In Delirium the chapter headers are accompanied by quotes that relate to the story, giving examples of why the society is like it is allowing the reader to give context to the dystopian future. It also has great typography and the addition of birds is a nice touch. 



Number 4-All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven





In All the Bright Places, the chapter headings are used as a way of see the development of the characters over the course of the novel especially the way it is used for Violet, and are quite effective in this hence the number 4 spot.

Number 3- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

In the Iron Fey series and The Iron King, the chapter headings are used to give an insight to the chapter’s contents without being too explicit in what is happening. It also contain a gorgeous detail that matches the cover.


Number 2- The Book Thief By Markus Zusak


 In the Book Thief, the chapter headings are used to see what is included in the next chapter and has beautiful typography that make it quite interesting and adds to what is a really great book.

  Number 1- Remix by Non Pratt


Remix is set at a fictional festival so it is used to good effect, the fact that the chapter headings are song titles for example The Fall out Boy song thnks fr th mmrs. Although I have not read the book I feel that the songs would add to the theme of the book quite well.

 Honourable Mentions

-     Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- Cath the main character is a fan fiction writer and both the book she writes fan fiction about and her own fan fiction is used effectively in this book.

-      Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews- The chapter headings are equally as funny as the book itself and reflect Greg’s personality also the design is also very nice.  

-      Unwind by Neal Shusterman- The book uses extracts from today’s society and the dystopian society within relating it to the book's content, both Unwind and Delirium do this effectively in their headings.   

-      City of Heavenly Fire and the rest of the TMI series by Cassandra Clare- Cassandra Clare used chapter headings as a way of a vague description of the chapter but does them in her own unique way. 

What are your favourite chapter headings? Leave them in the comments below.

See you soon

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…
