Round Up (Podcasts, Books, Movies, TV Shows)

Here we are all on another week of social distancing. I thought this would be a good time to a round up of my favorite podcasts, books, movies, TV shows, etc. All that you don’t need to leave your house to listen to or watch. All the shows and movies are streaming and the books and podcasts you can download right to your phone! I hope this helps alleviate a little boredom!

    Love the list. I’ve thought about rewatching some of my favorite movies and tv shows with my older daughters since we have time at home right now.

    Ok, I’ve never seen any of the movies in the list, and only half of the tv shows (basically Downton Abbey down + Gilmore Girls). This list gives me a great place to start! For books, I am in two different book clubs so those keep me going with books. One is all on facebook and the other we are going to have a virtual book club through video conferencing this month.

    I’d add a few HBO shows like True Detective and Westworld. We have been binge-watching them like crazy.

  7. What great lists! I also enjoyed reading Emily Griffin’s books! Re movies, I loved Marriage Story and Julie and Julia. Schitt’s Creek and Breaking Bad are favourites of mine too. I would add The Crown to your movie list.

    Thanks so much for this long list of ideas. I actually haven’t listened to any of the podcasts you mentioned so I’ll have to check them out. You just reminded me of Gilmore Girls 😍 I haven’t watched that show in years! This is the perfect time to rewatch it. Great post xx

    I wish next week I’ll be able to set aside some time for watching or reading! I work at home all year round, I’m a mom of two, now I’m also a part-time teacher, part-time cook, part-time hometraining coach, part-time entertainer and I still have to deliver my usual work while sharing the ONLY desk we have with my husband who suddenly ALSO works at home. I am beyond overwhelmed!!
    Sorry for spitting all this out here, but isolation is killing me! LOL
