Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Books of the Year

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books of the year however I have already done this post which you can see here. Instead I am going to do my most disappointing books of the year because I feel like I have a few of them to talk about. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…


Number 5: Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)I know... I know... In my opinion, the Throne of Glass series is really hype up and I was expecting to read some really amazing book but I feel like I didn't. I did not really Celaena in the book however I have started to read some of The Assassin's Blade and I like her character more and do want to carry on with this series. I also hear it get's better? 






Number 4: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi 

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)This is one that has been super hyped when I read it back in January and I thought I would be something I really enjoyed. 
But I didn't...
I don't really love the characters except Kenji and Juliette and Adam are really annoying. I do want to finish this series and only have ignite Me left.  






Number 3: Me, and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Me and Earl and the Dying GirlThis was another one that was really hyped up but guess what, I did not like it. I did not like Greg's character and that let down the book. I did like this one but not as much as I though I would. I have not seen the film yet but it looks better than the book. Fingers crossed...








Number 2: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn

Nick & Norah's Infinite PlaylistAfter reading Dash and Lily's Book of Dares last year and I thinking it was a really great book I thought that I would enjoy other books that they wrote together however this was not the case. This book is only 240 or so pages but it took me so long to read as I did not really like it at all. I did like the characters and the setting of New York but I did not love it. 






Number 1: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke UpThis book is the favourite of a blogger/youtuber that I follow and we tend to like similar books however I did not like this book. I spent most of the book thinking that they should of broken up because the main guy character was so horrible that I would have broken up with him and can understand why she did. This had taken me such a long time to read because I really disliked. The illustrations were nice and I enjoyed the writing but overall I really disliked this book and unhauled it. 





What were your favourite books of the year? Were there books that disappointed you?   
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…
