10 DIFFERENT BUT GOOD MOVIES TO WATCH THIS FALL

 


Hello guys. Fall is here and it means (or at least for me) it's time for books and movies. I really enjoying both this September. 
Also I won subscription for movie service subscription recently so I love discovering new movies (especially if my favorite actors in them). This month I try to watch new things as much as I have time and desire for, because I decided that in October before Halloween I will have a marathon of my favorite cosy movies (especially with autumn festive themes).
So here is list of movies I recommend. Half of them I watched recently and couple others I watched a few months ago and they were really good.

Knives out

The circumstances surrounding the death of crime novelist Harlan Thrombey are mysterious, but there's one thing that renowned Detective Benoit Blanc knows for sure -- everyone in the wildly dysfunctional Thrombey family is a suspect. Now, Blanc must sift through a web of lies and red herrings to uncover the truth.

 I feel pretty

An ordinary woman who struggles with feelings of insecurity and inadequacy on a daily basis wakes from a fall believing she is suddenly the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. With this newfound confidence, she is empowered to live her life fearlessly and flawlessly, but what will happen when she realizes her appearance never changed?

Nightmare on elm street

You know the plot LOL. It was my first time watching this classic. I watched first 3 movies.

Stand by me

The Thing Called Love

Miranda, an aspiring musician, relocates to Nashville to pursue her dream. Complications arise when two of her new friends end up falling in love with her. Will Miranda choose love over her dreams?

Ruby Sparks

In order to overcome a writer's block, Calvin dreams up his ideal woman and begins to create her on paper. When she turns into a reality, all he has to do is write away the chinks of his relationship.

Practical Magic

Books I want to read this autumn

 


Hello! My monthly post is here LOL. I should challenge myself with Blogtober and to write every day. Definitely!
Ain't weird how it's already autumn (in my country fall starts since September 1st, what's about your country?). Definitely, it was faster than the last year, but some people who were reading my blog in the previous year know that 2019 was the hardest year ever for me so some moments felt incredibly long.
It's really weird that the last years Halloween feels like it was 2 months ago but coronavirus feels like it's been for 3 years. Can somebody relate or is it just my feelings?

As fall came I have a mood for 2 things - books and blogging, and this post is literally a mix of these two so here we are...
I have more than 30 books in my book wish list, but I can't find all their covers on the internet, so here is the top 9. I doubt I will read 9 books as I'm a kinda slow reader and I doubt it will be only these books... Like right now I'm reading an absolutely different book and I want to finish reading another HP book, also I almost finished a book about a language I'm learning. Some books I have on my virtual shelf for years, but I always find some books I want to read ASAP, and these books stay ''untouched''. So I definitely want to read at least one of them.
But here is list of books you can find interesting and maybe you will want to read this as well.

Midnight Sun STEPHANIE MEYER. Midnight Sun is a 2020 companion novel to the 2005 book Twilight by author Stephenie Meyer. The work retells the events of Twilight from the perspective of Edward Cullen instead of that of the series' usual narrating character Bella Swan
Needful Things STEPHEN KING. It is the first novel King wrote after his rehabilitation from drug and alcohol addiction. The story is about a shopkeeper who runs his business by exchanging goods for money and mysterious deeds performed by the customer.

The boy who climbed into the moon DAVID ALMOND.  The story about a boy, Paul, who wants to touch the sky; he then climbs a ladder to the Moon and goes inside. 

Naive. Super. ERLEND LOE. Troubled by an inability to find any meaning in his life, the twenty-five-year-old narrator of this deceptively simple novel quits university and eventually arrives at his brother's New York apartment.
In a bid to discover what life is all about, he writes lists. He becomes obsessed by time and whether it actually matters. He faxes his meteorologist friend. He endlessly bounces a ball against the wall. He befriends a small boy who lives next door.
He yearns to get to the bottom of life and how best to live it.

How to Get to Great Ideas: A System for Smart, Extraordinary Thinking DAVE BIRSS Written by the former Creative Director of OgilvyOne, Dave Birss. this book offers a brilliant new system for conceiving original and valuable ideas. It looks at how to frame the problem, how to push your thinking, how to sell the idea and build support for it, and how to inspire others to have great ideas.

Outsider STEPHEN KING. An eleven-year-old boy’s violated corpse is found in a town park. Eyewitnesses and fingerprints point unmistakably to one of Flint City’s most popular citizens.

The shining STEPHEN KING. Jack Torrance's new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he'll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote...and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

The house of broken angels LUIS ALBERTO URREA. A  vivid portrait of one Mexican-American family in San Diego and the complexities of immigration and heritage.

Any book of Jenny Colgan.

Things I still didn't learn in my early twenties 🎂 (very random)

Last three days of summer (at least here in my country) and it's been 3 weeks after my 24 birthday.  This post I was planning to post before my birthday but I was busy with preparing then with celebrating. This birthday was awesome and I thought I could write this post just after it but I got sick for weeks so here were are...
By the way, it supposed to be a post about things I learnt in my early twenties. But this kind of posts is hard to write. Because it's not really that I learnt these things in this exact year if it makes sense. Recent two years were the hardest in my life. Well, all early twenties were hard so far. 
Though I don't know if I still in the early twenties or already in middle twenties. There are some debates on the Internet about age 24. I even have read an article on Vogue official site that in our time a human of 24 can be considered as a teenager. Makes me feel less as a late bloomer, because I still don't know too many things.


  • How to make friends and other relationships when you're not a kid anymore.
  • How to get a job if you need to have the experience to get a job but where to get this experience? Awkward.
  • How people have well-brushed looking hair for the whole day. This effect stays only for 5 minutes on my hair. I'm not kidding.
  • Why I keep gaining weight even when I stop eating sweet and fast food. Whyyyyyy....lol.
  • Why do people always ask when a human will marry, will have a child, another child. The ask like it will change something in their lives too.
  • Why many people think that we change with our birthday like in The Sims. I keep getting comments (in real life) on how I look like younger but to be honest, a few years ago I looked the same.
  • How people could cook without the internet. I check the recipe too many times while cooking something.
  • How people learnt to draw super realistically.  They are so talented and hard-working.
  • How some bloggers post every day for years and don't miss any day. The thing I could never...
  •  Finances I know nothing. How to invest (my first investing a few years was fail and I lost the money I was earning for 6 months), banking, trading, saving, taxes. I know nothing, to be honest.
  • I still didn't learn what to do with plants so they could live more than 2 months after purchase.
  • How to have pretty handwriting. I was training recent days but my handwriting still quite bad.
  • How to talk on the phone with a stranger and not to sound a child that talks with a monster under her bed.
  • Self-esteem. How to feel okay with your million of imperfection. To be honest,I felt pretty okay but recent since I got braces I stopped liking my face, the only thing I liked before in my body. So now working on self-love is probably the most important thing I'm working on.
