New Year Resolutions 2018

So as I am writing this it is the 1st January which means that it is time for New Years Resolutions. Let's get started
1. Continue to Learn French/German
This is something that I did in my first year of university and would love to continue to do. I would like to do this at least 3 or 4 times a week so...

2. Take better care of myself
For this one I would like to just eat better, exercise more and drink more water but also give myself self-care when I need it. 

3. Read as much as possible and read more diversely 
This one is kind of self-explanatory but I would like to read as much as possible reading something at least once a day. I would like to read diverse books but also to read more classics and adult books. 

4. Review books after I read them don't wait months to do so 
Again quite explanatory but I would like to write reviews at least two days after I read them and not leave them for months or even a year to review them better.

5. Write more 
I have a current Work In Progress that I would like to finish this year but I would also love to write something every day, whether this is something for my degree, for this blog or creative writing I would love to do this!

6. Watch 100 Films
I did this in 2017 and would love to do this again!

7. Finish my Wreck This Journal
I have had this on the go for almost three years now and I didn't do anything this year so I would now like to change this.

8. Tweet more and interact with fellow bloggers
This is quite self-explanatory again but I don't really tweet that much and would love to and therefore I would also love to read more blogs and put myself out there more. 

9. Finish or work towards finishing my WIP
This is a pipe dream but I can hope but I will hopefully do NaNoWriMo twice this year which should help.

10. Upload and update my blog 
I would like to add a review section to my blog and update the book reviews sections on my blog. I would also love to cross-post all my reviews to Amazon and Goodreads. I feel like this would take at least a day but I want to do it! 

11. Be up-to-date with book reviews
I have some books that I have to review for ages and would love all the reviews to be out and to be on top of them all. This is a hopeful one but I can dream.

Do you have any resolutions if so what are they?

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
