Snuggle Up to a Good Movie: A List of My Movie Recommendations

On chilly autumn nights, there is nothing better than to simply snuggle in a blanket and cozy up to a good movie, especially one that you love.  

I don't know if this has ever happened to you, but sometimes, when I am all settled into the couch with my bowl of popcorn, PJs, and fuzzy blanket, I actually can't think of a movie to watch!  If you are ever in this scenario, check out my list of top 10s (okay, sometimes I cheated, but it actually is really hard to narrow down your favorites!) in the following movie genres.  I've organized the movies into the genres that I consider each of them, but some may fit into other genres as well.  The movie titles are in no particular order, but my absolute favorites have *s next to them.

Whether making me laugh, cry, or grip on to the edge of my couch, these movies always make me feel all cozy inside.  I hope that you will enjoy them, too!  Leave me your favorites in the comments below so I can check out some new movie recommendations :)

P.S.  Stay tuned later this month for my Halloween movie recommendations!
