Cramathon TBR- Dec 2016

So it's been a while, hasn't it. University has just been crazy and I have not really had time to read or blog but I now off for Christmas. Although I have a few deadlines and Harry Potter society stuff to do, I hope that I will be posting on here again soon. Anyway, I thought that I would post a Cramathon TBR which is a readathon hosted by WhittyNovels and Aprililus Maximus. The readathon starts on 16th December at 12 am and finished at 12 am on the 23rd December with the aim to read as much as possible to complete your Goodreads goal. I have already completed my Goodreads goal but need to get back into reading so thought this would be the way to do it. There are challenges that you need to complete and I am going to talk about them now. So let's get started...

Challenges

1. Read a book under 200 pages


Marly's GhostMarly's Ghost by David Levithan- I think that it is around 160 pages so definitely fits this theme and it is almost a retelling of a Christmas Carol so seems like a perfect fit. 










2. Read 2 books in 24 hours

Hopefully, I can read two of these books in 24 hours. It seems doable. 

3. Read a book set in a different country than where you live


You Know Me WellYou Know Me Well by David Levithan and Nina LaCour- It is set in America, I live in England. I am also excited to read this so...











4. Read a book you've been putting off/have been meaning to read forever 

To Kill a Mockingbird (To Kill a Mockingbird #1)To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee- I have wanted to read this book since I bought it last year and I pretty sure I said that I wanted to finish it this year. As you can see it has not happened yet but there is still time. 










5. Read a book with pictures 

Challenger DeepI am currently reading Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman which is quite a difficult read as I do relate to some aspects of the story but it features illustrations throughout so hopefully I can finish it during the week. 









6. Read a graphic novel

I am going to be reading 2 single issues instead and they are Great Lake Avengers #2 and Champions #3 so I hope they count. 

7. Read 7 books


If I read all the books on my TBR, that is 6 books and if I count the books that I am currently reading then that is 7 books so I would have completed this challenge. 

OK, so that is my Cramathon TBR. Are you planning on joining the readathon? Do you want to read any books mentioned in this post? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon, 

Amy

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

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. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you
