Harry Potter tag! | Janu-Blog Day 17

a snap from the harry potter studio tour

Saying that I love Harry Potter is an understatement. It remains one of my favourite series of all-time and frequently re-read or re-watch it (sorry Dad!). I thought it would be apt to bring out my inner Potter nerd and do the Harry Potter tag today. Probably needless to say, but there will be spoilers throughout this blog post if you have not completed the series in book or film form!

1. Favourite book?
Goblet of Fire. It's where the series fully turns adult and the writing is excellent.
2. Favourite movie
Deathly Hallows Part 1. Everything came to life from the book so well and every actor is very true to character as I imagined when I read the book.
3. Least favourite book 
There isn't a book in the series that I dislike, but the one I probably care about the least is Prisoner of Azkaban. The first time I read it I struggled to get into it, plus it's before Goblet of Fire which was, as I said before, my favourite in the series.
4. Parts of the books/movies that made you cry
 I didn't cry during the movies, but while reading the books for the first time I sobbed at Dobby's death. I surprisingly didn't cry at any of the human deaths, probably because most of them were very quick and shocking, whereas Dobby's death had the aftermath of Harry digging his grave.
5. If you could hook up with any HP character who would it be?
Probably Ron, because he's a bit of a loser at times and I am too!
6. Favourite character?
Luna Lovegood. This is quite a typical character to have as a favourite, but her quirkiness and courage make her unbeatable.
7. What would your Patronus be?
I just took a very credible Buzzfeed quiz and it told me that my Patronus would be a horse because I'm "loyal, smart and willing to take risks for my friends". Until Pottermore opens its Patronus quiz, I have to rely on this reputable answer from Buzzfeed.
8. If you could have the Resurrection Stone, Invisibility Cloak or the Elder Wand which one would you choose?
I should say the Invisibility Cloak because I know the tale of the three brothers... but who could resist the most powerful magic wand in the world that you could do anything with?
9. What House would you be in?
I'm a Hufflepuff through and through.
 10. If you could meet any member of the cast who would it be? 
Maggie Smith (who played McGonagall) - she's a legendary actress and I think having a chat with her would be incredibly enriching.
11. Were you happy with the ending?
I was - except I'd have loved the epilogue to be an extra five-ten minutes long so we could see what came of other main characters (Neville, Luna, some of the teachers).

I hope you enjoyed this! Let me know your favourite character in the comments if you're a Potter nerd too.
