Top 5 Wednesdays: 5 Characters I wish I can drown

It's Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday. This week’s topic is the top 5 characters I wish I could drown. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the GoodReads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…


Number 5- Tris from Divergent


I do like Tris as a character, it’s just that at some points she can be really annoying, so it’s not that I want to drown her just knock some sense into her. This especially comes in Allegiant when she still tries to save Caleb even though he has been plotting against her the entire series. I get that her ties to her family are strong but some people just aren’t worth saving, in fact, I would probably just drown Caleb to protect Tris.


Number 4- Victor Frankenstein from Frankenstein

To me, you are also meant to like the protagonist but I just don’t. He creates the creature and neglects him and wonders why he is evil. Like father like son… 







Number 3- Umbridge from the Harry Potter series

While writing this post, Umbridge can be seen on many of these posts and, mine is not an exception. I am currently writing this wearing a Harry Potter shirt showing my love for the series. She is evil; making Harry write in his own blood as well as having a weird obsession with cats. She also makes everyone’s life at Hogwarts torture. There’s nothing to like about her.

Number 2- Valentine from The Mortal Instruments series

As a villain we are expected to dislike them but Valentine just takes a villain to a whole new level. (Spoilers ahead, if you have not read the City of Glass, stop reading now!) Valentine pretends that Clary and Jace are siblings and in the City of Glass it is revealed that he experiments on both his son and daughter and I believe he also kills a woman while doing so. It is fair to say Valentine has cemented on this list.



Number 1- Sutter Keely from the Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

Image result for spectacular nowSutter Keely to me is automatically a dislikeable character, he is a senior in high school who has a non-caring attitude and is a borderline alcoholic at 18. It is when he finds Amie that you will think he will change but he just doesn’t. He is the same for the entire novel and I would happily slap him to knock some sense into him because we do not need people like him in this world.

Who would be the characters that you would drown, leave your opinions in the comments below.

See you soon

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

6 Year Blog Anniversary

Every year I forget when my blog anniversary is even after six years! I know that it is in June but it is today the 15th of June!  A lot has happened in six years when I started this blog. Before my first blog post, I was going to university later that summer. Now I have a BA and MA degree! And I have tracked my progress all the way. It's a bit emotional to think about it!  I am so grateful were my blog. I enjoy the content that I make and in a year where I have basically stopped interacting with a lot of social media but my views are higher than ever. They have tripled in a year! I think this might because I have linked my blog on my job application and CVs so if you are a recruiter, Hi!  In other news, I have loved seeing the change in my content and hopefully see my writing progress and I hope that this continues. Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life and I love to see them. So let's get started...   Q1) Favourite Book Frankenstein by Mary She
