Top 5 Wednesday: Things on your bookshelf that aren't books

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is things on your bookshelf that aren’t books. 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: An owl and a TID necklace

All of the items on my bookshelf, I feel make my bookshelf look nicer, hence the owl. I received it from Christmas and I feel like it makes my bookshelf a little bit more like me (as i have a weird owl obsession). Also being a fan of Cassandra Clare’s books I thought that it would be nice to put my Clockwork Angel necklace before I wear it. 

Number 4: Mockingjay Pins

Although the MockingJay pins are on my TBR (To Be Read) Shelf not with my the Hunger Games books, I like the addition they add to my shelf as they show that I am a fan of the Hunger Games and make my shelf just that little bit more interesting. 

Number 3: An audiobook

Most of the time, I am a physical book reader but I don’t mind reading eBooks. I mainly have the audiobook there to force myself to listen to it. I have had it for over a year but I have not listened to it yet. 

Number 2: A butter beer cup with bookmarks

After going to the Harry Potter studio tour, I was left with a butterbeer cup and I had nowhere to put my bookmarks so I put the two together and I think that it makes a nice addition on my bookshelf. 

Number 1: A coaster

I have a coffee addiction that my bookshelf even can’t avoid. The coaster prevents any damage to my bookshelf as I like to drink coffee and read books. It also looks nice on my bookshelf.

Honourable Mentions:

-      More Books- It’s fair to say that I have a book buying addiction and I need to stop buying books as I now have too many that they are now on the top of my bookshelf.
-      A Hufflepuff badge- I class myself as a Hufflepuff and it is fair to say I am proud about it so it has it on my bookshelf. I got it with the butterbeer cup at the Harry Potter studio tour.
-      A “the book was better” badge- As the saying goes the book is better than the movie apart from some exceptions hence why it is on my bookshelf.

What is on your bookshelf that are not books? Let me know 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
