Harry Potter Tag & #Giveaway

 

I have been blogging over six years and in that time I haven't really talked a lot about my love for Harry Potter. I don't know how this could have happened but it has. So as this month see's the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and the release of House editions of the Philosophers stone I thought I would do the ultimate Harry Potter tag which will let you know all my thoughts on Harry Potter. 

I have also partnered up with my sister Kerry-Ann and her blog A Bookish Redhead to have a giveaway where you will have the chance to win a house edition of Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone in paperback. Head over and check out her post 

So let's get on with the tag. This tag was created by Just Keep Reading it's a long old tag so grab a Butterbeer and a chocolate frog and relax.

General

Favorite Book


My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It seems to be a lot of people's favorite. It is where we are introduced to some of my favorite characters and I just think unlike the first two books the story really starts to pick up and take a more darker and deadly turn which I enjoyed.

Least Favorite Book

I think my least favorite book is Order of the phoenix/Half Blood Prince, I remember Harry annoyed me a lot in them, and everything got very dark and everything started to get very serious and even though I know it's part of the story and I get it now , when I was younger I didn't. I also think because loads of things happened that shocked me it really made me step back and have to have a breathe. Don't get me wrong now reading them its amazing but back when I was younger they definitely where my least favorite. 


Favorite Movie

My favorite Movie is probably Deathly Hallows Part two. The Hogwarts battle scene was amazing!!!! Cinematic-ally it was stunning. It had me on the edge of my seat and my heart racing. I loved it.


Least Favorite movie

My least favorite movie is Harry Potter and the philosophers stone and the only reason is because it's the one I have watched the most and I think because I know it so well I just tend to skip it. 

Favorite Quote

One word "Always"

Characters


Favorite Weasley

My favorite Weasley is Ron. He is my fave out of the trio. I just love him. He's so funny, and a bit of an idiot most of the time. But he's my idiot.

Favorite female character

Oh there are so many amazing females in Harry Potter. Everyone loves Hermione and of course I do but I think one of my fave female characters is Luna, she is so quirky and weird and I just love her. 

Favorite villain

We all love to hate her, Umbridge! I swear I hate her so much and I would gladly use a curse on her but she is an explosion of pink and cats and evil, she's just terribly great. 

Favorite male character

Because I picked Ron for my fave Weasley am not going to choose him again. So I would choose Sirius Black. I love him so, so much! I cried at two deaths in Harry Potter and his was one of them. It was terrible, even thinking about it now it makes me so sad. 

Favorite Professor

Professor Mcgonagall hands down, I love her. She's strong, sassy, so kind and she turns into a cat! She has always been my fave.


Would you rather?



Wash Snape's hair or spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself.

Probably listen to Lockhart rant. I hate washing my own hair I don't want to be washing Snape's.

Duel an elated Bellatrix or an angry Molly

Both would result in my death. We all know what happens when Molly is angry and Bellatrix is just plain crazy. Maybe Molly I could try and talk her down, Bellatrix I would have know chance.

Travel to Hogwarts VIA the Hogwarts Express or Flying Car

Hogwarts Express, hands down. Getting on at platform 9 and 3/4 would be amazing and I would buy everything of the trolley lady.

Kiss Voldemort or give Umbridge a bubble bath

Really! If it was Voldemort as a teenager before he looked like a creepy snake. I would be to tempted to drown Umbridge.

Ride a Hippogriff or a firebolt

A Hippogriff. Hippogriff's are some of my fave creatures in Harry Potter and I just think I would be worse than Neville on a broom. 

Book to movie adaptation

Is there a character which you felt differently about in the movies VS books?

Its not a character but more a place. I loved the burrow in the books and just wanted more of it in the movie. I could read a whole book about the weasley's growing up in the burrow and having to de gnome the garden and get up to mischief. 

Is there a movie you preferred instead of the book?

I love the books and the movies but I did prefer the movies a tiny bit more and I know you shouldn't say that. But the movies brought a tiny bit more of life to the books. 

Richard Harris or Micheal Gambon as Dumbledore?

I liked both but I really did like Richard Harris.

Your top thing (person or event) which wasn't included in the movie that annoyed you the most.

I wanted more of Hermione's campaign for the house elves I loved the house elves and I loved seeing in the kitchen's and stuff in the books and Hermione's compassion for the house elves.

If you could remake any of the Potter movies, which would it be?

I wouldn't they are all perfect and amazing.

Hogwarts



Which House was your first gut feeling you'd be a part of?

Like everyone I wanted to be Gryffindor to start but then as the books went on I saw myself as more of a Ravenclaw.

Which House where you actually sorted into on Pottermore?

Ravenclaw which I am so happy with. I definitely have the characteristics of a Ravenclaw. 

Which Class would be your favorite?

I think I would like Transfiguration. I would like to turn things into other things and I would have my fave professor. 

Which spell do you think would be the most useful to learn?

I am going to make one up but some sort of spell that would make me read faster as I read so slow and I want to read all the books. 

Which character do you think at Hogwarts you'd instantly become friends with?

I think me and Luna could be friends as we would be in the same house and I think I would get her weirdness because am probably as weird as her.

Miscellaneous

If you could own one of the three hallows, which would it be?

I would want the cloak of invisibility along with the marauders map which I know isn't a hallow but I would like that with it.  

Is there any aspect of the books you'd want to change? This could be a character, event or anything.

I would change Sirius getting killed. I know it would maybe change the course of the book but I really didn't want him to die.

Favorite Marauder?

Silly question, Sirius. I want a book on all the marauder's .

If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?

Dobby!! How could you kill Dobby, seriously I cried so hard when he was killed. I wanted to personally kill Bellatrix. 

Hallows or Horcruxes?

Hallows hand down.

  1. I'm a Hufflepuff! I love your answers to this tag and I'll be doing this tag ASAP!

    Your answer for:
    Kiss Voldemort or give Umbridge a bubble bath - is awesome!

    And I love Luna. Hermione is great and I'd totally be BFFs with her, but Luna is so quirky, I just love her.

    Thanks for the chance to win! This is EPIC!
