Anti-TBR Tag

Book Tags have always been a staple in the book community, but sometimes there are not a lot of them about, or they just are not as popular. Over the last couple of months, I have seen the Anti-TBR Tag going around Booktube so I thought I would give it ago. The tag was created by Nicole & Her Books so feel free to check out her channel. Let's get started with the tag...

1. A popular book EVERYONE loves that you have no interest in reading? 

Any romance book, but the one that I am really think about is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. I am just not interested in anything that mentions sex and I just don't want to read about this type of fey. 

2. A classic book (or author) you don't have an interest in reading?

I own books by Jane Austen but after reading Pride & Prejudice, I don't really have any interest in reading any more of her books. I just think that Jane Austen is for me and that's OK. 

3. An author whose book you have no interest in reading? 

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie who has also been a transphobe in  her views. Her books are also really long and I am just never really want to pick them up. But mainly we don't support transphobes on this blog. 

3.2 A problematic author whose books you have no interest in reading? 

The author that must not be named. (The way that I have written it can give you who it is.) We support trans rights on this blog, not transphobes. 

4. An author you have read a couple of books from & have decided their books are not for you?

So I grew up on Holly Bourne's books and every time she had a new release I got really excited and now I don't as much. I think that I am just growing out of her YA books but I will definitely try to read her adult stuff. 

5. A genre you have no interest in OR a genre you tried to get into & couldn't?

So I'm not that interested in romance book, especially like smutty books. I am not interest in sex in real life and am not interest to read about it in books too. I have tried a couple of books but I can't get past some of the language. I understand why people like it but it is just not for me.

6. A book you have bought but will never read?


The Lord Of The Rings trilogy. I have bought it on multiple occasions. I have tried to read it on a couple of times but I just can't get into it. I do have an audiobook so I think the only way that I will read it is if I am forced. 

7. A series you have no interest in reading OR a series you started & have dnf'ed?

I have really liked the original Miss Peregrine's series but I just don't think that I will read the new series. This might change when I finally get to Library Of Souls but for now I am not interested. 

8. A new release you have no interest in reading?  


Yolk by Mary H.K. Choi as I know that it has to do with a cancer diagnosis which I don't feel comfortable reading about now. The book so seem like a good premise so hopefully I will feel comfortable reading it soon. 

What books are on your Anti-TBR? Let me know in the comments. 

See you soon, 

Amy

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 repres

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh. 21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change. But the thing is it didn't. I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same. Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019. 2019 is such a middling year for
