The Tarot Trilogy (Books 1 & 2) by J.D Bretton

Ok, so let's just get this out of the way first, there is a lot of sex!
I mean a lot!
Very detailed, hot, steamy in your face sex. So if you like a more subtle approach to your romance then proceed with caution, if not then enjoy!

Does it need it? I don't think so.
Did it ruin the books for me? No.
I mean look at the success of Fifty Shades of Gray, who am I to say anything.

These stories show a lot of promise, there is a great complicated emotional storyline underneath all the sex.

All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher 

All that she can see is a wonderful magical world, filled with emotion (literally). It's easily relatable and heart warmly good and it really made me want cake!

So the author introduces us to Cherry. Cherry has a gift, she can see people's emotions and they are not pretty (literally). Poor Cherry can see everyone's bad emotion, depression, anger, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, the list goes on, but not only can she see them but they look like monsters too! 

The icing on the cake (sorry) is that Cherry has her own Meddlum to deal with, having had her fair share of heartbreak from a young age (she looses her best friend, her father's) she has her own loneliness to deal with, a lifelong companion.

At first she hides, she embraces her loneliness, it's just them against the world but with a little bit of encouragement and her baking skills, she starts to embrace her gift,  opening up bakery's in different places to help the people who live there, if she can't get rid of her on Meddlum then she is going to help others heal theirs.

That is until she meets Chase, another person, who like her can see emotion but unlike Cherry he can only see happiness which makes him, frustrated, mischevious and cynical. All of which Cherry can see following him about. He definitely does not want to embrace his "gift" that is until he realises he can wind Cherry up!

Now we have 2 rivals, a turf war begins………

The Shield by C.J Bentley (book 1) 

What a lovely story!

I throughly enjoyed this book, it has adventure, history and magic. Perfect for a younger audience but also an easy read for adults.

It's not bogged down in lots of history but enough to keep the story interesting. 

If you are intrigued by the facts, the author has kindly wrote a couple of chapters at the back of the book.

One about the history of York and the other is a little about the English royal family in the time which the book is set. 

I liked this because often I have read fiction/history books and wondered how much of it is true.

Hamlet – Harold Pinter Theatre

I have now been to see this play twice and I am contemplating a third, yes it's that good! 

I can't stop thinking about it!

I can honestly and truly say I think that this is the best bit of theatre I have seen in a long time.

Hamlet is one of Shakespeare's most famous plays, the main role is one that most male actors want to get their teeth into. 

It's a role that Andrew Scott was born to play!

Contrary to popular belief by Neil Anthes 

At the beginning this book reads like a history book, we are back in Ancient Rome, Julius Caesar has just been murdered, we learn of the betrayal, deceit and treason, I was beginning to wonder where the "story" part would start but as I read more into the book, I was finally introduced to Jeshua, our main character whose story and teachings we follow. He is on a spiritual path and questioning the old ways of religion.

Molly Fish by Jack McMasters 

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I received this book but something about it intrigued me, I think it was the hint of danger mixed with what seemed like a too good to be true perfect world created by author Jack McMasters. 

Arthur has been promised 2 weeks of passion by a very beautiful lady, she makes him travel with her to India and he follows, not knowing what to expect or if she would really keep her word.
