So, last year when Pretty Little Liars ended I did a blog post about what I loved about the show and saying goodbye. I thought that since Once Upon a Time ended this past Friday I should do the same with Once Upon a Time.
I remember when I first heard about the show. I was at the movie theater about to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2. They played the tailor for Once Upon a Time before the movie previews. I love Disney and fairy tales so when I watched the trailer I knew that I had to watch the show when I premiered on October 23, 2011. Once I watched the premiere I knew that this show will be something I will absolutely love. Continue reading “And They Lived Happily Ever After : Goodbye to Once Upon a Time”
I received an ebook of What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie from Black Rose Writing and this post will be my spoiler free review. Hope you enjoy.
“Millington Valley is a quintessential small Pennsylvania town: families go back generations. Football rules. Kids drink while adults look the other way. High school is a whirlwind of aspiration and rivalry, friendship and jealousy.
When smart and pretty Molly Hanover moves to town and attracts the attention of the football team’s hero, Wade Thornton—a nice guy with a bad drinking habit—longtime friendships are threatened and a popular cheerleader tries to turn the school against Molly.
The young couple’s future is shattered when Wade, drunk, wrecks his truck and Molly is thrown through the windshield. She wakes from a coma to find her beauty marred and her memory full of holes. As she struggles to heal, she becomes sure that something terrible happened before the accident. And there is somebody in the valley who doesn’t want her to remember.” Continue reading “Review: What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie”
This is going to be a fun and simple post. I had a few holds at the Libary and I picked them up a few days ago so I will share with you what those books are.
1. Reflection: A Twisted Tale by Elizabeth Lim
This is the fourth book in the Twisted Tales series that follows the story of Mulan. In this story, Mulan has to travel to the underworld to save Shang after he gets injured. Oh, and Mulan is still undercover as Ping!
I love reading these twisted tales books and I can’t wait to get to this one.

This post is going to be on my thoughts of As Old as Time: A Twisted Tale by Liz Braswell. The A Twisted Tale series takes the Disney movies that we love and adds a twist to it to make it different. In this book it Liz Braswell retells the story of Beauty and the Beast and asks the question ” What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?”. I have been wanting to read this book ever since it came out in 2016! Finally, I got my hands on a copy and I will tell you what I thought about this new tale as old as time.
I will start off by saying that Beauty and the Beast (1991) is my favorite movie. Not my favorite Disney movie, not my favorite animated film but my favorite movie period. I have read a few Beauty and the Beast retellings and I have not found one that I have absolutely loved. I think I have such high standards that I haven’t found a Beauty and the Beast retelling that just blew me away. That being said As Old as time came pretty close to it but it ended up not being what I hoped it would be. Continue reading “Oh My Fairytales: As Old as Time by Liz Braswell”
