Today’s prompt for Bookending Winter is “A Very Potter Christmas,” hosted by Broken Soul Reviews, and who am I to pass up a Potter prompt?? If you’d like to join in on this amazing quarterly event hosted by Cuppa Clo and Fictionally Sam, you can check out the event main page here. But enough chit-chat. On to the prompt!
Which Harry Potter book was your favorite and why?
I have always said that Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite because of the Marauders and the details left out of the movie about their backgrounds and stories. I just love meeting Sirius and all of the intricacies of that book. However, I am re-reading the series as an adult and I just finished book 5 and so far I am surprised to say that Order of the Phoenix is my new favorite. Talk about details and little humors that I have never appreciated before! There are so many characters in this book that really shine–the Weasely twins, Luna, Ron…unfortunately almost everyone but Harry.
Which Harry Potter characters are your favorites and why?
Not necessarily in specific order I love Dumbledore and I hate hearing when people give him grief. Since the very beginning (and now, with ‘Fantastic Beasts,’ apparently before the beginning even! what?!) Dumbledore was the man with the plan. He always made sure Harry was taken care of, he was always doing his research, he was always doing his best to stay five steps ahead, and he was incredibly criticized all throughout. Next up is Molly Weasley for being a badass mum to her own children and anyone/everyone her kids brought home. She has the biggest, warmest heart but also is so strong and and kick butt when she needs to be. She is everything I would want to be as a mother. A lot of similarities here with Minerva Mcgonagall. Not only is she a softie for her students at heart, she is incredibly brave, wise, and strong. Honorable mentions for other favorites go to Harry, book Luna, Hagrid, and Lupin.
Who are you taking to the Yule Ball?
