Harry Potter Day – Hogwarts Tag

Today is the 21st anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I’m a huge fan! Luana @ Book Storm Girl tagged me in this last week, and I’m so excited to do it! So let the fun begin!

 

What house are you in?

I’m a Ravenclaw all the way!

What is your wand?

“Laurel wood with a Phoenix feather core 9 ¾” and Slightly Yielding flexibility”

So a laurel wand cannot do a dishonourable act, and it doesn’t tolerate laziness. Phoenix feathers are picky because they come from independent creatures. There’s so much information about wands on the Pottermore website! I had no idea they were so complex.

What is your Patronus?

It’s a Chow dog! I’m not sure how helpful it would be against dementors…

What would your boggart be?

I took this quiz to find out (the same as Book Storm Girl) and I got Dementor! This makes sense, since they’re so creepy… I wouldn’t want to meet one in a dark alley, or on the Hogwarts Express.

What position would you play in Quidditch?

I did the Buzzfeed quiz for this one, because I had no idea what position I would play in Quidditch. I got chaser, just like one of my favourite witches, Ginny Weasley!

Would you rather take Divination or Care of Magical Creatures as an elective?

This is a hard one. I would like Divination, but I can’t stand Trelawney. But at the same time, I don’t want to be outside all the time with all kinds of strange creatures that Hagrid would choose for us to study. So I’ll have to go with Divination.

What pet would you take to Hogwarts?

I would definitely bring an owl!

Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

Hmm.. this is another tough one. I’m torn between the elder wand and the invisibility cloak, but I think I’d choose the cloak.

Would you enter your name for the Triwizard Tournament?

Nope. Nope. Nope.

Would you rather drink Butterbeer or Pumpkin Juice?

I would like to try both, but I have a sweet tooth, so I think I would prefer Pumpkin Juice.

Favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

I love McGonagall. She’s so tough, but she really cares about her students and wants them to do well.

Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Umbridge. All the way. I can’t stand her. She’s even worse than Voldemort.

Would you rather have the marauder’s map or a time-turner?

This is another tough one. I would rather have the map, because I think I would mess up the timeline by doing something wrong with the time-turner.

What Hogwarts ghost would you like the most?

I like Nearly Headless Nick. He’s funny and nice to Harry.

Would you join the Frog Choir?

Haha, nope. I don’t sing.

Would you rather get a pygmy puff or Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs?

Is this even a question? Pygmy puff, for sure! They’re so adorable! How can you resist!

The Hogwarts Express trolley is passing by, what do you get from it?

Pumpkin Pasties because they sound delicious.

Would you sneak into the restricted section of the Hogwarts library?

I probably would if I needed a book from there, or if I ran out of reading material in the rest of the library!

If you could save one character from the Battle of Hogwarts, who would it be?

This question is going to make me cry. I’m torn between Fred and Lupin. Probably Lupin… no Fred. No Lupin. It’s hard to say because if Fred survived, the Weasley twins would live on, but if Lupin survived then his son wouldn’t be an orphan. However, that continues Harry’s story by repeating history, since Harry is the godfather of the new orphan just like Sirius was to him. Okay, since I like the way history would repeat if Lupin died, I choose to save Fred.

Goodreads Synopsis:

On the eve of her sixteenth birthday, the young sorceress Sabrina Spellman finds herself at a crossroads, having to choose between an unearthly destiny and her mortal boyfriend, Harvey. But a foe from her family’s past has arrived in Greendale, Madame Satan, and she has her own deadly agenda. Archie Comics’ latest horror sensation starts here! For TEEN+ readers. Compiles the first six issues of the ongoing comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Review:

It’s been a long time since I thought I shouldn’t read a particular book before bed. This one was so creepy and disturbing, that I thought it would give me nightmares!

This definitely isn’t the same Sabrina the Teenage Witch that I grew up reading and watching on TV. She lives in a much darker town with murdering witches and dark spells. I didn’t realize just how “chilling” this graphic novel would be.

My favourite character has always been Salem, and he was just as great in this book. He’s sarcastic and funny, but he’s always looking out for Sabrina.

I also liked the cameo appearances of the gang from Riverdale. Two witches from their coven come to visit and help out at the end: Betty and Veronica!

I enjoyed this graphic novel, though I had to look away from the bloody graphics at times. Have you read it? What did you think?

Goodreads Synopsis:

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Review: The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1)

78411.jpg

Title: The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1)
Author: Lemony Snicket
Genre: Middle Grade
Publisher: Scholastic
Source: Library
Release Date: September 30, 1999
Rating: ★★★★★

goodreads-badge-add-plus-71eae69ca0307d077df66a58ec068898

Goodreads Synopsis:

Dear Reader,

I’m sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune.

In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Review:

I can’t believe this book is almost twenty years old! I first read the series years ago, and I’ve wanted to reread the whole series for a while. I’m finally doing it, and I’m going to read them in order this time (when I was little, I had to read whichever one was available at the library).

I love the writing style in this series. The author, Lemony Snicket, who is a character himself, speaks directly to the reader throughout the book. My favourite parts were when he would explain what a word meant. When I was little, I usually knew the word, and sometimes his definitions were funny, depending on the situation. As an adult reader, I still found this meta-narrative funny.

I also love that the Beaudelaire children are very resourceful. As the series progresses, their problems become more and more complex. This first book is fairly short, but I remember being surprised at how they defeated their horrible guardian, Count Olaf.

The new Netflix TV series of A Series of Unfortunate Events is very good. It even has some surprises for fans of the books, though it does stay faithful to the stories.

Have you read this series? What did you think of it?
