Hype or Like Friday (#2)|Favorite Harry Potter Characters

Hey everyone! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another Hype or Like Friday! You guys really seemed to enjoy last week’s post so I’m back for

more 😀 This weekly meme is hosted by three wonderful people: Jillian @ Rant and Rave About Books, Larkin @ Wonderfilled Reads and last but not least, Britt @ Geronimo Reads. 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.

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!

Top Ten Tuesday: A Laugh Or Smile

Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and that means Civil War Reenators at school today! It also means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesdays! This amazing meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You definitely need to check out their book blog if you haven’t already. This week’s topic is:

Ten Books That Will Make You Laugh (or at least chuckle)

I honestly smile more than I laugh while reading. Therefore I will manipulate the topic and do  Ten Books That Will Make You Smile. These books have most likely been over-raved so I will just show the picture of the book and the author.

Ten Books That Will Make You Smile:

  1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


2. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

3. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

5. Paper Towns by John Green

6. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney

This is a kids series and definitely is for kids. It still made me smile.

7. The IFunny Series by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

8. The Smile Series by Raina Telgemeier (no pun intended)

9. True (…Sort Of) by Katherine Hannigan

10. Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Hello Everyone! I was recently nominated to do the Inside Out Book Tag by MyTinyObsessions. Go check out their blog for all things books, movies, and more.

Book That Brings You Joy:

          Image result for tween books

I have many books that brought me joy but Ramona Quimby, Age 8 was one of them because of her antics.

Book That Makes You Angry:

Wonder made me mad because the kids at school were so mean to August just because he looked different.
Book That Makes You Sad:
After Ever After made me so sad because a young boy gets a serious kind of cancer. It made me cry.
Book That Disgusts You:
Not many books disgust me but this Between Shades of Gray  did. The characters were treated badly just because they were women.
Book That Brought You Fear:
The Divergent series has so far scared the crap out of me!
This was a fun tag! If you haven’t seen Inside Out yet, I recommend you do. It’s such a cute movie.
I nominate everyone who wants to participate.
Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more tags 🙂
