Day 14. #30daybloggingchallenge

Post your favourite movies that you never get tired of watching.


I am more of a book person, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good movie. In fact, I’ve watched plenty. However, only some are worth mentioning in this case.

I have watched them more than once. And I could watch them a thousand more times. Is it the actors? The storyline? The plot? I can’t say – but I do love them. You will probably recognise them as they’re famous, but if you don’t, you have to give them a shot. I promise they won’t disappoint.
