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.

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.

Hey everyone! I’m so excited that it’s almost Christmas! That’s one of the reasons why I’m going to be doing another Christmas book tag. A special thanks to @Catia. You definitely should check out her amazing blog! Today I am doing the All I Want For Christmas Book Tag.


1) What fictional character do you want Santa to leave under your Christmas tree?

There are several answers to this but I’m going to say Ron Weasley! He is my book crush. I don’t care what happens, I still love him xD

2) Character Do You Want to Kiss Under the Mistletoe?

Shoot! I should’ve saved Ron for this one. Just kidding 😀 I’m going to say either Harry Potter or.. Jake from the Phantom Stallion series.

6) What fictional animal would you like to replace Rudolph and be able to meet on your roof?

Top Ten Tuesday’s: Thanksgiving Freebie

Hi everyone! It’s been at least a week since I’ve participated in Top Ten Tuesday’s. This weekly meme is hosted by the amazing people at The Broke and the Bookish. You should definitely check out their blog! Today’s topic is a Thanksgiving freebie. They gave us many ideas such as authors we are thankful for and fictional families we would want to spend Thanksgiving with. I can’t pick between these two so I will do five of each 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday’s Authors and Fictional Families:

1) J.K. Rowling

Of course this outstanding author is at the top of this list! She wrote the amazing Harry Potter series. I am currently about to start book number 5 and can’t believe how many plot twists and    suspenseful moments there are!

image

2) John Green

It’s a given that John Green is on this list. I have raved countless times about Paper Towns and The Fault in Our Stars. John Green is definitely an incredible author 🙂

image

3) James Patterson

His books always make me laugh and smile. His Treasure Hunters series has so much adventure and suspense. The Middle School series features a silly and mischievous boy named Rafe. You should check out his books.

image

4)Beverly Cleary

She is such an amazing author! I have grown up with Ramona, Beezus, Henry, and more. Her books are an easy and fun read.

image

5) Suzanne Collins

Suzanne wrote the Hunger Games series. Without her, we wouldn’t be  able to volunteer tribute, have Peeta Bread, and many more puns and references. Mockingjay Part 2 recently came out in theaters. Have you seen it?

 


5 Fictional Families I would love to spend Thanksgiving with:

  1. The Weasleys!

This is obviously at the top of the list. The Weasleys each have their own unique personality and Mrs. Weasley is so kind and caring. They also all have bright red hair and freckles 😀

image

2) Miss J and Anna

They aren’t a biological family. Anna is a foster child and Miss J is her foster parent. They have a bond that’s as tight knit like a mother and daughter. These amazing characters are in the book I finished today. I will be reviewing that ASAP.

image

3) The  O’Briens

The O’Briens consist of Summer and her daughter Ellie. Ellie’s father left quite a while ago. Summer and Ellie have the cutest mother-daughter relationship. They are one of the families in The Swap that I recently reviewed.

4) The Malloys

Not the Malfoys  XD The Malloys are Jack Malloy, his brothers Stryker, Gunner and Jett, and the Captain who is their father. They are a different kind of family but are very close. All of them are super althetic and exercise attics. The Malloys are another family in The Swap.

 

5) The Everdeens

I’m hoping I spelled that correctly.. The Everdeens stick together. Katniss provides food for the family by hunting in an illegal area. I honestly haven’t read the Hunger Games series in a long time.


 

Thats all! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is definitely longer than normal but I enjoyed writing it.

What are you thankful for? Tell me in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Top Ten Tuesday’s!
