Love, Lies and Linguine

Author: Hilary Spiers

This is the second Hester and Harriet books and I have to say I enjoyed it just as much as the first one.  The characters are fantastic, in that they are easily identifiable and make the most unlikely of heros.  Like the first book there are two story lines running alongside each other that remains connected with both storylines being just as captivating as the other.  This is one of those rare books that I think would appeal to a wide range of readers, as sometimes it is great to curl up with a book that isn't too taxing but still manages to remain intriguing enough that you don't want to put it down, (which was the case with me, and I could be seen with the vacuum in one hand or a spoon mixing soup and the book in the other.)

BFG

This is the modern movie remake of the classic book by legendary author Roald Dahl.  In a word to describe the movie I would say 'WOW' The graphics were amazing, the acting was great and the story line remains just as magical today as it did when the story was first written.  I think that if Roald Dahl was to see this movie he would be totally thrilled.  This is one of those movies where although I have read the book BFG several times, once the credits started rolling I wanted to re-read the book.
