The Extraordinary Means Book Tag


So I am currently reading Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider and knew there was a book tag about this on YouTube created by the author herself and thought it would be a good idea to do it. You can view it here. Here are the questions…









1. I would give up the Internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book…
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins seems like an obvious choice for me, I’ve loved this book since I first read it and I think I can live without the Internet, I mean I still have books.














2. I would give up pizza for a year if it meant I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride…

This would have to be John Green, I mean I love pizza but it’s John Green! He is one of my favourite author’s and I would love to talk him about his books, Harry Potter and Nerdfighteria as well as life in general. I just hope I don’t have a Van Houten moment.  


3. I would sit through a thousand hours of commercials if it would ensure that Hollywood made this book into a movie…

Unwind by Neal Shusterman, this movie has been in pre-production for years and it is a book that I love dearly and that should be seen by many people. I would watch a thousand hours of commercials just to know the film was casting or filming.










4. I would never read a new book again if it meant I could live inside this book.

.

The Harry Potter Universe and Hogwarts would be an obvious choice for many including myself. Come on who wouldn’t want to go to Hogwarts.











5. I would let my Google search history be made public if it meant I could be best friends with this author...

Robyn Schneider because after reading Severed Heads Broken Hearts (The Beginning of Everything in the US) I fell in love with her characters and her novel and it was one of my favourite books of 2013. It also has many nerdy references and I am sure we will have much in common, I don’t think I have much to hide anyway…

6. I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if it meant I could date this book character in real life...

For me it has to be Simon Lewis from the Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare as he was by far my favourite character in this series although I do like him with Isabella. I would probably donate all of my stuff just to be friends with him.










I hope you enjoyed this blog post, if you have answers to the questions please leave them in the comments below 


See you soon

1 Year Blogging Anniversary and Giveaway (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so 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 Thief by Marcus Zusak- No book that I have read in the last two years seems to surpass how much I love this book but I am not saying that the books that I have read after this one are bad I just like this one a bit more...










Q2) What book do you hope to re…

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 representation…
