My Virtual Bookshelves

There is a lot of discussion in the book community around bookshelves, and often the discussion is around physical books bit e-books are forgotten in it.

The main idea that many readers agree with us that physical books are superior to ebooks.

Up until a couple of years ago, I was the same, but this had changed. I saw myself being drawn to e-books because I wanted to clean my Netgalley TBR. OK, this did not happen, but I did find myself drawn to them.

This is because I really do a lot of reading at might and as the kindle has a light in it, I can read with the light off. Also, I get really tired at night, and I think I can do more of it by reading on my kindle. I think it is also a way of keeping all of my books together when I don't want it to take space on my shelf, but I don't want to get rid of it completely.

Don't get me wrong, I love a good physical book, and I think for some reading experiences, I want that experience, but I do like the virtual one for others. This is also the case for audiobooks which I love to listen to, and they can add a whole different dimension to the reading experience due to the narrator styles.

Basically, all reading types are great even if you don't even have a bookshelf with books on it. All reader experiences are valid, and any way of consuming books is valid. Of course, audiobooks are reading. These are also important for disabled readers as sometimes I really don't want to hold a book at night and are great for when I am ironing.

Basically, you do you, and we can all read and fangirl about books together. 

What do your bookshelves look like? Let me know in the comments below.

See you soon,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

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
