Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Maps

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is favourite maps. 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: Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne



Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1)I find that it is rare for a dystopian/ post-apocalyptic book to contain a map but this one does. I feel like it adds scope to the novel and you can understand the location of each person in relation to each other. This novel is also set in a supermarket so you can see how they adapt it to their needs.  










Number 4: The Lord Of The Rings/The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien 













The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)The Lord of the RingsBeing one of the most epic fantasy novels ever, it is expected that the maps would be one of the best and most stunning around and they are. Again the scope of series is massive and the maps themselves let you kept up with their journey. 








Number 3: Song Of Ice & Fire series by George R.R. Martin 



A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)I have to admit that I have not read the book or seen the television show (this is kind of a lying I am 20 pages through the first book but I don't think that counts) but the map is beautiful and it looks like it would be helpful to visual the lands









Number 2: The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo




Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)I really enjoyed this trilogy but the scope of this book is quite large so having a map really helped in knowing where the characters were plus the map in the series were really beautifully illustrated so that helps too.











Number 1:Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas



Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Again this is an epic fantasy series and this makes it more understandable especially when the first novel does cover a large area and I would find times when I would look at the maps for guidance and found it helpful. Plus they are very pretty too.






Honorable Mentions:


-Harry Potter-Marauder's Map- I know this is in the film and I don't think can be seen in the books but it is a nice looking map.

-The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon- Although I do wish there was more than just the one map, I feel like it helps with Sheol I although not the prettiest of maps.







Image result for prentisstown map-The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness- Although only in the last book which I haven't read again the map helps with identifying places and giving an idea of where they are. A nice edition to a good series. 







Image result for downsiders map- Downsiders by Neal Shusterman- Also another nice map in books and can give a good contrast with the topside and the side with which they live. 









- Legend by Marie Lu- I like the map in this book as it gives scope to the new dystopian America as the land has changed a large amount. (This map is in Prodigy)

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
