Beauty and the Beast

I finally went to see the live-action of Beauty and the Beast. Now, if anyone knows anything about me it’s that a) I love Disney, and Beauty and the Beast is my all-time favourite fairy tale; and b) I am actually not a huge fan of all these remakes of my childhood dreams.

What Would Nancy Drew Do?

I have been a fan of Nancy Drew since I was a kid and I read my first case of hers The Mystery at Lilac Inn.I was hooked ever since, and since that first iconic yellow hardcover, I’ve seen many iterations of Nancy Drew through the years, from various book versions to the small and big screens, and even to a beloved video game franchise.
