Watch Read Listen: December

We’re ending the year on a high note with these picks.


I watched this movie for the first time three years ago and am now making up for lost time. (Amber)

Pretty Freekin Scary (Disney+)
A girl accidentally gets sent to the Underworld and now has to do tasks for the Grim Reaper (who’s a woman!). But it’s also a comedy and has lots of lovely family and friends moments. (Hazel)
Check out our Disney+ Roku to watch.


Amazing Ace, Awesome Aro by Victoria Barron
A very basic overview of a-spec identities with very fun graphics. I already knew everything in it, but it was still fun to look at. (Hazel)

Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll
Having grown up in the same city as Ted Bundy, I’ll always read anything based on him, even historical fiction. This was an engrossing read, and I was impressed by the author’s understanding of Washington state. (Ash)

The Chalice of the Gods by Rick Riordan
After a few spinoff series, Rick Riordan finally returns to writing Percy Jackson from Percy’s POV. Great if you loved the original Percy Jackson and the Olympians. (Casey)

Midnight is the Darkest Hour by Ashley Winstead
This was an incredibly atmospheric, southern gothic mystery, and it did not disappoint. (Ash)

Mom Rage: The Everyday Crisis of Modern Motherhood by Minna Dubin
This book made me feel SO SEEN. (Dana)

Out-island Doctor by Evans W. Cottman
First published in 1963, this biography of a teacher who chucks that life to be a medical provider to residents of the far-flung Bahama islands. The trials and tribulations of boats, Caribbean weather and customs are enlightening, humorous and challenging. (Deb)

KooKooLand by Gloria Norris
A memoir written from the perspective of the author as a child, growing up in Manchester, NH under her charismatic, but abusive father in the 1960s/70s. She writes in her voice as a child which I did not like at first, but after a few dozen pages, it was essential to the book. (Todd)

Things in the Basement by Ben Hatke
Ben goes to the basement to get his little sister’s sock and discovers a whole lot more. Creepy and lovely at the same time, from the creator of the Mighty Jack series. (Jen)

This Is Christmas, Song by Song: The Stories Behind 100 Hits by Annie Zaleski
A Christmas Behind The Music starring the songs. (Amber)

A Winter in New York by Josie Silver
I don’t read many romance novels so perhaps I am not the best arbiter, but this cute read checks all the boxes: meet cute, widower who is scared to open up to love again, NYC scenes straight out of a movie set, etc. Romance tropes aside, the plot is original and kept me rooting for a happy ending. (Amber)


Golden by Jung Kook
Jung Kook is the last member of BTS to drop his own solo project and it’s golden. (Casey)

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, read by Tim Robbins
I always find a “classic” I missed in school weirder than I expected when I read them as an adult. This was no different. It’s much more stream-of-consciousness, metaphorical and symbolic than I’d have guessed. But I got the point, found it interesting. Best analogy is it’s like the 1953 version of Wall-e. (Deb)

Living in the Fallout by Far From Finished
They were a Boston punk band who haven’t played together in years, but are re-uniting for a few shows at Faces in Malden to celebrate the life of their former bandmate, Paul Christian, who recently passed away. (Todd)

Making It So by Patrick Stewart, read by the author
Patrick Stewart is a much more interesting man than I thought! (Hazel)

The Woman in Me by Britney Spears, read by Michelle Williams
Michelle Williams does an incredible job narrating Britney’s new memoir. This slim volume seems like the CliffsNotes of her life story, but what Britney does share is incredibly sad. I hope she has found a sense of peace and can live the life SHE wants now. (Amber)

Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane, read by Robin Miles
I’m a nerd for local history (spoiler alert!), and have been wanting to read Lehane’s new novel, which centers on the Boston Public Schools’ efforts to desegregate by forcing busing between Southie and Roxbury. I usually have a hard time with audiobooks for various reasons, but figured I’d give this one a try. I think I made it 2 chapters in before giving up…the reader’s performance was a bit grating and her “Southie accent” tended to sound a bit more New Yorkish. I switched to ebook format on this one. (Dana)

Watch Read Listen: November


The Fall of the House of Usher (Netflix)
If Succession was made by Edgar Allen Poe. The Usher family is a power clan who have eluded justice in all its forms. That is about to change, however, as someone-or something-begins kill off each member of the family in exceedingly brutal fashion. A fascinating tribute to Poe’s works, but be warned, it is quite gory at times. (Greg)
Mike Flanagan does not disappoint with this modern retelling of Edgar Allen Poe classics. (Ash)

Game Changer (, YouTube)
An awesome game show that asks the question: what if a game show had different rules every time? The first few episodes are free on Youtube, and then the rest are on the Dropout streaming service which I also highly recommend! (Renee)

Party Girl (Kanopy)
Super fun 90s film starring Parker Posey, whose librarian godmother bails her out of jail. Lots of great scenes in the godmother’s old-timey library, complete with card catalogs, stamp machines, and imposing posters of Melvil Dewey. The fashions and dance music are also awesome! (Janet)

V/H/S/85 (Shudder)
The newest installment of the V/H/S found footage shorts series starts is a great way to get some bite sized scares in during the Halloween season. (Liz)
Check out our Shudder Roku to watch.

