Books and movies to put you in an Autumn mood || BLOGVEMBER DAY 7

Hello cutecumbers, and welcome to blogvember day 7! Phew! It's already been a week! I am loving the posts so far, and I hope you are too. I have many more posts in my planner for blogvember, and I look forward to sharing them all with you!
Now, onto the topic... Books and movies. I am a huge nerd, like... I get so invested in a story that sometimes it can keep me trapped for days. If a book or a movie has a great story, it can influence my mood for quite a long time. Which got me thinking "what books had put me in autumn mood?" I think there's a lot of you who function in the same way as I do, and so I created a list of all these great autumn reads/movies for you guys! If this sparks up your interest then just keep on reading:

First, let's start with books:
  • Harry Potter series. (J.K.Rowling)
    Everybody and their mothers would know this series would be on an Autumn reading list. A book about friends, magic, death, overcoming problems, set in both Autumn and Winter? Bring it on, yeah! I read Harry Potter so many times that I believe I even know some parts by heart. Yes, I am that obsessed. This is why every fall I reread the whole series, and this is why I am starting this list with it. If you haven't already read it, I strongly suggest you do!


  • Gone Girl. (Gillian Flynn)
    Many of you probably saw the movie, with Ben Affleck? Yeah, well as much as the movie is good... I still can't stand that guy in any movie. It's just my own thing. But yeah, the movie is good... But the book...  Oh... The book... It's so much better. Nick Dunne is married, and suddenly his wife goes missing. He keeps finding clues from her, which he believes she left on purpose, while trying to explain to the police that he had nothing to do with her disappearance. There is a huge plot twist, and I will not spoil the story for you if you haven't heard about the story. But trust me on something- the book has so much more details from both his and her perspective, and the thriller is perfect for curling up on a rainy day.

  • Fangirl. (Rainbow Rowell)
    Many books from Rainbow Rowell are a perfect read for Autumn, but Fangirl is definitely my favorite! I have reread it a few times and the story is so cute yet not perfect (she is clumsy. her appearance is not perfect, there are normal situations in a book, or the book is not staged). Our main character is Cath, a girl who is obsessed with Simon Snow fandom. She reads the books, hangs out on forums, she writes fanfiction about it. She also has a twin sister Wren. The story begins with them going to college, and while Cath wanted to stay close to her sister, Wren wanted to "explore other people" . We follow Cath's adventures in college, without her sister holding her hand. Will she be able to do it? The book is perfect to read outside on a nice, sunny Autumn day with a cup of coffee in your hand! If you haven't read it, check it out!


  • Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe. (B.A. Saenz)
    Okay... This book is everything. This book is something I read all year round, don't get me wrong but for Autumn it's pure PERFECTION. The overall feel of the book, the sadness of the main character, the sentences, the beautiful words! Ugh, it's just... Perfection. Aristotle is a an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it all who sees the world in an unusual way. Once they meet, they provide different outlooks for each other. At first it seems they have nothing in common, but once they spend more time together they bond in an unusual way. Facing many internal problems, they discover the biggest secret in their universe and what they want to be and what they actually are. I strongly recommend picking up this book, especially since we might get a sequel in 2018! Pick the book up and give it a read, trust me that you won't regret it!

On to the movies: 
  • The Breakfast Club. 
    This movie has a great feel to it. I love the aesthetic in it, I love that cliche '' everyone is not always how they seem" and I usually watch it every Autumn. It just puts me into such a great mood about life, about people and things around me.
    5 people get into detention, and supervised by their power hungry principal, they try to make it as easy as they can. They usually wouldn't hang out, as they come from different social groups- you have a jock, a rebel, a brainiac, a princess, and emo chick. Each tell their own stories, and show the others how life isn't easy to either of them. Give it a watch, if you haven't already!

  • You've got mail.
    If you enjoy a good rom-com, then you definitely need to check out You've got mail! Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan function so good together, ugh I love seeing movies with the two of them. The base of the story is this- small bookstore owner Kelly is struggling when a big corporate bookshop owner Joe opens a new store right down the street from her own shop. They dislike each other in real life, but when they meet on an anonymous chat, they fall in love- not knowing who they are talking to. But pretty soon, Joe realizes who is the anon girl and he must get over the hate he feels towards her in real life and the cyber love which he started feeling towards Kelly. The story is set in late fall- early winter and progresses all the way to Christmas. So, you can pretty much watch it from end of October until the end of December without it numbing your festive buzz!


  • Hocus Pocus.
    Even though I'm a bit late, this movie is perfect for anyone obsessed with Halloween. But, if you're like myself, you can watch it anytime during the Autumn season. This is the story- after moving to Salem, Max explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani and their new friend Allison. After Allison tells Max a story (Max is very superstitious) he accidentally frees 3 witches who used to live in the house. With the help of a magical cat, the three children must steal their spell book, so that the three witches don't become immortal! The story is cute, there is humor and the overall feel of the movie is perfect for Autumn vibes! Give it a watch!

  • Mermaids.
    If you think that family, even a non-traditional one, is the most important thing in life (like I do) then this movie is perfect for you! The story is simple- 15 year old Charlotte Flax is used to moving often because their quirky mother "feels like it". When they move to a small Massachusetts town, they hope they will stay a bit longer. When Mrs. Flax falls in love with a local shop owner, Charlotte and her younger sister are sure they will stay. But when a scandal happens around the family (Charlotte falls in love with an older man) the family has to go through learning of accepting each other for what they are and learning of functioning together, as a family. This movie always gives me a vibe of my own family ('cept I don't have a sister, I have a younger brother) and the overall movie gives me the perfect Autumn vibe! Check it out, especially if you like Winona Ryder and Cher!

There you have it cutecumbers, a Autumn mood style list of books and movies! If you like posts like these, be sure to let me know! Hit me up on Twitter, IG or down bellow in the comments! Let's be friends, don't be shy!
