Thank you to Miriam @ Shadowriverdaleharley for tagging me for the Harry Potter Spells Book Tag! I think this is a great tag to highlight different books that I’ve read in the past!
1. Accio – the summoning charm. An upcoming release you cannot wait to get your hands on.
I can’t wait for Karin Slaughter’s new stand alone – August 21st!
2. Alohamora – the unlocking charm. Favourite series starter.
I loved everything about The Hunger Games (the first book in the series) and it still remains my favourite book in the series.
3. Cheering Charm. A book that gave you all the warm fuzzies.
I re-read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants this year and there was so many fond memories that reminded me of my oldest and bestest friends.
4. Aguamenti – water-making spell. A book that made you ugly cry.
Such an ugly cry, omg that ending…
5. Expecto Patronum – the patronus charm. A bookish hero or heroine you’d want around to protect you in real life.
6. Lumos – creates light. A book you intentionally spoiled for yourself.
I read a Court of Thorns and Roses and then read spoilers for the other 2 books, which I most likely won’t read.
7. Imperio – the imperius curse. A book you wish you could make everyone read because you love it so much.
One of my favourite thrillers and I feel like everyone needs to read it!
8. Engorgio – engorgement charm. A book series you wish never ended.
I could read 20 more Harry Potter books!
9. Wingardium Leviosa – levitation charm. A book with an uplifting mood or message.
Love this book, so many inspiring women!
10. Obliviate – memory charm. A book you wish you could forget you ever read.
I hated this book and every time I think about it, it makes me angry for the time I wasted reading it. Thankfully it was a very short read!
11. Anapneo – clears the target’s airways. An author whose books always get you out of a slump.
Karin Slaughter all the way!
12. Jelly Legs Jinx. A swoon-worthy hero or heroine.
I don’t know if swoon is the right word, but I love Myron Bolitar! And he reminds me of my husband!
13. Arresto Momentum – slows down the target. A book that caused you to drop everything and read it.
Anything Liane Moriarty! I always read her books so quickly since I can never put them down!
14. Crucio – the cruciatus curse. A book that was painful to read.
This series got so painful to read.
15. Rictumsempra – the tickling charm. A book that made you laugh out loud.
Starting from the dedications page, I was laughing the whole time!
16. Expelliarmus – disarming charm. A book that made you want to send it flying.
Hated everything about this book, especially the lack of conclusion.
17. Portus – turns an object into a portkey. Bookish world you wish you could visit.
I would be happy just to visit London to see everything Harry Potter related!
18. Stupefy – stunning spell. A book with a shocking twist or ending.
I loved that I knew it was a crazy ending going in, but I never expected it to be that crazy!
19. Avada Kadavra – the killing curse. A character death that destroyed you.
I still remember one character’s death in this novel that just shocked me. I think it was because it was so out of the blue.
20. Finite Incantatum – terminates all spells in the area. Best series conclusion.
I feel like I can’t go with Harry Potter again, so I’ll go with the Lunar Chronicles ending. I loved how you got to see all of the characters again and see how their stories were concluded.
