⚡️Harry Potter Book Tag⚡️

I’ve seen this tag on a few blogs now and I thought it was very fitting for this month since I’m currently in the middle of the NEWTs Magical Readathon! Since the books came out I have been an avid Harry Potter fan and when I saw this tag I knew I had to give it a go! There are definitely spoilers if you are one of the few who haven’t read this series, I would suggest not reading on!

Favourite Book

My favourite Harry Potter book is definitely The Deathly Hallows. Just having the whole story coming together and weaving into the amazing finale that shook me to the core when I first read it has really made this book cemented as my favourite in my heart!

9780747591054

Favourite Movie

Definitely Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!  It was whimsical and magical and everything that I wanted, the series just went downhill from there for me.

Least favourite book

Would have to be Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix… Just the way that Dumbledore treated Harry and how angsty he was and Dolores bringing down the joy and wonder of Hogwarts and how everything inevitably ended up with Sirius, just dampened me feelings on this one!

17713560

Part of the books/movies that made you cry

The death of Dumbledore! When I first read this scene in The Half Blood Prince I had to put the book down for a good few weeks just to process what happened.

Favourite character

I honestly don’t have one in particular; I would say the trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione are definitely my favourites!

CluelessHotHyracotherium-small

What would your Patronus be?

My first thought was a fox

If you could have the Resurrection Stone, the Invisibility Cloak, or the Elder Wand, which one would you choose?

Definitely the invisibility cloak … I would put that to good use!

tumblr_n8q6r06NT11qeijvdo1_250

What house would you be in?

I initially thought I would be a Ravenclaw or Slytherin but I was sorted into Gryffindor!

If you could meet any member of the cast, who would it be?

Rupert Grint or Tom Felton!!

sourcebc8b93b7a3a8f30f37b1195182f12d82

If you were on the Quidditch team, what position would you play?

A chaser or a seeker!

Were you happy with the ending?

I thought it was honestly perfect, beyond my expectations!

How much does Harry Potter mean to you?

This was the series that propelled me into reading! It just has so much nostalgia attached to it and I will forever love this series and continue to reread it over and over again!

Pokemon Book Tag (Gotta Read Em All)

I’ve always loved Pokémon! Every time a new game comes out I have to buy it. My nephew just recently got very invested in Pokémon cards which I was low-key proud of, and I took him to watch Detective Pikachu which is now his favourite movie EVER! So when I saw this tag I knew I had to give it a go!

Mid Year Freak Out Book Tag 🏷

What is the best book that you’ve read so far in 2019?

The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima – This was an absolutely amazing conclusion to the Seven Realms Series and I have been obsessed ever since I finished this book!

8069828

What has been your favourite sequel for the first half of the year?

Legendary by Stephanie Garber – Caraval was just a little bit meh for me. I wasn’t all that invested in the characters and the magic system felt lacking to me. Then I picked up Legendary and the story was just elevated to another level.

81unYzab9VL

Is there a new release that you haven’t read yet that you’re really excited to?

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang – I read The Kiss Quotient a few weeks ago now and LOVED it and I knew immediately that I needed to pick up The Bride Test and see how it compares!

39338454

What is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?

Dark Dawn by Jay Kristoff – Godsgrave ended with a massive cliff-hanger, I need to know what is going to happen next! I am super excited to see what the outcome will be.

23264672

What is your biggest disappointment so far?

Circe by Madeline Miller – It just bored me…

9781408890080

What is your biggest surprise so far?

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – from the way that people explained the plot and the hype surrounding this book kind of turned me off from wanting to read it, but when I saw my local library had a copy I picked it up, read it and ended up really enjoying the book!

9781786331519

What is your favourite new to you or debut author?

Adrienne Young – I just recently read Sky in the Deep and I absolutely loved it! There were so many moving scenes in this book and I was super invested from the start.

34726469

What is your favourite fictional crush from this year?

Aeduan from the Witchlands Series – Bad/dangerous characters are my vice!

51uwijmx-pl

What is your new favourite character?

It changes constantly, right now at this moment I would probably say Nona from Red Sister. She’s had to deal with so much in life already, yet she won’t give up!

51oBuBFqgHL

A book that made you cry?

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – how could you not cry reading this book?

a91ce7bc-005c-4350-9436-48e63ec8673a

A book that made you happy?

Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend – I loved this book, it very fast paced and I was entertained from the first chapter to the last. The premise of the book is so unique and the execution was very well done! I had a smile on my face throughout the entirety of this book!

9780734418074

Your favourite book to movie/TV show that you’ve seen so far?

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before! – It was a great adaptation in my opinion. Both the book and the movie were super entertaining, a little bit cringey and very fast paced. They do tackle some deep emotional topics that are very current in today’s society which I thought made both the book and the movie very relevant.

What is the most beautiful book that you have bought?

Avengers Book Tag 🏷

I saw this tag over on both Sara the Bibliophagist and Kristin @ KristinKravesBooks blogs and since Endgame is all everyone has been talking about the last few month I figured I would give it a go as well.
