10 Bookish Questions Tag

So last week, I was tagged by A Books Neverland to do a tag that she created on her Youtube three years ago but transitioned to her blog. It is the 10 Bookish Questions Tag so let's get started...

Question One: How many books do you currently own?

Honestly, I really don't want to count all of my books but know that I have a lot. I have about 275 on my Kindle, 40 audiobooks and A LOT of physical books probably around 300 books but there are a lot of them. 

Question Two: How many books are you currently reading?

About 4 books but mainly A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Rebel, Run by Manjeet Mann, Fleabag: The Scriptures by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Ayoade on Top by Richard Ayoade. 

Question Three: Choose a couple books you read but didn't enjoy?

The two that I go on about all the time are The November Criminals by Sam Munson and When Everything Feels Like the Movies by Raziel Reid. Both are really bad and are problematic and just no to both of them. 

Question Four: A cover buy?

Go by Kazuki Kaneshiro. I brought this on Kindle but I saw the cover on the page and thought that it looked really interesting and decided to buy it. It was a really interesting take at looking at nationality and belonging to a nation although I wouldn't say it was a YA book and was more a cross over YA. I also wanted to read more translated fiction so this was the best way to do that with a good cover!

Question Five: A book you own but hate the cover of?

I agree with Milly and basically, all book to movie adaptation covers especially The Host as that film poster just isn't good anyway. 

Question Six: A book you haven't read in years?

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I haven't read the book since I was 16 and I wanted to reread it as it is a banned book which I can read in Banned Book Week. 

Question Seven: A book you will always recommend?

Anything by David Owen because everyone should read at least one of his books!

Question Eight: All-time favourite book series?

For me, it was always a toss-up between The Hunger Games and Harry Potter but I think that I will always go towards The Hunger Games as it made such a massive impact on me and my teenage years.

Question Nine: Where do you read? 

Anywhere! On the train, on the bus, in bed, on the sofa. Yeah, I'm quite versatile!

Question Ten: What are the last two books you gave a 5-star rating? and why? 

So I don't really give a rating anymore but I really loved The Ask And The Answer by Patrick Ness because I love Patrick Ness and I also just love books that made me think and lovable characters and this has both. I also loved My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness as it was a great look at depression and Kabi Nagata gives a raw and honest portrayal of it. 

I tag (if you want to do it):
Rachel from RacheLeanne

Alex from Schmirfle

If anyone else wants to do it feel free!

How many books do you own? Let me know in the comments below! 

See you soon,

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

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 may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female repres
