Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse - Mandy Urena (book review)

Touchy, Feely, Squeezy: Musings of a Masseuse by Mandy Urena is not my usual type of book to read as a non-fiction book. However, this book really appealed to me as someone who loves to go to a masseuse myself.

This book is about Mandy and how she started to become a masseuse as well as all of the adventures she has had due to being a massage therapist. Also going into loads of different styles of massage and how she ended up massaging rockstars, those with cancer and so much more.

This is a great non-fiction which did make me laugh at times throughout the novel and left me feeling happy, however there is parts which is more heartfelt and has a great pace to the book. I loved also how at the start of every chapter there was quotes from various people which was a really good way to get into the chapter. Also with the chapters all having names such as: What do you do if a guy gets a woody? (and other unusual questions), The penis monologues, Energy massage and the uninvited poltergeist and many more I thought was a great touch for the novel.

I would highly recommend this book to people who like massages, the masseuse themselves and those who are looking for something a little different to read. This is one of the best non-fiction books I have ever personally read!! I only wish there was more for me to read!!

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
