Spring 2023: What to Read and Watch

It’s almost springtime! It’s time to put away the heavy coats and enjoy the warmer weather. But if you’d still rather stay inside, we have some books, TV shows and movies to share with you. Keep reading to see what we’re going to read and watch this spring.

This blog post is all about what to read and watch in spring 2023.


1. Spare by Prince Harry

Our book review for Spare released last week and we recommend it as a spring read. Spoiler alert: we hardly knew anything about the royal family before watching Netflix’s Harry and Meghan. We learned so much from this book and found it to be well-written.

Check out our previous blog post to read our full review.

2. Angels & Demons by Dan Brown

Angels & Demons is the first book in Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon series. Robert Langdon is a symbology professor at Harvard University, who ended up getting involved in a mystery concerning the Vatican and a secret society.

We’ve had the Robert Langdon books on our TBR for a while, so we can’t wait to start the series.

3. Seven Percent of Ro Devereux by Ellen O-Clover

We came across Seven Percent of Ro Devereux recently and we knew we had to read it. It’s about a girl named Ro Devereux, who turns the popular childhood game of MASH into an app that can accurately predict your future.

The book looks to be funny, romantic and unique. We used to play MASH as kids so we’re excited to see what this app can do. It released back in January.

4. French Kissing in New York by Anne-Sophie Jouhanneau

French Kissing in New York is advertised as perfect for fans of the Netflix show Emily in Paris.

Last year, Margot met an amazing guy in Paris. Now, Margot is moving to New York City to start working as a chef and she’s ready connect with Zach. But a lot can change in a year. This book is all about finding yourself during the summer and maybe finding a romantic connection along the way.

5. Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova

We’re continuing to read Maria Konnikova’s psychology books. Mastermind is all about How to think like the detective Sherlock Holmes.

Konnikova believes that by studying Holmes’s methods and combining them with modern psychology and neuroscience, we can all improve our deductive reasoning and detective skills. We’re curious to see how Konnikova analyzes and portrays Holmes.

TV Shows and Movies

1. Bel-Air

Bel-Air released on February 23rd on Peacock and new episodes are available every Thursday. We’re excited to have the new season of Bel-Air to watch this spring and see how Will Smith and the Banks family handle new challenges.

For Fresh Prince of Bel-Air fans, Bel-Air is modern adaptation of the original story. Instead of it being a sitcom, it’s now a drama that handles issues such as racism and classism. The cast is spectacular and the storylines are intriguing.

2. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

We’re big Bridgerton fans, so we’re ecstatic to see that Queen Charlotte is releasing on May 4th. For those waiting for Bridgerton season 3, this show will bring you back to same world.

We know Queen Charlotte as an adult, but in this show, we get to learn about her background and her path to becoming Queen. We can’t wait to learn more about Charlotte and see what she was like when she was young.

3. Top Chef: Season 20

It’s time for Top Chef! While we hoped Top Chef would be releasing earlier in 2023, we’re just happy to have our favorite culinary show back.

Season 20 is World All Stars, meaning the top chefs from around the world are competing for the top culinary prize. If you’re an American viewer, expect to see new faces and old favorites.

Top Chef premiered on March 9th and airs on Bravo on Thursday nights. We can’t wait to see what these chefs can do.

4. Transatlantic

Transatlantic is a mini-series coming to Netflix on April 7th set during World War II. It’s about a rescue mission put together by Americans to help people in Marseilles escape Europe. We both love history, so we can’t wait to watch a show set during a tumultuous time in European, which follows writers and artists.

5. 80 for Brady

Paramount is going to stream 80 for Brady eventually and we hope it’s by this spring. We’re big New England Patriots fans, so a movie about this historic Super Bowl is something we have to see. Especially now since Tom Brady is retired, we’re excited to see him in a film instead of just a game. Who knows, maybe it’s his new career path.

80 for Brady promises to be hilarious. We hope it exceeds our expectations.
