Five Shows You Need To Binge Watch On Netflix This Weekend


From the original Netflix series that is; 'Sierra Burgess Is A Loser' to fictional fan favourites such as 'You', is there really anything better than curling up on your sofa on a Friday night, a cup of tea in hand to watch the top trending shows at your fingertips? No, the answer is no - there actually isn't. Well, not unless you're off out with your friends this weekend, something the inner granny in me simply doesn't have time for these days, especially not when we could have people like Joe on the loose. I mean... I'm even looking Matthew up and down at this stage. P.s (only 'You' fans will really understand).

Nevertheless; I'm sure you have clicked on this post hoping to find a new program to binge watch this weekend and you're most definitely in the right place, regardless of which categories you enjoy most - mine just so happen to be; young adult fiction, horror, drama and supernatural, something of which you might notice from the shows listed below. So... in no particular order

Here are: Five Shows You Need To Binge Watch On Netflix This Weekend.

#1 - YOU


YOU is a Netflix Original Series based on the riveting and frankly quite hypnotic book store owner that is; Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley). Joe is an obsessive New Yorker who exploits today's technology to win the heart of his beloved Beck (Elizabeth Lail), amid the growing suspicions of her best friend Peach (Shay Mitchell). Joe readily transforms himself from stalker to boyfriend, while doing what it takes to eliminate all obstacles standing in his way - even if that means murder. YOU explores how vulnerable we are to stalking and manipulation both online and in the real world.

#2 - CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA 


Half witch, Half mortal. On her 16th birthday, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) has to make a choice, a choice between the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends. With her aunties (Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis), cat Salem and her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), Sabrina will face horrors and new adventures in the mysterious town of Greendale - but there is more than what meets the eye.

#3 - GIRL BOSS


Inspired by the New York Times best selling book #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso, founder the fashion brand Nasty Gal. The series centers around Sophia (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay from her then one bed apartment. We see her thrifting, upcycling and reselling her way to a multi-million dollar fashion empire called Nasty Gal, despite running into troubled waters with a group of sellers online.

#4 - TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE


What would happen if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them... all at once? Lara Jean Song Covey's love life goes from imaginary to out of control when the love letters for every boy she's ever loved - five in total - are mysteriously handed out. We see Lara confronted by each boy, but who will she end up with?

#5 - SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER


A wrong number text sparks a virtual romance between Sierra (Shannon Purser), a smart but unpopular teen and a sweet jock called Jamey (Noah Centineo) who thinks he's talking to Veronica (Kristine Froseth), a gorgeous cheerleader who taunts Sierra with cruel comments regarding her appearance at school. Much to my surprise; as the story unfolds Sierra bribes Veronica to meet Jamey, but will she show her true self?

  1. Ooh I loved and recommend YOU and Sabrina as well! YOU had me so gripped and I watched the whole thing in 2 days! Sabrina is so different to the old sitcom series but also sooooo good and the prefect blend of endearing and creepy!

    I've had Girlboss on my to watch list forever but haven't got round to watching it yet, guess that will be my next watch!

    1. You & Sabrina have to be two of my favourite Netflix shows so far, I believe there's a new Sabrina series coming out around April. I thought they would have kept Sabrina similar to the sitcom series, but it was really intriguing to see it modernized. Girlboss is fantastic, I love Britt Robertson in it.

    1. You had me gripped, it was hard not to finish the series in one night haha! Pity you didn't enjoy Sabrina, I half expected it to be a remake of the original sitcom but it was very different from what I remember. I'm glad you liked my post! x

  3. I've heard so many good things about 'you' and i'm also obsessed with gossip girl, I'm just slightly worried that 'you' might ruin it for me x
