To celebrate this very exciting, I'm going to be doing another Potter-themed book tag. This one's all about the spells! This tag was created on youtube years ago (I am so good at keeping with the times), but I actually can't track down the original creator. If you know who made this please let me know so I can credit them!
1. EXPECTO PATRONUM - A CHILDHOOD BOOK LINKED TO GOOD MEMORIES
This is so predictable for me, but I have to say it. The Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis isn't just one of my favourite series, it's the one that really got me into reading and introduced me to the fantasy genre that I know love so much. I have so many good memories with these books.
2. EXPELLIARMUS - A BOOK THAT TOOK YOU BY SURPRISE
3. PRIOR INCANTATO - THE LAST BOOK YOU READ
I haven't been reading very much in July (mostly because I've been writing non-stop for Camp NaNoWriMo), so the last book I read was actually weeks ago. It was You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan and I really enjoyed it. My full review went up a couple of days ago if you want to read more!
4. ALOHAMORA - A BOOK THAT INTRODUCED YOU INTO A GENRE YOU HADN'T CONSIDERED BEFORE
5. RIDDIKULUS - A FUNNY BOOK YOU'VE READ
From the premise, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl doesn't sound like a book you should be laughing out loud at. It's about a girl with cancer, which is obviously heart breaking, but the main character is hilarious and sarcastic and I just couldn't stop myself from laughing in public.
Unfortunately, Allegiant by Veronica Roth fits both parts of that question for me. Not only was I spoiled for the major character death in this book by my friend, but it was definitely the weakest in the series and I thought some of the events took away from the story as a whole.
8. IMPERIO - A BOOK YOU HAD TO READ FOR SCHOOL
9. CRUCIO - A BOOK THAT WAS PAINFUL TO READ
10. AVADA KADAVRA - A BOOK THAT KILLS (INTERPRET AS YOU WILL)
Thanks for reading! I need to start packing...
