About Me

My review requests are open, please send me an email at powisamy@gmail.com, and I will consider requests, and I will reply as soon as possible. 

Hi, I am Amy, a 24-year-old girl from Dagenham (although I now live in Colchester but try to visit London frequently just not in the middle of a pandemic) who enjoys reading books and blogging about them. 

I have graduated from university with a 2.1 in Modern History and have graduated with an MA in History part-time. (I know a bit weird but what can I say I like history!) 

Now that I have a lot more free time, you can find me
 watching YouTube videos, watching films or TV or my job at a popular fried chicken restaurant. I am trying to move on from this job and hope to get a job in publishing. I am really interested in joining as a Rights Assistant or somewhere in Publicity. So if anyone reading this needs someone who is in publishing and who has an opening hit me up!  

In the middle of all of this, I am trying to maintaining a consistent schedule on my blog, which explores my love for books and other things. Since I no longer do my degree, expect a few posts about history and writing to pop up on the odd occasion!

I am a writer who is currently in the middle of writing my first book (and her second. I don't make sense!), I will sometimes post on my writing progress and hope to do so in the future so watch out for that. Also, I am trying to write a new idea that is slow and steady. I have written a lot about my writing journey so far so of course there is going to be a lot more in the journey!

I hope you join me on my blogging journey, which I have been doing for almost 6 years now. (AH!!!!)

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
