Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Want To Read By The End of This Year

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books with disappointing eye candy. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the Goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey but is currently being curated, by Samantha. I haven't done this for a while so this will be interesting but anyway, let’s get started…


Number 5: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)After really enjoying the Bone Season last year, I was really excited about the sequel and currently have the third book on preorder which means that I kind of have to read it before March next year. This book is quite big though so I am worried that it will take a long time to read but I can not wait to see where the story goes.







Number 4: The Memory Book by Lara Avery

The Memory BookAfter receiving a proof of this book at YALC, I did not really know much about but on a whim, I started to read it to find that this was a book that I know I will enjoy. However, I have been in a bit of a reading slump so I need to finish those books before I get to this one.








Number 3: Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield

Paper ButterfliesSo after taking part in the #YATakeover last weekend I realised that many people really loved Paper Butterflies. This seems like a deeply enjoyable and important read and I have been told that it will make me cry. We will see about that...









Number 2: Panther by David Owen 

PantherI have wanted to read this book for the longest time. It has been one that I have started but have just put back down again so that I can read something else. This isn't a representation of the fact that the book is bad, it's just that I'm bad in the book that I choose to start and not finish. 








Number 1: Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and PrejudiceThis is one of the books that I am currently reading but I am so desperate to finish this right now. I need to read and finish Pride and Prejudice!










What books do you want to finish before the end of the year? 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…
