TBR Challenge?

I feel like me and TBRs are a losing battle. We all know what happens. We have a lot of the books we want to read in a month. The most anticipated. The ones that we want to read. The end of the month rolls around and we haven't read them all.

For the history of the blog, l have done so many like this. l have been too ambitious or I want to read something else so those books remain unread. I would love to do a reaction because there are books I put on my TBR put to five years ago and I still haven't read them!

l have to admit that in daily life this year, the same thing has happened. I don't make TBRs for the blog but I like to have a pile of books that I want to read on my nightstand and so many of them are just sitting there. Unread and it is making me feel so bad. 

I know that this is because I haven't been reading as much as I like this year, especially in the last month or so. I use to have a lot more free time when l was at university. Now it just seems like my life is never-ending. I always have something I can do before I get to reading. 

I definitely do need to manage my time better in this case as I really want to read more. So hopefully in the month of May, I can make more time for reading because I do miss it. Also, my overall TBR is out of control so reading the books will definitely help with this!

In general, I think that I personally should get rid of TBRs because life is too unpredictable for me. I would love to be one of those people it works for and who sticks to them. But right now, that's just not me and that's OK.

I just need to get reading!

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
