I love books. I’m guessing you already know that. What you might not know is that I love magical books more than most and that any book that is set in a world with magic or some sort of special skill makes me fall in love. That said, I’m sure you won’t find it strange that I’m doing a Harry Potter tag post.

Some months back, I finished reading all seven books again. J.K. Rowlings sha….πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—. That woman is a gift.

Nah, I wasn’t tagged, I’ve been tagged before but I’m doing it anyway. Like I always do for back link purposes, I got this tag idea from Jen (she blogs at Thrive in Chaos) who got it from Writing The Blues Away. Enjoy!

1. What house are you in?

According to every sorting test/quiz/whatever I have ever taken, I am a Gryffindor. And a Ravenclaw. No shock there at all. In fact the first time I took the quiz, I was a bit shocked and annoyed that I was put in Gryffindor. By the time I had done different quizes with different questions and all that, I was evenly divided between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw. But Pottermore gave me Ravenclaw and I think that’s more like me.

I would have begged the sorting hat to put me in Gryffindor though. But only because Ravenclaw tower has a riddle to be answered instead of a normal password. Won’t always be in the mood for that.

2. What is your patronus?

I tried to check with Pottermore but I couldn’t just get signed in no matter how hard I tried. I did one of this Patronus quizes all over the place and according to it, my patronus would have been a Polecat.

I refuse it.

3. What would your boggart be?

My boggart would probably be a snake coming at me. I hate snakes. Either that or a group of cockroaches flying all over me. For you non fans, a boggart is this thing that takes on your worst fears and the only way to contain it is to face it and not be afraid and think of ridiculing it. I know, creepy.

4. What position would you play in Quidditch?

Like Jen said, I wouldn’t make the team! I’m terrible at sports and my hand-eye coordination is famous for being so terrible. However, if by some great twist of fate I do make the team, I would be a seeker. I’m usually able to notice some small things that other people over look. It’s that or being a beater. How hard can it be to wack someone with a ball?

Quaffle (red ball) and the chained bludgers I would use if I was a beater.
To be a seeker, my golden snitch. Such a beautiful ball.
Believe it or not guys, Quidditch is now a real life sport. J. K. Rowling, I stan!

5. What job would you want to have after leaving Hogwarts?

I won’t leave, lol. I’ll stay back as a teacher or librarian.

6. Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

The Cloak of Invisibility. I’m a recluse. That plus the fact that I really want to hear some things I wouldn’t be allowed to hear. I would love to be able to sneak into places I shouldn’t be. Like planes going to luxury places like Hawaii and Seychelles.

The Deathly Hallows made up of the Resurrection Stone (circle), Elder wand and the Cloak of Invisibility (triangle).

7. Favourite book?

Not a hard question at all! Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3 was my best. I loved Sirius and I loved finding out that he was innocent and that Harry could finally have someone as close as family other than the Dursleys

8. Least favourite book?

Book 5! No contest. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I loved the book but it was the presence of Delores Umbridge that I hated so much. The book was kinda dark.

9. Favourite film?

I think my favourite movie would be sorcerer’s stone. The first movie because I loved seeing Radcliff so young, I was excited to see Harry finding escape from the Dursleys. I picture so many things when I read a book and when I watched the movie, of all the others, it was the one that most fit the pictures, expressions and every other thing I had imagined while reading the book.

10. Least favourite film?

Deathly Hallows. It was so sad though good won at the end but did it have to be at the cost of so many lives? I had read the book and knew all the people that would die but to see Snape go, knowing him really, I cried. The movie does not expressly show it but at the end I knew all the people that lay dead. Lupin, Tonks, Colin. It made me remember all the earlier deaths, Cedric, Sirius, Mad-eye, Dumbledore…

Aye, my least favorite film.

11. Favourite character?

Professor Snape! At first, I didn’t like him and then I understood him. Just because of that revelation, I went back and reread all the books. I loved that man.

OK if you don’t want the drama, my favorite was Dumbledore. I mean who else?

Daddy Dumbledore

12. Least favourite/most hated character?

Hermione. She is not most hated, she is least favourite. I don’t like people that are too smart.

Most hated would be the dreadful Delores Umbridge. I hated her hair, her voice, her look and her stupid hem hem. The kitty obsession. Such an annoying human being. So dreadful. So evil!

13. Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?

McGonagall and Snape. You already know why I love Snape but that’s not all. I love mixing things so I would have loved Potions. McGonagall was like that motherly teacher we all would love.

Mama McGonagall

14. Least favourite teacher at Hogwarts?

Without a doubt, it would be the very annoying Delores Umbridge. I know, I really hated that character.

And that’s all for this tag. I had so much fun reading the books again. If I see the whole movie set, I’ll probably watch them again too.

Are you a Harry Potter fan? Let me know if you do this tag too and I’ll take a look!
