halloween á la cinema

I have never really celebrated halloween, but I do love the spooky atmosphere that clings to misty streets, dusty cobwebs and just in the darkness of the night. The one thing that always contains this mysterious and slightly creepy vibe is movies, or cinema, if you will. I do not enjoy horror (and after watching Midsommar I’m also not sure if I enjoy thrillers), but I am a sucker for films that are just the right amount of spooky. Enough to be a little frightened of the dark, but not so much that I will not be able to run up the stairs without the lights on. That kind of scary. (And a dash of humor is always welcome!) I have put together a list of my favourite creep-and-still-be-able-to-sleep movies that we might need to get into the halloween spirit this year.

fantasy book series that i love

There’s nothing better than discovering a great book and realizing that there is more of that amazingness after you’ve read the first book. It’s the original binging and it’s great. But the search for a said book series is a difficult one. At least, in my experience. That is why I want to sum up my favorites in this post! I do hope a fellow booklover reads this and can give me recommendations as well 😉

a list of great movies everyone should watch

Last Sunday I cried my eyes out watching Dead Poets Society. It made me want to live my life to the fullest, read poetry, go to classes, go to a dark cave with my friends, study literature… Isn’t it beautiful that movies can have this effect on humans? How we laugh and cry and feel for these characters as they go through an adventure or life-changing experience? How we empathize and think about these moving images on a screen? For school I’ve done a lot of research in emotions and the movies and the connection between the two. I find it fascinating how this works and how we,  as spectators, can feel what characters feel, whilst we’re just sitting in a cinema or at home. I just love it. I just love movies.

my disney forever favourites

Did someone say Disney?
If you are spending a lot of time at home these days, maybe binging a few Disney movies may bring joy to your daily routine! And since I’m baffled with all the options every time I open up the app, I thought I’d make a list of disney movies I’d definitely watch again. To make my life easier, and to give you some tips on what movies to maybe add to your own list!
I also had a little too much fun pasting my head on all of these images. I hope it doesn’t freak you out. It certainly has that effect on me.

my summer reads ☼

Let’s talk about books!! On goodreads I set myself a challenge: read 19 books in 2019. That’s never going to happen in the last 4 months, because so far I’ve only read 8 books. The goal a way to stimulate myself to read more often, so I’ll just try to get as far as possible. This summer I read three books – three really different books – that I wanted to give a little review on!
