Films That Remind Me of Autumn

Films That Remind Me of Autumn

Now that the darker nights are here, it feels like the right time of year to get all cosy with blankets and hot chocolates whilst having a film marathon. Even on days off I tend to love the plan of settling down at home and just watching films, but for me there are certain films that instantly remind me of Autumn. I would say that a lot of Autumn themed films are usually based around Halloween films, and whilst those are perfect to watch at the moment (Hocus Pocus would be highly recommended) there are also some less obvious films that for me kind of feel autumnal. These are some of the films that remind me of Autumn.

Recent Reads #2

Recent Reads #2

Reading has taken a bit of a back seat this past month and instead of being up late reading a book, I've been up watching Netflix. However I did manage to read some books despite some of them being ones I had previously read. So I thought I would share them with you.

P.S. I Love You // Cecelia Ahern
I have mentioned the film adaptation of this book in a films that make me cry post and the book isn't any different. The story follows a married couple Holly and Gerry who I would guess like most married couples argue over stupid things but are very much in love with each other. It follows Holly's journey of dealing with the sudden death of her husband Gerry and her making a new life for herself without him. But before he died Gerry created a plan to write letters for Holly to help her along the way for a little while, which she can read each month. Without spoiling anything it is a beautifully written story which kind of hits you hard in the chest as a reader, because you can in some way relate to how lost and alone Holly must be feeling without Gerry in her life.  In terms of how similar the book and film are, they pretty much follow the same storyline, however some characters are added and some taken out. The one difference is in the book Holly receives all of her letters from Gerry in one package which she is to open once a month, but in the film they are delivered to her in numerous ways over a period of time. I love the film but I think throughout reading the book, you can put yourself in Holly's position so it makes it feel a little more like you are going on this journey with her.
