Being in the marketing industry requires at least a slight knowledge of most things pop culture. So, it’s not surprising that here at Asen, we’re all keeping up with the newest entertainment. Take a look at what shows, books and movies we are all enjoying this month!
P.S. if you haven’t heard of MoviePass, I highly recommend looking into seeing if it is available in your area.
Recommended by: Mark Genre: Fiction/Thriller What Made Him Love It: Fun murder mystery cop novel series that is set in the Twin Cities Minnesota area. No deep thinking is required, just a fun read.
Recommended by: Mark Genre: Historical Drama What Made Him Love It: Excellent acting and cinematography. A unique look into the mind and personality of a not well known historical figure. Nice counterpoint/prequel to Dunkirk if you liked that film.
Recommended by: Ally Genre: Historical Drama What Made Her Love It: It is fun to see Meryl Streep in roles of strong, independent women, but this movie her character’s growing confidence is what makes her a role model for all women to look up to.
Recommended by: Amanda Genre: Action What Made Her Love It: All the Marvel movies are good, but Thor: Ragnarok is definitely one of the funniest – the dialogue and casting is perfect!
Recommended by: Ally Genre: True Crime What Made Her Love It: I am obsessed with anything True Crime, and I am also a follower of fashion, so this was a no-brainer for me!
Recommended by: Melissa Genre: Self-Care What Made Her Love It: One of my favorite parts of the job has always been the natural high that I get when a design comes together or when I solve a code issue. This book explores that feeling, why it happens and how it affects us, and I’m enjoying learning more about the subject.
Recommended by: Derek Genre: Historical What Made Him Love It: I’m thoroughly enjoying The Story of World War II. It was Paul, of course, who sparked my interest. The book is eye-opening — we all know about World War II, but diving into the details of it really puts the enormity of it into perspective and educates about how much it contributed to modern day society and world politics.
Recommended by: Melissa Genre: Comedy-drama What Made Her Love It: Really great Amazon Original with interesting characters and beautiful cinematography.

Recommended by: Brookney Genre: Comedy-drama What Made Her Love It: This series had me captivated with the opening scene… never lost interest. Truly a work of art.
