Summer holiday viewing/reading

The Handmaid’s Tale is dystopian romp through every woman’s worst nightmares. Five stars – or should I say – PRAISE BE.

I’m at the point in the year where I am ready to lie down for about a month.

On the upside, this is also the exciting time when I plan what I am going to binge watch/read over the holidays.

Let’s face it: no one has ever described me as ‘athletic’.

As a recently new baby mama, I have watched a lot of TV this year and read about three books, one of which was The Very Cranky Bear.

Here are my recommendations for the lazy fest that lies ahead:

TV

Margaret Atwood adaptations
Alias Grace on Netflix
The Handmaid’s Tale on SBS on Demand

Grim Northern English police drama
Broadchurch series 1 – 3 (various platforms)
Happy Valley on Foxtel
Safe House on Foxtel

Historical romps
Vikings seasons 1 – 5 (various platforms)
Indian Summers on Foxtel

Glamorous HBO
Big Little Lies on Foxtel

Movies

Manchester by the Sea
Viceroy’s House
The Imitation Game
Sully

Books
Museum of Modern Love by Heather Rose
Between a Wolf and a Dog by Georgia Blain
A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman
All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

What would you guys recommend? Keeping in mind that I have the mental capacity of a pumpkin, let’s keep it easy, folks.
