Now, this is my kind of book tag. I saw Life of a Literary Nerd doing this and just had to do myself. Feel free to do the same if you fancy it.
The Deathly Hallows. So much expectation was on this book and, holy crap, Rowling delivered and then some. I remember the release date. As soon as the book arrived, I shut myself in my room for a whole day to read it all the way to the end and didn’t dare even turn on my computer in case I strayed upon spoilers.
LEAST FAVORITE BOOK?
The Half Blood Prince. Just a load of romance subplots and exposition. Two of my pet hates.
The Prisoner of Azkaban. I didn’t like it at first watch because it wasn’t as faithful to the book as the last two but, looking back, I appreciate it a lot more.
LEAST FAVORITE MOVIE?
The Half Blood Prince. See above and why the hell did they film in sepia tone?
‘It matters not how someone is born but what they grow to be.’
Molly. None of them would be as awesome as they are without her.
FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER?
Luna Lovegood. She makes me smile in her every scene.
Dolores Umbridge. Major respect to Rowling for writing such a hateable character that is both everyday nuisance and supervillain.
FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER?
Neville Longbottom. That is how you do character development, everyone.
Professor Lupin. He’s an excellent teacher and person. The way the Wizarding World treated him for his condition is criminal.
WASH SNAPE’S HAIR, OR SPEND A DAY LISTENING TO LOCKHART RANT ABOUT HIMSELF?
Wash Snape’s hair. He’ll be death-glaring me all the time but, at least, he’d be quiet.
DUEL AN ELATED BELLATRIX, OR AN ANGRY MOLLY?
Elated Bellatrix. Angry Molly scares me and I’d love to wipe the evil smile off Bellatrix’s face.
TRAVEL TO HOGWARTS VIA HOGWARTS EXPRESS OR A FLYING CAR?
Hogwarts Express. It has sweets and it’s a lot safer.
KISS VOLDEMORT, OR GIVE UMBRIDGE A BUBBLE BATH?
Hmm, must remember not to get the bubble bath and the sulphuric acid mixed up…or not…
RIDE A HIPPOGRIFF, OR RIDE A FIREBOLT?
Hippogriff. True, it might kill me but I wouldn’t trust myself to handle such a fast broom without crashing.
IS THERE A CHARACTER YOU FELT DIFFERENTLY ABOUT IN THE MOVIES VERSUS THE BOOKS?
I really did not like movie Ginny at all. Book Ginny is boss!
IS THERE A MOVIE YOU PREFERRED OVER ITS BOOK?
RICHARD HARRIS OR MICHAEL GAMBON AS DUMBLEDORE?
Richard Harris and/or Michael Gambon in the third film. Don’t get me started on Michael Gambon in the fourth film onwards.
YOUR TOP THING (PERSON OR EVENT) WHICH WASN’T INCLUDED IN THE MOVIE THAT ANNOYED YOU THE MOST?
St Mungo’s Hospital. That would have been such a cool location and meeting Neville’s parents would have made such a gut-wrenching scene.
IF YOU COULD REMAKE ANY OF THE POTTER MOVIES, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
The Goblet of Fire. That needed some serious improvements.
WHICH HOUSE WAS YOUR FIRST GUT FEELING YOU’D BE A PART OF?
WHICH HOUSE WERE YOU ACTUALLY SORTED INTO ON POTTERMORE?
Slytherin. I was surprised at first but I’ve since embraced my Slytherin side. I think I’d do better there. I’m better at remembering passwords than solving logic problems for a start.
WHICH CLASS WOULD BE YOUR FAVORITE?
Charms. I think every lesson would be a lot fun. So much variety of spells to learn.
WHICH SPELL DO YOU THINK WOULD BE MOST USEFUL TO LEARN?
The Disillusionment Charm. I’ve wished I could become invisible so many times.
WHICH CHARACTER DO YOU THINK YOU’D INSTANTLY BECOME BEST FRIENDS WITH?
IF YOU COULD OWN ONE OF THE THREE HALLOWS, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
The Cloak of Invisibility. See above.
IS THERE ANY ASPECT OF THE BOOKS YOU’D WANT TO CHANGE?
The romance drama in Half Blood Prince. Seriously, get back to saving the Wizarding World and stop mooning and moping!
IF YOU COULD BRING ONE CHARACTER BACK TO LIFE, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
HALLOWS OR HORCRUXES?
