The Kind Worth Killing – Paul Swanson (4 stars)

The Kind Worth Killing was a chance read for me. Having picked it up in a charity shop whilst browsing, I was forced to buy it by a friend that spotted me and wouldn’t let me return it to the shelf. All I can say is I’m glad she insisted; this was one of the most thrilling books I’ve read in a very long time. Continue reading The Kind Worth Killing – Paul Swanson (4 stars)

Beauty and the Beast (*****)

Hi all!

So this weekend I finally¬†got round to watching Beauty and the Beast at the pictures. Firstly, let me explain the significance of this film in my life.

So, as usual for every new show I see, it’s time for a review! Continue reading The Bodyguard (*****)

Titanic – The Musical (*****)

Hey fellow theatre-goers!

Three days ago I went to see Titanic: The Musical. Yes, an actual musical about the titanic. I’ll be honest, when I booked my tickets I had my concerns about the show and whether it would just be the romanticised Leo and Kate story that was released in cinemas 19 years ago, but the production was so much more than that story, and actually told a touching, heart wrenching tale of the real life people who lived and died on the maiden voyage.
