The story centers around a reporter who finds herself thrust into a world of chilling conspiracies, shadowy figures, and deadly stakes of the highest order.

    In January of 1946, a young writer named Julie Ashton is searching for a subject for her next book when she stumbles onto a letter from a man on the small German occupied island of Guernsey. What she discovers is a fascinating group of Guernsey natives who gather for a book club beneath the watchful eye of German soldiers and in doing so, gain a reprieve from the fear of their day-to-day lives. Fortunately, the Netflix adaptation is every bit as charming as the novel itself.

    The 2013-2014 Ebola epidemic was a devastating and terrifying international crisis.

    Alias Grace (Movie Tie-In Edition)

    Alias Grace tells the story of one of the most notorious women—and murder cases—of the nineteenth century as only Margaret Atwood could. With the pacing of a tightly-wrought thriller and the extraordinary human insight that defines Atwood’s work, Alias Grace is the sort of read you can’t put down. Unsurprisingly, the six part Netflix adaptation is as bingeable as the novel itself.

    Anne of Green Gables

    Anne of Green Gables is an oft-adapted classic. Netflix’s Anne with an E is the latest take on the beloved characters. While Anne with an E is an occasionally darker and more grounded take on Anne’s escapades, it’s no less an enjoyable find for those looking to make a trip to Avonlea.

    #GIRLBOSS

    It’s hard to top Sophia Amoruso’s story. In the span of a few years, the high school dropout went from hitchhiking and petty theft to opening a vintage clothing shop on eBay that would quickly become a multi-million dollar phenomenon. It’s the sort of thing great TV is made of–a realization that was not lost on the folks over at Netflix.

    Our Souls at Night

    Our Souls at Night is a poignant exploration of the lives of two widowers navigating loneliness and grief. What begins as a friendship and a means to alleviate their feelings of isolation slowly blossoms into a second chance at romance. Reuniting Hollywood icons Jane Fonda and Robert Fonda for the Netflix adaptation certainly didn’t hurt the novel’s transition to the screen.
