July Watch List

A monthly update on what we're reading, watching and listening to, when we're not making soap that is.


Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney - The debut novel by Irish writer Sally Rooney is the book to pack in your hand luggage this summer.

The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway - I once read that Hunter S. Thompson used to type out A Farewell to Arms just to get the feeling of writing a classic. The Old Man and the Sea is that for me.


A Plastic Ocean - you can't help but want to take immediate action on the globe's most topical green issue after watching this documentary.

Westworld (HBO) - we missed the boat on this one when it first came out so we're playing catch up. Already addicted.


NoireThis neo-noir style Spotify playlist reminisces of 1940s / 50s film noir. It's dark and romantic and it might make you want to open your own P.I. firm.

The High Low - a weekly podcast by journalists Dolly Alderton and Pandora Sykes in which they break down current affairs into digestible chunks.
