The Greatest Showman Book Tag!

Hi everyone!

This tag was created by Irish Reader and after I saw a book tag related to The Greatest Showman of course I HAD to do it!

This film is 100% one of the best films I have EVER seen, and could even be the top of my list – it was everything and I am OBSESSED! I’ve seen it 3 times so far, pre-ordered the DVD as soon as I first saw it, and haven’t stopped listening to the soundtrack yet. I’m in deep guys!

I even made my own question headers for this tag, that’s how dedicated I am! (I am super proud of them though!).

Anyway, let’s get to it!
