Love…loveMary F. Pearson’s books. Looking forward to reading Dance of Thieves. Kiss of Deception was one of my favorite books top 10 list.

Excited about the new Mulan live action.

I was worried at first about the changes from one of my favorite Disney Princess movies (I love them all) but I like the ideas and changes for the new movie.   Changing the love interest doesn’t change the story and the evil witch idea fits the favorite underlying themes of our other favorite princesses.  The only sadness is the absence of Mushu!
