Book Unhaul

After the aftermath of YALC, where I bought too many books (book haul coming soon) I needed to have more shelf space so I decided to get rid of some books. Although I see the book unhaul quite often on booktube, I don't think I have seen them regularly on the blog community however I thought I would still tell you what books I am getting rid of. So let's get started...

1. Missing Me by Sophie Mckenzie 

Missing Me (Girl, Missing, #3)Although a Sophie Mckenzie fan, I don't see myself getting to his book very soon. This is the final book in a trilogy and I don't own any of the others and if I really want to read this book in the future then I can get it from the library it's just for now I need the space for other books that I have just purchased. I also got this book for a pound and it was in hardcover and was more of an impulse buy. 





2. Thirteen by Tom Hoyle

ThirteenAlthough I enjoyed this book when I read it, I didn't enjoy the book that much to leave it on my shelf. Also I do not see myself rereading it anytime soon or ever and someone could want this book more than I do. 








3. The Awakening and The Struggle by L.J Smith

The Awakening and The Struggle (The Vampire Diaries, #1-2)Although I enjoyed these two books, I know that I am never going to reread them. I enjoy the TV show so much more than the books and these two books are taking space needed for the books I bought over the weekend. 








4. My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey 


Unlike the other books on this list, I really enjoyed it and do want to read the rest of the series but at this time there are a lot more books that I want to read and if I want to read the other books libraries are there for a reason. 








5.Crave by Melissa Darnell

Crave (The Clann, #1)This is one of the books that I really didn't like and I am not willing to keep. To me this book could be a stand alone and I don't want it anymore. The only reason it has been staying on my bookshelf is the pretty spine and cover. 








6.The Dark Horse by Marcus Sedgewick 

The Dark HorseI only got this book because it was free at Summer in The City, I liked Marcus Sedgewick so I picked up the book but I know I will not read this anytime soon. 









7. White Crow by Marcus Sedgewick 

White CrowI have read this book but like the other books I don't see myself reading it anytime soon.










8. Stealing Phoenix by Joss Stirling

Stealing Phoenix (Benedicts, #2)I have wanted to read Finding Sky by Joss Stirling but I only own the second book in this series and there are newer releases that I would favour over reading this series. 









9. The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

The Kissing BoothIn the hype of last year's YALC I purchased some more UKYA titles and this was one of them. Although I still want to read some of them Say Her Name by James Dawson and Trouble by Non Pratt, this is not one of them. I guess someone will enjoy this more than me. 







10. The Blessed by Tonya Hurley 

The Blessed (The Blessed, #1)
This book did look really good when I first got it, however this is not a stand alone novel and I don't really want to start this new series and I guess someone else will.










11. Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen

Lock and KeyMost people have read a Sarah Dessen book but I haven't and I don't think I will start yet as I have other books that I want to read more compared to this one. 









Have you unhauled any books lately? If so what were they? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon, 

Amy

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

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…
