Hi, my name’s Bella! I have always been in love with books that take me to another world. Since I was little, I’ve been in love with fantasy books like Percy Jackson and Harry Potter. But, I also LOVE classics like Little Women and Pride and Prejudice (though, I absolutely hate Huckleberry Finn). Honestly, I will read anything you give me; historical fiction (The Boy On The Wooden Box), young adult (Eleanor and Park), thrillers (This Darkness Mine), romances (Call Me By Your Name), and many more.
Some of my favorite books are:
- The Outsiders (S.E. Hinton)
- Call Me By Your Name (Luca Guadagnino)
- If I Was Your Girl (Meredith Russo)
- Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)
- The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (Douglass Adams)
When it comes to movies, I’m a little more complicated. I tend to love every single movie I watch—except for Adam Sandler movies. I’m a sucker for the “big three” as I call them (Star Wars, Marvel, Pirates of the Caribbean), but in general I love movies that make me feel something, take me to another place, or leave me thinking about them for days. Movies like Beautiful Boy, that made me cry multiple times. Any Disney movie I’ve ever watched, especially the animated ones. Movies like Midsommar that left me with a weird feeling in my stomach but were so beautifully made. Movies like Knives Out, that were so good I watched it more times than I’d like to admit. Movies like Little Women that will never go out of style.
Some of my favorite movies are:
- Little Women (Dir. Greta Gerwig)
- Knives Out (Dir. Rian Johnson)
- Lady Bird (Dir. Greta Gerwig)
- Inglorious Basterds (Dir. Quentin Tarantino)
- La La Land (Dir. Damien Chazelle)
There are so many more books and movies that I couldn’t fit on these lists! You can check out my GoodReads (just under “Isabella”) for more books, and my Letterboxd account (bellafloyd) for more movies!
