A fun podcast, a book/TV series duo, and a new Instagram account we're following that's a game-changer. Where are you finding joy this week?

Do yourself a favor and read the book AND watch the Hulu original series Little Fires Everywhere. 

Mystery, suspense, wildly contrasting worlds colliding, this story is filled with discussion starters and interesting themes. The book by Celeste Ng transports you head first into whodunit mystery, making it a real page turner. While it's TV counterpart staring the charming Reese Witherspoon and enigmatic Kerry Washington, is just as binge-worthy as the book. 
Little Fires Everywhere is the latest novel from bestselling author, Celeste Ng. Set in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Little Fires Everywhere tells the story of Elena Richardson, a woman who thrives on structure and rules, and her family. When Mia Warren, an artist who has been living a nomadic lifestyle as a single mother with her daughter, Pearl, arrives in town, it threatens everything that Mrs. Richardson has known. Slowly, Mia becomes the enemy of Mrs. Richardson. Meanwhile, in another part of town, close friends of the Richardsons have adopted a Chinese-American baby, which results in a custody battle. When a fire breaks out in the Richardson home, the town is buzzing with their ideas on who the suspect is.
