The Movie Musicals Challenge

January 4, 2016 Just for Fun, Movies 0

This year, I’ve decided to try a fun challenge that has nothing to do with reading:

The Movie Musical Challenge!

Hit that link to learn more at Bookish Whimsy, the creator/host of the challenge. Basically, the goal is to watch the films on the AFI’s Top 25 Greatest Musicals list over the course of a year.
