Hi.

EXAMS ARE OVERRR. WOOO.

That done, I shall be watching LOTS of films and Youtube. One of the recent ones was entitle Across the Universe- perfect for any Beatles fan. :) One of the characters named Lucy, is wonderful, and I shall be photospamming you with her. :)

 She’s a great activist who fights for what she believes in. A great, strong, independant role model. She also looks amazing.

They wear SUCH rad clothes! (Channeling Rookie Mag: http://rookiemag.com/ )

Okay. onto the Feminism.

Recently, I went to a concert called Chime for Change, co-founded by Beyoncé (Who I ADORE) and I made a video about it, here:

Then there’s the site that allows you to personally help charities, called Catapult, which you should all check out here, although I explain about it in the video more. :) : http://www.catapult.org/

And lastly. Feminism. It rules. Just sayin’.

Oh also, My friend and I are Vlogging Every Day in June, so if you wish to see our faces, go hereeeeee: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheTwoEnglishGirls

Sorry for the weird randomness of this post. But I’m happy. And it’s summer. :)

Hi, so although I recently posted, I didn’t update you all on the books I read when I was away, and I read quite a few….. : )

#1

I re-read Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows, in preparation for the upcoming film release. However I’m not sure if that was the best idea as I got really annoyed because they changed a LOT in the film.

#2

I finished Emily of New Moon. It was sweet but I’m not going to read the rest of the series, anyway I prefer Anne Of Green Gables.

#3

Reading Lolita in Tehran. This was very interesting. And it opened up a huge range of books that I still want to read. It’s about this female professor of English Literature in Tehran, Iran and her struggles with daily life (because women were forced to wear the Chador in public). As well as discussing the connections between life in Tehran and, say Daisy Miller by Henry James, and the similiarities and differences of the West. Really thought-provoking.

#4

Othello. Well, I had to read this for my English coursework, however… I loved it! And I think that Shakespeare is just incredibly lovely and it’s a great pleasure reading his brilliant plays…. Sorry about that. : )

#5

How To Be a Woman. Hilarious and brilliant. Written by Caitlan Moran, a journalist who is very funny. It really made me feel good about myself and I would recommend it to everyone. Men included. The book helped me form my own ideas on Feminism, Abortion, Marriage and Children.

# 6

Death and The Penguin, was another funny book although in a completely different way. Darkly humourus; about a man who has a pet penguin called Misha. Who writes obituaries for newspapers before the subjects are dead. I’d already read A matter of Death and Life by Andrey Kurkov and liked it so I decided to read this one as well.

I think that that is it. I’m quite proud of the list. Oh I also brought Alice In Wonderland to read to my mum, but I never got round to it…

I still have a humumgus list of books to read, but I will read ALL!! Anna-Marie shall reign supreme over books!! : ) (Sorry… : )) I think I may post a list up on my blog, if I have time. Or I could create a WHOLE NEW PAGE where I put all the books I have read and will read and slowly cross them off as I do.

Have a lovely weekend,

A-M xx
