Ok, so I have shared the 10 books that are on my “Reading List” and here is the promised posts about the films that I plan to see in the near future aka during the holidays,  when I have time.

Please note that these are not Christmas or festive related. And no, I don’t have a habit of  re-watching the same movies over, and over again during the holiday season.

But before we start, I’d like to mention my Pinterest profile, since I have a board dedicated to films.
