Cramathon Wrap Up

So the cramathon is nearly over so here is my wrap up. Cramathon went from July 10th at 12 AM midnight (your time zone) - July 13th at 11:59 PM (your timezone) and was hosted by whittynovels. Although the cramathon does not finish until tonight, I don't see myself reading anything else.The were challenges to the readathon so let’s get started to see if I completed them…

1.Read a children's bookA Bear called Paddington


A Bear Called Paddington (Paddington, #1)I enjoyed reading this as it took me back to my childhood and was an enjoyable read. However, I thought that each chapter was like an individual story rather than it mounting to a novel in its own right. It was still a 4 star read. I, however, didn't read Harry Potter as I wasn't feeling it. 







2. Read a hardbackDeath House by Sarah Pinborough

The Death House
I really enjoyed this book, I went into it not knowing anything about it, thinking that it was more of a horror when in reality it was a contemporary. Although not knowing about it, my experience made it better and I really loved it. The characters were very good, as well as an entertaining plot with a twist ending. I also really enjoyed the writing of the book. It is definitely one of my favourites of the year.





3. Read 2 books in 24 hours

I read both A Bear called Paddington, Nimona and On the Beach at Night Alone on the first day of the readathon. 

4. Read a graphic novel: Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

NimonaAfter really enjoying Noelle Stevenson drawings in Fangirl, I was really excited for her to release her own graphic novel and the premise really attracted me to the read. I did really enjoy it as her artwork has this unpolished feel which I really liked. I also liked the plot to the story and quickly fell in love with the characters especially Nimona herself. 






5. Read a book written in verseOn the Beach at Night Alone by Walt Whitman


Although not a great lover of all things poetry, I did really enjoy this. I don't know if I would buy a whole antho
logy of this poems but this short snippet was enjoyable. 








6. Read a novellaThe Assassins Blade by Sarah J Maas

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)
First of all, I didn't read all of this book, I just read the first novella which was the Assassin and the Pirate Lord and I really liked it as I gave this a 5 stars rating rather than the 4 stars that I gave Throne of Glass as I didn't think that it lived up to the hype. I did however warm up to Celaena as a character and I enjoyed the new characters introduced to us like Sam. I also enjoyed Maas's writing and the plot of the story. 





7. Read 5 books total

I did read a total of 6 books but I am in the middle of two books one of which I may read tonight and they are...

Muirwood: The Lost Abbey by Jeff Wheeler


Muirwood: The Lost Abbey (Kindle Serial) (Legends of Muirwood)I enjoyed this graphic novel but it was not the best one I have read but I did enjoy the characters and the art work and do want to know what happens in the next issue as this was only the first issue. 








Currently reading: 

The Beautiful Cassandra by Jane Austen



This so far is a nice introduction to Jane Austen as I am enjoying the short stories inside, this is also making me want to read more of her work such as Pride and Prejudice by her.









Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon

Take Back the Skies (Take Back the Skies, #1)I am enjoying this so far and I don't think that I will finish it before tomorrow but I can always hope...

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
