One of My Favourite Authors

One of my favourite authors is J.K. Rowling. I love Harry Potter. I remember one of the first books I ever became obsessed with was Harry Potter. It transformed my life and honestly I have learnt so much from it growing. Harry Potter was my escape from the real world and the bullying that was a constant in my life at that point.

The way she wrote transformed the little nook I was reading in into Hogwarts and instead of reading I was following the Trio in their adventures. I really loved that the books made me feel like I was included in something and that I was personally being taken on a journey with the trio on the Hogwarts Express.

I love J.K. Rowling’s writing style, you don’t feel like you’re reading, the words flow easily when you read them and there isn’t any stiffness when you are reading the books which I have found with other readers where it almost becomes a chore to finish the book but with J.K. Rowling this is not the case.

She also helped reading become a cool thing again for children to do and made children want to read books. I was avid reader of Roald Dahl when I was young regardless but then I read Harry Potter and I just remember wanting to reread it again and again. It was the first time I was excited for the next book to come out.

This is why J.K. Rowling is one of my favourite Authors.

Gryffindor with Anxiety

I am a Gryffindor. I did the Pottermore quiz and got Gryffindor.

Being a Gryffindor means a lot to me because I used to want to be brave and courageous and wanted to stick up for myself and others. I have anxiety which makes me worry more than I should about everything and stops me from doing so many things but everyday and every time there’s something that scares me I have to push myself to do it. I am brave every time I get myself up and out of the house and every time I do something that scares me that maybe other people would have no problem doing.

Growing up I didn’t feel like the Gryffindor I was but then I realised just how like a Gryffindor I was. I always stick up for my friends and myself, I’m not afraid to tell the truth or tell someone how I feel about them. I’m not afraid to do things that scare me like learning to drive or going to places I’ve never been, or going somewhere on holiday with family and not knowing where exactly it is. I even got over my fear of the dark.

Top Five Favourite Books

  1. Harry Potter – This is a series that is very close to my heart. I’ve been reading Harry Potter for as long as I can remember and it made me an avid reader at a young age. My love for Harry Potter no other book can match no matter how hard they try. It was the first book I got really excited about and became obsessed with and am still obsessed with. This is a book that I will always come back to and will always welcome me home.
  2. You’re Never Weird on the Internet – This is a book I bought because my favourite actress Felicia Day wrote it. I loved her on Supernatural and thought her character Charlie was amazing. I was obsessed by things she had created and had just finished watching The Guild. This book was everything I wanted it to be and more. I read it so quickly and before I knew I had also bought the audio book which is amazing and well worth it!
  3. Mrs Pepperpot stories – The Mrs Pepperpot stories were a collection of stories about an old woman who would shrink down to the size of a pepper pot, the trouble it got her into and her adventure to get home or sort it out. I used to read these all the time with my granny and these stories remind me of my childhood so much I always used to read them and they were my mums old books from when she was a child which brought us closer when I was young.
  4. The Famous Five Books – my granny lent me one of her famous five books and I loved them so much. This was a book that my granny loved to read and then my mum, auntie and uncle so it was book I could share with them. The adventures that the famous five went on always inspired me to go on adventures of my own even if it was just around the park with my packed lunch. These books are amazing and perfect for children, I definitely think that most children should read them if they are given the chance I am so glad I got to read them. Enid Blyton is an amazing author and also wrote Noddy,  The Secret six, The magic faraway tree, Malory Towers, and St Clare’s.
  5. The Fangirl Life – This is about a couple of different books but the Fangirl life is the first book that started off my fangirl self help books. Fangirl life is about understanding the fangirl but also using that to help yourself. For example; you favourite female actress or WCW and why she is your favourite, then what characteristics does she have, what do you have that is the same and what would you like to have etc. True face is another book which is amazing and is all about discovering your true face which you have hidden throughout your life due to wearing a mask of who you’re supposed to be and not who you are. The book is all about breaking down that mask, discovering your true face and then how to wear your true face. The fangirl’s guide to the galaxy is a great book for any fangirl or fan of any gender identification. This is a guide to the fandom life such as; definition of fangirl speak, different types of fangirl depending on fandom, and also where to find other fans in real life. These books make me feel proud to be who I am but also help me to improve and help myself where I need it and to be healthier mentally especially The fangirl life.

These are five (although the fifth one was three books) of my favourite books that I am sharing with you and why I love them so much that they are a part of my Top 5 favourite books. I hope this helps you find a new book to read and makes you want to share your favourite books with me below.

Top Five Favourite Female Actors

Emma Watson – I love the Harry Potter films and I absolutely adored Hermione. Emma Watson was my favourite actress before I even realised it. She is a great role model, she has done amazing work for heforshe etc. She is great at acting and she’s good at singing. She’s just amazing.

Felicia Day – I love The guild and also her character on supernatural. She is an amazing woman who proves that’s you can make it if you keep trying and to not let being a woman change any of that. She also a massive geek and she helped me to be proud of who I am.

Amy Poehler – I absolutely loved Parks and Recreation, Amy poehler was an amazing actress in this and I fell in love with her character Leslie Knope. She’s funny but also was a fantastic role model in the show.

Sarah Michelle Gellar – I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Buffy was a strong independent woman who was so badass and I loved her growing up she was fierce and I wanted to be like her. I also loved her in Scooby-Doo she managed to make Daphne not a damsel in distress but a black belt and resourceful with her make up in that cage and getting them all out safely. She doesn’t get enough credit for the characters she played and she is a really nice genuine actress.

Reese Witherspoon – I loved Legally Blonde both the musical and the film. I thought that Reese brought Elle Woods to us in a perfect way. I just love that she was portrayed as a typical blonde hot girl at first and then we find out that she is smart and amazing and fantastic around the same time she does herself. I also love in the second film that she fights hard and finds away to fight animal rights for bruiser while staying true to herself. Her character was also a very strong and independent woman who wouldn’t back down from what she knew was right and also had good taste in fashion because why can’t you have both?
