I was browsing through social media the other day and I came across a post by one of my favourite bloggers Jenny In Neverland called The Harry Potter Tag. Well, obviously I just had to check it out! In the post, Jenny answers 17 questions on Harry Potter (books and films) and I wanted to join in too!
I adore Harry Potter, I have done since the first film came out and I discovered the magical world of HP. After I saw the film, I read the books and I haven’t stopped reading them since. I am obsessed. If I got my letter today, I would honestly go back to school, no hesitation!
I just love getting lost in the books (when I can!). They feel like home, if that makes sense? No matter how I’m feeling or where I am, they make me feel safe and content. Do you have a book like that? Or are you reading this like, ‘Lisa, what are you talking about??’
Ahem, let’s move on, shall we?
If you want to find out what your house, Patronus and wand are, head over to Wizarding World.
1. What House Are You In?
I was sorted into Slytherin house. At first, I was a bit disappointed because everyone wants to be a Gryffindor, right? But after reading the qualities of a Slytherin I started to feel better. Apparently, we are sleek, powerful and misunderstood. Totally me.
2. What Is Your Patronus?
A Crow. I had a little Google of the qualities of a crow and apparently they are very intelligent. They are also known for their loud and distinctive ‘CAW CAW’ sounds so, you know, same.
3. What Is Your Wand?
Cedarwood with a phoenix feather core, 9 ¾” and reasonably supple flexibility.
4. What Would Your Boggart Be?
This is such a tricky one. An easy answer would just be a spider.
Otherwise, it would be same as Jenny, which is death or the unknown. But I don’t know what the unknown looks like. So, maybe that or a clock. I hate that time moves on so quickly and there is not a thing I can do about it.
Whoa, that got deep.
5. What Position Would You Play In Quidditch?
To be honest, I probably wouldn’t make the team. But if I did, I would probably like to be a Seeker.
6. Would You Be a Pure-blood, Half-blood or Muggle Born?
Tricky. I feel like I would probably be a muggle born, but Slytherins normally only take pure-bloods, so honestly I am not sure?
7. What Job Would You Want To Have After Leaving Hogwarts?
Probably similar to my dream job now – to own a cafe or bakery with a little shop on the side filled with trinkets.
Or a wandmaker, that would be pretty cool. I actually have a Harry Potter wand. Yes, I am that cool.
8. Which Of The Deathly Hallows Would You Choose?
The Invisibility Clock, it has to be. Sometimes it’s nice just to be able to disappear for a minute, compose yourself and come back ready and fighting. And also to spy on people!!!
9. Favourite Book?
I remember in school, someone had Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban and I read a few paragraphs. I later went to see The Philosopher’s Stone at the cinema and read the book but I’ll always remember that ‘magic feeling’ I got from reading The Prisoner of Azkaban.
10. Least Favourite Book?
None of them. I love them all.
11. Favourite Film?
Probably The Philosopher’s Stone. I suffer from anxiety and I have a few films that I watch on repeat constantly when I’m going to sleep as they calm me down. The Philosopher’s Stone is always top of the list.
12. Least Favourite Film?
Again, none of them.
13. Favourite Character?
Hagrid. I love Hagrid. He is so sweet and kind. I used to dread something happening to him in the books.
14. Least Favourite/Most Hated Character?
Can anybody really answer anything other than Umbridge! Well, maybe Volde-…..You Know Who.
15. Favourite Teacher At Hogwarts?
Possibly Flitwick, possibly McGonagall. I feel like you’d be able to have a laugh in Flitwick’s class. And obviously McGonagall because she’s awesome.
16. Least Favourite Teacher At Hogwarts?
17. Do You Have Any Unpopular Opinions About The Series?
Nope. I’m one of those crazy fans that loves everything about it 🤣🤣
And just because I’ve been talking about Harry Potter, here are some of the pictures from my trip to Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London:
This was honestly, one of THE best days out that I have ever had. Look at the excitement on my face on the first picture!!
I actually had so much fun with this post. I’ve been feeling a bit flat and sad recently and this has really cheered me up!
I’d love to hear your answers to these questions. Who are your favourites? What would your boggart be? Let me know in the comments!
