    Jennifer Aniston Season: The Break-up

    Jennifer Aniston Season: The Break-up

    In the final episode of Jennifer Aniston season, I am looking at a film that is definitely not all sweetness and light. Witness the breakdown of a relationship as Brooke and Gary do everything they can to make the break-up as painful as possible in 2006's The Break-up.

    The Bookshop: Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief

    The Bookshop: Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief

    Today is an extra special Bookshop episode as not only do I discuss the first in the Percy Jackson the Olympians series, but I managed to persuade Kelsey and Kailin from the fantastic book podcast https://open.spotify.com/show/464LMuMiVjHJNEXwwxLr30?si=4a15615276b745aa (Touch Your Shelf) to put a pause on their hiatus to talk about it with me. In the episode we talk about guilty pleasures, mythology, why bookshelves should (or shouldn't) be carefully organised and so much more. Give the episode a listen to find out what we really enjoyed about the book and the things that caused us to pause and stare blankly at the page for a few moments.

    Jennifer Aniston Season: Just Go With It

    Jennifer Aniston Season: Just Go With It

    It's the penultimate episode of Jennifer Aniston Season and I am taking a look at one of her more recent romantic comedies, the first of her two roles with Adam Sandler, 2011's Just Go With It. This film is based loosely on the 1969 film Cactus Flower and could be considered something of a farce, if the story is analysed too closely, at least. Is this one of Aniston's better romantic comedies? Was it received better by the critics and the audience? How did it do at the box office? Give this episode a listen to find out.

    Jennifer Aniston Season: Along Came Polly

    Jennifer Aniston Season: Along Came Polly

    It had to be on the list somewhere, and what better time than now to talk about one of Aniston's most successful romcoms (at least when it comes to the box office). So here I am, talking about Along Came Polly, her 2004 romcom with Ben Stiller. It feels somewhat appropriate after one of the reviews I talked about last week mentioned that Jennifer Aniston was better in films starring Stiller and Sandler. I also talk about anxiety and how I have been feeling this week.

    The Bookshop: Pestilence

    The Bookshop: Pestilence

    Set in a future not too far from ours, this dystopian New Adult fantasy from Laura Thalassa. This is the first in a series of four books, with the fourth due to be released on 9th November. I wasn't sure what to expect of this as I haven't read any other books by this author, so this was a learning experience.

Sorry! You're In My Seat ,

My weekly fix comes with Coffee

I look forward to my weekly fix of 'Not Before Coffee' and reserve each episode for a long dog walk, run, or weekend drive. Raye consistently produces a professional and enjoyable podcast giving great insight into movies and books. Raye always comes across as genuine, honest and passionate about what she does. A great podcast to settle into.

Professional and authentic

Just started listening, really enjoyed the podcast, great balance between a professional and smooth delivery but still sounding authentic. Really liked how Raye opened up about her mental health during lockdown. I’ll certainly be listening again!

5 Stars

Pop the kettle on and make yourself a cuppa. It's time to listen to Raye breaking down a movie, a book and her life in the warm, welcoming and, quite frankly, honest way that only she can. 5 stars.
