Oh My Fairytales: As Old as Time by Liz Braswell

Hello there!

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.

Words I Learned from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast

Hello there,

    As part of my countdown to Beauty and the Beast movie, I am going to discuss the words I learned from the 1991 movie Beauty and the Beast. What I mean by this is English words that as a child I most diffidently did not know what they meant. Now on to the words! ( After adding all the pictures in I realized that a lot of the words revolve around Gaston. Interesting.) 

    primeval

1)  Primeval: adj: of or relating to the first age or ages, especially of the world.

Line: Belle: Gaston you are positively primeval.   

Gaston: Why thank you, Belle.

-Um Gaston that is not a compliment lol Continue reading “Words I Learned from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”
