I did like the book, felt that it was perfect for this time, where people think that their secrets are safe on-line, but somehow I felt like I missed the tension. I wasn't really scared, by the end of the novel I just felt a little flat and disappointed, like I hadn't really got the point. 3/5

Still lovely though, the settings, the characters all are more than welcome and I look forward to their return. 2/5

Oh my goodness I am loving this song right now. I saw the live version played on a tv chat show and it was just as good. She does sing like an angel with great power, and not in the Mariah Carey way which makes me grit my teeth. Loving the hipster/boho house too.

I have enjoyed most of Nicky Pellegrinos novels, as she takes us to exotic Italian destinations, that although filled with clichéd characters, full of magical families that I wonder how many tourists would really encounter in t a town full of visitors, she still makes this sea change story enjoyable and sweet. 4/5

Charlize was rocking the bad girl vibe - she was pretty convincing. Not sure about old Tom Hardy. He did wear the leather well, and I liked that he looked scared the first third of the movie. Anyways these guys must have needed a long, long rest after this movie, so much running, fighting, jumping, twisting and so hot and dusty. Phew - it made me tired. 3/5

So we enjoyed this little Spy movie. It was refreshingly funny, really a bit of a send up of all the serious Bond/Statham movies that take themselves a little bit too seriously. There was a bit of swearing in there if you don't like that kind of thing, but we thought Melissa did a fabulous job, and we enjoyed Mirandas part too. I liked that they kept the humour up right to the end too, rather than doing what many films do and fail at of doing funny at the start then serious and boring at the end. Us too middle aged ladies did more laughing than eye rolling - so for that we give it a 4/5.

I was one part loving the book, it was nice to see the relationship develop between Elizabeth and her partner and then I would find myself becoming annoyed with the author, as she belittled the French for not being like Americans. I guess that different cultures tackle things differently, and I was a bit frustrated with her not being open minded and appreciating her new homeland. 3/5

I have been on call the past three days of work, and for me it means I am unable to listen to music to and from work, just in case the call phone rings. Such a shame as I do like my tunes, but the mornings have not been too cold and it has been quiet, so nice to listen to the little birds out early foraging for food.
So day off tomorrow and ready for some music again!! I am enjoying this one, a bit cheesy sweet but the addition of Meghan Trainor gives it some class.
