We want to help you spend your entertainment time wisely. In this episode Amanda shares her Top 3 books (She Reads) and Emily shares her Top 3 movies (She Watches) from the month of August. We end the episode with a Must Read Book and Must Watch suggestion.
We enjoy a pair of fall themed beers while we talk about the popular memoirs Educated and Save Me the Plums. We also have a good YA Fantasy recommendation. You’ll hear about some under-the-radar quirky films like The Lobster, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and The Peanut Butter Falcon.
Our Must Read book is a romantic comedy and our Must Watch Movie is an endearing documentary stirring up nostalgia from childhood.
Time-stamped show notes are below with references to every book and film we mentioned in this episode.
Thank you for listening!
