Have you watched Brené Brown’s new Netflix special? (You can see the trailer here.) I’ve heard it’s amazing but I haven’t seen it yet because I plan to sit down with a pen and paper and take notes while I watch. That’s how much wisdom Brené delivers.
Educated by Tara Westover is one of the hottest books out there. It’s been on the New York Times Best Sellers List for 62 weeks; it’s currently #2.
I read Educated earlier this year (my mini-review is here) and it has stayed with me in a way that few books have, so when I saw that Oprah had interviewed the author for her Super Soul Sunday series I hit ‘play’ right away. (I listened to the interview on the Super Soul Conversations podcast; you can also watch it on the website.)
Tara Westover is a great interview, and we know what a master Oprah is at guiding the conversation. If you’ve read the book, or think you might like to, I highly recommend it.
Hooray! Season 2 of Big Little Lies is coming to HBO on June 9. You can watch the trailer here.
Big Little Lies is my favorite of Liane Moriarty’s books (my mini-review is here) and the first season of the series, which stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, and Zoë Kravitz, did not disappoint. For Season 2 they’re joined by Meryl Streep, so I can only imagine it will be great.
A smaller book group I’m a part of (just four women) is getting ready to read this collection of short stories by Tom Hanks. I’m intrigued!
I don’t listen to audiobooks since my listening time is eaten up by podcasts, but it seems like audio would be a great way to “read” this one since Tom Hanks is the narrator.
What are you watching and reading these days?
