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

You’ll hear our Top 3 books and movies we enjoyed in December. We had a lot of opinions about the new Little Women movie! Next, we spill the beans on a few shows and movies that didn’t make our Top 3 lists in our Mentionables segment. Neither of us have finished watching The Irishman. 

Our streaming picks for HULU, Amazon Prime, and Netflix will help you from endlessly scrolling trying to find something to watch at home. Emily has great dramatic movie picks and Amanda discusses her favorite comedies.

Our Must Watch movie is a classic that shouldn’t be missed and our Must Read Book is about a sarcastic droid that only wants to binge-watch its shows.

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