Hi everyone! Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week's topic is Top Ten New Autumn TV Shows I Want To Watch.


1. The Night Of
It has taken all of my restraint to not binge all of this already, as it's just come out on Sky Atlantic, because it just looks so good.
2. Atlanta
I love Donald Glover when he's acting, and I equally love him performing as Childish Gambino, so I'm very excited about this.

I think a lot of teenagers will be able to relate to this book and I am so happy it has been published.
