Readathon Wrap Up: #SundayYAthon

So over the last week, I have taken part in two readathons which ran from the 28th August to 1st September which is #SundayYAthon. The SundayYAthon had three challenges which can be picked from the following picture. My TBR was posted on Twitter so you can see that here: 

So let's get started to see my progress...

I ended up reading 4 books as part of the readathon but only three of those books were on my TBR.
The first book that I finished was A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin which counted for the free choice feature of the readathon. I had already read over 400 pages before the readathon but I decided that I really wanted to finish it so thus the first book was completed. I really enjoyed A Game of Thrones although it was a little bit out of my comfort zone and I liked it so much that I am currently reading A Clash of Kings.  










After I finished A Game of Thrones, I moved on to Monstress which is a graphic novel set in 1900s China with a POC main protagonist which counted as a diverse read. I also really enjoyed this one, giving it 4 stars and for a fantasy graphic novel, I think the world building was done well. To be honest, I am going to love any book that has talking cats anyway so...











The third book that I read was Wing Jones by Katherine Webber which has been a book that was been highly praised since its release in January which is why it completed by Recommended Read category. Again I really enjoyed Wing Jones especially seeing her character develop as a person and the description of all the food in the book that I just want to eat. All of the characters were also well developed and just so likeable so like everyone else recommended me to read Wing Jones, I will now recommend it to you. 








The fourth and final book that I completed for the readathon was Moonrise by Sarah Crossan which comes out this week on Thursday. Moonrise is an emotional story about Jo whose brother is on death row in America which as you can guess makes a gripping story and you should see a review of this book soon on my blog. 












So that is my Wrap Up of #Sundayyathon. What did you read this weekend? Did you take part in a readathon last week?

See you soon, 

Amy

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
