The Harry Potter Spells Book Tag

1. Expecto Patronum

  • A childhood book connected to good memories

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

Definitely The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I remember absolutely adoring this book after borrowing it from the library when I was really young- and I still do.

2. Expelliarmus 

  • A book that took you by surprise

Jellicoe Road

I didn’t expect to love Jellicoe Road nearly as much as I did when I first read it- I went into it with relatively low expectations (although I was hopeful) and it remains my favorite stand-alone to this day.

3. Prior Incantato

  • The last book you read.

The Bell Jar

I finished The Bell Jar yesterday while I was getting my hair done, and I really, really loved it. Sylvia Plath is such a brilliant writer, and I hope to get a review up soon (I have a feeling that this’ll be a difficult book to review). 

4. Alohamora

  • A book that introduced you to a genre you had not considered before.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Like many before me, when I was young, I was very opposed to reading classics. I thought that they would be extremely boring, and I just wasn’t interested. That all changed when I read To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time in grade 5. I loved it with all my heart, and it remains my favorite classic to this day. It’s what launched me into my frequent reading of classics.

5. Riddikulus

  • A funny book you’ve read.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was definitely a funny book. It was very witty and fast paced and definitely had me amused and laughing.

6. Sonorus

  • A book you think everybody should know about.

Every Soul a Star

Every Soul a Star is a book that I’m sure I’ll always be fond of. It’s a middle grade novel that I read when I was in the sixth or seventh grade, and it really meant a lot to me. It’s told from the point of view of three very different people who learn about self growth and friendship through bonding over a mutual love of astronomy. Even though it’s targeted towards middle grade audience, I really think that it’s a book that everyone can learn from and should know about.

7. Obliviate

  • A book or spoiler you would like to forget having read.

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

I was spoiled for Tris’s death (<- hidden in case end up spoiling anyone- highlight over the blank space to reveal what it says) in Allegiant, which I was (and still am) extremely annoyed about. It’s not that I’d like to forget about reading this book, but that I really wish that I could go back in time, erase that spoiler from my mind and then read the book.  

8. Imperio

  • A book you had to read for school.

Romeo and Juliet

I actually didn’t mind having to read Romeo and Juliet for school- although I’m definitely not a fan of the story itself (is anyone?), Shakespeare is a brilliant writer and I always enjoy reading his work. 

9. Crucio

  • A book that was painful to read. 

The Book Thief

The Book Thief caused me some of the worst emotional pain that I have ever felt in my entire life. 

10. Avada Kedavra

  • A book that could kill (interpret as you will).

The Song of Achilles

The Song of Achilles– this book makes death by heartbreak quite likely to occur.

  1. I’ve been wanting to read Bell Jar!I’ll definitely add that to my TBR list. And I know how you feel on Allegiant!I was so disappointed reading it when I already knew how it was going to end.

    1. The Bell Jar is definitely such a worthwhile read, you won’t regret it! And I know, it really ruined a part of my reading experience because the entire time I was just anxiously waiting for it to happen.
