What to Read, Watch and Listen To This Month

July 2016

July 6th, 2016

You guys might have noticed that we took a hiatus from our monthly On My Nightstand series because, well, I took a bit of a hiatus from books in general! After Henry was born, life got really busy and our routine was shaken up, and in such times I tend to fill any little breaks in my schedule with quicker reads that don’t require much brain energy — magazines, blogs, and the like. But, I’m officially BACK to books! And I have so many I’ve been dying to share with you guys, but since I’ve also been getting tons of requests to share my current podcast and television addictions, I decided to broaden the scope. So, today kicks off our new monthly (or so) series where I’ll share what I’m reading, watching, and listening to — and loving — right now. Click through for July’s picks, and please please please leave a comment letting me know your current faves in each category!

We wanna know...

What books, television shows, and podcasts are you loving this month?

16 Comments under :: July 2016
  1. This is a great round-up! I’m always looking for new books to read. I just finished The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins, and I highly recommend it. I’ll have to check out some of the podcasts you suggested!

  2. Jennifer says:

    So thrilled to see a new version of this feature back. I’ve always loved getting ideas from what you’re reading in the past.

  3. Sue says:

    Reading The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild and CANNOT put it down.

  4. I too am OBSESSED with the Night Manager. I wish there were more episodes. Have you watched Bloodline yet?

  5. Jennifer says:

    Love the new and broader range covered in this series! I’ve been listening to the Here’s the Thing podcast by Alec Baldwin and enjoyed the stories and backgrounds of his famous guests – Billy Joel, Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Shumer to name a few. I’m also curious to try an audio book to make my commute to work seemingly quicker and more productive. I’ve read great reviews on Cameron Diaz’s The Longevity Book where she also does the narration.

  6. Maxime says:

    I really want to read ‘The Girl on the Train’, ‘A Tale for the Time Being’, ‘Miss Peregrine’s for Peculiar Children’ and ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. Movie wise, I got to see ‘Finding Dory’ last week and totally recommend it to everyone!

  7. Lisa says:

    Listening to a lot of Taylor Swift of late – hey, it’s summer! But I’ve balanced the bubble gum pop with reruns of Power – talk about the angel and the devil on each shoulder.

  8. Julie says:

    Love thisi! Interesting book recommendations! I will for sure read the 32 Yolks!! My summer reading so far included: The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy Reichert; The first time novel by Julia Claiborne Johnson titled, Be Frank with Me was excellent; but my number one this summer is Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichel, A beautifully written and fascinating memoir not something to be missed if your food lover!

    • Julie, these are such amazing recos! Can’t wait to check them all out… I love Ruth Reichel, and have been wanting to read Tender at the Bone for awhile. This is just the push I needed!

  9. Linda O'Neill says:

    One of my favorite authors is Alice Hoffman. Each of her books is totally different from the last. They’re insightful and thought provoking. I’ve read about six of hers and all were good although Marriage of Opposites was my least favorite. Another real sleeper but really terrific is 2:00 a.m. at the Cat’s Pajamas. Great, great story. Thanks everyone for sharing. Always love to hear about a good book.

    • Thanks Linda, I just looked up Alice Hoffman’s books and now I’m dying to try one out. Which would you recommend reading first?

      • Linda O'Neill says:

        I just finished Museum Of Extraordinary Things. She combined two significant historical events from 1911 into the story which made it even more interesting. I hope you like it as much as I did.
