The Seven Deadly Sins Tag

So as per on a Friday I do a tag. This week it is the seven deadly sins tag. I was tagged by Zhana from Confessions of an addict and she has a great blog so go check her out. So let's get started with the questions...


 1. Greed - What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter #1)How I Live NowI have a couple of inexpensive books as I have received books for 10p from a library book sale. One of them was a copy of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. The most expensive is probably my illustrated edition of Harry Potter which is meant to cost £30 although I know my Mum only paid £15 for it for my birthday.  






2. Wrath - What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5)
Sarah J. Maas- I wouldn't say it is a love/hate relationship but it is a love/over-hyped relationship. I really liked the Assassin's Blade but I thought that Throne of Glass was just meh. I guess I will have to carry on with this series to see...










3. Gluttony - What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame?

The Book ThiefI am not a big rereader so I don't know if I have any answer to this. However I do really want to reread the Book Thief over and over so yeah...










4. Sloth - What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin- I wonder why... 












5. Pride - What book do you talk about most in order to sound like an intellectual reader?

The Catcher in the RyeI don't really brag about the books that I read because I don't think I tend to read books that I make me sound like an intellectual reader. Should I do it right now because I am currently reading a Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger. 









6. Lust - What attributes do you find attractive in male characters?

A good sense of humour... That is literally all I have got...

7. Envy - What book would you most like to receive as a gift?

I don't really get books as gifts but as longer as it is a book that I don't already have then it will be fine.

As per a good tag, I don't tend to tag people but if you want to do it feel free. 

Have you done this tag? Leave your links 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…
