My Reading Room


Mostly A: Nomi, No Time To Die, played by Lashana Lynch

You’re strong, intelligent, sexual and confident. It’ll take a tough man to satisfy your needs. You’re a career girl who wants it all and doesn’t need a man to get it.

Mostly B: Jinx, Die Another Day, played by Halle Berry

You ooze natural charm from every curve of your body. You tend to go for the ruggedly handsome kind of man, and someone who’s going to be your equal.

Mostly C: Wai Lin, Tomorrow Never Dies, played by Michelle Yeoh

You might be a rough and tough type of Bond girl, but that doesn’t make you any less attractive. You don’t go out with men, you go for gentlemen.

Mostly D: Vesper Lynd, Casino Royale, played by Eva Green

Brains are more important to you than beauty, and that’s what you look for in your men, too. You’d rather impress a man with your conversation than your cleavage.

Spilling The Royal Tea

Move aside Meghan, it’s time for Prince George to shine! HBO Max has green-lighted an animated series that centres on Prince William and Duchess Catherine’s first-born son. Tentatively titled “The Prince”, the cartoon follows the lives of the British Royals through the eyes of young George and was inspired by Gary Janetti’s wildly popular satirical Instagram account @garyjanetti.

The show has managed to put together an impressive voice cast thus far, including Orlando Bloom who is slated to lend his vocal chops to the recently independent Prince Harry.