Yellowstone (Peacock, Paramount+)
Amber sold it to me as “The Sopranos set in Montana”, and boy was she right! Glad I jumped on the bandwagon (finally) because this show is super well done. (Elle)


All-Of-A-Kind Family by Sydney Taylor
All-of-a-Kind Family is a children’s book about a family of five American Jewish girls growing up on the Lower East Side of New York City in 1912. First published in 1951, this story of a family of new immigrants feels relevant even today. The girls’ relationship with the local librarian is particularly endearing. (Janet)

Black Sheep by Rachel Harrison
Fans of Netflix’s Sabrina will enjoy this atmospheric gothic tale. (Ash)

The Blood Years by Elena K. Arnold
I’m excited to dive into this historical fiction inspired by the stories the author’s grandmother shared of growing up in war-torn Romania. (Jen)

Camp Damascus by Chuck Tingle
Scary and engrossing Halloween read about queer resistance to a cult. Almost to the end and can’t put it down! (Renee)

Deep in Providence by Riss M. Neilson
There’s Filipino magic, and also wonderful family and friendship connections. Plus it takes place in New England! (Hazel)

Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
Beautifully written, but heavy content. (Kelly)

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann
I went into this knowing absolutely nothing of the story and finished completely dazed. It is so intense, with a conspiracy that runs generations deep, I don’t know how Scorsese is going to cram it all into a 3-hour movie. (Elle)

The September House by Carissa Orlando
Margaret and Hal have bought thier dream house after years of renting. Problem is, it’s haunted. Like, the walls ooze blood type of haunted. Most folks would run towards the hills, but Margaret isn’t most people, and is determined to make this house her home. Even if the walls bleed a little…and dead children roam the halls…and her husband goes missing. Funny, frightening, and heart wrenching. (Greg)

Soup of the Day: 150 Delicious and Comforting Recipes from our Favorite Restaurants by Ellen Brown
It’s soup season! I can’t wait to expand my soup resume with some of the recipes in this book. (Liz)


99% Invisible: Big Dig episode (podcast)
This episode goes back in time to the 1960s roots of the most expensive highway project in American history. So interesting, especially the interviews with the Big Dig’s chief architect: a self-professed hater of highways. (Janet)

Pageboy by Elliot Page
Very interesting to hear about Elliot Page’s journey in his own voice and also very intense! (Hazel)

Pod Meets World (iHeart)
Have early ’90s nostalgia? Revisit episodes of Boy Meets World with members of the cast. (Ash)

Rough Sleepers: Dr. Jim O’Connell’s Urgent Mission to Bring Healing to Homeless People by Tracey Kidder, narrated by the author
A really well-written and insightful perspective into the many hurdles unsheltered folks face. (Deb)

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, narrated by Jorgeana Marie, Will Damron, Cassandra Morris, Michael Crouch
Captivating story telling! One character was so annoying that I physically rolled my eyes every time it was their turn to tell the story. That must be good writing. The culmination of the story centers around real events, making it that much more dramatic. I would tweak 2 tiny things about the final scenes, but that’s totally nit-picky! (Deb)

We Are All Completely Besides Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler, narrated by Orlagh Cassidy
Interesting story of a girl who was raised alongside a chimpanzee as her “twin”. While the writing is a bit convoluted, the story is mostly fun and sometimes really messed up. (Deb)

Watch Read Listen: October


Our Flag Means Death, season 2 (Max)
Our favorite pirates are back this month! (Ash)

Interview with the Vampire (AMC+/Amazon Prime/Max)
This series just got released onto new platforms and it is INCREDIBLE. The acting is amazing and I am hooked, and the second season comes out soon! (Renee)
This series is based on The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice (Interview with the Vampire, book 1) .

Metal Lords (Netflix)
A fun & endearing coming of age story with Heavy Metal! (Todd)


The City of Incurable Women by Maud Casey
This caught my eye in a colleague’s display! Casey takes photographs and clinical notes from Paris’s Salpetriere hospital – mostly about women who were diagnosed with various types of “hysteria” – and brings the women to life with invented backstories, feelings, and dreams. It read a bit too “literary fiction” for me at times, but was otherwise fascinating. (Dana)

Damned If You Do by Alex Brown
It’s like Buffy but better! It features Filipino monsters, a haunted town, theatre kids, and queer characters. Amazing! (Hazel)

The Darkness Outside Us by Eliot Schrefer
All I have to say is: what a plot twist! (Casey)

Everything The Darkness Eats by Eric LaRocca
Set in a peaceful New England town, bizarre disappearances start to take place and secrets start to come out. What lies beneath the idyllic image of the town ends up being truly terrifying. This is one spooky read that I have been anxiously awaiting to read this fall! (Elle)

A Haunting on the Hill by Elizabeth Hand
We return to the world of Shirley Jackson’s Haunting of Hill House with this story, and I’m excited to read it this month. (Ash)

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
An amazing and eye opening story of a woman given a second chance after attempting to take her own life. She enters the midnight library, a sort of purgatory where each book holds a different possibility of a life that may be. Which will she choose? It’s hopeful, tragic and sweet. It will leave you turning the pages and wondering how we too can change the trajectory of our own lives. (Kerry)

My Body by Emily Ratajkowski
I never expected to relate to Emily Ratajkowski, but this book was an in-depth exploration into the struggles women face, how ‘seen’ we feel by the world, and what value we have – all based on our appearance. Reading this shortly after seeing Barbie hurt my soul, but in an inspirational way. (Elle)

The Princess and the Grilled Cheese Sandwich by Deya Muniz
Super cute LGBTQ romance. Cheese-themed mistaken identity, fashion shows, and more! (Renee)


Slayers: A Buffyverse Story (Audible)
This audio drama features many of the original cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and takes place 10 years aft the final episode of the television show. I can’t wait to see what is in store! (Ash)

Stiff by Mary Roach, read by Shelly Frasier
Mary Roach is always good for a very down-to-earth, some might say graphic or irreverent, book. From topics like traveling to Mars to Animals in National Parks to this one about the process and effects of death on the human body, she tells it like it is. (Deb)

Talking As Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and everything in between), by Lauren Graham, read by the author
I’m a diehard Gilmore Girls fan (currently rewatching the series for the third time), so it’s surprising that it took me this long to learn about Lauren Graham’s books. The audiobook is narrated by Graham, so it’s almost like she is in the car with me, an old friend telling me funny stories to make the commute less boring. I particularly like the parts when she talks about Gilmore Girls and filming A Year in the Life. If you like Lauren Graham or Gilmore Gilmores, this nostalgic memoir is for you. (Tessa)

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson, read by Michael Kramer
The second book in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series. Our heroes must navigate the realities of what happens after the overthrow of a tyrannical emperor as they try to reestablish order and stability to the land. An exciting follow-up to the first novel, diving deeper into the nuances of the world that Sanderson has created. Full of action, political intrigue, magic, and suspense. The narration by Michael Kramer is clear, and keeps you hooked as the tale unfolds. (Alanna)

Wow In the World by Guy Raz and Mindy Thomas
A first-grade patron sold me on this great podcast that covers science, technology and news. Check it out! (Jen)

Watch Read Listen: September


The Bear (Hulu)
I’m a little late with this review, but just finished the second season of The Bear which aired on Hulu in June. While it’s listed as a comedy, I would say it leans heavily on drama! The series follows an award winning chef, who returns to his hometown to take over a family restaurant. The acting is excellent, the emotion is palpable, and it leaves you feeling all the anxiety, stress, and excitement that comes with family relationships, and the restaurant business. I highly recommend with the caveat that if you are averse to swearing, this may not be the show for you! (Catherine)
Check out our Hulu Roku to watch.

