A-Z of UKYA LGBTQIA Books

So as some of you may know back in January I did a blog post which gave an A-Z of YA Mental Health Books and considering that this month is when London Gay Pride takes place and due to recent events I thought I would do an A-Z of UKYA LGBTQIA books so that you can get some recommendations. In the future, I will probably do the second part due to the amount of recommendations that I have. So let's get started...

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

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.

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.

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!

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
