Sick Day Routine // Recommendations

Hi Friends,
For the past week I have been battling a summer cold. Unfortunately, I tend to get sick fairly often, which is never fun. I wanted to talk about my sick day routine in this post, but make it bookish. I will be recommending some books and movies that are great for when you are having a sick day.

Sleep: When I’m sick, I try to sleep as much as possible. Sleep helps you conserve your energy and nothing is better than sleeping off a cold. Sometimes, it’s hard to sleep when you are under the weather, but I try to take night time cold pills. If that doesn’t work, I take melatonin to help me wind down.

Shower: I don’t know about you, but I take hot showers on the regular when I’m sick. They are comforting, and help to open up my lungs. The steam is especially great for dealing with congestion. Showers are great for body aches and chills as well.

Warm Drinks: I try to stay hydrated as much as possible. I like to have warm beverages, since they soothe my throat. I wouldn’t go for something too sweet, particularly if you have a sore throat. I prefer hot coffee myself, but hot tea is a good option as well.

Roald Dahl: This British author has written many classic children’s books, like ‘James and the Giant Peach’ and ‘The Witches’. I have only read Dahl’s ‘Matilda’, but I think his work is very easy to read and perfect for a sick day.

‘Coraline’ by Neil Gaiman: You might be familiar with this spooky middle-grade. I think that the story is fairly fast-paced and a tame yet creepy read. It is a good book for when you are laying in bed all day and want to be entertained.

‘Heartstopper’ by Alice Oseman: I haven’t read this manga series, but I hear that it is cute and sweet. Honestly, a lighthearted, contemporary graphic novel series is a great sick day read. Mangas are pretty easy to get through and follow, so you won’t have a hard time picking up where you left off if you happen to doze off. Hey, it can happen when you’re sick.

Disney: When you are sick, nothing is better than watching classic Disney movies. You can watch you favorite Disney princess movies, or some Pixar films. Personally, I think Disney Channel Original movies are the best to watch when you’re not feeling great. Lounging in bed with some childhood nostalgia makes a sick day a little more bearable.

‘The Princess Bride’: This movie is full of adventure, laughter and love. It keeps you engaged, and isn’t too long of a film. Also, the movie is totally quotable. I mean who can forget lines a like “As You Wish” and “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die”.

‘House, MD’: When you’re sick nothing is more fun to watch than sick people. Honestly, House is interesting, funny, and completely different than most medical shows on the air today. I am telling you – getting cozy in bed on a sick day and watching a House marathon is great medicine.

I hope that you are all feeling well, and liked this post. I know everyone’s sick days look different, so it was fun sharing my routine with you all. Don’t forget to follow the blog to get notified about more post.

My Top Binge Worthy Shows

Hello Book Lovers,
I am not only a bookworm, but a TV junkie as well. I won’t say that I watch a ton of shows, still I do have some favorites that I enjoy and rewatch. I thought it would be fun to share my top binge worthy shows with you. I know that these shows can be streamed on one service or another, which I generally appreciate.

Gilmore Girls:This is probably my all time favorite show that I can watch time after time. I have the urge to say that I liked the show before it was cool. The WB original series follows mother and daughter Lorelei and Rory Gilmore as the navigate work, school, relationships and family drama. The show is set in the fictional small-town of Stars Hollow, and is still one of the most quotable shows ever, if you ask me. You can watch all seven season plus the 2018 revival on Netflix. I could go on about this series forever, so if you want me to do more Gilmore related post please let me know.

Grey’s Anatomy: Would this be a true binge worthy list without Greys? I think not! I have a season love, hate relationship with this medical drama. The show follows the personal lives of interns, residents and attending physicians at a Seattle hospital. Although, this is a medical drama most of the show centers around the physicians personal struggles with Dr. Meredith Grey being the main focus of the series. I must admit that I haven’t caught up with the past two seasons, and feel a bit like the show has run its course. I am a big fan of seasons 1 through 10, and gosh do I miss Dr. George O’Malley. You can watch past season on Netflix and the current season 17 on Hulu.

