Emily and Amanda are here to chat all things books, movies, and TV shows. 

You’ll hear our Top 3 books and films/TV shows we enjoyed in November. Next, we spill the beans on a few things that didn’t make our Top 3 lists in our Mentionables segment. 

Our streaming picks for HULU, Amazon Prime, and Netflix will help you from endlessly scrolling trying to find something to watch at home. If you love a good Rom Com, then you definitely want to tune in!  

Our Must Watch movie is an approachable Western everyone should watch and our Must Read Book is a delightful, imaginative fantasy with a gorgeous cover.  

We’d love to hear what you think about what we discussed! You can find us online here:
