In this book, we pick up some time after the events of the first Descendants movie.

Review: The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz

Hello, my evil friends,

          Here it finally is my review for the first book in the Descendants series The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz. The first part of this review is going to be spoiler free then I will go into spoilers. Do not worry I will let you know when that is about to happen. Now on to the review.

    Some of you might be asking what is The Isle of the Lost about. Well, In this world there are two places one is Auradon where all the heroes of all the Disney movies live. The other place is the Isle of the Lost where you guessed it, all the Disney villains live. On the Isle of the Lost, all the villains and their children live under a dome that keeps them trapped on the Isle. With this dome, it keeps the villains in so they are unable to harm the heroes. This story is about Mal daughter of Maleficent, Evie daughter of the Evil Queen, Jay the son of Jafar, and Carlos the son of Curella De Vil. These four villain kids set off on a mission to retrieve Maleficent’s Dragan’s eye. They all have their own reasons for taking on this mission but will they be able to accomplish their goals?

1) Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodgefullsizerender-jpg

      I started Cruel Beauty in January and was able to finish it in February. This book was okay. There were a lot of times while reading, that I really did not know what was happening. If certain things were explained more I feel that this book would have been a four or five-star book. Continue reading “February Summary and Coming up in March”

Beauty and the Beast Trailer Review

On January 30th, 2017 the latest trailer for the Beaty and the Beast live-action movie dropped. Wow, this newest trailer has gotten me even more excited for the movie to be released on March 17th. I talk in detail about the trailer so if you want to watch it first then come back and read the review here is the link –> BATB Trailer

My thoughts:

I really like how just from the trailer you can see that they are keeping a lot of the scenes that are in the animated film. For example: when Belle is fighting the wolfs with the stick, when Chip blows bubbles in the tea, and when Beast and Belle sip from the bowls. As well as keeping a lot of the scenes from the animated film they have added a lot of new as well. I really liked how they explain to Belle about the curse. In the animated film all she knows is that the castle is enchanted, Belle does not know all the details about the curse.They also explain how Belle got the Continue reading “Beauty and the Beast Trailer Review”

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”
