Book Review:

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a really solid read, great for anyone who loves to read.

So only having a vague idea of the premise I started reading the book and found out from the first page that I needed to know what happened. I was fully invested in the story and needed to keep reading. I was intrigued by the story and the mysterious guy at the beginning who I ended up really liking as a character. The letter was also a mystery so basically, I just wanted to keep reading.


This was similar to throughout the book, the plot was quite interesting throughout and it definitely kept me reading. I didn't want to put it down. I also liked how the book had many mundane issues and dealt with the family aspects of it really well. I definitely thought that this was developed throughout and I especially liked her cat because I am a sucker for cats in books.


I also really enjoyed the characters in the book, Amelina was a really solid character and I liked seeing her arc through the book. I also did really enjoy the writing. The poetry at the beginning of every chapter was a nice addition and I have not seen this done in other books before. The general writing of the book was also really good and hopefully, I can get my hands on the sequel.
The Verdict:

The Curse of Time is an interesting and engaging fantasy read that focuses on family that is great for anyone who loves a great read!

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
