Harry Potter Moment Of The Week

Harry Potter Moment Of The Week

Hey guys, so I don’t seem to be doing too well with this blogging thing lately but once I’m sure my mental health is in a better state then I shall be back regularly! Anway, on to the post.

To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone I’ve decided to do today’s HPMOTW topic as well as a few from the past that I’ve missed too. HPMOTW is a meme started by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows and basically the aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related!. To see the upcoming topics and to find out how to join then please do click on the links!

So, on to topic number one; If you could save only ONE character from death, who would it be?

I would definitely have to choose Sirius for this one. His death is one I’ll never get over. I really wanted to see where his relationship with Harry would go as the series went on and when I got to his death my heart completely broke. Not only because we wouldn’t see more of Harry and Sirius’ relationship but also because just as Sirius was finally finding his freedom, that all got taken away from him and that’s something that hurt me the most.


Topic 2: Favourite moment from Book 1?

My favourite moment definitely has to be when Harry met Hagrid and found out he was a wizard and then goes to Diagon Alley to get all his school items. This is where the story officially starts and it’s where we see the close bond between Hagrid and Harry start to build. The relationship between both these characters is one of my favourites and I feel like it’s extremely underrated considering Hagrid acts like a father figure towards Harry and that’s something I really love about Hagrid.


Topic 3; Favourite Molly Weasley moment?

Okay so this scene gave me life! I absolutely loved seeing a badass Molly Weasley. She’s such a beautiful, kind and caring character and seeing her being protective over her only daughter (like she is with all her kids) and standing up to Bellatrix was one of my favourite things. That woman has balls and it was genuinely one of the best scenes for me.


Final topic; One thing you would change about the movies?

Okay, so there’s so much I would change about the movies but one thing that I’m still annoyed at is the fact they never showed Peeves through the movies. Peeves was such a great character in the books and I felt he added so much humour to the books that it was a shame to leave him out of the films. I especially would’ve loved to see the scenes where McGonagall encourages his bad behaviour. He was such a well thought out character and I feel like leaving him out of the films was a big mistake as it could’ve added so much more to them.


So guys, that’s the end of my HPMOTW post. What are your guys thoughts on everything I’ve answered today? Do you agree? If not, what would your answers be? Let me know in the comments below!!

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me

*i just realised I have two #8s so one will count as a spare wish if it exists because I have no idea what wish I want to get rid of :’)*

Hi guys! So today is the day I’ve finally decided to take part in the Top Ten Tuesday meme. I’ve seen loads of the people I follow take part in it and it looks like fun! Also it gives me a weekly thing to post when I don’t have any reviews to post.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and Bookish.

This week’s topic is: 10 Wishes I’d Ask The Book Genie To Grant Me. YOU DREAM IT AND THE BOOKISH GENIE CAN DO IT!

  1. For an entire room in my house for my own personal library. 

Like who doesn’t want this? A place where I’m surrounded by all my books and can just sit and read for as long as I want without anyone disturbing me.

2. To be able to enter/be part of any story I read.

How amazing would it be if you could jump straight into the book and experience everything along with the characters.

3. To be able to spend the day with my favourite authors with it being one author per day.

I would literally do anything to meet J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, Thomas Hardy etc!

4. For there to be a brilliant adaption of The Mortal Instruments Series.

I honestly didn’t like the City Of Bones movie at all. It felt very rushed and just did nothing at all for the books. I think they were right in choosing Jamie Campbell Bower for the role as Jace lookwise however I feel he tried to hard to get the part right and it just went wrong. Hopefully the series is slightly better but we’ll see.

5. I’d wish for it to be acceptable to read anywhere.

The majority of the time I’m at some sort of gathering etc I just want to sit in a corner and read. Apparently that’s mostly frowned upon.

6. I’d wish for the ability to say the name of a book and it just appear in front of me.

Imagine being able to get any book you want just by saying the name? That would be fab.

7. To meet all my favourite book characters. 

Jace (TMI Series), Levi & Cath (Fangirl), Basically everyone from Harry Potter. Life would be great if I could meet them all.

8. To go to all the Harry Potter theme parks/tours etc.

I want to go to all the Harry Potter themed places but unfortunately at the moment I don’t have money and I’ve been desperate to go to all these places for ages now.

8. To get paid for reading.

Imagine being able to do your favourite thing all day every day and get paid for it? That would honestly be the best thing ever for me. I’d get to spend all day in my own wee library with my cats, eating food and to be honest, what more could you really need in life?

9. For Scotland to have their own Book Festival/BookCon.

I hardly ever see any type of book festival advertised in Scotland other than the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I’m desperate for there to be a Book Con type thing here though.

10. For J.K. Rowling to release a series about the Marauders’ time at Hogwarts.


So, there we have it, my 10 wishes for the Book Genie! I had a lot of fun doing this and I look forward to doing this again next week.

What would you guys wish for? Let me know in the comments below or even take part in this meme!

IT’S BEEN 18 YEARS

IT’S BEEN 18 YEARS

Can you believe that it’s been 18 YEARS since Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone was released? 18 YEARS!!!!

This was one of the very first books I ever received and obviously as I was really young my parents used to read me a chapter each night before I went to sleep. I remember loving the books and when the movie came out my parents took me to see it and it was something they continued to do each time the movies came out. Harry Potter was such a huge part of my childhood and I was gutted it ended. BUT…

J.K ROWLING ANNOUNCED THAT THERE IS GOING TO BE A HARRY POTTER PLAY AND I AM SO EXCITED! It’s going to be called Harry Potter And The Cursed Child. Not much has been said about it but it will open in London next year and tickets go on sale sometime in Autumn! London is a place I’ve been dying to visit for a long time now and I was supposed to go last year but unfortunately couldn’t afford it at the time. I’m praying I can finally go next year and it means I can see the play as well as go to the Harry Potter Studios. It would be such an amazing weekend for me to be able to do it so after my holiday I’m going to start saving to make it happen! I am so happy there’s something else Harry Potter wise to look forward to!

How do you guys feel about the news? Are you all excited?

So although I’m very late, I just discovered this brilliant meme started by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows. I instantly had to join in as I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter. Basically the aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related!.

This weeks topic is: Who would you take to the Yule Ball?

For me, I would probably take Ron Weasley. 

Ron was definitely one of my favourite characters in the Harry Potter series. He always had me laughing and was just an all round great character. He’s also a great friend so I know I’d have a night full of laughs and someone to walk me back to my dorm and look after me if he was my date to the Yule Ball.

What about you guys? If you had to choose, who would you take to the Yule Ball?

Leave a comment and let me know who and why!
