Top 5 Wednesday: Books to read by the fire

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books to read by the fire. 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: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis  

The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)This one is probably a no brainer. When Lucy first walks in the wardrobe there is a blanket of white snow on the floor and snow is the first thing I think of winter. This would just be a great book to sit around the fire and read.   

Number 4: My True Love Gave to Me by Stephanie Perkins and other authors 

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Winter RomancesThis is a collection of Christmas stories and is definitely perfect for around the fire. The stories in this book also have a Christmas or winter theme so are perfect to read around the fire. 

Number 3: Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson  

Let It SnowThis is the book that I am currently reading and I definitely know that if I do not read it this year then I will have to wait for next year. It is definitely a Christmas read centred around this time and the Maureen Johnson part is set in a snow storm and this just says a winter read.  

Number 2: Dash and Lilly's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn 

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (Dash & Lily, #1)This is another Christmas book that is perfect for Christmas. Especially if you like a book set in New York during Christmas. It is definitely another book perfect for reading by the fire!

Number 1: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling 

I do not know why everyone thinks that the Harry Potter series links to Christmas but I am also one of those people. Maybe it is because everyone wants to have dinner in the Great Hall... Well that is my reason!

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

One deadly weekend. It is the autumn term and Greer MacDonald is struggling to settle into the sixth form at the exclusive St. Aidan the Great boarding school, known to its privileged pupils as S.T.A.G.S. Just when she despairs of making friends Greer receives a mysterious invitation with three words embossed upon on it: huntin' shootin' fishin'. When Greer learns that the invitation is to spend the half term weekend at the country manor of Henry de Warlencourt, the most popular and wealthy boy at S.T.A.G.S., she is as surprised as she is flattered. But when Greer joins the other chosen few at the ancient and sprawling Longcross Hall, she realises that Henry's parents are not at home; the only adults present are a cohort of eerily compliant servants. The student
