Top 5 Wednesday: Gateway Books

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five gateway books. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the Goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey but is currently being curated, by Samantha. I haven't done this for a while so this will be interesting but anyway, let’s get started…

Number 5: The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

The Book ThiefThis book is a great way to get into to almost adult fiction. It has been a hugely popular book for a while now on booktube but in general after a film was made a couple of years ago. It is also one of my favourite books so is worth a read!









Number 4: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)This book is often considered to be both YA and adult so therefore it is a good gateway book especially if you really fantasy books.










Number 3: The Opposite Loneliness by Marina Keegan

The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and StoriesBeing a combination of non-fiction and fiction stories, The Opposite of Loneliness is a wonderful book that deserves to be read by everyone and is just a great book. It has a youthful tone which definitely bridges the gap between adult and YA.








Number 2: Nimona by Noelle Stephenson

NimonaI love this graphic novel and it often has a YA writing style that is quite different to others of this genre so is great for those who want to try a new genre.









Number 1: The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger

The Catcher in the RyeWhen I first started to read this book, I honest thought that it has a similar tone to those of John Green so is the perfect book for anyone who wants to read more classics.

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.

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.

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
