Emily and Amanda want to help you spend your entertainment time wisely. Episode 7 is chock full of great books, TV, and film suggestions! 

First we share our Top 3 books and films from the month of October. In our Mentionables segment we dish on why a few things didn’t make our top 3 lists. *cough* HULU’s Four Weddings and a Funeral isn’t great. 

We’ve added a new segment to the show! Can’t make it to a movie theater? Then you’ll want to tune in to our top picks from the streaming apps HULU, Amazon Prime, and Netflix. 

At the end of the episode both our Must Read Book and a Must Watch suggestions share an alien theme. 

We’d love to hear what you think about what we discussed! If you have a suggestion you would like for us to read or watch you can share them with us online. You can comment below or find us online.
