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!!

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

My Review:
Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
