Need Some Reading/Viewing Suggestions for Our Time in Isolation?

If you feel like you’ve read and watched everything of interest to you these days, try a few of my “If you liked” suggestions. If you’d like to support your local bookstore, many are delivering or mailing books. Feel free to try my local bookstore, The Hickory Stick:

If you liked Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, read her unfinished novel Sanditon. (Gets extra points for a wonderful BBC miniseries of Sanditon you can binge watch after reading the book.)

If you liked The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, known as one of the all-time-best thrillers, (and a terrifying series) read The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. Hard at work on a suspense novel, I’m reading The Turn of the Screw now for inspiration and let’s just say I’m sleeping with the lights on most nights. So, beware, but if you like suspense, it’s so good and also a great limited series with Michelle Dockery and Chloe Sevigny AND Dan Stevens, Matthew Crowley from Downton Abbey.

If you liked Sense and Sensibility, another fabulous Jane Austen, try Jane’s Love &Friendship. When you’re done reading, you can lose yourself in the Amazon series starring Kate Beckinsale.

I hope those get you through a few days of seclusion. Just think how well-read and well-watched we’ll all be when this grave chapter in our lives is done and we can emerge.
