The Hit List - What I'm reading and watching right now

Okay, first of all: that picture. I saw it while I was cruising around on a stock photography site and laughed out loud. I can sooooo relate. Meaning: I read every night, but will also jostle between the television and whatever book is in my hand. Maybe it’s because I’m a Gemini. Or perhaps I have undiagnosed ADHD. Either way, I’m always consuming something, whether it’s educational or entertaining.

I thought I’d compile a list of the things I’m reading and watching right now (not that you’re interested, but maybe you are). Here’s what’s making my Gemini brain happy:

The Righteous Gemstones – This ridiculous comedy about a dysfunctional televangelist family is one of the better things I’ve watched recently. If you need a laugh, start here.

Satan Wants You – I’ve got this cued up for the weekend. It’s a documentary about the Satanic panic spurred by a book called Michelle Remembers. I actually read that book when I was a teen and thought it was fishy as hell. So now I get my confirmation, I guess.

Reservation Dogs – A funny, quirky tale about a group of teenagers living on a reservation. I finished this recently and was so sad it ended. It was that good. #WillieJackForEver

The Unwritten Book by Samantha Hunt – A spooky, deep, beautifully written book. Something to savor.

Tarot Life Lessons: Living Wisdom from the Major Arcana by Julia Gordon-Bramer – I just started tucking into this. So far, so good. I’ll let you know as I get further along.

Aliza Kelly’s Curiostiy Report is one of the smartest astrological newsletters. I devour it every week.

Poor Man’s Feast by Elissa Altman is a gorgeous newsletter devoted to food, sustenance, life, and creativity. I love seeing it in my inbox.

Dame Magazine has intelligent feminist fare. The antidote to the mainstream media.

Alright, that’s what’s on my list of stuff to watch and read. What about you? What are you into at this time? Any recommendations?
