My Halloween Extravaganza

So here’s the thing. I’m not a scary movie person but every year around Halloween time I like to watch horror films to mark the occasion. For me, this was the best horror movie session yet because I just so happened to watch six, yes seven! horror movies this week. Albeit most of them were vampire movies, which aren’t that scary at all, but still, I’m proud of myself. So, I’m sharing my experience with you. Enjoy!

Monday

I already shared a post I wrote detailing my experience watching these two films Monday night. Bram Stoker’s Dracula is the ultra-romantic (and dramatic) Dracula film, treating the title character as a victim of love whose dark mission to find his long-lost true love is quite something. The thing I liked about it the most is the attention to his background story to fully understand why he was Dracula in the first place and learning that he can transform into so many different things which is pretty creepy.

And then there was The Lost Boys which was just plain fun! It was hilarious, surprisingly riveting, and simply one of those old 80s’ movies that you end up loving out of nowhere.

Well, this is a duh moment. Independence Day is a 90s’ classic starring Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum in a science-fiction action-packed blockbuster that has stood the test of time. If you’re coming in from the sweltering summer heat to watch a fun movie with the family this is one to turn on. Continue reading 5 Movies To Watch this Independence Day

Here are Six Fantastic Christmas Books To Give Your Children for the Holidays

Christmas. It’s, for children, the best holiday of the year. It’s the time of the year when the mysterious Santas Claus grants children’s wishes (as long as they have been nice rather than naughty) and gives them gifts beneath the dazzling, mesmerizing Christmas tree.

These gifts come in all shapes and sizes. Of course, some of those gifts children want are new toys but I’ve personally learned there’s another gift that can sometimes be more special than any toy and that is a book.

As a child, along with other gifts, my parents would give us books for Christmas (namely Geronimo Stilton books) and it was the best! My sister and I would read those books over and over, marveling at the adventures Geronimo Stilton and his friends embarked upon.

So yes, along with the toys, games, or cute clothes you may give your children this Christmas there should definitely be a new book for them to enjoy mixed in with all of the gifts. Continue reading Here are Six Fantastic Christmas Books To Give Your Children for the Holidays
