Harry Potter Spells Tag

January 31, 2016

harry potter spells 1 elitereYou 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.

Imperio – a book you had to read for schoolharry potter spells 2 elitere

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!

    Interesting tag, I like the Latin names of the spells. Here are the books I chose for this tag:
    1.Legendele Olimpului (Legends of Olympus) by Alexandru Mitru because it helped me develop my imagination and consolidate my love for stories and Greece.
    2.God Was Born in Exile by Vintilă Horia because it is profound, dense and full of symbols
    3.The Extraction — the sixth book from Lust, Money & Murder series by Mike Wells
    4.When I See Your Face by Devika Fernando introduced me to Contemporary and Romance
    5. The Satyricon by Petronius, I didn’t think that an Ancient book could bring such a good mood, even if not everything is funny there.
    6.Lust, Money & Murder, because if a person who doesn’t usually read suspense thrillers enjoyed it, then anybody can.
    6.Spoilers are not a big deal to me because I tend to forget them pretty quickly.
    7.Moara cu noroc (The Lucky Mill) by Ioan Slavici and I actually enjoyed it and I would like to reread and review it.
    8.I couldn’t get into The Eyre Affair. I’m truly sorry, Elena dearest! :(
    9. For A Night of Love by Émile Zola because lust and the instinct to kill go sometimes hand in hand

      8. Dishonour on you, dishonour on your cow 😛 Wait, you don’t have one. At least we look at spoilers from a similar point of view.

        C’est la vie, chérie, you just can’t love all the books! I certainly can’t. :)) 😛

          Oh, I haven’t named a book I would like to forget. Well, there are two, actually: Basmul Prințesei Repede-Repede and Fata lui Dracula. Why? Because they were a complete waste of time.

            I would like to re-read the former… and I pretty much forgot the latter. I can’t even remember the names of the characters.

    As a big Harry Potter fan, I LOVE this idea with the spells. Looks like I’ll need to play this one on my blog. :-) Lovely anwers too.
