Since it’s September, the month all our favourite characters head off to Hogwarts, I thought this was the perfect tag to participate in.
I originally saw this tag on Beth’s blog over on BooksNest.co.uk.
Here are the questions:
EXPECTO PATRONUM // A childhood book connected to good memories?
Double Act by Jacqueline Wilson was one of my favourites when I was younger. I loved getting lost in the pages and would reread it over and over again.
EXPELLIARMUS // A book that took you by surprise?
The Fall Guy by James Lasdun took me by surprise. It was a fantastic thriller. I wasn’t expecting it to be so good. I would highly recommend.
PRIOR INCANTATO // The last book you read?
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. I loved this book so much. It was so sweet and heartwarming.
ALOHAMORA // A book that introduced you to a genre you’d never considered before?
I’ve never been a huge horror fan, but I loved Bird Box by Josh Malerman. I’ve been tempted to pick up more books in this genre.
RIDDIKULUS // A funny book you’ve read?
Always a Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk. I love lighthearted books and this one is very entertaining.
SONORUS // A book you think everyone should know about?
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen is very underrated in my opinion. This story has so much depth and is one I always reread. While the plot deals with difficult topics, and is at times sad, it is still a great page-turner with wonderful characters.
OBLIVIATE // A book or spoiler you would like to forget you ever read?
I wish I hadn’t wasted my time reading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I didn’t get the hype at all. It was confusing and boring.
IMPERIO // A book you had to read for school?
I read Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald in school. I loved them so much that I have reread them since finishing my studies.
CRUCIO // A book that was painful to read?
I did enjoy reading Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney but it was a lot darker than I had anticipated. At times, it was hard to read as it got quite depressing.
AVADA KEDAVRA // A book that could kill (interpret as you will)?
I’m not sure how to answer this one but I think I’m going to pick the Harry Potter series (particularly The Deathly Hallows) just because I still can’t get over the fact a lot of my favourite characters died.
