Stay Home Reading Rush TBR

Soooo I have made the last minute decision to participate in the Stay Home Reading Rush which started today and finishes on Sunday 19th April. I participated in the Reading Rush last year and had a lot of fun, so I figured why not encourage people to stay home, socially isolate yourself and read all weekend!!!

This is a haul of books that I have accumulated over the course of the last month or so.  I’ve really been trying to not buy a lot of books that I haven’t read yet and only getting new releases I’m super excited for or books I’ve read and rated 4 stars or over!

⚡️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!

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!

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!

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!

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!!

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!
