4 Year Blog Anniversary!

So on the 15th June, it was my four year blog anniversary which is crazy to me because it does not feel that long but I guess looking where I have come from stuff has changed massively in my life. I feel like in the last year I have managed to do some great things on my blog especially the Three Hallows Book Club which I do with Alex and Rachel, but I feel like I have disconnected with a lot of the community in the most part. I might write something about this soon but this is definitely something that I would like to improve on!

Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...


Q1) Favourite Book

The Book ThiefThe Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- OK so this one hasn't changed. A book still has not beaten how I feel about this book. I don't think it will ever be beaten though but I would love to reread it soon.






Q2) What book do you hope to read in the next 
year?
Muse of Nightmares (Strange the Dreamer, #2)
It's funny because of my answer last year was the Northern Lights which I am finally reading but my answer will be Muse Of Nightmares by Laini Taylor as I really loved the first book!







Q3) Most anticipated read? 

Let’s Call It a Doomsday
Let's Call It Doomsday by Katie Henry- I loved Heretics Anonymous so I can't wait to read her next book. I am also really lucky to have an ARC so hopefully, I can read it soon!






Q4) Which topic would you most like to write about on the blog within the next year?

I would love to write more fiction or just creative writing on my blog I guess. 


Q5) Favourite Blog Post?

I really do like my Dear Amy Powis post as it means a lot to me. 



Q6) Book you hate?
The November Criminals
I dislike a lot of negative things about books but I can not support a book that has Holocaust jokes and this is the November Criminals by Sam Munson so you can guess why I hate this book... This was my answer for last year as well and I just haven't read that many really bad books so it stays!





Q7) Which author do you want to meet and why?

John Green- I love John Green. I will probably never meet him but I really want to. Again this is the same answer as last year but I love the guy in a really platonic and admiration kind of way. I also mean Hank this year so I want to go two for two on the Green brothers. 




Northern Lights (His Dark Materials, #1)
Q8) Current read?

Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman- I am finally reading this one and I do quite enjoy it although I would say that the start was very slow.





Q9) Next on your TBR?


I have been thinking about this for the last like five minutes and I don't really know. I have a lot that I am really excited about so it could be anything.


Q10) What is next for your blog?

Onwards and Upwards I hope!! I would also like to upload more regularly and to engage more with the book community!


So that's it! I still can't believe that I have been blogging for so long and hope to see you all next year!

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
