Wreck This Journal #1

Since the summer I have had a Wreck This Journal after Penguin Platform introduced the "#wreckthissummer" competition. This allowed me to explore the activities in the Wreck This Journal and I found out that I really liked doing it. After the summer, I neglected the journal but in the last couple of weeks I found that I have definitely been more excited to complete it. I thought that because I liked doing it that I would update my progress of the journal although it is a work in progress. If you do not like this post, please let me know in the comments below and I know not to do another one again. So let's get started...

The Cover:


Being a journal, I thought that I would add album covers because they give a sense of the music that I like. Also I thought it would really tumblr and I like that...









The inside page: 


I think one of the tasks was to do something with this page so I tried to made it like the outside cover by the line paper and sticking the wreck this journal writing on it. People look shocked when they see this but you are meant to wreck it. You can also see I coloured the page behind it orange and pink and I made my own acknowledgements. 




Instructions Page:


Although this is not a real page, I just tried to make this page fun by adding colour. I have to admit that my colouring is not the best on this page but it was the first one I did. 










Add your own pages 


The materials page is slightly incomplete as I haven't added a picture or doodle to each word but I like the other page with the adding your own numbers. Mine is not as artsy as other people's but it is quite simple so... I also remember the numbers taking so long to do and I am pretty sure that I did some of them wrong. 




Crack the Spine and Leave This Page Blank On Purpose


The crack the spine page represents the reader's problems with cracking the spine and the bad things about it. The leave this page blank on purpose and I just wanted to put something on the page.








Pour, Spill, Drip, Spit, Fling your coffee here


On the left I tried to incorporate the coffee with the phrase "She likes cold coffee in the morning" which is from an Ed Sheeran song. This is also on coffee-soaked paper. This is also followed by a mug where the coffee has been used and a cup stain on the paper. The right page is random being purple paint and another cup of coffee. 





Poke Holes In This Pages Using A Pencil 


The balloons are where the holes were made but I did want to do something different so this is what came from it. 











Draw Fat Lines and Thin 


So the lines are drawn in order from thinnest to thickest however I have the wave in the middle that breaks this and I like it. The page on the left is one of my favourite quotes from Harry Potter and I really like that page. 







This page is for fingerprints 


As you can see I made a rainbow from my fingerprints and it did take a long time however I did get the result that I wanted so it was worth it.










Colour This Entire Page 

I didn't really know what to do on this page so I just tried to fling paints at the page with a toothbrush. I like how the effects happened. The words on the page are lyrics from Colors by Halsey.








Press Leaves and other found things 


The way this page happened was quite spontaneous as I already had the pressed flower- it's a long story- and I was thinking about the All The Bright Places and I knew there was a flower on the cover so this happened. I did enjoy All The Bright Places when I read it.







 Write One Word Over and Over

This is one of my favourite pages with the word "always" being written all over and the deathly hallows being made in the middle. 










Cover this page using only office supplies 

I used sticky notes and sticky tabs to create a flower and it's background. Not sure if they are office supplies but they are school supplies so.... 










Use this an a test page 


This page is literally just testing pens.... 












Make a Sudden, Destructive Movement with the Journal

So with this page of the journal I ripped it and made a hole with a bullet hole and there covered them with plasters/band-aids. This then meant that I had lyrics from Bad Blood by Taylor Swift. 








Have you done the Wreck This Journal? What did you think of my efforts? Leave them 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.

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…