ER: Yep, another medical drama! I cannot be the only one that love and miss this series. Just like Greys, the plot centers on the physicians of County General Hospital in Chicago. However, the series focused more on the medical side of things than the characters lives. Not to say that the doctors didn’t play a huge role in episodes, but was more about the ins and outs of working in a hospital. We still got to see their relationships and struggles outside of the hospital, which was always nice. Also, before there was McDreamy, there was Dr. Ross. I personal was a Dr. Carter girl myself, but to each their own. You can stream all the seasons of this classic gem on Hulu.

911: This is the last medical show I promise. I don’t even know if I can classify this as a medical drama, but I am going for it. I would say this is more of a drama-comedy since there is a lot of lightheartedness to the episode, yet some of the medical “cases” are bizarre. The show centers on first responders such as firefighters, paramedics, police officers and of course 911 operators. I can truly attest to how binge worthy, and addictive, this series is because me and my mom binge watched the first and second seasons in just a matter of days. You can catch up on all the episode on Hulu.

Law and Order Special Victims Unit: I feel like this is another no brainer binge worthy show. The show follows the New York City police force that handles crimes of sexual nature. I cannot believe that it is on the 22nd season, but show is still kicking ass. Excuse my language. I think the plots haven’t been as interesting as I would like this season, but I am still watching. I watch old episodes when I get a chance and still enjoy them just as much as I did the first time around. Also, I have a major crush on Carisi. Sorry not sorry. It was available on Netflix, but I don’t know if that is still the case. I do know you can watch every season on Hulu.

Superstore: I am going to through this in here, because it is a show that I have been dying to binge. Yes, I haven’t seen the entire series yet, but me and my husband loved the first season of this comedy. This is a half-hour comedy about the employees of a “Wal-Mart” type store, and their hilarious work days. I want to say it is The Office, but set at a retail store. However, I have never actually seen the office so I cannot be sure. I will say that this is a very underrated series that I need to catch up on. The sixth and last season has already aired, so I hope to marathon series soon. I know that you can watch most, if not all, the seasons on Hulu.

I had a lot of fun taking about some of my favorite series. I hope you like this post and please feel free to leave me post recommendations in the comments. It would mean a lot if you liked and shared this post. Also, don’t forget to follow the blog to get notified when I post.

Mid-Month Reading Update

Hello bookish friends.
This is a quick little mid-month reading, watching and listening update.I thought it would be fun to let you know how my reading has been going. Also, I thought I would throw in what I have been watching and listening too lately. I plan to do this type of post each month, so I hope you guys like it.

Reading
I have read three books this month, which isn’t bad in my opinion. I am hoping to finish two more books before the end of the month. I know my original goal was 9 books, still I am very happy with how my reading is going. I am sticking to my monthly tbr as well.

Movies
Netflix’s Prom The Musical (8.0/10.00 Stars): This was such a cute and fun musical. It is based on a Broadway musical, and stars some amazing actors. All the songs were great, yet my favorites has to be “Love Thy Neighbor.”

The Live Action Tom and Jerry Movie (4.0/10.0 Stars): I have never been a Tom and Jerry fan, so I might not be the target audience for this movie. I can appreciate the modern day take on the classic cartoon, but I felt it lack something. It was slow at times and not very funny.

Legally Blonde (9.0/10.0 Stars): Yep! We watched this 2000s gem. It was a good time and I fell in love with this movie all over again. Need I say more.

Valley Girl (5.0/10.0 Stars): This movie was a 2020 release, and is a musical with a Romeo and Juliet type plot. The songs where covers of classic 80s hits, still the over all story was a bit mundane. However, despite my low rating I would watch this movie again. Yeah I am strange.

TV
Me and my husband are making our way through a few shows right now. Below are the shows we are watching and the episode we are on.
Avatar the Last Airbender (Season 1, Episode 3)
Fringe (Season 1, Episode 1)
Nip/Tuck (Season 1, Episode 3)
House MD (Season 1, Episode 6)
Gilmore Girls (Season 3, Episode 8)
Pretty Little Liars (Season 1, Episode 1)

Listening
I have only been listening to the Prom: The Musical soundtrack and Willow by Taylor Swift. I need some knew music recommendations.

There is my mid-month update! Let me know what you have been reading, watching and listening too. Please support my book blog by liking and sharing this post. You can follow the blog to get notified when I post.
