Mid Year Freak Out Tag

OK so the Mid-Year Freak Out Tag has been doing the rounds and I thought that I would add mine to the world. This tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildfire and I have linked her original video here.

So let's get started...

1. Best book you've read this year so far?


Street Song
Street Song by Sheena Wilkinson- This book was definitely a raw YA story that touched on issues that are not often mentioned in YA so it was therefore quite special to me and will probably make my favourites list. 














2. Best sequel you've read this year so far

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #2)For this, I have chosen Hollow City by Ransom Riggs because there was so much character development in this book that it made it very special.

















3. New releases you haven't read yet but want to.

ReleaseRelease by Patrick Ness- I love Patrick Ness and have had it since it was released (no pun intended) but I haven't had time so hopefully, I will read it soon.















4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
Turtles All the Way Down

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green- IT'S A NEW JOHN GREEN BOOK!















5. Biggest Disappointment

Milk and HoneyMilk and Honey by Rupi Kaur- There is so much hype around this book and it just did not live up to the hype for me. 















6. Biggest Surprise 

We Come ApartWe Come Apart- It's not that I was expecting this to be terrible but I wasn't expecting to start and finish this book on the last night. 















7. Favourite new author


Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1)
Laini Taylor- She is just great and her writing is so beautiful!
















8. Newest fictional crush

9. Newest favourite character

America #1America from the Marvel comics- I do really like her character and I am very happy that she has her own series!















10. Book that made you cry 

I don't really have an answer for this question so here is a cat gif...




11. A book that made you happy.

Weird Things Customers Say in BookshopsWeird Things Customers Say in Bookshops- it made me laugh. 

















12. Favourite book to film adaptation you saw this year.

Image result for nick and norah infinite playlistNick & Norah's Infinite Playlist- Although I did not really like the book, I found the film to be a very good adaptation that probably translated better in a film than it did in book form. 














13. Favourite review you've written this year

Maybe my Silver Stars review just because I love the Soldier Girls series so anything that allows me to promote how good this series is good!

14. Most beautiful book you've bought so far this year

Caraval (Caraval, #1)
I mean come on...

















15. What books do you need to read by the end of this year?

Truth or DareProbably Truth or Dare by Non Pratt as I have heard so many good things about it. 
















OK, so that's it. What are some of your favourite books of the year? Leave them in the comments below.

See you soon, 

Amy

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…
