Three Hallows Book Club December: Dear Amy Powis (A Dear Evan Hansen Inspired Post)

This post is part of the Three Hallows Book Club that I do with Rachel from RacheLeanne and Alex from Alex Chappell. This month we all buddy read Dear Evan Hansen and are all creating posts surrounding it. For mine, I choose to write an open letter to myself which is what Evan does in the book and gets the plot rolling. So let's get started...



Dear Amy Powis,

This is really weird to say but we are going to do it anyway but today is going to be a good day.

Maybe this is quite weird because it's already 2pm in the day which means that much of it has already happened but I hope that today will still be OK. Not just OK but good. Great? No just good. I can take good for now. 

So this is weird right? It's Christmas. Boxing day when I am writing this but I have just been a mess lately. I mean there is the idea that Christmas is the perfect time of the year but for me this year? This is far from the case. 

I've been anxious for the last couple of weeks and I wish that it would just stop. I have been worrying about so many things that I don't even know where to start. Everything for health-related things to remembering and replaying that one conversation that I had that one time that I regret. Replaying itself over and over and over in my mind barely giving myself a relief. 

I am meant to say that today is going to be the day that is good and I think for the most part it is but I don't know if that's the case. 

I know that I feel better than I did a couple of weeks where I was on the verge of tears over a missed bus but I'm far from perfect. 

I've written loads of these to myself though and I can say that it is going to get better because it always does. It ALWAYS does. That might not be today. It might not even be tomorrow but it will. I know it will. 

So hang on it there. 

Sincerely Me



Dear Evan Hansen

Here is a summary of the book...


From the show's creators comes the groundbreaking novel inspired by the Broadway smash hit Dear Evan Hansen.

Dear Evan Hansen,

Today's going to be an amazing day and here's why...


When a letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief over the loss of their son, he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. He just has to stick to a lie he never meant to tell, that the notoriously troubled Connor Murphy was his secret best friend.

Suddenly, Evan isn't invisible anymore--even to the girl of his dreams. And Connor Murphy's parents, with their beautiful home on the other side of town, have taken him in like he was their own, desperate to know more about their enigmatic son from his closest friend. As Evan gets pulled deeper into their swirl of anger, regret, and confusion, he knows that what he's doing can't be right, but if he's helping people, how wrong can it be?

No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. He's confident. He's a viral phenomenon. Every day is amazing. Until everything is in danger of unraveling and he comes face to face with his greatest obstacle: himself.

A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation.

Thank you for reading and don't forget to check out Alex and Rachel's post. Don't forget to check out next month's theme which I will release next week. 

See you soon,

Amy

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

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 may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female repres
