Watch List: Groundbreaking documentaries on every subject◇

Hello Bookworms, I’ve been watching a ton of documentaries lately; whether it be for school or just personal enjoyment. I’ve decided to compile a list of documentaries I have seen or hope to! I hope this will incite you to watch a few(they should all be online or on Netflix) or discover some unusual ones! I’m very passionate about animals so there may be an abundance of that genre in the list – sorry not sorry. And of course, recommend me all your favourites in the comments!

  1. Ahhh, I love nature documentaries (even though I’m still heavily traumatized from childhood memories of watching that one scene in Planet Earth where those jungle ants get infected by a fungus that eventually grows theough their brain 🤢😅), so you know what I’ll be doing these next few weeks! Thanks for compiling this list! 🤗

  2. I love documentaries too! One of my favorite series is Big Pacific. I learned so much, and the views were breathtaking. I will definitely be trying some of your recommendations soon!

  3. Ahh this took me back to when I was a kid (saying that makes me sound SO OLD lol) when I watched every documentary of Planet Earth (narrated by David Attenborough, who is the one person I’ve never met I can definitely say changed my life) until I knew them by heart!!! Great post!
