Hello!

It is time for the second life lesson from the Walt Disney Animated Studios and this week’s film is Pinocchio.

WDAS Life Lessons – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Whether you are a fan of Disney or not, you cannot deny that it teaches us a thing or two. It makes us think. It makes us value our choices. It gives us a positivity boost when we are feeling low.

5 Unfinished Series.

My reading habits often throw me into deep water. As a fantasy, sci-fi and historical fiction reader, the vast majority of my books are series and I can’t always binge read them in one go. I’m always swapping and changing them around, or throwing the odd standalone in the mix to shake things up a bit. However, it means I don’t always finish a full series. I will have every intention of finishing it, but I just don’t do it.
