The Harry Potter Spells Tag


I've been on this blog for a while now and I still haven't got round to doing a tag. It's bad I know! Considering that everyone was celebrating Harry Potter's 20th anniversary last week, it is only fitting to do a Harry Potter tag! After doing a little search I found The Harry Potter Spells tag! This tag was originally created by Turtlesympathy on youtube, and of course many youtubers have followed it in it's path! 

The Harry Potter Spells Tag has also done a few rounds in the blogging community. A few contributors I found are: Becoming Bookish, Spines & Covers and Wonderfully Bookish.

1. Expecto Patronum
A Childhood Book Connected To Good Memories

Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You by Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi

This was the book that made me truly believe that there were mystical creatures around. I remember opening the field guide multiple times and asking myself: Could it all be real? What if there were monsters that I couldn't see? My imagination flew!

A Book That Took You By Surprise

A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines

A particular moment in this book shocked and traumatized me. It broke me! Ripped my heart out, stomped all over it then threw it in the bin! You probably get the picture... It wasn't the good kind of surprise. Who knew that I could be so connected to a character?

3. Prior Incantanto
The Last Book You Read

The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

Three years it took me to read The Devil Wears Prada. Three years! I've finally read it now.

4. Alohamora
A Book That Introduced You To A Genre You Had Not Considered Before

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Many people have raved about The Book Thief. I hadn't read any sort of historical fiction book in a very long time. I'm so glad I read it, and hope that I find a lot more books like it! Historical fiction can be incredibly eye opening.

5. Riddikkulus
A Funny Book You've Read

50 Ways To Find A Lover by Lucy-Anne Holmes

Books rarely get me laughing so hard that I have to stop reading, but this one does just that. Sarah is the silliest, most ridiculous character ever. Of course that's why I love her so much, she's hilarious!

6. Sonorus
A Book You Think Everybody Should Know About

The Neverending Story by Michael Ende

Many people have heard of the film. Let me tell you, the book is just as magical! In fact, even more. There are so many life lessons to be learnt from reading this book. How important it is to believe, be confident in yourself and also be considerate of others. It's an amazing tale that no one should miss!

7. Obliviate
A Book Or Spoiler You Would Like To Forget Having Read

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

Never in a million years would I regret reading The Fault In Our Stars. However, I definitely wish that I hadn't read all the posts on Tumblr and youtuber comments. It was pretty much set from the start that I was meant to cry. So guess what happened. I didn't cry. Not one tear. I felt so ashamed!

8. Imperio
A Book You Had To Read For School

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

We watched the movie and read the book. Lenny was my favourite character of course! Funnily, what I remember most is having to analyse the opening of a chapter that describes a snake slithering through grass. Something along those lines anyway.. That meant foreboding, as every little detail did in school.

9. Crucio
A Book That Was Painful To Read

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks

Let's cut straight to the chase. I hated this book. Especially, the choices that Frankie Landau Banks made. Many people call this a book that all girls should read, a book for feminists, but I completely disagree. While the themes bring up important issues. The fact that women should be treated equally. And should be seen as just as powerful, given the same punishments and rewards. I saw the injustice that was put towards Frankie Landau Banks, however, the way that she approached those issues was manipulative and sometimes inconsiderate of her friends. The ones that did treat her the way she should be treated. Women should be equal, and listened to equally. But the way to do it is not through under-handed tactics. I'll stop ranting now..

10. Avada Kedavra
A Book That Could Kill

Arthur Spiderwick's Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You by Arthur Spiderwick

I know I've already mentioned this book, but have you read the first installment to the Spiderwick Chronicles series?? Owning this book puts you in serious trouble! I have no idea how all the goblins haven't found me yet!

11. Accio
A Book You'd Always Like To Have With You

The Little Book of Confidence by Tiddy Rowan

I haven't actually read this yet, even though I really should! The Little Book of Confidence is a miniature book filled with quotes meant to inspire you. Carry it around in your bag and every time you need a little pick me up, just open it up to a random page!  

That's all the questions for the Harry Potter Spells Tag. Isn't it great?! This is the part where I tag people isn't it. Now who should I choose... Hmmmm..? I'm going to tag two people! Jess from Curiouser and Curiouser and Cass from Words On Paper! Consider yourself tagged! 

If I haven't tagged you then have no fear! Do what I did and nab the idea for your own blog, I'd love to read it!

  1. Hey Vena, thank you so much for tagging me! I've just finished writing my post up, and it'll be up next week. :) Just got to tag people, I find that's the hardest part of doing book tags! I'm very curious about A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines, it seems like something I need to read! I love historical fiction and am thrilled that The Book Thief agreed with you! :D Also, I'm a big crier so I *still* cried when I read The Fault in Our Stars. I did read it just before more hype could reach it, but by that time there was already quite a bit of hype, just when it was being released, so *shrugs shoulders*. I'm a big crier hahah.
