From the moment I read the prologue I had high hopes for Candlish’s novel. And to extent those expectations were met… although, not quite in the way I imagined.
This was a gift from my boyfriend this Valentine’s day and I have spent every spare moment I have had since devouring it’s pages.
It’s been far far too long since I had the pleasure of seeing a bit of musical theatre, so needless to say I was hugely excited to see Sister Act at Bradford’s Alhambra theatre this weekend. Especially with the knowledge that the show had been put together by Craig Revel-Horwood and would star Alexandra Burke, who I have long since said is the greatest talent to come from a British TV talent show in my lifetime – Apologies Leona fans. The question was, would the show live up to my expectations?
This collection of short stories was a Christmas gift from an uncle of mine and because I’m a sucker for order and have to make y way alphabetically through my book collection, it was the first thing I started reading once I’d finished Dan Brown’s Inferno in January.
The BBC are well known for exquisite, nail biting dramas. So when the world and his wife told me that Apple Tree Yard was something I should definitely watch, I did so.
As a kid, ‘Finding Nemo’ was one of the funniest films I owned on DVD. In fact, it probably still is one of the funniest. So, like countless others my age, I waited for the release of ‘Finding Dory’ with a kind of eagerness that can only be brought on by nostalgia. Sadly, I didn’t get a chance to see it whilst it was in the cinema, but, now it’s out on DVD wild horses couldn’t have stopped me sitting down to watch it. So, with rather high expectations, I sat down this Saturday and began on a glorious, nostalgic journey.
With a title like ‘Inferno’ you would expect Dan Brown’s most recent novel to set your world alight once you start reading. The big question is, did it?
