Posted on 13-May-16 14:20
I’m going to start off by saying romance is definitely one of my least favourite genres in books, movies and music.

In fact that's what I will say. I was giddy during the whole thing; I was completely fangirling; I was even squealing! (Only in my head though).

If you’re unlike musical lovers, you might not have dragged yourself to the theatre yet to see it. If you needed any more incentive...
