Book Review: Luke Jennings – Die For Me (Killing Eve book 3)

The saga which inspired one of the most talked-about TV shows of all time appears to have come to its' conclusion - and I don't know whether to be disappointed or thankful.

Album Review: Paloma Faith – Infinite Things (2020)

I could have written a retrospective review of 'Hypersonic Missiles' - next week marks one week since … Continue reading ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ is the perfect album for 2020 – here’s why it has made such an impact on me
