Books That Made Me: World Book Day Inspired Post

Books are the way to new worlds. 
They allow us to experience anything 
And everything that we want to do in the world. 
They are the way to worlds that we didn't even know existed 
But we don't know what to do without. 
Allow us to open doors in this world
That change us, make us learn, 
Allow us to know that anything is possible 
If only we believe.
Books are escapism when we need them the most. 
Books can change our lives, for better. 
Books make us better people. 
They made us, well us. 
Here are the books that made me...



Twilight (Twilight, #1)Book One: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

This book opened the door to a new world that I didn't know existent. It opened the door to YA and I haven't looked back...







Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1)Book Two: Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison 

This book opened the door to a world I already knew existent but not in fiction. It taught me that life can be messy and embarrassing and that that's OK and the female friendships rule!





The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Book Three: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

This book opened the door to a world of fun and fans and films. It changed my life and stained my heart, I would not be the same person without this book. 








Star Girl (Stargirl #1)Book Four: Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

This book illustrates that sometimes you make mistakes and that you have the chance to correct them. That to kind is always the best route. 









Book Five: The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling 


This book opened a door to a magical land of witches, wizards, dragons and everything that my imaginations wanted and I haven't left since. 





Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club, #1)Book Six: Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne

This book opened my mind and told me that it's OK not to be normal and that what is going on in your brain is as important as what goes on the inside. 








All of the AboveBook Seven: All Of The Above by Juno Dawson

This book was the first time that I saw a part of myself in a book and showed me how important representations is. 












Book Eight: Radio Silence by Alice Oseman 

This book taught me that sometimes university can be shit and that's OK and that friendship will always help you through it. 







So this was a different kind of post and was inspired by the YALC of the same name. I had fun writing this post as I have definitely been feeling in a writing mood the last couple of days. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and I will 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

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
