You guys know that I love Harry Potter– related things (at least I hope you do) and I love books… and book tags. So it wasn’t difficult for me to pick this one as a post on eLitere. You can find the video on youtube, on BangadyBangz (I don’t know who created the tag). Could someone give me a time-turner or something? I’d use that extra time to read the books and watch the films again.
Expecto Patronum – a childhood book connected to good memories
I don’t really have just one. When I think of my childhood, fairytales come to my mind. I can’t imagine those years without stories read from books or told by my grandfather and grandmother.
Expelliarmus – a book that took you by surprise
The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros. I need to re-read it soon , I loved it.
Priori Incantatem – the last book you’ve read
După cutremur (After the Quake) by Haruki Murakami. It was better than I expected, but I still want more, something better from this author.
Alohomora – a book that introduced you to a genre you hadn’t considered before
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, to be honest. But I returned to fantasy only a couple of years ago. Pity, but… c’est la vie.
Riddikulus – a funny book you’ve read
I don’t know. For some reason, I tend to avoid funny books. The only one that comes to my mind is Jurnalul unui vampir.
Sonorous – a book you think everyone should know about
Kostova’s The Historian. Not enough people know of this novel and it’s so good!
Obliviate – a book or spoiler you would like to forget having read
I’m not interested in forgetting spoilers, but I wouldn’t mind forgetting the books I didn’t like. Then again, now that I think about it, I don’t remember much about the characters or the plot of those novels, so it doesn’t really matter. But, to give an example, I wouldn’t complain if I forgot The Painted Veil (Vălul pictat). It’s not that I didn’t like it, but I was expecting a better story than what I found.
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe… and I loved it.
Crucio – a book that was painful to read
Oh, man! Ultima noapte de dragoste, întâia noapte de război by Camil Petrescu. I thought it would never end.
Avada Kedavra – a book that could kill
And Then the Nightmare Came at Last, without a doubt. If you’re here and you know Romanian, look for this novel.
Until next time!
