Best Halloween Movies

captura-de-ecra-2016-10-19-as-18-45-48

Hi book lovers!!!

Halloween is almost here!! YEEY

And like always I gather some movies to see in that week! ❤

I am not a very big fan of Horror movies so I will do a mix of 15 movies – some scary and some just pure nice halloween related.

I love movies with supernatural elements like magic, vampires, witches and so on so I decided to share them and see if you guys could give me some ideas of movies that I haven’t thought about!

I will also mention some series that I usually see around this time of the year until Christmas and some others that I am seeing this year or that I feel that it would be nice to.

All the titles will be linked to IMDB.

Hope you guys like the ideas!

In no particular order let’s get to this:

captura-de-ecra-2016-10-08-as-10-40-36

1. Hocus Pocus

This is one of my ultimate favorite movies! It’s so much fun and with all the halloween aspect a person can ask for! It’s passed in 1693 in Salem where there is some weird looking witches – The Sanderson sisters – that want to absorb every kid’s youth for them to live forever!  I love old times feeling of movies so it’s right out my alley! Obviously I see it every halloween!! ❤

2. Halloweentown

This is a trilogy but in my opinion the first one is the best. It’s  a super fun teenage type of movie. It started with a teenage named Marnie arguing with her mother on why can’t she and her siblings go out on halloween, when their grandmother comes for her annual halloween visit. She is an experienced witch and wants to tell them all about halloween and the parallel world where she lives called Halloween Town. It’s the perfect cute halloween type of movie!

3. The Addams Family

A classic! I love it!! Addams family is just creepy awesomeness! I used to see the cartoon when I was little and I think it was because of that that I turned in such a fan of halloween in general! I love how macabre and bizarre it is!

4. Beetlejuice

This one I am ashamed to say I haven’t seen but I bet it’s just as good as Sweeney Todd or Edward Scissorhands! So I decided to include it here and I will totally see it this halloween!! YEY Although this movie is a comedy fantasy and it talks about ghosts that are hunting their former home!

5. The Nightmare Before Christmas

I love this movie and I usually see it every year! The best part other than the characters design is for sure the music! ‘This is halloween’ it’s just freaking awesome!! I kinda sing it all over the year but I would say it makes more sense now haha…

6. Corpse Bride

I think you can slightly notice a pattern here… I love everything Tim Burton! And this one is also a super nice halloweenie one! It’s so cute and once again the characters are so cool!!

Captura de ecrã 2016-10-08, às 10.47.11.png

7. Frankenweenie

This one has a slightly darker side than Corpse Bride and it’s a awesome movie!! Full of emotions and in ‘black and white’ 😛 It’s about a boy that loves since and when his dog dies he tries to getting back to life! But soon is idea turn into chaos for the all city!

8. Sleepy Hollow

Another Tim Burton’s movie… I really like this one because it’s passed in 1799 and I love old type of movies! This one has everything, it’s slightly creepy but not scary, it has that weird feeling of a small town and all the conspiracies and also witchcraft! Plus I love Christina Ricci!

9. Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

It’s about a vampire that talks about his early life to the interviewer and we are transported to 1791 where everything started. I really like this movie! It’s a bit creepy sometimes but not that much in my opinion, just the right amount! But it’s an awesome movie! And of course I love vampires so….


Here starts the slightly more scary ones…

Captura de ecrã 2016-10-08, às 10.55.50.png

10. Poltergeist

This movie is set in a California suburb, the plot focuses on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family’s younger daughter. This was not that scary okay… It was pretty cool actually but it defiantly has a bit of a creep to it… definitely not as scary as for example The Sinister in using children but much better movie! Of course it has more impact with kids in the plot but this one didn’t change so much the fact of using them or not, it didn’t bother me so much.

11. The Exorcist

This was a nice one but pretty disgusting if you ask me… Gave me the creeps! But it has a nice feeling to it, old type. Basically all the movie is around a 12 years old girl that is possessed and her mother tries to do everything to have her back, including exorcism.

12. The Omen

I saw this movie long ago and I didn’t know the name. This year I found it again and saw it. I really liked the first movie. It’s just slightly creepy and it has once again that old feeling to it!  The film talks about a young child adopted at birth by American Ambassador Robert Thorn without her wife knowing, after their own son is stolen at birth. They are surrounded by mysterious and ominous deaths, unaware that the child is the Antichrist.

