I found this over on my friend Becky’s new blog (check her out here) it combines three of my favourite things, Harry Potter, books and fun tags. So, here we go! Remember I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
- Expecto Patronum – a childhood book connected to good memories
Lola Rose – Jacqueline Wilson
This was the first time I met an author I really admired and got a book signed. It was the first time I saw an author as a real person and she signed in pink pen. Pink. Pen.
2. Expelliarmus – a book that took you by surprise
How to Be a Woman – Caitlin Moran
I tried reading this initially when it was first released, but I was too young to get it and thought she was a bit mad. I read it again last Summer before starting a Writing Women class and it changed my life and made me embrace feminism. I never thought it would become one of my favourite books.
3. Prior Incantato – The last book you read
Radio Silence by Alice Oseman. So freaking good.
4. Alohamora – A book that introduced you to a genre you hadn’t considered before
Star Wars Moving Target made me realise I might like Sci-fi and give it a go.
5. Riddikulus – a funny book you’ve read
Why Not Me? – Mindy Kaling. Kaling’s second book was MUCH better than her first and had me in stitches.
6. Sonorous – a book you think everyone should know about
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
I cannot describe what this book means to me, or how much Plath means to me as a writer. There are few books that deserve the title of classic, but The Bell Jar really, really does.
7. Obliviate – a book or spoiler you would like to forget having read
The Storyteller – Jodi Picoult, that spoiler was incredible.
8. Imperio – A book you had to read for school
To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
Most people hate the books they’re forced to read, I on the other hand fell in love with TKAM. It started my love for reading novels about and based in the civil rights era and the treatment of African Americans.
9. Crucio – a book that was painful to read
I’m choosing to see this in the light of a book that was so GOOD it put you in pain emotionally.
The Fault in Our Stars – John Green.
My heart still hurts. Still.
10. Avada Kedavra – a book that could kill (interpret as you will)
Maestra by L.S. Hilton
Sex, Scandal, Murder. Don’t give this book to your Nan, could induce a heart attack.
As always if you’d like to do this tag then go right ahead! Drop me a link in the comments as I’d love to read your responses!
