Day 6

“Favorite professor.” PROFESSOR MCGONAGALL!!!!! She’s intelligent, kick-ass, loving, and super powerful. I’m on the Pottermore Beta (hell yeah!) and I’m privy to Minerva’s background information. IT IS THE MOST DEPRESSING STORY IN THE HISTORY OF EVER. Maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but it is very sad. Dame Maggie Smith is freaking adorable and the best suited […]

Day 5

The end. Not the end of the book (although that was also sad.) No, I’m talking about the end of it all: the series, the magic, the adventures, the midnight premieres, the book releases, the anticipation, the community, my childhood. There’s a song by a wizard-rock (wrock) band called Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls. The […]

Day 4

Sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry “Favorite villain.” How could I not choose Bellatrix Lestrange?! She’s so perfectly twisted and demented. Her character is so passionate and violent. I think that Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal was absolutely spot-on. Her obsession with Voldemort, her sociopathic mind, her childish behavior, everything was so well put together to make […]

Week Nine: Goals

I know this week is a bit short as a result of my late “Results” post, but hopefully I can make it up! This week I hope to: 1. Finish Detour by Lizzie Simon (which I have to; it’s for a writing course) 2. Read Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. I think both of these are achievable and […]

Week 8: Results

I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to update my blog this weekend. I spent most of my time reading and staying with my sick girlfriend (I’m so cute.) Anyway, on with the show… I FINISHED THE NIGHT CIRCUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was absolutely amazing. Honestly, not since Harry Potter have I felt so strongly about a book. […]

Additional Challenge….maybe?

As you all know by now, I have an account on Goodreads. I was scrolling through almost everything I could click on while avoiding my mountainous homework load, and I stumbled across a challenge called “A-Z Title Challenge”. Pretty much, you read a book that starts with each letter of the alphabet (‘a’, ‘an’, ‘the’ […]

Day 1

“Your favorite book in the series.” Easily, Order of the Phoenix (5). Shit gets real in this book; while Goblet of Fire introduced Voldemort as a character–as opposed to an idea by mention–the fifth book actively involves the villain. Harry’s tensions run high, which makes him seem more realistic to me. Sooner or later, he was bound to […]
