Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious and cranky, or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over?
Of course the place must be tidy before company comes over! 🙂
Maybe he’ll climb the Eiffel Tower and jump off it. Maybe he’ll tackle the Arc de Triomphe or the famous Louvre or the Notre Dame… whatever! Tom Cruise would be shooting scenes for MI6 in Paris and they should get him to run along the Champs-Élysées. The Latin Quarter would make a great shot too.
The sixth and perhaps final installment of the Mission Impossible franchise would see Tom Crusie and company globetrot a bit with Paris, London, New Zealand, and India on the itinerary. Unfortunately, Jeremy Renner won’t be back because his dates are clashing with Avengers: Infinity War, something I don’t care for, but I’ll miss his presence. He was funny and the voice of reason.
India is another destination I am excited for. I think Cruise and McQuarrie should consider asking Shah Rukh Khan to make an appearance to give it a sultrier appeal or Ranveer Singh seeing that he is Bollywood’s future heir or even Hrithik Roshan so he can learn how to perform better action stunts from the world’s greatest action star.
Tom Cruise made stunt history in Rogue Nation for hanging off a plane and holding his breath under water for 6 minutes and I remember thinking that he isn’t going to top that, but McQuarrie recently revealed that the actor has spent the past year training for a single MI6 stunt. Is he going to finally fly without restraint? Kidding. Kidding! Hmmm… I wonder if it involves the Eiffel Tower or the Big Ben or maybe the Taj Mahal?
MI6 starts shooting in April and already has a release date for July 27, 2018.
Story of my life!
There are many benefits to being a book lover. Maybe we have an unhealthy compulsion to buy books. Maybe we have no surface space not claimed by random literary treasures. We may regularly suffer from book hangovers, but by gollie we:

Base on the book reviews that I am currently doing weekly, you can tell that I am open to many genres. Yet, while some books appeal to me, some simply do not. I try to always come to the last page of a book, but there are simply some books that I can’t quite finish no matter what.
Today, I bring you 10 boring/disappointing books I had the displeasure of reading (some may/may not appear in later reviews). Most of them I did not finish. I do not make apologies to anyone feeling offended because my opinions are not yours.
1. Room by Emma Donaghue
Waterfall the milk… I know this book is from a child’s perspective (a five-year-old at that), but it insulted my intelligence. I was greatly annoyed and had to put this book down. Had the book been told from Ma’s perspective, then it would’ve been a heart-wrenching tale. I mean, Ma’s been kidnapped, raped, held captive, whatever, but there is no sense of that hence no emotion. I almost threw this book at the wall. Almost. It didn’t belong to me and I was happy to return it.
2. Wicked Business by Janet Evanovich
3. Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich
*Rolls eyes* Wickedly boring! Had I known I was going to be duped, I would’ve run away screaming when this book was recommended to me.
4. White Oleander by Janet Fitch
An immature novel masquerading as literature. Adults should stop writing about children in disgusting ways because it’s squirmy and uncomfortable to read most of the time. I don’t want to read about 14-year-olds having sex or thinking about climaxing on some car hood.
I would have liked to light this book on fire, but alas! It did not belong to me.
5. Missing Mom by Joyce Carol Oates
I couldn’t get into this one. I tried twice, but it was a no go. It was a pain to read, sentences were left incomplete, too repetitive, and it irritated me to no end. I didn’t even care about the narrator or the dead mom.
6. Paris Match by Stuart Woods
The cover is beautiful and that’s where I stop.
7. Is America She Gone? by Beverley-Ann Scott
It could’ve been much better. I’ll explain this book in a solo post.
8. Gray Mountain by John Grisham
*YAWNS* I usually love Grisham’s legal thrillers, but I couldn’t get into this one. The heroine was a complete bore and… *YAWNS* I had to put this drivel down otherwise I would’ve thrown myself in front of a coal truck.
9. Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes
10. Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
I don’t care how hyped or in she is, this author is on my “do not read” list. Do you see the razor blade on the cover? It would be nice to use it to slash up this book to tiny pieces. It is depressing. It makes you want to abandon smiling and scorn love. Here is another adult writing disturbing scenes involving children. I hated this book. It was extremely boring and disgusting.
Ah, the last day of this challenge! I’m already looking forward to the next one! 😛
