  • Autumn has started – the leaves are turning brown, rain is coming down from the sky and sweaters are back. On rainy days, there’s nothing I’d rather do than to watch films – preferably chick flicks. Cuddling up, sitting beneath a blanket with a glass of hot tea. Here’s a list of 10 movies to watch in autumn.

    Love this list! What is it about this time of year that makes movies so much more enjoyable?