13. Annabelle

I actually really liked this one! It’s super scary in my opinion but I have seen it so much anyway! But I remember the first time I saw it I didn’t sleep that great HAHA “In 1970, John and Mia live in Santa Monica and they are expecting their first child. John gives her a doll that she has been trying to find. At night, Mia hears a murder occurring at their neighbors – the Higgins – house . When Mia calls the police, she is attacked by a woman holding the doll and a male accomplice.  John and the police arrive and kill the man while the woman kills herself by slitting her own throat. A drop of her blood falls on the face of the doll in her arms. A news report shows that the assailants were Annabelle Higgins and her boyfriend.” And there it starts.

14. The Conjuring

Other one that surprisingly I really liked. It’s for sure scary but it’s a great movie!  gathered a lot of pillows and still it kinda freaked me out… But I am a chicken so… A family with 5 children move to a new farmhouse. Paranormal events occur within the first few nights: all of the clocks stop at exactly 3:07 AM and so on. Until they see that the only option is to call demonologists – Ed and Lorraine Warren – who agree to take on the case.

15. The Visit

This movie was so freaking messed up! And it really scared me in some moments!! It was the weirdest thing ever! Two kids that never met their grandparents do to their mothers divorce her invited to spend some time at their house. They know that their mother hasn’t talked to them in 15 years so they want to film a documentary to later show her. Their grandparents give them some rules and one of them is to never leave the room after 9.30pm. But everything goes wrong when they do.


For some halloween appropriate series I have:

captura-de-ecra-2016-10-08-as-11-14-46

1. Charmed

One of my ultimate favorite series! It’s about a trio of sisters that learn that they are witches and have to combine their powers – The Power of Three – to protect innocent lives from evil beings such as demons and warlocks.

2. Sabrina the Teenage Witch

I have seen this series countless times! It’s about a teenage girl named Sabrina Spellman, who, on her sixteenth birthday, discovers she has magical powers. She lives with her 600-year-old aunts, witches Hilda and Zelda, and a talking cat Salem. The series shows her life as a witch in the normal world.

3. Supernatural

I saw this so long ago! And I really should re-watch it!  The series follows the two brothers – Sam and Dean – as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings in the world!

4. Ghost Whisperer

I love Ghost Whisperer and I love Melinda Gordon and her style. This show talked about Melinda who has a gift. She can talk to the dead and she has to help them end their unfinished business and walk them into the light. It’s a sure fun show with a darker side!

5. Sleepy Hollow

This is the only one I haven’t seen from my list but it’s very well ranked and seems pretty interesting. I would definitely try it out!

6. American Horror Story

I actually really enjoyed seeing this series. It’s the weirdest thing ever but it’s pretty cool! I only saw 4 seasons but I really enjoyed it. They sure are odd and sometimes I was so hooked seeing it that I couldn’t so anything more! It’s super addicting. I really liked season 2 and 3.

Also the new series Stranger Things in Netflix is pretty cool !!

What’s your favorite halloween movie?

MUAHAHAHA!! Sorry… Oh! Hi guys!!!

It’s Halloween month!! Anyone here that loves halloween other than me? 

I love this time of the year! I love the blankets, the candles, the warm sweaters, and to snuggle with books with a cup of hot tea or chocolate ❤

So I decided to read some books related to this time, some spooky cute stories or some supernatural ones, like I mentioned in my last TBR.

I will now share 12 books that I would love to read in this time of the year! I am not a very big fan of horror so I will go with stuff I feel I always loved to read in this month, like vampires, witches, strange things, supernatural things… 

In the end I will mention 5 books that have very good reviews on it that I would totally read if I wasn’t a chicken.

Hope you guys like the ideas!

In no particular order:

1. The Graveyard Book by Nail Gaiman

I am so excited to read this book!! I heard great things about it and finally I have it!! And I love the cover of this book. It’s illustrated by Chris Riddell that wrote the Goth Girl series and if you haven’t seen it’s illustrations yet they are amazing!!

2. Coraline by Nail Gaiman

3. Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Well this one I know it’s not for everybody but I personally love it! And I really wanna read the reimagined version and compare!

9460487

 

 

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

I already read this books and it was spring but I think this would be a good read for now! It’s not spooky but it’s just… peculiar… and I loved the story and the odd photographies! And if you haven’t read it yet what better time than now that the movie is coming out?!

