting so good but they are only 30 minute episodes. If you need a go-to reality show that isn’t the housewives or HGTV, a solid go to favorite for us is Southern Charm. I am partial to anything in Charleston but it is also very entertaining. And a great escape visually all the way around with incredible acting….who doesn’t love Big Little Lies. The book is excellent and surprisingly isn’t even my favorite of Liane Moriarty’s. You can’t go wrong reading one of her books.
In regards to books, I have so many. As an avid reader…with my goal to read 100 books this year (we will see if I make it) I don’t know where to begin. I’ll share some of my recent favorite authors but feel free to ping me if you want more. You can’t go wrong with anything from Reese Witherspoon’s book club. Every once and awhile she has a dud in there but most of the time, they are really good. My short list: any book (literally love all her books) by Liane Moriarty, Kristy Woodson Harvey- her series in the south of a family of sister/mom and female relationships is really good, a few of Sandie Jones’s books (The Other Woman is so creatively done), I really like a lot of Laura Dave’s books, Jodi Picoult writes a good book (Small Great Things was my latest), for the summer Elin Hilderbrand is a great escape to Nantucket, and a few from Bethany Chase. I am reading The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena right now and I am about half way through. Really enjoying this suspense novel right now. Of course there are great biographies, self help books, and leadership books I can recommend too.
But going into the summer, it is fun to grab a good show on a rainy day or read a great book. I love a great beach read! So hopefully there are a few good nuggets in there. I find sometimes I need an escape from reality to help me stay balanced and centered.
