A guest post from authors Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor on ten movies that are in the same genre as their book.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks theme is: Movie Freebie This is my first time doing a Top Ten Tuesday but I love a good movie so couldn’t resist, I am splitting my ten down the middle and making two lists, the first is movies that I have enjoyed watching this year and the second is movies I am looking forward to.
