Rating: 3/5 stars


Book Summary:

Only three students had access to a teacher’s racy photos before they went viral. There’s Mouse, a brainy overachiever so desperate to escape his father and go to MIT that he would do almost anything, legal or not. Then there’s Drew, the star athlete who can get any girl’s number—and private photos—with his charm but has a history of passing those photos around. And finally there’s Jenna, a good girl turned rebel after her own shocking photos made the rounds at school last year, who is still waiting for justice. All three deny leaking the photos, but someone has to take the fall. This edgy whodunit tackles hot-button issues of sexting and gossip and will have readers tearing through the pages to reach the final reveal.

Book Review:

I was excited to read Easy Prey at the beginning because thrillers are not my main genre so I wanted to give it ago. I really enjoyed the book and would like to read more from Catherine Lo in the future.

I think that one of the things that I really did enjoy about the book was the characters. They all had their own individual characteristics and were all unique in their own way.

Like a lot of thrillers in recent years, the book plays off the whole Breakfast Club stereotypes with one being a nerd, one being the popular girl who suffers with a problem and the popular guy. I think that these were done in a good way with them being well developed and having their own unique characteristics.

Although I did like many ideas in the book, I did find the book hard to get into and was not as hooked as I would have liked to have been when reading a thriller. There was also a romance in the boon which I did not fully love and it felt quite forced and on one side made me really hate the character in some moments. These did effect my overall enjoyment of the book although I did like it.

The problem with thrillers is that I do tend to guess the ending and with the characters having their own chapters it did make this easier for me not to guess who did it which is always a good thing. 

The Verdict:

Easy Prey is an entertaining and unputdownable thriller perfect for anyone who wants to get into the genre.

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
