Happy Homo Book Club

top 5 wednesday - unlikeableprotags

This week’s T5W prompt was “‘Unlikeable’ protagonists – People always tear down “unlikeable” protagonists. But tell us the ones you pulled for!” It turns out that this was actually quite a challenge and we are not ashamed to admit we thought about taking the easy way out several times. However, after doing a little bit of digging into who is thought of as unlikeable characters by others, we found some opinions we definitely disagree with.

Eurovision 2017

So, in the spirit of last minute blogging (which is my life at the moment) and in honour of Eurovision 2017 starting in half an hour, I thought it would be cool to do a quick run down of some of my favourite Eurovision songs. I had planned to do an entire Eurovision blog post but sadly the depression demon reared it’s ugly head today, but hopefully these few song recommendations will do to get you all in the Eurovision mood!

These are in no particular order because I simply cannot choose between them!:

  1. UKRAINE – Ruslana: Wild Dances (one of my allllllll time favourites)

2. LATVIA – Aminata: Love Injected (still gives me complete goosebumps)

3. TURKEY – Sertab Erener: Everyway that I can (again, one of my all time favourites and earliest Eurovision memories)

4. DENMARK – Emmelie De Forest: Only Teardrops

5. SWEDEN – Loreen: Euphoria (Come on, how can you not?)

6. SWEDISH HOSTS – Love love peace peace (I don’t think I’ve ever seen the internet break so much before)

7. And of course, last years winner UKRAINE: Jamala – 1944 (which still continues to make me speechless)


So with only 15 minutes to go, get ready for the annual taking over of the internet, complete chaos and prepare for Britain to get the heck booed out of them this year!
