Top 5 Wednesday (#2)| New Years Eve Party

Hey everyone! It’s time for the new meme for Wednesday on this blog. There wasn’t too much response on whether or not you guys enjoyed this. I did so I will continue 🙂 Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by gingerreadslainey and Sam @ Thoughts On Tomes. Both of these lovely ladies have YouTube blogs as opposed to regular ones like this one. To find out more information, future topics and more, visit the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic is the last one for the year. It is New Year’s based.

Characters I’d Invite To My NYE Bash:

1. Hagrid- Harry Potter

2. Dumbledore-Harry Potter

Dumbledore would make the party amazing! He seems like he would be the quiet person that occasionally says things that make everyone laugh.

3. Kitty-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

She’s a kid but always entertains me. She’d be the one trying and possibly succeeding in making everyone laugh.

4. Levi-Fangirl

Levi would be the type of person making sure everyone is having a good time. He’s such a nice guy that would really add life to my party.

5. Effie Trinket-The Hunger Games

Effie is so strange and unique. She’d probably be the one everyone is enthralled by but also scared of.

That’s a wrap! I would definitely invite more than these five. These are just the ones that randomly came to mind. I only did two Harry Potter characters. I’m glad the list has some variety. Who would you invite to your New Year’s Eve Bash? Let me know who and why!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more T5W!

Go check out their wonderful bookish blogs!  To find out more information, future topics and more, go to the meme’s Goodreads group here. This week’s topic/theme is:

10 Things I Like About Harry Potter: Name 10 things you like about any of the books in the series. You’re not limited to a particular book. You can choose whatever you want from any book. It’s completely up to you. This category is wide open, but here’s a few ideas: favorite characters, spells, magical items, plot twists, villains, etc. You can do whatever you want with this.

I have decided to do Ten Favorite Characters.


My Ten Favorite Harry Potter Characters: (In No Order)

  1. Ron Weasley

He is Harry Potter’s loyal friend. Ron and his family make Harry feel as if he’s part of their family. I like Ron because he’s a ginger like me, he’s loyal and funny too. Weasley is Our King!

2. Dumbledore

Dumbledore is the headmaster at Hogwarts. I like Albus Dumbledore because he is kind, wise and goes out of his way to help his students. Especially Harry.

3. Hagrid

Hagrid is the Ground and Key Keeper at Hogwarts. He is half giant and half human. Hagrid has important jobs like getting the 1st years to Hogwarts. I love Hagrid because he is funny, strange and very helpful. Hagrid is a big help and friend to Harry and his friends.

4. Dobby the House Elf

Dobby is a house elf. He is bound to his master for life or until his master gives him a sock or piece of clothing. I like Dobby because he is very loyal to Harry Potter, kind and helpful.

5. Voldemort

Voldemort is the villain in Harry Potter. He’s out to get Harry and will stop at nothing. I like Voldemort because he’s determined, makes for the best plot twists and extremely creepy.

6. Ginny Weasley

Ginny is Ron’s only sister. Harry slowly becomes very close to her. I like Ginny because she’s a ginger, kind and very loving.

7. Sirius Black

Sirius is Harry Potter’s criminal godfather. He is very caring towards Harry. I like Sirius because he’s mysterious, caring and isn’t afraid to fight.

8. Minerva McGonagall

She is among other things, the head of Gryffindor house and the Headmistress of Hogwarts. I like McGonagall because she can transform into a cat, serious and business like.

9. Severus Snape

He is the Potions teacher at Hogwarts. I like Snape because he is mysterious, serious and has a grudge against Harry Potter.

10. Remus Lupin

Lupin is the Professor of Defense of Dark Arts at Hogwarts. I like him because he has a few secrets, he is mysterious and helpful.

That’s a wrap! I loved this topic so much and could honestly find something I liked about every character. I won’t be doing next week’s topic since I haven’t read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child yet. I might think of something else.

Who are your favorite characters? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Hype or Like Friday!

Hype Or Like Friday (#1)|Apocalypse

Hey everyone! It’s Friday and time for a brand new meme. This meme is created by Larkin, Britt and Jill. Go check out these amazing blogs 🙂 This meme is based around talking about hyped books. The genres range from contemporary to fantasy.  Go to the memes Goodreads group here for more information. August is Harry Potter month so every topic/question is Harry Potter based. This week’s topic is:

Imagine it’s the apocalypse, whatever magic is left in the Wizarding World is slowly diminishing, and you need to assemble a team to help you survive. Which 5 characters would you choose for your team, what roles would they play (i.e. Team Leader, Most Cunning, Most Skilled, etc.), and how would they help you survive. You can do whatever you want with this topic. Get creative and have fun with it.

My Team:

1. Team Leader: Oliver Wood

Oliver was a great Quidditch team leader. He would be able to make strategic plans on how to stay alive and safe. Oliver would also be able to keep us together when times get tough.

2. Most Skilled: Harry Potter

Harry dodged death several times. He would be able to go into life or death situations if it helped the team’s survival. Harry would be the one to possibly risk his life for others.

 


3. Most Cunning: Dumbledore

Dumbledore helped Harry  dodge Voldemort several times. He would be able to plot out plans on how to attack any threats. Dumbledore is very wise so he would know what to do in a live or death situation.


4. Best Potion Maker: Snape

Snape taught the Potions class at Hogwarts. He would be able to whip up important potions to help the team survive and escape risky situations.


5. Resource Gatherer: Ron Weasley

Ron loves food. He would be in charge of gathering resources including food and water. Ron would be able to find resources where it seems scarce. He would be a very important part of survival.


That’s a wrap!! Who would be on your team? Did you enjoy this first post? If yes, would you like to see more? Let me know all this in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Hype or Like Fridays if you guys enjoy it.

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Hi everyone! Today I am doing a book review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. I finished this book a few days ago but haven’t been too motivated to blog lately. I’m feeling more motivated and plan to be more active again 😀

Title: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter Series #6)

Author: J.K. Rowling

# of pages: 652

My Rating: 5/5 stars

Goodreads Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Barnes and Noble Summary:

Amazon and Goodreads Summaries were uncompleted or not the same as the book

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even Muggle governments are noticing. Ron scans the obituary pages of the Daily Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.
And yet…

As in all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate — and lose a few eyebrows in the process. The Weasley twins expand their business. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

So it’s the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort — and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.


 

My Thoughts:

Dang! A lot happened in the 6th book of the 7 book series! I can’t say much but some flirting arises and relationships begin. Dumbledore and Harry continue their battle. I wish I could say more but I know some fellow bloggers haven’t read this book yet so no spoilers 😀

Here are some memes and gifs of Harry Potter for you to enjoy XD


That’s my review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

What are your thoughts? Let me know! *NO SPOILERS!*

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the 7th Harry Potter book review!
