Netflix & Chill

 Normally I do pretty well with a time change, but after one day I am dragging in such a major way. I honestly feel like I’ve had like three cups of sleepy time tea today and all I want to do is pull the classic ‘Netflix and Chill’ routine. 

Lately, I feel like Netflix has really been on their A-game with the movies and the original series they have recently released. I’m still in awe of the Queen’s Gambit; it is one of the few books to movies/TV series that I actually think is better than the actual book. Since this week is probably a little bit of a down week for everyone with the time adjustment I thought I would share a few of my current Netflix favorites!

I Care A Lot

I love Rosamund Pike, she is such a great actor, and a little random, but she has aged so well. Seriously doesn’t look a day older since she played the leading role in gone girl like seven year ago. 


Pike plays a corrupt legal guardian who drains the savings of her elderly wards and sales all of their valuable possessions. She finally meets her match when her newest ward has interesting ties to criminal activities. Has you on the edge of your seat the whole way through.


Ginny & Georgia

This series is a fun watch accompanied by an entertaining amount of drama. The series centers around fifteen year old Ginny and her thirty something year old mother. They play off of each other so well and it just makes for good television. 


Yes Day

If you are a long time reader, then you know that I am such a fan of Jennifer Garner. She just seems so upbeat and friendly and like she could be anyone’s best friend. Her newest movie, Yes Day, is more geared towards a younger audience or a good option for family movie night, but with everything that’s gone on this past year sometimes it’s fun to watch a happy go-lucky escape movie, and this one definitely hits that mark.  


Firefly Lane 

I love, love, love Kristin Hannah books. She is always able to create the most captivating characters and story lines. Ironically, Firefly Lane was the first book I read of hers {back in the early 2000s} and maybe it had something to do with my age I wasn’t that taken with her writing… However, I completely fell in love with her when I read the Nightingale years later {highly recommend if you haven’t read this one yet}. 


Despite not originally being too taken with the book, I actually really liked the Netflix series. I have my fingers crossed for a season 2. In the meantime, I seriously need to give the book another chance. 


The Silence 

Fair warning, this movie is slightly weird/sci-fi-ish, but the storyline is really well developed, and I love Stanley Tucci, he’s such a fantastic actor. Plus, whenever I see him in something I automatically want to watch the Devil Wear Prada {which is completely different from this movie}. If you’re in the mood for suspense, this is definitely a movie for you.


The Great British Baking Show

Confession, I have a love-hate relationship with The Great British Banking Show… and yes, I realize that some people even have watch parties for this particular show, so maybe not the most popular opinion. I either find this show super relax and the hosts charming and entertaining, or I find a couple of the hosts annoying… Right now I am in a love phase with this particular show. Baking, English accents, a couple goofy hosts to balance the serious judges, completely up my alley right now. I’ve watched so many episodes the past few nights a part of me want to fake a British accent and go bake in a tent.
