As one-fifth of the iconic Spice Girls and judge on X Factor and America's Got Talent, Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, has been an international star since the age of 19. And yet there are sides of Mel that no one has ever seen, or really known. Brutally Honest is an exposé of the struggles and acute pain that lay behind the glamour and success. With deep personal insight, remarkable frankness and Melanie’s trademark Yorkshire humour, this audiobook removes the mask of fame and reveals the mother, wife and daughter behind the Spice Girl everyone thinks they know.

I knew I was going to love this book within minutes of listening to it. The narrator is brilliant and straight away I forgot that it’s not Melanie talking, really enjoyed listening to this book even though it’s sad and emotional. So brave of her to be so open.

  • Six Tudor Queens: Katherine of Aragon, the True Queen

The lives of Henry VIII's queens make for dramatic stories, and Alison Weir writes a series of novels that offer insights into the real lives of the six wives based on extensive research and new theories. In all the romancing, has anyone regarded the evidence that Anne Boleyn did not love Henry VIII? Or that Prince Arthur, Katherine of Aragon's first husband, who is said to have loved her, in fact cared so little for her that he willed his personal effects to his sister?

I really wanted to listen to this book and I’ve stuck with it up to chapter 15 but I can’t stand it any longer. The ‘voices’ are just annoying. I’m pretty sure that the people in the Tudor court didn’t speak pigeon English and Catherine’s voice is not realistic at all, right from the beginning it’s so deep. Such a shame as I was so looking forward to this book.
