Announcement: 12 (or so) Days of Blogmas

After last year, when I decided to bring back Blogmas, I wanted to do it again as it is safe to say that I was doing so well with the blog earlier in the year, but recently, well, I've been lacking. Also, it's that time of the year for wrap-ups and favourite books I wanted to share. As per usual, there is quite a lot, and I want to write and hype my favourite books of the year as I don't do that much any more and I should because a lot f them are underhyped. 

I think that this year has not been the one for anyone. It is safe to say that I have been swamped this year balancing university and work so blogging kind of went to the wayside and let's just say now I'm back. Hopefully! (I will say more tomorrow.)

Due to the changes that have happened this year in my life and the world, I have a lot of thoughts in my brain that I want to get out and so many ideas that I want to write about that have just stayed in my drafts. This is the opportunity to do all of the ideas so I'm not sure how long this will go on for as I have to admit I haven't planned it so we will see. 

There is be a variety of posts from favourite books of the year, to essays, to book reviews so join the ride! Hopefully, I will be successful!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I'm sorry if the year is not the one for you, but hopefully, 2021 will be a better year, and we get a better Christmas and time for family. 


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
