The Taylor Swift Book Tag: 1989 Edition #1

So on both the blogs and on booktube, I have seen the 1989 Taylor Swift tag doing the rounds after the album came out last year. Being a massive fan of Taylor Swift's music I thought that I would do the tag. I haven't been tagged by anyone but it looked fun. This tag was created by Sarah-Jane at the Booklife and you can find it here. So let's get started...

1. Shake it Off - 'The haters gonna hate hate hate' - Which book criticisms do you shake off regardless of what people think?

Take Back the Skies (Take Back the Skies, #1)Take Back The Skies by Lucy Saxon- this book currently has a 3.39 star rating on goodreads and has a lot of DNF'ed statuses  but I am really enjoying it. Although when I started to read it I didn't find it amazing as it progresses I am enjoying it even more and to me it's going to be a 4 star book. 

2. I Know Places - 'Loose lips sink ships all the damn time' - Which ship do you set your heart on, only to watch it sink?

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
The Maze Runner series-Thomas and Teresa- Although there is no direct fact that they are together in the books, I did like them as a couple especially with the telepathy as it made them have a connection but all doesn't go to plan... 

3. Wonderland - 'We found Wonderland, you and I got lost in it' - Which fictional character would you like to take with you to another land?

The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)The Iron Fey series- Puck- I love Puck and he is one of my favourite characters in this series. I feel like he knows enough about fantasy worlds that I feel he would be able to guide me and help me. He also has a great personality. 

4. Wildest Dreams - 'He’s so bad but he does it so well' - Which character do you love, not in spite of his darkness but because of his darkness?

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)If you saw my Top 5 Wednesday post then you will know that I dislike likable villains but I do like Warner from Shatter Me to an extent and he is quite dark which does make him quite likable. 

5. Out of The Woods - 'When you started crying baby I did too' -Name a time you cried with a fictional character.

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief-Liesel- This is one of my favourite books of all time and the end of the book is a heartbreaker and I was definitely crying with Liesel inside as a book has never made me cry. 

6. Clean - 'The drought was the very worst' - Which anticipated book release felt/feels like the longest wait ever?

The Iron Warrior (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten, #3)The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa- I read the second book in this series last year and I have been waiting for this series for what seems like a lifetime and I can't wait for this to come out.  

7. Bad Blood - 'Band aids don’t fix bullet holes' - Pick a book that gave you the most painful of feels.

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault In Our Stars by John Green- I don't think I need to explain this one...

8. Blank Space - 'Lets be friends, I’m dying to see how this one ends' -Which final book in a trilogy or series were you most nervous about reading?

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins- It's safe to I was "dying to see how this one ends" and to be honest I don't know if I was that disappointed in the ending to this series but it did have some flaws. 

9. Style - 'Cos we never go out of style' -Which three authors writing styles do you love?

Severed Heads, Broken HeartsRobyn Schneider- I love her writing it is simple but I love the way that she incorporates references that her readers will understand like the Harry Potter references in her books and social media. 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Tahereh Mafi- I love her writing, enough said...

Paper TownsJohn Green- It's John Green! To me, I love his writing, yes his plots can sometimes be repetitive but I do really love his writing. The way that he writes his characters makes me relate to them. I just love it okay. As if I didn't say it enough...

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

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
