Books and Songs #1

So around the internet, there is the idea of matching books and songs which are something that I really like to watch and wanted to do one of myself. So the idea is that you match books to songs where you feel like there is a link. So let's get started...

1. Winter by Marissa Meyer and Castle by Halsey 


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)
          




After reading Winter earlier this year, the themes of the book just fit so well with the song that I can not see them as separate things. I do not want to spoil the book, but the song kind of states the plot of this book so do not listen to the song if you have not read the book. 

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Centuries by Fall Out Boy

         

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)




Every time I see this being done, this song is normally paired up with Harry Potter and although I believe that the series could be linked, the Hunger Games is not one of those books that is going to fade anytime soon. I also imagine in ten years or so, people will still ask if you have read this series. 

3. Dumplin' by Julie Murphy and Confident by Demi Lovato

Dumplin' (Dumplin', #1)





Dumplin' by Julie Murphy is about Williowdean trying to be confident with who she is and this is something that Confident by Demi Lovato promotes which makes these a perfect pairing.  

4. Demon Road by Derek Landy and Drive by Halsey 


Demon Road (Demon Road, #1)






The almost dark nature of the road trip in Demon Road matches perfectly with the dark, almost dystopian aspects of the song which is why I believe them to be a perfect fit.  

5. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows and Warriors by Imagine Dragons


The Orphan Queen (The Orphan Queen, #1)




The book focuses on the main characters trying to gain back the land that they have lost hold off and has revolutionary themes which I think are evident in the song.

6. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky and Landslide by Fleetwood Mac 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower




This is the original "infinite song"  as I like to call it which is in the book instead of Heroes by David Bowie so whenever I hear this song I just think of the book. 

7. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Amsterdam by Imagine Dragons


The Fault in Our Stars






As most of you know, if you have read TFiOS, Hazel and Gus go to Amsterdam and I remember before the film came out everyone wanted this to be on the soundtrack and it was not. However, I still link this song to the book and the journey of Gus and Hazel.

8. Where She Went by Gayle Foreman and Begin Again by Taylor Swift


Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)






If you know the plot of this book, then you will know the connections between the two. I was also going to pair this with Just One Year but alas...

9. Paper Towns by John Green and Suburbia by Troye Sivan 


Paper Towns






Considering the nature of Paper Towns, I think that this song by Troye Sivan sums up the relationship that Margo has with the suburb that she is living in.

10. Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison and Ultraviolet by The Stiff Dylans  


Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1)






This song is from the book to movie adaptation of the book so whenever I hear this song, I jut end up thinking about the book so...

What books would you pair up with songs? 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…