Before We Die, season one
I watch all the (dark) British detective shows; this one is exceptional. We know going in that the plot involves a murder, and even though I knew the outcome I was still on the edge of my seat through the first episode waiting to see what would happen. (Amber)

Reptile (Netflix)
Benicio Del Toro – that is all you need to know. (Elle)


All Adults Here by Emma Straub
Eh…cute story of a family and what all is happening with its members in light of the death of a lady in a small town where everyone knows each other. (Deb)

Blind Descent by Nevada Barr
Do you like National Parks? What about tight dark spaces? In book six of the Anna Pigeon mystery series, my favorite National Park Service ranger encounters a murderer 800 feet below ground in Lechuguilla Cave at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. It just so happened that I read this book the month before my first caving experience, and I greatly enjoyed learning about caving terminology, tools, and techniques that cavers use. However, Anna’s fear of caving began to rub off me! As always, author Nevada Barr writes another exciting mystery. For additional fun, might I suggest pairing this book with a documentary about caves, such as Journey into Amazing Caves or Mysterious Life of Caves. (Tessa)

Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake
i love love love Ashley Herring Blake, but i also dislike romcoms, and i think my dislike of romcomcs was too powerful for me to like this very much. There were hints of how great she can write characters, but most of it feel flat. (Ash)

I Feed Her To The Beast And The Beast Is Me by Jamison Shea
Absolutely wild paranormal horror. A Black, queer ballerina makes a deal with an ancient demon blood river for power and reputation. (Renee)

Joe vs. Elan School (web comic)
A terrifying account of a Teen who was sent/kidnapped to a Elan School, a school for troubled teens in Maine. Joe’s story is one of physical & mental abuse, and how he attempts to get though the experience and live his life. (Todd)

Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover
Eh. No 17yo guy is as emotionally aware as Holder. Too many secrets for too much of the book. I think publishers went back and re-released her works from before It Ends with Us and It Starts with Us and the earlier works just aren’t as good. Ok, though. (Deb)

One of Us Is Back by Karen McManus
I enjoyed the previous two books in this trilogy, and was initially so disappointed with this, the newly released third book. Had I read the previous two more recently it might have been better, but there were so many characters and allusions to the other books that I felt a bit lost in the weeds. It improved, though! I ended up liking this one almost as much as the others. (Dana)

Simon Sort of Says by Erin Bow
Funny, sad, and surprising–I was rooting for middle-schooler Simon and his whole town! (Jen)

Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister
Looking for a long weekend read, I picked this up on a whim and ended up hooked! It’s a murder mystery, with some great twists and a very unique plot line. The main character wakes up each morning and it is the previous day, creating a plot that goes back in time in order to solve a crime in her current time. While initially I thought this would be confusing, the author does a great job setting it up, and it was really fun to read! (Catherine)


Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver, read by Charlie Thurston
So engaging from Page 1!! Dickens’s David Copperfield meets 1990’s Appalachia. Reading Dickens isn’t required, but if you have, the parallels are plentiful. Could not wait to get back in the car & keep listening! I don’t have many 5-star reviews in 2023, so I’m grateful for this one! (Deb)

Layover by V
V’s (BTS) solo debut album is here! Contains more jazz and R&B than you’re probably expecting. (Casey)

Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
Excitedly awaiting season three – book four of the Bridgerton series is (in my opinion) the best one! Absolutely love the story of Penelope and Colin!! Although, sadly, I don’t think the series will hold true to the book based on the season synopsis. Hopefully we’ll see come December! (Elle)

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin, read by Jennifer Kim and Julian Cihi
Not knowing anything about gaming, I wasn’t sure if this would resonate with me, but it was a really nice story. The characters were flawed but likeable and I came to care about what would happen next. (Deb)

August 2023

Summer isn’t over yet! Here’s what we’ve enjoyed in the last of the long, summer days.


All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers
A decent mystery/thriller with twists and turns in mostly all the right places. I would have given it a solid 4 out of 5 stars, but then the ending made me feel physically ill. I kind of wish I could scrub this one from my brain. (Dana)

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
This book is about the love story between Celestial and Roy and the sudden twist of fate that changes their lives in an instant. Much of this story is told through the letters they write to each other. Beautifully written and incredibly sad. (Seana)

Blindsight by Peter Watts
A crew of astronauts encounter an alien lifeform so different from humanity that it raises disturbing implications about what it means to be alive. A cosmic horror story that is refreshingly free of H.P. Lovecraft’s influence, it ‘s a good read for anyone who likes their sci-fi to be scary. (Greg)

Camp Damascus by Chuck Tingle
My first 5-star read of the year. A young woman has grown up in a town whose economy revolves around a conversion therapy camp. It’s creepy and funny, and perfectly encapsulates the horror that is the reality of conversion therapy. (Ash)

Can We Please Give the Police Department to the Grandmothers by Junauda Petrus, illustrated by Kristen Uroda
I think the title sums it up – a picture books for children and adults to read and talk about. I loved the review by School Library Journal: “A reverie of a book, offering criticism delivered with honey about our current state of affairs. It’s not at all as far-fetched as it sounds”. (Molly)

The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling: A Hardcore, High-flying, No-Holds-Barred History of the One True Sport by Aubrey Sitterson and Chris Moreno
I wasn’t allowed to watch wrestling as a child, but I married someone who is interested in it. This easy to read nonfiction graphic novel has been enlightening on the art of professional wrestling- it’s part theater, part acrobatics, part fighting and 100% fascinating. (Liz)

