1. Watch Beyond Stranger Things.


It may be a year before we can find out WTF is happening in Hawkins/The Upside Down, but I'd very much recommend getting into this lovely little series of discussions with the cast and producers of the show. It's fun and light and very gifable.

Watch it on Netflix.

Or check out the pilot for Sea Oak, a new Amazon series starring Glenn Close and based on a short story by recent Man Booker Award winning author, George Saunders.

2. Read How To Be a Craftivist.

This book is as sharp as it is lovely, and follows Sarah Corbett's journey to connect with her MPs and make change through crafting. If you're in London, Corbett will be discussing the book at the endlessly wonderful Lush Book Club on November 23rd.

Or cuddle up with one of these cosy books recommended by authors.


3. Listen to Man on the Mountaintop.


This new audio production features the voice talents of Stanley Tucci and Toby Jones and spins the wise and funny story of a hermit who doles out advice to the people who come to visit him. It's warm and lively and great winter listening.

Get it from Audible.

Or give the new album by Paloma Faith a listen.

4. Download Snake Vs Block.


A nice twist on some classic arcades, this one's a guaranteed addiction so what are you waiting for?

Get it for iOS and Android.

Or build your dream team with Marvel Contest of Champions.

5. Cook these completely delicious jiggly cheesecakes.

I used to live next door to a bakery who did these and CAN CONFIM they are like eating heaven.

Or make this extra mac and cheese that I'm completely obsessed with.

7. Follow @minalimadesign

The design duo behind the Harry Potter films are brilliant, even outside of the Wizarding World. Above is one of their illustrations for a brilliant interactive edition of Peter Pan. Follow them on Instagram for dreamy, magical artwork.

Or follow @SubwayBookReviews for some reading inspo.
