Last week I saw the lovely Maren of The Worn Bookmark doing this fun book tag. I love the Harry Potter books and films, so just had to give it a go too.
1. Favourite book?
My favourite book would have to be Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I love all the secrets, the Marauder’s Map, the time travel and it introduces my favourite character.
2. Favourite movie?
My favourite film would have to be a toss-up between Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) and Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince (2009). The first is my go-to comfort watch, while the latter I think has the best combination of action, humour and emotion.
3. Least favourite book?
My least favourite book is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It is the longest book and can perhaps suffer from some waffling. Plus I am not sure I could have taken much more of Harry’s teen angst/mood swings!
4. Parts of the books/movies that make you cry?
In the books there are several moments that had me crying. In particular the death of Dobby is heart-breaking. Sadly he doesn’t feature so much in the films for his death to have the same effect.
In the films the moment that makes me cry is the death of Cedric Diggory. When Harry brings Cedric’s body back and his father is holding him, crying, and calling out “my boy”. It is just utterly, harrowing.
5. Favourite character?
My favourite character is Professor Lupin, and when they cast David Thewlis in the films; it became love.
6. What would your Patronus be?
I am not sure why exactly but I would like my Patronus to be a fox.
7. If you could have the Resurrection Stone, the Invisibility Cloak, or the Elder Wand, which one would you choose?
I would choose the invisibility cloak; who wouldn’t want to disappear now and again?
8. What House would you be in?
I am hardworking, patient and loyal so I think I would be best suited to Hufflepuff.
9. If you could meet any member of the cast, who would it be?
From the cast I would like to meet Dame Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, David Thewlis, Gary Oldman, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent and Emma Thompson. I love how many British legends are in these films!
10. If you were on the quidditch team, what position would you play?
I think I would be the seeker. As I am small, so hopefully fast, and have great eyesight.
11. Were you happy with the ending?
I was happy with the ending, however would have been even happier without the 19 years later part. I would have preferred to imagine their future lives.
12. How much does Harry Potter mean to you?
The Harry Potter books will always have a special place in my heart. I was about the same age as Harry as I read the books. J K Rowling’s writing style doesn’t always gel perfectly with me. I have to admire her imagination though. She has created a magical series and wonderful characters, which I really came to love.
Now I tag all the Harry Potter fans out there! Please let me know if you take part too.