The Five-Star Weekend by Elin Hilderbrand
This is one of her best yet – thoughtful storyline and more in-depth look at friendships through the year. (Kelly)

Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
As Goodreads puts it, “Enter the brutal and elite world of a war college for dragon riders”. This book will have you on the edge of your seat from chapter 1, and has everything from nail biting action to much needed romance. (Karina)

From the Desk of Zoe Washington by Janae Marks
This is middle grade fiction. I started reading the first chapter aloud with one of our middle school friends who had to read it this summer for school. I was instantly hooked! (And so was my middle school friend.) (Seana)

Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay (two reviews)
I found this because it’s the Teen book club pick. It was amazing and made me feel all the feelings. I’m so glad there’s more Filipino American stories out there! (Hazel)

This is Waltham High School’s summer reading selection, but it’s a story that can engage, entertain, and enlighten all ages. It’s brutally honest about the complicated stuff in life, like familial relationships and expectations, trauma and substance use disorders, diaspora, and the amorphous nature of our identity and our perception of the world as we strive to become our best selves. There are also sparks of love, friendship, and humor throughout! All of this AND insights into the ongoing socio-political saga of the Philippines. Patron Saints gives us a gripping insider look at Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte’s “War on Drugs” and how it has dramatically deteriorated human rights for many Filipino citizens today. (Lauren)

The Postcard by Anne Berest, translated by Tina Kover
The size of this book was pretty daunting, but having read it I’m amazed Berest was able to fit this story into only 464 pages. It’s the tale of her family, focusing on the bit starting in Russia in 1919 and ending in France around 1945. The book bounces between that history and present day, when Anne and her mother are investigating who sent a mysterious postcard listing the names of their family who had been killed during the Holocaust. It was hard to read in places, but is an amazing story of survival. (Dana)

Woman of Light by Kali Fajardo-Anstine
Fajardo-Anstine seamlessly weaves through generations and shows us that the past never dies – it just transforms. We are the product of our ancestors, and whether or not their stories were recorded on paper they live on in us – and if we are present enough to listen they will guide us. (Molly)


Babylon Berlin (Netflix)
Babylon Berlin is a gorgeous and graceful neo-noir television series set in Berlin during the Golden Twenties. It’s dark and twisted, but beautiful to look at. The mysterious plot trails a police commissioner who wrestles with shell-shock from his service in WWI and who is committed to investigating and dismantling Berlin’s biggest pornography ring. The story unwinds slowly, and in a delightfully confusing and dramatic way. (Lauren)

Heartstopper (Netflix, based on the graphic novel by Alice Oseman)
Great follow up to season 1 and Ace by Angela Chen makes an appearance! (Hazel)

Lost in Paris (Kanopy)
Fiona is a Canadian librarian who travels to France to visit her 88-year-old aunt who, it turns out, is missing. Hilarity and a whole lot of physical comedy ensue. (Janet)

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Prime Video, based on the book by Jenny Han )
I dont know how many times I said out loud (while watching it!) THIS IS SOO BAD – yet I could not stop watching it… (Elle)

Till tells the story of the murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till and the activism of his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley. Incredibly well done and still incredibly relevant. Why this movie and its lead actress weren’t nominated for Oscars is a mystery. It’s really that good. (Janet)

True Detective (Max)
Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, the Louisiana bayou and occult murders? Sign me up! (Liz)
Check out our Max Roku to watch.

What We Do in the Shadows (Hulu)
A funny mockumentary about four vampires living on Staten Island and the poor human servant that has to deal with their crazy ideas. You’ll definitely like it if you like anything by Taika Waititi, and shows filmed like The Office. (Karina)
Check out our Hulu Roku to watch.

You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah (Netflix)
Adam Sandler plays a minor role in this film that stars his real-life daughters and wife. I love finding movies that my daughters and I equally enjoy and this is definitely one. Funny, modern, and sweet, it’s a delight. (Amber)


American Heartbreak by Zack Bryan
Given that Zack Bryan is slated to play Gillette next summer (with Jason Isbell opening), I am late to the Zach Bryan party. Better late than never, I am obsessed. (Amber)

Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner, narrated by the author
This had been on my TBR for quite some time after two years of consistent public praise. I have to say I was rather disappointed in it, not for Michelle’s storytelling (which was very well done), but for the story itself. (Elle)

Finding Me by Viola Davis, narrated by the author
Viola Davis is 1000% a storyteller! Less than ten minutes in I was crying. It’s heartbreaking, uplifting, relatable, hilarious, human. I am so glad I listened to the audiobook version to actually hear her tell her own story. Fun Fact: she won a Grammy for this audiobook narration! Yes – it’s that good. (Elle)

One Life by Megan Rapinoe, narrated by the author
For World Cup season I decided to read more about the people on the US National Team. I love the way Megan Rapinoe tells her story and uses her platform as an athlete for social justice. (Hazel)

The Retrievals (podcast)
This is not specifically a true crime podcast, but the experiences of hundreds of women at a Yale fertility clinic is nothing short of criminal. If binge listening is a thing, then that’s what I did. (Janet)

July 2023

The heat is on with our summertime choices.


