Flicks

Because I speak in movie quotes allllll the time!!
I have opted to add a movie section to my book blog for a few reasons. I watch a lot of movies being first and foremost.

Also because, like books, movies tell fantastic tales full of interesting and infuriating characters. And finally because some if not most of my favorite books become films.

I probably wont review many movies, unless I run into something exceptional and surprising. Something that sticks with me. In the meantime, I will simply enjoy having an expanded area to record my love of story.
