Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
This book is full of twists and turns that kept me intrigued through the entire thing. The story follows two families that could not be more different. When their worlds collide in a suburb of Cleveland, OH, they become intertwined and their pasts come to light. This book is an easy read and can be finished in a few days. I would highly recommend as a vacation read!
Rise on NBC has been one of my favorite shows this season. If you like dramas and musical theater, then this show is definitely for you! It can be a little cheesy at times but I binged the first 4 episodes in one day because I liked it so much. The plot focuses on a high school drama department, teachers and students, who are working on the production Spring Awakening. There are many different subplots that make it relatable to almost anyone. This show probably isn’t winning any awards, but it’s definitely a feel good drama.
Missing and Murdered: Finding Cleo
If you don’t like true crime, you will probably hate every podcast I post about. The theme of my picks this week is family, and more specifically siblings. This podcast shares the story of a Canadian siblings that were separated from their mother and each other as children. They are all reunited as adults, but one of the sisters died mysteriously at a young age and the family desperately searches for answers. This is a super sad story of the mistreatment of Canadian indigenous people and how they have been affected by that many years later.
Let me know if you decide to check any of these out! I really enjoyed all three and think you will too! Until next time…