Black Rain by Masuji Ibuse; translated by John Bester
I’ve been meaning to read Masuji Ibuse’s sobering and acclaimed novel on the aftermath of the bombing of Hiroshima for years. With the film Oppenheimer coming out in a few days, I thought this would be a good time to start it as a reminder that the surviving people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had to live with the brutal consequences of Oppenheimer’s creation. (Liz)

The Five: The Untold Lives of the Women Killed by Jack the Ripper by Hallie Rubenhold
The story of Jack the Ripper has long held a macabre fascination for me, but this book blew me away. Rubenhold did an unbelievable amount of research to tell the stories of the women who are believed to be the Ripper’s victims. She also did an amazing job humanizing the women, and making me rethink the way the story has fascinated me. I highly recommend this book. (Dana)

Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas
Eh… this was pretty one-note for 95% of the book. Everything happened in the last 20 pages. (Deb)

Lucky Red by Claudia Cravens
Looking for a sapphic western? You won’t be disappointed with this story of an orphan making her own way in the wild west. (Ash)

Moby Dyke: An Obsessive Quest To Track Down the Last Remaining Lesbian Bars in America by Krista Burton
Burton spent a year travelling to the last remaining 20 lesbian bars across across the country to document what’s left. I especially enjoyed reading about her trip to my hometown bar. (Ash)

Night Will Find You by Julia Heaberlin
A young woman returns home to help find a missing girl. With gorgeous words, Heaberlin writes a mystery/thriller that will keep you guessing until the end. (Ash)

Not On Any Map: One Virgin Island, Two Catastrophic Hurricanes, and the True Meaning of Paradise by Margie Smith Holt
So amazing to read an amazing adventure about a place, in the place, I love & visit often. (Deb)

Quietly Hostile by Samantha Irby
I’ve realized that I enjoy essay collections like this, but in moderation. While I loved most of Irby’s essays in this book, I did have to skip a few due to plain old lack of interest. But the best ones made me laugh out loud, which I appreciated. (Dana)

Secret Life: An Adaptation of a Story by Jeff VanderMeer by Theo Ellsworth
Surreal, creepy story paired with mesmerizing, terror-inducing art. Reminiscent of the themes present in the TV show Severance but with an abstract atmosphere that is profoundly unsettling. (Lauren)


A League of Their Own (Amazon Prime)
An endearing adaptation of the modern-classic film A League of Their Own, this series dives into beautiful queer-love themes and war-time foreboding that only briefly shimmers on the surface of the original. The extended one-hour series format gives the audience more time to soak in the period costumes and the tension of the times, with a heavy dose of bad CGI baseball montages! There’s the familiar fun and cartoonish ensemble cast, just as with the original, but in many ways, it’s a more profound and gratifying watch. (Lauren)

Barbie (currently in theaters)
An excellent film about men, the patriarchy, and what it’s like to be a woman on this planet. (Ash)

George and Tammy (Showtime)
Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon are absolutely incredible as Tammy Wynette and George Jones in this, ultimately, very sad story. (Amber)

George Michael: Freedom (streaming on Paramount+)
This is a bittersweet look at the later period of the singer’s career. I’m not sure I realized at the time how much George Michael fought for an artist’s right to do what they wanted to do, rather than what the record company wanted. Worth watching if for nothing else but the story behind the best music video ever made, Freedom! ’90. (Amber)

The next installment in the Yellowstone origin stories, this series has an extraordinary amount of gratuitous violence. Harrison Ford is woefully miscast as a cowboy; Helen Mirren shines. (Amber)

Wham! (Netflix)
Utterly fun pop candy. (Amber)


Beyond the Story: 10 Year Record of BTS by BTS
Originally announced by the publisher with the title and author hidden and an huge print run planned, my interest was peaked. When the author was announced as the popular K-pop band BTS, I wanted to see what it was all about. Listening to the audiobook has been a glimpse into the competitive K-pop industry and serves as liner notes to the 10 year career of BTS. Would recommend to curious pop culture fans with one warning: it can be a little tricky to follow the audio narrative, since there are extended quotes from interviews and un-introduced song lyrics interspersed throughout. (Kate)

The Collected Regrets of Clover by Mikki Bramer; narrated by Jennifer Pickens
In this novel you’ll meet Clover, who is a death doula in New York City, dedicating her life to ushering people peacefully through their end-of-life process. Interesting and well-written. Good characters. Chuckled a few times, shed a tear or 2. Insightful. (Deb)

Come On Feel the Illinoise by Sufjan Stevens
This album came out 15 years ago, but I’ve been spending a lot of time in my bluetooth-less car lately and wanted to listen to something mellow and familiar from my college days. This album is a 2000s indie classic. (Liz)

The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel; narrated by Madeleine Maby
Where the Crawdads Sing meets The Nightingale. Seem like an odd description? Read it for yourself and see if I’m correct! (Deb)

The Old Woman With the Knife by Gu Byeong-mo; translated into English by Chi-Young Kim; narrated by Nancy Wu
Hornclaw is a “disease control specialist” who fears she may be aging out of her profession. This is a quirky story with violent scenes that are told so matter-of-factly that the gore almost seems comical. (Amber)

Someone Else’s Shoes by Jojo Moyes; narrated by Daisy Ridley
Wasn’t sure where this story was headed… one of the two main characters was deeply unlikable to start. In the end… a fun adventure with some laugh-out-loud moments. (Deb)

The Tea Girl of Hummingbird by Lisa See; narrated by Ruthie Ann Miles
Lisa See’s novels always immerse the reader in a new culture. This one is historical fiction surrounding hill tribe people of China and their traditions, tea farming and family bonds. Very enjoyable. (Deb)

June 2023

Our summer is in full swing!


All The Dead Lie Down by Kyrie McCauley
YA sapphic gothic horror. Creepy house, atmospheric setting on the Maine coast, excellent twists you won’t see coming. (Ash)

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I know this book is like 10 years old, but I never read got around to it. And shame on me because it was FABULOUS (which everyone already knew)! (Elle)

Light From Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki
Heartwarming queer sci-fi in the vein of Good Omens! (Renee)

Lone Women by Victor LaValle
A Black woman named Adelaide is fleeing to Montana in 1915, where she can claim a plot of land for free as long as she agrees to cultivate it. All she brings with her is her trunk, and we immediately understand that the contents of the trunk are connected to the mysterious death of her parents, and that it must not be opened by anyone else under any circumstances. This novel was really atmospheric with some scary moments in the second half. I really enjoyed it! (Cathy)

Monsters: A Fan’s Dilemma by Claire Dederer
An honest and wise collection of essays on how we engage with the work of public figures who have done harmful things, and whether we should feel guilty for continuing to love their art. I felt both called out and validated reading this. Highly recommend to those interested in this topic. (Cathy)

The Night Always Comes by Willy Vlautin
Set over the course of two days in Portland, this fast-paced novel kept me on the edge of my seat. I have added all of Vlautin’s previous novels to my TBR pile. (Amber)

Unprotected: A Memoir by Billy Porter
Billy Porter’s memoir is an engaging read, expertly balancing his dark-and-profound experiences with a irreverent-and-effervescent constitution. He weaves time jumps throughout the chronology of his life story, offering unique reflections of his headspace at historical moments of contemporary U.S. history. Interesting, inspiring, entertaining! (Lauren)

Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane
A mother in South Boston is out to determine what happened to her teenaged daughter. Set in the 1970s, as the court-ordered desegregation busing is about to begin for the Boston Public School district. I couldn’t put this down and anticipate seeing it made into a movie or tv series in the near future. (Amber)
(Please be aware that this book contains racist language.)

