Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Futuristic Books I Love

It's Tuesday which means that it is time for a Top Ten Tuesday post. This week's topic is ten futuristic books I love. The Top Ten Tuesday feature was created by The Broke and the Bookish and more about it can be found here. Let's get started...

Number 10: Angelfall by Susan Ee

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)So this book has a lot of hype but I could not, not mention this book on this list. It is amazing in a creepy way and the story is really interesting combining both angels in a dystopian setting. The story is so good and I highly recommend it.   









Number 9: Unwind by Neal Shusterman 

Unwind (Unwind, #1)I think out of all the books mentioned on the list, this one is the most frightening by how real it can actually be. The book focuses on teenagers who can be unwound for extra parts. It follows characters that this can happen to and how they rebel. This is definitely one of my favourites.









Number 8: Blood Red Road by Moira Young 

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)This book can be describes as a western set in the future which is a fast-paced read which is definitely one of my favourites which I highly recommend. 











Number 7: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)This book is set in the future when humans are of lower rank to vampires and are seen as blood cattle. It is an interesting read that is amazing and you should read it. I mean dystopia and vampires need I say more... 









Number 6: How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff 

How I Live NowSo this book is set in England as if they were in WWIII so it is really interesting. The writing is different in a good way and it is a book that you will fly through. The characters are ones that you will love and want to succeed throughout the course of the novel. 









Number 5: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)OK so this is a fairytale retelling but it is set in the future so it counts. This is just an amazing series with characters that you will fall in love with and that is good with intertwining the retelling in a scientific setting.   










Number 4: The Host by Stephenie Meyer

The Host (The Host, #1)You shouldn't judge this book by it's author! Just because this was written by the author of Twilight does not mean it is bad, it fact it is really good. Like really good especially for an alien book. It encompasses aliens and romance and is a good read.  









Number 3: Divergent by Veronica Roth 

Divergent (Divergent, #1)How could I not mention this one. It is a great book regardless of your views on a rest of the series and it should definitely be read by many of you if you haven't read this yet. Also don't judge this book on it's adaptation. 










Number 2: The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)This one may be controversial one as I know that a lot of people dislike this book but for me it is a favourite. I love the diversity of characters and I love where the story goes. I also like that the story has limited romance so yeah... I also love James Dashner as an author so...









Number 1: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)What a shock that this is at the top of my list. The Hunger Games is one of my favourite books of all time and was the one book to got me into this genre so of course it is on this list. If you haven't read it yet, I promise you will not regret it.

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…
