9 Must-Read Romance Novels

I've always been a fan of romance novels, but it's surprising how many of the ones I've picked up off the shelves have been disappointing.

Theatre Review: & Juliet

This review of & Juliet has been a long time coming, because I actually saw this brand new musical when it premiered in Manchester back in September.

Recently I’ve been finding it harder than usual to unwind each day.