Some Desperate Glory by Emily Tesh
Dark, gritty space opera about escaping a cult, unmaking mistakes, and how you can never know what the “right” thing really is. (Renee)


The Diplomat (Netflix)
Keri Russell has been my B.F.F. since our college days, so I am fully endorsing her for V.P. of the United States. And, yes, she only *played* a college student, and we’ve never actually met…but, these are trivial details. (Amber)

Gomorrah (Max)
Napoli’s answer to Baltimore’s The Wire. It is a complex, violent, and occasionally darkly humorous account of the Savastano clan within the Camorra crime syndicate. Each episode is a gripping experience, with many unexpected events and dramatic shifts in power. (Lauren)
Check out our Max Roku to watch.

Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies (currently not streaming)
Started out slow, but the sapphic storyline is great, and some of the songs are memorable. (Ash)

A Small Light (National Geographic / Disney+)
I think Molly recommended this last month: the story of Miep, the woman who hid the Frank Family, in Amsterdam during WWII. It was very well done, terribly sad, but incredibly inspiring. (Elle)

Somebody Somewhere (Max)
I love this show so much and wish more people watched it. It’s a simple, quiet show about two middle aged friends in Kansas trying to figure life out. It’s big-hearted and so funny. Consider watching if you’re looking for something to lift your spirits. (Cathy)

Gomorrah (Max)

The Beaches
These ladies are a FORCE! (Amber)

The Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yarros
Instagram made me read it… and it lived up to its crazy hype!! (Elle)

Pageboy by Elliot Page
I’m sad to say that I was a bit disappointed by this memoir! It felt pretty rushed and disorganized. I wish he’d had a better editor. That being said, there are some powerful moments here and I’m definitely glad I read it and that Elliot Page got to tell his story. (Cathy)

Stick Season (We’ll All Be Here Forever) by Noah Kahan (iTunes)
Adding additional tracks to the already incredible Stick Season, these songs seem even more introspective and observant than the last. He is emerging as one of the best songwriters of our time. (Ash)

April 2023

April showers gave us plenty of time inside to watch, read, and listen.


Cleopatra and Frankenstein by Coco Mellors
I had been waiting for this book for a long time, and when I finally got to it I was hooked within the first few pages. Cleo and Frank meet by chance, but she is in NY on a student visa that is set to expire in 6 months. Within that time they will marry and start a life together which will alter not only their worlds, but the worlds of their friends and family that surround them. (Elle)

Factory Girls by Michelle Gallen
Attracted by a “fans of [tv show] Derry Girls will love this book!” review, I grabbed this book expecting a humorous story of teenage girls living in the midst of The Troubles in 1990s Northern Ireland. I didn’t find much humor (unlike Derry Girls, and unlike the review blurbs on the book cover), but I did find an emotional tale of the Troubles. It was a little sobering to realize that I was a happily oblivious tween over here in Massachusetts while events like the ones in the book were taking place. (Dana)

Foster by Claire Keegan
This novella is beautifully written and quietly heartbreaking. I read it in one sitting on a rainy morning, and once done immediately requested another book by this author. (Amber)

Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano
One of the best works of fiction I’ve read in a while. A deeply moving story about the lifelong impacts of childhood trauma/neglect and the healing power of love, sisterhood, friendship – and forgiveness. (Molly)

I’ll Show Myself Out by Jessi Klein
I’m in the middle of this one, and quite enjoying it. Klein’s writing style is easy to read and makes me laugh. It’s always comforting/validating to read stories from other moms who’ve been in the same boat, especially if they can help you see the humor in it all! (Dana)

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
Strong female protagonist, falling in love, and a DOG! What more could you need? I had so much fun reading this book. I even picked up a few cooking tips. (Tessa)

The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi
Short & fun novel about saving Kaiju from humans. Funny and light! (Renee)

The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan
Absolutely gut-wrenching novel about a woman who loses her child after a bad day. Super haunting, this still keeps me up at night. (Renee)


I was almost done reading Factory Girls (see review above) when I had the chance to watch this movie during a flight. That personal context made it extra fascinating to watch a film about the start of The Troubles. I thought the movie was excellent, a tear-jerker. (Dana)

Coriolanus is not one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays; it is a Roman tragedy with no love story, little humor, and the plot revolves around war. I love Shakespeare, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this story. To my surprise, I was thoroughly impressed with Ralph Fiennes’s adaptation of the play. The film uses Shakespeare’s language, but at no point was I confused thanks to Fiennes’s clever directing choices, although I could have done without the shakey camera effect during the fighting scenes. Overall, I ended up enjoying the film more than the play adaptation I saw a week later. (Tessa)

A Nazi spy thriller in true Hitchcock form. Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant star in probably one of the most beautiful pieces of cinema ever created. I didn’t want it to end! (Elle)

The Sopranos
Working my way through season 3. Body count: 20? (Elle)

Succession (HBO Max)
My favorite evil family is back, and I couldn’t be happier. Episode 3 of this new season was truly one of the most masterful episodes of television I’ve seen in recent years. (Cathy)
Check out our HBO Roku to watch.

