Movie: Hotel Transylvania 2

Hotel Transylvania 2

Halloween is coming and I'm sure some of you will like to enjoy this cute and fun movie! I remember watching the first Hotel Transylvania at tv and really enjoyed it, so when I heard there was a second movie I got really excited.

It didn't disappoint me! This time Mavis and Jonathan get married and have the cutest son Dennys. Dennys is perfect but he seems to be human, not a vampire, and being a little human living in a hotel full of monsters can be very dangerous. So his parents plan to move to California for him to have a normal human childhood but his grandfather Dracula can't accept they move away and is going to do everything for his grandson to release the vampire that must be inside him.

Hotel Transylvania 2 was fun and sweet, everybody was laughing and overall we had a great time. Totally recommended for a not-so-scary Halloween.

Comics Review: Deep Dark Fears by Fran Krause

Deep Dark Fears by Fran Krause

Deep Dark Fears by Fran Krause
Expected publication: September 29th 2015 by Ten Speed Press
A charmingly creepy collection of 100 illustrated comics based on idiosyncratic and universal "deep dark fears."
We all have weird fears, from getting sliced to ribbons in subway station revolving gate to getting turned around by the wind while swimming and going too far out to sea. Based on the wildly popular eponymous Tumblr, Deep Dark Fears explores our odd, creepy, and hilariously singular fears. Animator, illustrator, and cartoonist Fran Krause brings these fears to life in vividly illustrated comics based on real fears submitted by readers (plus a few of his own). These "deep dark fears" run the gamut from unlikely but plausible to completely ridiculous, highlighting both our deeply human similarities and our peculiar uniquenesses.
Most of us have fears, believe it or not. Reading this book I realize I'm not the only one that have weird thoughts and stupid fears, but I must say most of these were new to me...some fears were ridiculous, others disgusting and some really scary. 

Deep Dark Fears isn't your typical book. It was peculiar and sometimes weird, but it was interesting to see so many fears illustrated. I read it in just a couple of minutes but it was worth it to spend some time seeing the details in the illustrations.  Apparently this book is a compilation of the illustrations by Fran Krause, who posted them on Tumblr. I didn't know about that so it was new to me, but it kind of left me at peace with my own fears, and thinking that maybe I'm not so crazy as I thought haha.

It was an enjoyable short book, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes illustrations and wants to read something different and original.

#Bloggiesta Update!

I was a total failure at Bloggiesta this time....but I have a reason! My mom got really sick and was at the hospital for a few days. We got really worried and scared, but she's slowly getting better.

Honestly, I didn't have time to even open my laptop and I wanted to be by her side the whole day. I think I only managed to clean my side bar before she got sick.... Anyway, I decided to keep my to-do list for next Bloggiesta and hopefully I'll do better :)

How was your Bloggiesta? Did you complete all your tasks?
