I love me some Harry Potter. My mother gifted me the first book in the summer of 1997. She actually judged the book by the cover and thought I’d like to read about a magical boy flying on a broomstick. And she was one hundred percent right! (But I never admit my mother is right, lmao). I’m a HUGE Potterhead, and always will be (no matter the authors stance on anything in the news, past, present or future). With that being said, a book tag about Harry Potter is right up my alley!
I do not know who started this book tag, but I’m giving a shoutout to Emma U. at BookVines, the blog where I found this.
Lets get to it!
What house are you in?
I am in Slytherin. The official test put me in Slytherin when I did it forever ago. I do not feel like I have the attributes of a typical Slytherin: Cunning, Ambition, Resourcefulness, Fraternity, Pride, Determination, Leadership, Self-Preservation & Lineage. I really identify myself as an introvert. I like to have fun, but don’t like to cause trouble. And I’m definitely not a leader, lol. Maybe I am also a Ravenclaw. Aren’t two houses a thing, a Slytherclaw or something? But, I can’t go back now as I have tons of Slytherin paraphernalia at this point.
What is your Patronus?
My Patronus is a Badger. A Badger? Google tells me that a badger represents determination. Connected to the earth, the badger is grounded and celebrates individuality.
What is your wand?
My wand is an Elm wood with a dragon heartstring core, 12.5″ and brittle flexibility.
What would your Boggart be?
I guess my boggart would be a clown. Clowns creep me out!
What position would you play in Quidditch?
I played soccer for many, many years and I was a forward. If I played Quidditch I think I would be a chaser. They seem the same position to me.
Would you be a pure-blood, half-blood, or muggle born?
Slytherin’s are (mostly) only pure-bloods.
What job would you like to have after leaving Hogwarts?
I would be something obscure, like a Broom Maker or something.
Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?
I would pick the invisibility cloak. I already have a wand that I got at the Wizarding World in Orlando, FL. The wand chose me! And people who are brought back to life aren’t who they were when they were alive, so I’ll just wait to see them when I get to Heaven. So definitely the invisibility cloak!
The Order of The Phoenix. The dynamic of the books changed and since I too was going through some dark stuff when I was reading the book for the first time, it just sat with me. When the ending of the book came to be I was utterly crushed and that also just stayed with me because of the stuff I was going through as a teenager.
Least favorite book?
The Prisoner of Azkaban, probably. Listen, it’s been FOREVER since I read it (I only read each book once) but I just remember skipping pages left and right wanting this book to be over.
Again The Order of The Phoenix. David Yates did a fantastic job on the movie!
Least favorite film?
Again, The Prisoner of Azkaban. Probably because I do not care for the book.
Professor Lupin. When he showed up on the scene I thought he was a bit sketch. Turns out he was hiding being a werewolf. It happens, lol. As we get to know Remus longer I stated to like his personality. I also like the relationship Harry and him have. Protector but not overbearing. Just good old friends. This article I found says it way better than I ever could.
Least favorite/most hated character?
In the books I hated Umbridge. Pure hatred.
I’d say Lupin, but since I used him I’m gonna go with Snape. In the movies when he pulls at his wrists to move up my shirt some and then smacks Harry and Ron on the heads to get them to do their work… priceless!
Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?
None of them really bother me.
Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
I haven’t read The Cursed Child and I am not sure that I will. I own it, but it’s just sitting there. Was it REALLY needed? I don’t think so.
