Mid-Year DNF Tag

So I'm not a massive DNFer but I was tagged by Rachel of RacheLeanne to take part in the Mid-Year DNF Tag.

I feel like I have changed by DNF game of late, hence why I have actually DNFed one book and I think that I should do it more now because if I don't like something then I shouldn't suffer through it so there. 


So let's get started to the tag...

Here are the rules...


  1. Introduce yourself with one random fact.
  2. List all the books you’ve DNFed this year, with a brief reason why.
  3. Tag five people to take part!
So I'm Amy and I am currently doing a Masters in History and I will be going into my second year in October as I am doing it part-time!

So here is the book I have DNFed...

Ship It by Britta Lundin 

Ship It

I was so excited to read this book, partly because the cover was really great and also because it had LGBTQ+ representation. To be fair I really loved this book at the beginning but seeking out reviews I saw that it was quite problematic and that there were problems with it. The characters are really dislikable and to be fair the book's plot basically follows on a stan (used in a negative way) and the whole fetishization of gay men by women which this book follows on. Once I noticed this, it was hard to get into the story so I DNFed. 

As for the people I tag, feel free to do it if you want to...

Have you DNFed any books this year? If so, what were they in? 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
