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 September. We end the episode with a Must Read Book and Must Watch suggestion. 

Is the The Goldfinch a good movie? Which Alfred Hitchcock film should you start with? We answer these questions and highlight a creative Science Fiction novella, a fast-paced Historical Fiction novel, and an Epic Fantasy. 

Our Must Watch TV show explores a dystopian America dominated by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Our Must Read book is a fantasy series that is being adapted into a movie.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for movies and books that we should read and watch so we can discuss them in a future episode!
