BOOKWORM TUESDAY: SWEET REVENGE – THE INTIMATE LIFE OF SIMON COWELL BY TOM BOWER

SWEET REVENGE - THE INTIMATE LIFE OF SIMON COWELL

I had very high expectations for this ‘unofficial biography’ from the very beginning.

It’s not at all … [Read more...]

In case you didn’t already know, the John Boyne novel tells the story of nine-year-old Bruno, the son of a soldier involved in the brutality of the German Holocaust. Oblivious to Bruno, he makes a new … [Read more...]
