Book Summary:

Sixteeen-year-old Meredith is fed-up with her feuding family and feeling invisible at school – not to mention the witch magic that shoots out of her fingernails when she’s stressed. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she falls for him hard. The only problem is that he is periodically possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse. Meredith has lost her heart, but will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?

Book Review:

So I loved this.

I'm kind of annoyed at myself because I have followed Katharine and Elizabeth for the longest time on Twitter and have wanted to read this book for the same amount of time and of course I loved it.

Also side-note, I started playing the audiobook this morning and only after a couple of breaks and my phone dying I finally finished this in one day! I was not expecting that! (Also I really liked the narrator too!)

I loved everything about this book. I loved Merry who was a realistic portrayal of a sixteen-year-old girl and I loved Leo with all of my heart too. I also loved the relationship between the two of them as I don't think sibling relationships are explored that much at all in YA so this was a nice change. Also, I liked Jack and Merry together and apparently, I have to read the third book to find out what happens so...

I was just really captivated from the first page and didn't know when to stop so I didn't. I think there were some nice storytelling and I wasn't sure where the story was going to go to but I enjoyed where it did. I also think that the story was grounded, it still kept Merry's problems relating to school at the centre and a lot of the setting was grounding relying on the family dynamics which again I liked.

It also feels like a nice contained story although you do get glimpses of a sequel so I will be on that soon. I just hope that it is not four years later this time because I will be really sad if that is the case.

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
