Hey guys, if you've been keeping up with my posts then you might know I finished university last month and I am officially unemployed, which means I have endless hours to dedicate to Netflix. It's been a while since I did one of these posts, I decide a monthly TV post wouldn't be ideal because I don't think I get through that many. Some of these may have launched earlier but I definitely think they're still worth the watch! So without further ado, here are 5 TV shows to watch on Netflix this month.

I spoke about this show in my May favourites, and I feel by now all the chat about it on social media has died down so you'll be free from spoilers if you haven't binge watched it yet. This show is only on its first season so you have plenty of time to watch it before season 2 comes along (it's still pretty far away). There's been a lot of debate whether season 2 should even be taking place as the book only goes as far as the first, but I am interested to see how some of the storylines unfold and the aftermath of some of the characters actions.

Plot: Follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.


Another show that's been talked about all over my twitter timeline, and why wouldn't you when it features some seriously sexy cast members. Again this is quite a teeny show so you might not find yourself relating to a lot of their problems but it still makes for good entertainment. The cast features Cole Sprouse, KJ Apa (who is only 19?!), Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart. 

Plot: A subversive take on Archie and his friends, exploring small town life, the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade.


I have a love-hate relationship with this show. I love Britt Robertson as an actress but find the main character (Sophia) extremely annoying, but I guess they're just trying to portray what Sophia Amoruso (founder of Nasty Gal) is really like from what I've heard. It's a great show to watch when you're looking for motivation to just go and kick ass with whatever you want to do with your life. Ru Paul lovers, he's also a regular on the show. 

Plot: Sophia, a misfit, discovers a passion for fashion, becoming an unlikely businesswoman in the process. As her business grows, however, she has to learn to cope with life as her own boss. This show is loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso.


This is just a reminder that Season 5 is coming to Netflix this Saturday!! So if you still haven't got round to watching this, you have 3 days to get through all the episodes. This is probably one of my favourite shows and I don't know if I prefer the fact we get all the episodes at once and then have to wait a year or have them staggered out. I wrote a blog post all about season 4 and what we could learn from it, and if you've seen the trailer for Season 5 then you can probably tell it's going to be explosive! 

Plot: Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.


Ok so I haven't actually got round to watching this all yet, but I've put it on the list because after watching the first two episodes I already know it's going to be promising and provide some real truths and laughs. This is also on its first season so you can get through this in a couple of nights if you wish to!

Plot: At a predominantly white Ivy League college, a diverse group of students navigate various forms of racial and other types of discrimination.

✨ Have you watched any of these shows yourself? What TV shows are you currently binge watching? ✨



  1. Proud to say that I've watched all of these but the last one! Which does sound brilliant too, I might put it on now actually as I'm just waiting for the new season of OITNB to come out tomorrow, yAAAAAY! Great post, great shows and great way for people to find them! xxxx

    1. omg I'm even happier now that OITNB comes out tomorrow not Sat! can't wait x

  2. I don't watch a great deal of t.v. but I've actually seen all of these (you clearly have fab taste in t.v. shows!) except for Riverdale which sounds RIGHT up my street. I'll definitely have to give this a watch when I'm next ready to binge a series!

  3. Yes Riverdale is quite Teen orientated but I do love it all the same. It's got the perfect amount of cheese, drama and thrill in it! You've also reminded me I need to get back into Orange is the New Black! I only got through the first two series before I got distracted and gave up but I did love it! Great choices.

    lots of love Izzy | http://www.ADoseOfChatter.com

  4. I've recently finished Riverdale and Thirteen Reasons Why. I have OITNB and Girlboss on my to-watch lists and I'll hopefully make a start on the sometime soon...although I might wait for all of season 5 of OITNB to finish before starting.

    1. I remember hearing about it and wanted to put it on my list but forgot the name of it! Will do x

  7. I've watched 4 out of 5 so will get cracking on the last one. I was waiting for OITNB I love it!! Xxxxxxx


  8. I absolutely loved 13 reasons why! It was such an amazing and eye opening show! Next on my list is river dale xxx

  9. I've heard such mixed opinions on Girl Boss, I may have to give it a watch just out of curiosity! I'm watching Planet Earth on Netflix right now just because it's so calming and interesting, plus it's beautifully shot!

  10. I've only watched Riverdale in this list so maybe I should step up my game and get watching. I've heard mixed things on Girl Boss some people love it some not so much

  11. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT OITNB! It's probably a little sad but I can't contain my excitement any longer!

    I love this post it's amazing to see what you have been watching. Hope your as excited as I am about OITNB !

  12. I've only watched the first few episodes of Riverdale and that's it off your list! 13 Reasons Why and Girlboss are both on my list too! Dear White People sounds really interesting too!

  13. I love 13 Reasons Why, Girlboss and Riverdale too! I really want to watch Dear White People especially now!

  14. Is it bad that I have not seen any of these shows and I actually have a Netflix account I feel like I am actually failing at been a human right now

    Charlotte x

  15. I can't wait to watch OITNB I am so excited for this season!!!

  16. I'm in the same position as you - finished university and unemployed! The job hunt is so exhausting. I've just completed the fifth season of OITNB, aahh! Great picks :)


  17. Dear white people is something I really need to watch! I feel a bit torn about 13 reasons why though

  18. 13 Reasons Why and OITNB are two of my shows! Love that you included them. πŸŒΈπŸ’—✨

    With love, Alisha Valerie. x

  19. 13 reasons why was a bit controversial especially as psychologists etc warned that it could have devastating consequences for people. Sure enough the first copycat suicide happened fairly recently.
    Dear white people was one of my favourite shows for a long time. I thought that it was a really powerful message in a very entertaining format. Of course I love orange is the new black and I watched the whole of Season 5 in two days.

  20. I included Dear White People on my favourites post for last month, honestly it's sooooo good!! Watched all the others too and completely agree that they're all awesome, and Girl Boss is actually next on my list to watch! Such a good list you've made!

  21. Omg yaaaaas! Watched all except the last one. Can you believe that I'm only on season 2 of OITNB though? I need to catch up ASAP!

  22. I've not watched any of these I'm waiting for my maternity to bing watvh TV with a newborn!

  23. Dear White People is absolutely amazing and I can't wait for the second series. It completely blew my mind with how funny it is, but also makes some serious points and forces the audience to think for themselves. I also really enjoyed 13 reasons why even if it was harrowing. I'm thinking of starting Riverdale soon, but for some reason I'm just not into Girlboss. I think it's just been over-hyped a little. I love Netflix. I don't know what we did without it!

  24. Love love LOVE Riverdale. How are we going to manage without it for so long? I have the same love/hate issue with Girl Boss- from what I've watched it's a good show, but I just find Sophia to be such an annoying character that it kind of puts me off. And I really want to watch Dear White People. I'm currently addicted to watching Party of Five (its an American 90s show based on a family) and PLL.