Survivor (CBS)
I hadn’t watched an episode of this since season one, but I found my kids watching it one day and was surprisingly hooked. Jeff Probst hasn’t aged in 20 years, they recently changed the gameplay a bit, and I now find myself wanting to form alliances and vote people off the island in every day life. (Amber)

Truly, Madly, Deeply
Young Alan Rickman with a mustache! Need I say more? I’ve been meaning to watch this 1990 movie for many years and I’m so glad there was a DVD available in Minuteman for me to borrow. This is about a woman having a really hard time grieving the recent death of her boyfriend when he suddenly returns as a ghost! It’s one of those movies that has a somewhat silly premise but works because the actors are so great and fully committed. I enjoyed it a lot and it’s going on my list of favorite comfort watches. (Cathy)


Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano, read by Maura Tierney
I’m currently listening to this, and, to quote a friend, am waiting for this to become the amazing book the New York Times says it is. Maura Tierney, however, is an outstanding reader.

King of Battle and Blood by Scarlett St. Clair, read by Curt Bonnem and Austenne Grey
Vampires, witches, secrets and twisted fate! Finished it in a day. (Elle)

Pelerinaj by Erol Josue
Erol Josuè is an amazing artist and storyteller. This album truly takes the listener on a pilgrimage. (Molly)

Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
This was my first Ira Levin book and I really enjoyed listening to it on audio – Mia Farrow does a wonderful job with the narration! Fans of the movie should know that it’s very faithful to the book – very few things were changed. (Cathy)

March 2023

We are springing forward with these recent picks.


All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers
A winding whodunit with a hometown reporter asking all the questions. If you read this and like it, you can also tune in to a podcast called Crime Junkies by the author. (Deb)

All the Beauty in the World: The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Me by Patrick Bringley
This memoir is about Patrick Bringley’s ten years as a guard at the Met. Full disclosure: I was a guard at the Met for five of those years and Patrick is a former colleague, so I’m biased. But as someone who has always enjoyed behind-the-scenes stories, especially from the perspective of support staff, I think I still would have enjoyed this even without the personal connection. This book is an ode to the transformative and healing power of art, and also to the diversity of both the Met’s visitors and staff. (Cathy)

Book Lovers by Emily Henry
Cute. Light. Fluffy. Chick-lit. (Deb)

Bye Bye, Binary by Eric Geron
This is one of my toddler’s current favorites. He loves pointing and yelling “baby!!” as they pop out of a gender-reveal cake. (Dana)

Invisible Woman by Erika Robuck
Great WWII fiction featuring a real-life, strong female American spy working for the Brits in occupied France. (Deb)

Leeva at Last by Sara Pennypacker
Funny, smart and resourceful, Leeva is a character to cheer for. Perfect for fans of Roald Dahl and the Clementine series. (Jen)

On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong
Beautifully written, lyrical and devastating. This one is going to stay with me for a long time. (Dana)

Run Toward the Danger by Sarah Polley
I love when writers explore the concept of memory – how we remember formative or traumatic events in our lives, how those memories morph with time, and how they often stand in contrast to how others remember the same event. Sarah Polley examines all of this so movingly and wisely in this essay collection. Also, like Jeannette McCurdy’s I’m Glad My Mom Died, this book is a searing indictment of the exploitation and neglect of children in the entertainment industry. (Cathy)

She Is a Haunting by Trang Thanh Tran
Literary gothic horror (my favorite) explores themes of belonging and colonialism and a sinister horror novel. (Ash)


Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (in theaters)
My first trip to the movies in a year (yay mom-life!). It was okay; sufficiently entertaining. (Dana)

Extraordinary Attorney Woo (Netflix)
I’ve been watching this Korean drama about a lawyer with autism with my parents. It’s extremely wholesome and endearing, while highlighting real issues neurodivergent people face. I would be curious to hear from members of the autism community about this show, because I feel the portrayal sometimes leans on cliché a little bit. But overall, the writing is very sensitive and thoughtful, and I’m really enjoying it. (Cathy)

Luther: The Fallen Sun (Netflix)
I don’t like to share bad reviews, but I feel I would remiss for not forewarning fans of the Luther series to skip this one. There’s no comparing this movie (Idris Elba and Dermot Crowley are the only returning cast members) to the well-done and brilliantly terrifying BBC series. (Amber)
Check out our Netflix Roku to watch.

Pamela, a love story (Netflix)
Although the book (Love, Pamela) is better, I can think of worse ways to spend 90 or so minutes. (Amber)
Check out our Netflix Roku to watch.

Perry Mason, season two (HBO)
Everything about this series is divine. (Amber)
Check out our HBO Roku to watch.

School Spirits (Paramount+)
A teenager is murdered during school, and wakes up as a ghost who can’t leave school premises. But who murdered her? I’m enjoying the mystery so far. (Ash)

The Sopranos (HBO)
It’s spring time, which means its time for my annual bingeing of television’s best drama. Get the baked ziti ready! (Elle)
Check out our HBO Roku to watch.

The Unseen World by Liz Moore
Favorite novel of the year so far – it kept me up till 2AM several nights last week! It is the most immersive and captivating coming-of-age novel I’ve read in quite a while. I loved the characters, structure, and slow-burn mystery element. Also, I cried at the end which is rare for me with fiction. (Cathy)


The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi, narrated by Sneha Mathan
Great story. Strong women in a culture that might be less encouraging of strength in women. (Deb)

Pop by U2
I revisited a favorite album from my teen years. It didn’t hold up. (Dana)

Taste: My Life Through Food by Stanley Tucci
Some parts laugh-out-loud funny. Some parts heartbreaking. Some parts made me very hungry. (Deb)

A Touch of Darkness, A Touch of Ruin, A Touch of Malice by Scarlett St. Clair
This trilogy is set in New Athens, where the Greek gods are alive and well ruling in a modern world. It follows the imagined love story of Hades and Persephone as she comes to terms with leaving her life in the mortal world behind and ruling with Hades in the Underworld. (Elle)

February 2023

We packed a lot of Watching, Reading, and Listening into the shortest month of the year.


