May I suggest...

While I normally have book suggestions to share, I've been in a reading slump for the past six months. I did enjoy rereading one of my all-time faves To Kill A Mockingbird as a prelude to Go Set A Watchman. Mockingbird is a tough act to follow. I don't recommend reading the two books back to back.

Instead, I've been binge watching TV series on Netflix, Amazon and BRAVO. Let's start with the latest.

Red Oaks. A coming of age story about a college student who spends his summer working as a tennis pro at a country club in New Jersey. If you grew up in the 80's, you'll get a kick out of this.

A Place To Call Home. Described by the Wall Street Journal as an "addictive saga of 1950s Australian family of wealth and privilege caught up in the aftermath of war and conflicting loyalties." If you like Downton Abbey and Australian accents, this series is for you. I think I like it more than Downton, which says a lot. Here's the catch, you have to pay to view on Amazon. It's worth every penny. Go ahead and buy the entire season. Season 2 is available on DVD. I'm tempted to buy it.

{my fave. warning: addictive.}

Chef's Table. Brought to you by Netflix, a six episode series about some of world's most renowned chefs. Binge watch them all in a few days and report back to me on which chef you liked best.

Catastrophe. British TV comedy about an American lad and an Irish girl and their ensuing life after a  drunken hook up. The two main characters are very likable. Available on Amazon Prime.

Odd Mom Out. Brought to you by Bravo. Definitely on the lighter side. A New York mom trying to fit in with the over-the-top 5th Avenue set. Guys can skip this series. Definitely chick material.

That's all. Have I missed any must see shows?
