Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five authors I have discovered this year. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…




Number 5: Jenn Bennett and Nicola Yoon

Everything, EverythingNight OwlsI had to let these two authors share the fifth spot because this list would not be complete without them. I really enjoyed both their books this year and they were definitely authors that I wouldn't have found otherwise. Night Owls and Everything, Everything will definitely be on my favourite's list this year. 





Number 4: Jandy Nelson 

I'll Give You the SunAlthough I didn't discover Jandy Nelson as an author this year, I did discover her books this year and I read both The Sky Is Everywhere and I'll Give You The Sun this year and they were wonderful books. I am so happy I read her books this year!









Number 3: Sarah Crossan 

OneLike Jandy Nelson, I had known about Sarah Crossan's books before this year but this was the year that I finally read her book and I really loved it. One was one of my anticipated books of the year and it lived up to my expectations it was amazing. Sarah has to be the newest entry in this list because I only read her book last week. 







Number 2: Andrew Smith

Winger (Winger, #1)Again, it seems like everyone would have known about Winger as it is a very popular book but I only managed to read it this year and I really enjoyed it and I need to read more books by him, especially Stand Off. 









Number 1: Holly Bourne

Am I Normal Yet?Holly Bourne has got to me my favourite author that I have found this year. Everyone raved about her books so much and I should have listened. I read Am I Normal Yet? and it has to be one of my favourite books of this year. I am so glad I discovered your books!

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films.