Africa Is Not a Country: Notes From a Bright Continent by Dipo Faloyin
Insightful, inspirational, and at times devastating, this book is worth reading for the overview of the Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 alone. It was during this meeting that European and American powers divvied up the African continent amongst themselves with no regard to language and ethnic boundaries, setting the stage for seemingly endless conflict and strife. (Janet)

Bailey’s Cafe by Gloria Naylor
So glad to have finally read a Gloria Naylor novel! Each chapter focuses on a different regular customer of Bailey’s Cafe, and opens with a monologue from Bailey about what he thinks about them. Most customers are down on their luck (to put it extremely lightly), and rooming at a place down the street that is impossible to find unless they’re meant to end up there. Recommend to those who like well-written literary fiction that is full of wisdom, humor (despite dark topics), and a dash of magical realism. (Cathy)

Black, Brave, First: 50+ African American Women Who Changed the World by Cheryl Willis Hudson; illustrations by Erin K. Robinson
Perfect read for Black History Month AND Women’s History Month. (Kelly)

The Bodyguard by Katherine Center
Cute! Light & fluffy. (Deb)

Call and Response: The Story of Black Lives Matter by Jennifer Harlan and Veronica Chambers
A call to action. (Molly)

Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
Riveting. (Molly)

Dinner: The Playbook, A 30-Day Plan for Mastering the Art of the Family Meal by Jenny Rosenstrach
Great ideas for dinners; short and simple! I love this book! (Kelly)

How To Spot a Best Friend by Bea Birdsong; illustrations by Lucy Fleming
Adorable and charming, short and sweet. (Kelly)

How We Fight For Our Lives by Saeed Jones
This memoir was captivating, with Jones’s lyrical writing style. (Ash)

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Good book. Interesting perspectives on both homelessness & domestic abuse (separately). (Deb)

Love, Pamela by Pamela Anderson
I took this with me on vacation and it was the perfect travel companion. I genuinely enjoyed this. (Amber)

Small Things Like These by Claire Keegan
A short but powerful book about a quiet hero in a small town in 1980s Ireland. (Janet)

Social Justice Parenting: How To Raise Compassioniate, Anti-Racist, Justice-Minded Kids in an Unjust World by Dr. Traci Baxley
This is one of the few parenting books I’ve actually enjoyed reading! Baxley’s writing style is very approachable, and I loved her idea of parenting through a lens of radical love. (Dana)

This Way Out by Tufayel Ahmed
Painful and heartwarming. (Deb)

3000 Degrees: The True Story of a Deadly Fire and the Men Who Fought It by Sean Flynn
This book provides a detailed, fascinating, and heartbreaking look at the Worcester Cold Storage fire, where 6 firefighters lost their lives in 1999. Flynn’s writing makes the reader feel like they’re right in the middle of the action. I remember watching the event unfold on the news and watching the funeral at school, and reading this book has been a pretty emotional exercise. (Dana)

We Will Rock Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins
We’re huge fans of Penelope the T-rex and her school adventures. Excellent books! (Kelly)


The Chronicles of Narnia series (start with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe)
We’ve started reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my 6-year-old, and watching the accompanying movie after we finish each one. It’s hard to tell which format my son enjoys more…though the sword fights and battle scenes might give the movies the edge. (Dana)

Ginny & Georgia (Netflix)
My teen asked me to watch this with her, and although I was initially unsure about it I am now hooked. The show is set in the fictional New England town of Wellsbury, and clearly has a great fashion designer and music director. (TW: this show portrays self-harm and eating disorders.) (Amber)
Check out our Netflix Roku to watch.

How To Get Away With Murder, season one
A bit late to the party with this one. I wouldn’t call this show great, but it’s definitely fun. The young people in the cast do not interest me a whole lot, but I enjoy seeing how terrified they all are of the Viola Davis character, the unstoppable Annalise Keating! She’s great in this (obviously) and I’m so happy to have five more seasons to go. (Cathy)

The Last of Us (HBO)
Scary. Not sure I can formally recommend. (Kelly)

Limitless (Disney+)
Limitless is a docuseries featuring Chris Hemsworth, famous for starring in Marvel’s Thor Movies. The series puts Chris through various challenges to make him think about his own mortality and how he can maximize his health; thus living a longer and more fulfilling life. How examples of stress, temperature shock, fasting, strength, memory and acceptance can all shape the way we deal with aging and death. I found it eye opening, educational and entertaining all at once. My kids enjoyed it too!
Check out our Disney+ Roku to watch.

The 1619 Project (Hulu)
Phenomenal. (Molly)
Check out our Hulu Roku to watch.

The Woman King
Action-packed war epics are typically not my preferred genre for movies, but I found The Woman King to be compelling and enjoyable. The cast was great, especially Viola Davis! (I also have to give a shout out to Lashana Lynch, who played Miss Honey in Matilda the Musical which I watched a couple of weeks ago. So fun to see her knock it out of the park in two completely opposite roles.) (Cathy)


The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
Almost as good as The Rose Code. Brilliant women, intrigue, romance, revenge! (Deb)

Blue Train by John Coltrane
A journey. (Molly)

Finding Me by Viola Davis
If I had known this audiobook’s very first chapter would make me tear up, I for sure wouldn’t have started it while waiting for the bus! I’ve read lots of celebrity memoirs, many of them great, and this is one of the best. I’m just in awe of Viola Davis, and this will definitely be one of my favorite books of the year. (Cathy)

The Girl in His Shadow (Nora Beady, #1) by Audrey Blake
Wonderful characters, wonderful history (albeit unfair). Looking forward to the next one! (Deb)

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover
Charming, empowering. Atlas seems too good to be true…to everyone: Ryle, Sutton, Josh…. (Deb)

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
What a great story! At first, I thought this was chick-lit meets Big Bang Theory but set in the 60’s. And it is a bit. And then I wondered if some of the meandering plot bits were really all necessary, but they all came together in the end! (Deb)

The Surgeon’s Daughter by Audrey Blake
Really great story! Glad we mostly don’t die from tetanus anymore. (Deb)

Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister
SUPER intriguing writing! This story reveals itself backwards, essentially. Only one of my guesses turned out to be true. I love a book that keeps me on my toes! (Deb)
