2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. Let the hunt continue...









Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next year?

Northern Lights (His Dark Materials, #1)Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman- With the Book of Dust coming out in November this is a book series that I really need to catch up with.










Q3) Most anticipated read? 

FreshersIt Only Happens in the MoviesOK, I have three which are It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne, Freshers by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivision and the new John Green book that got announced yesterday! I can't believe we are getting a new John Green book, I am so excited!!!!! 






Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I mentioned in the last one that I would like to write about the concept of strong female characters in general and this is something that I would love to do. 

Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

My 20 things I have learned in 20 years blog post. 

Q6) Book you hate?

When Everything Feels Like the MoviesOK, hate is a strong word but I really dislike When It Feels Like The Movies because I didn't like the main character but I can see why the story was written. 










Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

Holly Black- I just like her books. 

Q8) Current read?

Eliza and Her MonstersEliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia- It is really good so far!!!











Q9) Next on your TBR?

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)Hollow City by Ransom Riggs- I just have a feeling that it is the right time to continue with this series.











Q10) What is next for your blog?


Onwards and Upwards I hope!!

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
