I got/stole this great idea from Ayunda @ Tea & Paperbacks. She only did 7 movies, but I’m gonna go ahead and do 12, one for each month of the year. 🙂
They all may have not come out this year, but I watched them for the first time this year and LOVED them! Don’t be shocked and appalled because you don’t see Mockingjay Part 2 on this list.

In the beginning of the year I was watching movies, left and right. But as the year when on, my movie watching slowed down. I tried to watch a different movie at least twice a week on Netflix. I’m hoping to start this up again in 2016, but I also want to read more…So we’ll see how that goes. I hope you enjoyed this post.
Until next time,

Aw I feel so honored to have my idea stolen by you ❤ Lovely list! I really enjoyed Laggies as well, and I haven't watched What If but I really really want to! 😀
So many great movies on that list! I absolutely adored Two Night Stand, About Alex, The Pretty One, What If and Laggies. Did you ever watch In Your Eyes with Zoe Kazan? I can only recommend it!!
YES! I forgot about In Your Eyes. I really loved that one too! I seemed to be on a Zoe Kazan kick this year. I love her! 😀
I totally get it! I think she’s really great.
Wow I don’t think I’ve heard of any of these. I must be so behind in movies lol.
I wanted to watch “Laggies” a few month ago but it never happenned (OK, I have to admit I didn’t do anything for it. But, well… Maybe someday!) In French, the movie is untitled “Girls only”. I don’t get the point with all these name changes: what’s the matter?! When I saw the movie poster at the beginning of your article and “Laggies” I was like “Whaaaaaaaaaat?!” XD
Need to watch more movies in 2016! **
I know! When I first saw the title as Say When, but then in America is Laggies…What is a Laggie!?
I don’t even know! I’m completely lost in all of that!
I haven’t even heard of any of these movies. WOW I will have to check them out for something different to watch.
Great idea! I’ve been looking for great indie movies, and will definitely check these out! 🙂
