Why your Hogwarts house does not matter/ Why we are all divergent

So this blog post has been a long time coming and I have wanted to write this post for the longest time. So this post will come in two parts:

1. Why your Hogwarts house does not matter
2. Why we are all divergent 

So let's get started with the first part...

Why your Hogwarts house does not matter

So when you see this post title you may think that I have gone slightly mad but it terms of a new Pottermore quiz, I say new it is not that new anymore, it is quite relevant. When the Pottermore test resurfaced, a couple of months, my twitter feed went crazy when people discovered they were no longer in the same Hogwarts house. So was I one of these people? No, now I am going to tell you why. I am a Hufflepuff, I know I am a Hufflepuff so when I took the test again I looked for the answers that were most Hufflepuff in nature. But does this mean I should be in Hufflepuff? No, at the end of the day the Pottermore test is an algorithm, it's decisions are universal for everyone, meaning that specific answers will have consequences and it can not tell you what you know to be true inside. To be honest, this means that I can just beat a computer and any quiz for that matter, and even though this could mean I am slightly a Ravenclaw, we can all be more than one house, I mean even Harry Potter could be in Slytherin it is just that he did not want to be. So to conclude, even if you did not get your ideal house on Pottermore, this does not stop you being the house that you want to be and that you no one is completely one house. 

House Pride for the win!

Why we are all divergent 

Most of us know the story of Divergent, a girl fits out of the crowd because she fits more than one faction. Similarly to Harry Potter, the whole "What faction would you be in" has risen from the story. But this is weird because the whole point of the story is people who only fit one faction are considering to be unnormal. So thinking about this does this not mean that we are not all divergent. We all are special in our own unique way having different qualities. So thinking about this, we all having qualities which means that we are not just one thing. 

So, go be your special divergent self!  

Do you agree with me? Do you change Hogwarts house than on Pottermore? Do you think we are all divergent? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon and thank you for reading,

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...

Diversity Bingo 2017

To continue with my aim of reading diversely, I decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to do the Diversity Bingo Challenge. The idea of this being to read 36 books and complete the bingo-like sheet with the aim being to read as much diverse fiction as possible. Like a lot of people in the bookish community, I wanted to continue reading more diverse books and thought this would be the way to do it. This post is to update myself and others on my progress in this challenge so if you are looking for recommendations in what to read please look here, herehere and here. So let's get started...
