Today I’m back with another Toria’s Top Ten post! This one is probably going to be one of the hardest blog posts I’ve written (totally kidding …but kind of not)! I’m going to be sharing with you my ten favourite movies of all time. For me, this is so hard because there are so many movies that I love! It’s so hard to pick just ten! But, I thought long and hard about this and I’m pretty happy with my choices, so here are my top 10 favourite movies!
