In the series of the Gallagher Academy books by Ally Carter, I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You, Is the very first book in the series and a very good launch to the books.
The main plot of the book is a teenage girl named Cammie Morgan, daughter of the headmistress of the Gallagher Academy, which is no ordinary school, it's a school for spies. Cammie can speak 14 different languages and sentence a man to death in 7 ways, but there is one task that they haven't taught her to do, fall in love. They may have prepared Cammie for the outside world as a spy, but not for a teenage girl.
When Cammie makes her way into town, she meets Josh and is in no way prepared to handle her emotions, she may be able to find out all about his life, but can she face trying to tell him about hers, especially when she has a spy life, so can't even try to tell him. Can Cammie really fall in love?!
I found this book a real page turner, after the first chapter I was sucked into the life of being a spy at the Gallagher academy, wanting to know how this came to be, and most importantly to see how Cammie could handle being an ordinary teenage girl for a while, but as I found, it can be very hard. I also liked the way that the lead role was taken by a girl for once instead of a boy in a spy book.
I absolutely loved Cammie's character while she was funny and silly, she was witty and very deadly. Accompanied by her best friends, Rebecca Baxter and Elizabeth Sutton, or known as Bex and Liz, and a new addition to their trio, Macey, the senators daughter, Cammie manages to scrap through the tough on all of her life changing journeys!
This book is exceedingly good and I recommend it to anyone who likes a fast pace good spy book where you get sucked into the action! A big well done to Ally Carter on her amazing talent to create such books! Keep them coming!
Have fun reading guys!
This phone was bought for my daughter as her first mobile phone, it has lasted her a couple of years and she has just finally upgraded. I thought it better for her to write the review as she is the one who has been using it.
The Samsung B3310 is an exceptional little phone for a great value price. This little pink phone is brilliant for a starter phone for the kids or a kick about and wreck phone for when you don't want to let your pricey phone do the dirty work. Also with its easily usable qwerty keypad makes texting on the go a breeze!
Now even though this little phone doesn't look like too much on the outside it has far more on the inside of its case than you would think. With its easily usable Bluetooth built into the phone to send the pictures you can take with your 2.0mp camera. Which takes unbelievable pictures! And can impress your mates with how good the quality of your pictures turn out to look, so click and get that awesome pic!
There is also another sending device packed into the phone called infrared which can do the same thing as Bluetooth but by using infrared rays to send your pictures or music.
Another brilliant aspect of this phone is its qwerty keypad, which slides out from under the phone screen, making texting and socializing so much easier for the faint hearted. The phone also has 40mb of memory built in and has a memory slot to expand the memory, which can be helpful if you like having music accessible on your phone or have some games.
The phone does come with a couple of game demos built in, one of which is Tetris. There is also FM radio built in, which can only be used when your headphones are plugged in. Although the phone does not have a touch screen its keypad makes up for it.
The phones battery is of one of the best I have ever seen, whenever I used it the battery would last for a week and sometimes longer! And when I did come to charge it, it would take barely an hour so very good if your not keen on charging!
The one disappointment for me personally was the fact that the phone does not use 3G connection so out on the go searching and more is out of the question, so this phone is NOT for you if you need that on the go internet. This may make some people class the phone as 'old' but I will tell you something, with what this phone can do, It can in no way be classed as an old phone.
With the price this phone goes for and what it helped me through, it can in no way be shunted for its brilliance! The phone also comes in blue for the calmer people and black for that cool vibe. But all in all this phone is one word, Stunning!
In our house we have always used Braun Oral B electric toothbrushes - myself, husband and kids, but it has always been the ones on the cheaper end of the scale. The Triumph 5000 was given to me for Christmas, which I was quite pleased about because I don't think I could bring myself to fork out well over £100 on a toothbrush - no matter how many bells and whistles it has got.
The toothbrush comes with a selection of heads, a base unit/charger, a timer (which is called the smart guide) and a carry case. The base unit also has space to store 4 brush heads.
I was pleased with the inclusion of the brush heads, as Oral B makes so many different types and it gave me an opportunity to try others as I generally just stick to the precision clean as I like the small head. Having said that I still consider the precision clean head to be the best.
My eldest daughter has fixed braces and I love that I can get a special orthodontic head for her, this has to be purchased from a specialist orthodontist though so there is a heavy price tag.
The toothbrush has 5 different cleaning modes which are accessed by pushing the smaller button on the front, it has a 30 and 45 second clean, a polishing, sensitive and a massaging mode. These modes interact wirelessly with the smart guide to let you know which setting you are using and the time for each quadrant of the mouth. I tend to use the 30 second mode as I find this works the best for me.
The brush and the smart guide interact seamlessly with each other, even at a distance. When you turn the toothbrush on the smart guide immediately starts to count and the quadrants fill up just in time with the toothbrush beeping to tell you to move to another quadrant of your mouth. When you have finished brushing if you have completed the required amount of time you get 4 stars and a smiley face!
However my favourite feature of this brush is the angry red flashing light that appears if you press to hard against the teeth, my dentist was always saying how I brush to hard and it was having a bad effect on my gum margins but I never was able to stop scrubbing at my teeth, until now!! It has really stopped me pressing too hard and now my gums are a lot more healthy.
All in all I am extremely pleased with this brush, it is suitable for all the family, my youngest child is 7 and she uses it with the precision head and really enjoys brushing her teeth properly so she can get her stars and happy face. All of my family have found our teeth feel a lot cleaner after using this brush, I have a feeling the movement of the head is a lot more involved than the cheaper models and this makes a great deal of difference.
Most of all though when we had our annual check up last week no one needed a filling and myself and my husband only had a very quick clean! This is what prompted me to write this review never before have we come away from the dentist without any work needing to be done!
The brush is in one word amazing, even so I really do not think it justifies anywhere between a £100-£200 price tag, if I were to have to get a replacement I would defiantly wait for a half price offer. I can't see myself using another brush for a good while to come!
This game is a hit worldwide and is a follow up of the whole Call of Duty series. You can start your blood thirst war in campaign mode to get your grips with the game and push yourself with different difficulty's according to your ability's.
Then you have the special ops missions which I found very exciting but I did not agree with the way you had to unlock all of the other missions by earning the stars based on the difficulty of each completed mission.
And last but not least there is the online gaming where you can connect to a variety of game modes based on your liking with people from around the globe and your friends. There is a basic team death match where most of the run and gun action happens, or you could go stealth on a search and destroy. This is the most used feature of the game and for some is the only used feature of the game.
I find that it is very exciting and addictive and very fun. There is only one fault with this, this is that your internet connection, which will help depend on whether you or your enemy dies in confrontation, is it bad you will find the gaming very jumpy and find it almost impossible to kill anyone. So keep an eye on how good or bad your connection is, because that is the one thing which will enhance or ruin your gaming experience. But not to end on a bad note it is a brilliant shooting game and worth a try, so good gaming everyone!
