Melissa Baldwin visited us in April to talk about her first two novels. She's back today to feature her third novel, See You Soon Broadway, by talking about her favorite Broadway musicals! She also has a $25 Amazon gift card for a lucky reader anywhere in the world! You could buy this book AND a Broadway soundtrack if you wanted...
(When Melissa A saw the title of this novel, she knew we had to feature the book in this way. In fact, she's listening to the Hamilton cast recording--which is phenomenal, by the way--while preparing this post.)

In honor of my newly released novel, See You Soon Broadway, I would like to share my Top Five favorite Broadway shows. This was harder than I thought…
1.) Annie- Yes, I know this is old school but I have loved this show since I was a little girl and watched it with my grandma. I have since introduced it to my daughter and she is now as obsessed as I was. :)
2.) Mamma Mia- Every time I hear "Dancing Queen," I feel the need to break out into dance (but who doesn’t? :)). I absolutely love this show. The music, the location, the fun, everything about it brings a smile to my face.
3.) Wicked- This show definitely lived up to all the hype. The soundtrack is fantastic and it is my go to music while I’m cleaning my house.
4.) Rent- Ok, so I know this one is kind of depressing but again the music is fantastic and that’s why we are supposed to love musicals, right? (At least it’s not as depressing as Les Miserables.)
5.) The Phantom of Opera- Classic! I think I adore this one so much because it was my grandma’s favorite. The haunting music still gives me chills.
Honorable Mentions: As I said this was harder than I thought so I have to give a shout out to a few more! The Sound of Music, Jersey Boys, and The Lion King.
I have to stop now or the list will go on! :)
