Blog Tour: Goddess Aditi: Legendary Ladies: 50 Goddesses To Empower and Inspire You

* I am reviewing this book for a blog tour but this in no way affects my review *

Title: Legendary Ladies: 50 Goddesses To Empower and Inspire You
 
Authors: Ann Shen
Source: Blog Tour
Publisher: Abram 
Rating: 4/5 stars


Book Summary:

Throughout History comes this lushly illustrated book of goddesses from around the world. Aphrodite, the Greek goddess whose love overcame mortality. Mazu, the Chinese deity who safely guides travelers home. Lakshmi, the Hindu provider of fortune and prosperity. These powerful deities and many more are celebrated in gorgeous artwork and enlightening essays that explore the feminine divine and encourage readers to empower themselves. Ann Shen's signature watercolors make Legendary Ladies a unique, gift-worthy homage to the mighty women within.


As part of this blog tour, each post will focus on a specific "Legendary Lady" or Goddess and for my stop, I will focus on Aditi. 



Aditi is a Hindu Goddess who focuses on the sky. Her name translates to limitless which reflect the extent of her powers in Hindu mythology. She basically has control of the whole universe, cosmos and can change the past and future. As she is literally the mother of all Hindu Gods. It is safe to say that Aditi is the ultimate legendary lady!

In many examples, she is also depicted as a cow due to her nurturing nature which is quite odd but still cool none the less. 

***

Legendary Ladies is also a wonderful book which amazing illustrations featuring insight information about 50 or more goddesses that I have personally never heard of. The book is also great for anyone young and old looking for a read featuring mythology and goddess. 

This blog tour also only features 13 of the 50 Goddesses in the book so is definitely a must read!

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