5287473.jpg

 

5. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

I personally love books that talk about witches… And this one is for sure one that I will read! It seems super interesting and totally right out of my alley!!

18660669.jpg

 

 

6. Vampire Academy by Rachel Meed

Once again we have vampires and this series is pretty good! I love anything vampire but this one I would for sure recommend! I read this way too long ago and I never ended the series but I intend to buy the box set probably still this year!

11408650

 

7. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

I heard so great things about this book! I love the synopsis and a lot of people say that it actually has some creepiness to it and I can’t wait to buy this trilogy!!

9378297.jpg

 

 

8. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

This is not a very creepy book at all but because it has ghosts I thought why not? It’s such a different book! If you haven’t read this one check out the synopsis in the image, it’s awesome!!

12043771.jpg

 

9. This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

I am not a big fan of anything zombie but this book really intrigued me and will be probably the only book I will read ever about zombies! Zombies creep me out way too much!

12813630.jpg

 

 

10. The Coldest Girl in Cold Town by Holly Black

And last but not least The Coldest Girl in Cold Town that I have been wanting to read for far too much time! I just think it has the perfect atmosphere for this time of the year!!

And for some Classics we have:

14800993.jpg

11. Dracula by Bram Stoker

This is a classic that has been in my TBR from some time now and I haven’t bought it yet because I always want to buy it for halloween and that just never happens! But for sure I will read it and hopefully love it!

12974171.jpg

 

12. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

This is another one with the same problem that I so much want to read and much probably I will have to just buy it in a random time and save it a bit for halloween (or not because I really wanna read it super badly :p)

 

And I will just mention one more that I loved to read as a kid: The Witches by Roald Dahl.


I will now mention 5 books I would totally read in October – that are already considered as horror – but that I don’t think I am up to it yet. Also the link for goodreads is in the names!

Here they are in no particular order:

1. The Shining by Stephen King

I admit I always kinda wanted to read Stephen King because I heard great things about his books but I don’t feel brave enough yet if it actually is horror… What do you guys think??

2. Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell

This one is in my ‘maybe pile’ and it actually seems awesome but way too creepy for me right now. But for sure one day!

3. Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn

Also in my ‘maybe pile’ and this one is a creepy children’s book! It actually seems interesting but for now I don’t intend to buy it… Although the synopsis looks actually very nice!

4. Ashwood  by C.J. Malarsky

This book has a freaky cover!! It’s totally new and it seems awesomely creepy! I would love to read this one one day!! Totally check the synopsis! It seems so different!

5. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

This one is a graphic novel! Okay… this I don’t think I will ever buy. I love Sabrina the Teenage Witch too much to change my opinion reading a horror type of it. Unless someone really tells me I should read it. Should I?

Did you guys like this TAG?? Recommend me some books for halloween!

HP: What House are you in?

Hogwarts-lake

Harry Potter has been a BIG part of many lives, including mine, so because of that I decided to do a post talking about Harry Potter and the four Houses, since I just recently found the test to do!!

Harry Potter was literally my childhood, I loved it, and I still do, and I will NEVER stop loving it! The books are amazing, the movies are amazing, the world is amazingly awesome and the characters are to die for. It’s just impossible to not love HP right?

So I always wanted to be everything when I was little, be in Gryffindor with Hermione, go catch nargles with Luna in Ravenclaw, be a bad ass Slytherin or be an honest and loyal Hufflepuff.

So just recently I finally found a test to see what house I belong to, just like the sorting hat and I got super excited!!

  • If you want to do the test click here to go to the Pottermore website or do a quiz here at buzzfeed. You can also do an account in the Pottermore website and see your house, wand and so on.

According to the test, I’m 50% Gryffindor …

gryffindor.gif
… and 50% Ravenclaw. 

I’m not surprised I’m not Slytherin, but to be 50/50 of something, THAT I was totally not expecting, I can’t say I am not happy, because I love both, but It’s again difficult to chose in between one for me 😛 But I feel that I am a bit more Ravenclaw than Gryffindor maybe??

Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share with you all some fun facts about each of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Also you can check the HarryPotterWiki for more information about EVERYTHING you wanna know!!

 

These are the four houses for those who don’t know: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.

But have one thing in mind, every house is special and no matter what house you belong to, one thing we all have in common – our love for the Harry Potter series and the magical world that J.K. Rowling created. And if you haven’t read the series yet, what are you waiting for?! Don’t be a Muggle!
