Introducing: Movie Musical Challenge 2017

Last Year I participated in Bookish Whimsy Movie Musical Challenge. This year I’ve decided to do another Movie Musical Challenge 2017. This time the 25 AFI’s Greatest Musicals of all Times!The Challenge is 25 Musicals in 12 months. Which should be really easy. Fingers crossed. Some of these I have already seen. But in honour of the challenge I am watching them ALL OVER AGAIN. Fingers crossed that this year I can watch a whole load of musicals. The Plan: I’m not going to watch these movies in any particular order, but each one I watch I will review. The plan is to watch at least two a month. Warp up in December where I will reorder the top 25 into my own list of top 25.   The AFI’s Top 25 Movie Musical List: Singin’ in the Rain (1952) West Side Story (1961) The Wizard of Oz (1939) The Sound of Music (1965) Cabaret (1972) Mary Poppins (1964) A Star Is Born (1954) My Fair Lady (1964) An American in Paris (1951) Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) The […]

Random Thoughts: My Bookish Resolutions for 2017

So you must be sick of bookish resolutions for 2017. Everyone has posted their year goals already. but just because it is no longer the new year doesn’t mean that resolution cannot be made. And as normally new year resolutions are ditched within the first two weeks of them being made, I thought now would be the perfect time to list my bookish resolutions for 2017. And that is what I am now doing.   Last year I set myself six little resolutions. Some of them I achieved. Others I failed miserably. This year I hope to achieve all my goals, but we will find out at the end of the year. So my goals this year are: To actually complete a challenge I set myself Last year I set the task of completing a bookish challenge. I failed. This year I just want to complete one challenge. It doesn’t have to be bookish. I can be anything. And seeing as I be announcing a couple of challenges soon this goal should be achievable. This year at least. Reduce the […]

Random Thoughts: Looking back at 2016 Resolutions

Last year I set myself six little goals, six resolutions to help me read and blog better. And now is the time to look back at 2016 Resolutions. Some of my goals I achieved others I failed at. But looking back I’m really happy with what I achieved and hopefully this will push me to do even better in 2017 So my goals in 2016 were: To complete the reading challenges I set myself. This was a challenge I failed. Again I didn’t complete a challenge but this gave me an opportunity to try new things so in that sense it was a success. To comment on other blogs. I definitely succeeded in this challenge. Sometime I struggle to know what to say but as the year progressed I felt I got a lot more comfortable sharing my opinion. Reduce the amount of ARC’s / Netgalley books I have to read. I don’t think I succeeded in this goal, there are still a huge pile of books to read, but I have definitely become a lot more selective in what I will […]

Monthly Round-Up! December 2016

Let me know if you achieved any of your goals that you set yourself this year! Currently Reading:   Reviews:   Blog Tours:   Through the Letterbox:   Challenges: This year I am participating in the movie musical challenge hosted by Bookish Whimsy.  This month I tried to finish this challenge and while I watched all the musicals. I didn’t have a chance to finish them. So I watched and reviewed West Side Story,  Chicago , Singin’ in the Rain and White Christmas. As per usual I participated in the Goodreads Challenge. I didn’t reach my target of 100 books. Instead reaching 89. Which I think is still a good effort So what do you think of my round-up December 2016? What have you read this month?
