It’s been a while since I’ve done a book tag, hasn’t it? Well, let’s fix that by answering the questions for the Harry Potter Spells book tag!
I originally saw this tag done by Jessethereader on youtube, but apparently, this tag was made by TurtleSympathy on Youtube. I think his channel was deleted or something because I can’t find anything with that name
If you’re a Harry Potter fan and enjoy books, then I totally recommend doing this tag! If you don’t have a blog or youtube channel, then just write your answers and post them in the comments section!
1. Expecto Patronum: A childhood book connected to good memories
I don’t remember a lot about the books I read when I was really little, but I distinctly remember reading The Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney.
Now that I look back, they were really the books that introduced me to middle-grade/young adult.
I remember getting in trouble for reading them in class when I was in primary school. Ahh, the no-stress days.
I don’t have a copy of this anymore, so forgive me 😥
2. Expelliarmus: A book that took you by surprise
Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur was the first book of poems that I’ve ever read, and it truly surprised me. I like poetry. And this book showed me that.
I sat down and just devoured this book. I read page after pages and just fell in love with the words and stories they portrayed.
If you’ve never read poetry, then you should definitely check this out!
3. Prior Incantato: The last book you read.
I’ve been in a massive reading slump lately. Actually, I’ve just been so busy with exams and blogging, but that’s not what the question wants.
The last book I read was Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix by J.K. Rowling. Fitting, I know.
I seriously need to start reading again, because I’m 3 books behind on my Goodreads goal. Ugh.
(BTW. The book was amazing. What did I expect? It’s Harry Potter. )
4. Alohamora: A book that introduced you to a genre you had not considered before.
I’ve always heard about Magical Realism, but I never really knew what it meant until I picked up Everyday by David Leviathan.
When I finished it, though, I didn’t give it that high of a rating, which is purely based on the ending. I thought it was a big cop out, and Ugh. I liked it up until the last 20 or so pages. I think it needs a sequel, not a companion novel. Just saying.
5. Riddikulus: A funny book you’ve read.
Now, I know this might sound really fucked up and crazy, but the funniest book I’ve read ’till now is Suicide Notes by Michael Thomas Ford…
This book is just filled with dark humor but still, touches on a lot of important topics such as bullying LGBTQA+ teens and suicide (obviously).
6. Sonorus: A book you think everybody should know about.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers (I actually interviewed him in a previous post!) is one of my favorite underrated books that I want everyone to read and love.
7. Obliviate: A book or spoiler you would like to forget having read.
I’m not going to say anything, I’ll just show you the books that were spoiled for me…
8. Imperio: A book you had to read for school.
I think I mentioned that I’m reading Animal Farm for school this year in a post somewhere, but if I didn’t then I just told you…
Yeah, I read it in the summer, and now I’m studying it in depth, which actually turned out to be great and is making me love the novel even more.
9. Crucio: A book that was painful to read.
Soundless by Richelle is probably the worst book I’ve read to date. It was so boring and tried being too many things at once.
I had to force myself to finish it, can’t believe people actually enjoyed it…
10. Avada Kedavra: A book that could kill (interpret as you will).
One of my all time favorite books of all time (and one of the most emotional books I’ve read) is The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand.
It will kill you.
You will be crying by the end.
You’ll love every second of it.
That’s all I have for you guys today! If you want to answer these questions, then feel free to (via. your blog, youtube channel, social media, or comments section) and tag me in it so I can like and share!
Much love, Rawan …
