I have also decided to take on the task of doing movie reviews every now and again, mostly  for those movies that have been adapted from a book in one form or another. Should be fun! I wouldn't mind any other recommendations for challenges and other things to add to my Reading Resolution, so don't be shy! Well, I hope you enjoy my upcoming journey & I wish you all, all the luck in yours. Have a safe and happy New Year!
