Recent Rambles: It's time...

This is a blog post that I had hoped to write for a long time but I guess I did not expect to write it in this way. This is weird because I have not told you lovely people what I have actually done. This may not sound like sound like something massive to some of you reading this but I posted my first selfie. OK so let me explain...

Why is this important?

        For the five years that I have had some kind of social media, I have never had a selfie as a profile picture or any picture of myself as a profile picture. This may seem weird but I never felt comfortable in having a picture of myself online. Yes, at the beginning, I was worried about the weird people who could see the picture of me but at 19 was this really something I needed to think about. No in retrospect not really... 
         I have never been part of the "selfie generation" I guess, I have really taken pictures of myself and this is kind of the point. I never really liked the pictures of myself so if I don't like the pictures then why to post them online. So why the change you may be saying. Well funny you should say that...

Why the change?

         I guess I finally feel somewhat comfortable in my own skin. Yes, no profile picture had its benefits, no one can judge you on your appearance and it is solely based on what your opinions are. But I don't personally feel like I need this almost disguise and I am happy to share who I am. I did, however, want the change to be different, a really artsy picture of me where I look so Tumblr but come on this is real life, stuff like that does not happen.
          So some of you may be interested why the picture and what happened so let me explain. I was at having a day out with my Dad and Sister and we went to Madame Tussauds and when a normal person sees a waxwork of R2-D2 you take a picture. So it was from there that was when my profile picture was changed after a pretty spontaneous decision on my part. 

The Girl Behind The Books













So after this, you can see what I look like although you can see from the Google Plus thing on the side of the page. So this is who I am, an acceptable version of me. Although I doubt that I will be taking selfies anytime soon...

I don't really have a comment question but feel free to comments your thoughts of the subject. 

Thank you for reading. 

See you soon, 

Amy

P.S. If you see me at any events feel free to say Hi!

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
