Number 7: Ash by Melinda Lo

AshAnother retelling of Cinderella on this list but this one I have read and I did enjoy it. This one also has a twist on the Cinderella but features a LGBTQ+ characters in this telling. It was enjoyable but I read it a few years ago. 









Number 6: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge 

Cruel BeautyThis is called a Beauty and the Beast retelling mixed with Graceling.

Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)If you didn't tell by the title this is a retelling of Alice In Wonderland but with zombies. Need I say more...











Number 4: A Thousands Nights by E.K. Johnson 

A Thousand NightsThe story of a Thousand Nights is that every day he King gets a new wife however if he doesn't like her she will die. I don't know if the story is similar to the orginial but this one does sound interesting. Another retelling is the Wrath and The Dawn








Number 3: Splintered by A.G Howard

Splintered (Splintered, #1)Yet another Alice In Wonderland retelling but this has a twist involved in which I believe that Wonderland is real. 











Number 2: Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Another Beauty and The Beast retelling but this time with faeries/fey and I am excited to read this. This book has been hyped up by the book bloggers and booktubers so I am scared to read it but hopeful it lives up to the hype...









Number 1: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer

This series is the overall package, the amazing writing, the enjoyable characters, and plots that link directly to fairy tales. Cinder is a faiytale retelling of Cinderella and Scarlet being a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and Cress in a retelling of Rapunzel. Winter is a retelling of Snow White and is released later this year. They are not direct retelling as they have a sci-fi twist. This is one of the only series that I have read on this list and I highly recommend you read this.

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

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…
