The Harry Potter Book Tag!

Since the 20th anniversary for Philosopher’s Stone is coming up I thought a book tag based around Harry Potter would be a perfect fit to the theme. So I went searching and found one with a few intriguing questions.

Flagrate
A book you found interesting but would like to rewrite 

ATBITS The premise was so interesting and it was a bit different from anything else I had read around that time. I coveted it for age before I finally bought it. And I enjoyed it, 3.5 stars enjoyed it. But I was expecting something I didn’t get, it was weirder than expected, so maybe I’d rewrite it to fit the image I had in my head because that was a damn good book.

Alohomora
The first book in a series that got you hooked

DP Trilogy I will never be over how The Summoning effected me. It brought me into the book world, (aside from Harry Potter of course). I bought the first two on a whim and speed read them so fast. I was hooked from beginning to end and they truly started my journey into the book world.

Accio
A book you wish you could have right now

The Long Way is already out but I haven’t got it yet and I’m so looking forward to some serious sci-fi reading. It sounds intriguing. I always love a Sarah Dessen book but haven’t found one I’ve enjoyed as much recently, but her new one sounds great! A perfect summer holiday read.

Avada Kedavra
A killer book

TSS Monster’s created from bad actions? A seriously dark world? Murder? Danger? I say yes every time. And V.E.Schwab is a master. Her books kill me every time, in a good way. My heart literally bleeds for every character she creates.

Confundo
A book you found confusing

TMOTF - Elliot I had to read this for my university course and… I did not have a fiddle what it was trying to say. I couldn’t finish it and I couldn’t even understand it at times because I was so bored. Safe to say I did not write an essay on it.

Expecto Patronum
Your spirit animal book 

Seraphina It’s a fantasy, because my spirit animal book could be nothing else. It has dragons, I love dragons. Political intrigue. Add in a strong independent heroine and I’m in love. Seraphina isn’t your typical, arse-kicking, standoffish, alluring protagonist that is becoming very common in YA literature these days, and I feel like I connect to her more because of this. She uses her brain rather than her fists and is overly concerned with what people think of her. I couldn’t relate to her more. Full review

Sectumsempra
A dark, twisted book

TLT The synopsis does not do the dark edge layered in this book justice. I was so surprised about this that I kept forgetting it was a children’s book. The lies that Faith weaves throughout her village are convoluted and twisted and quite shocking for a young girl to spread. I wrote a full review here.

Aparecium
A book that surprised you in a great way

DOBAS I believe I mentioned how much this book changed my mind about Taylor’s trilogy for me in last years wrap up. But it really pleased me. The plot got deeper, the world got bigger, the characters more intriguing. Now I’m officially hooked on Taylor’s writing; I already have Strange the Dreamer on my shelf!
