The Harry Potter Alliance (a non-profit that does good through the internet and bases their “lessons” on the Harry Potter books) is doing Accio Books!, their annual book drive again this year, and with it they’ve created a tag! So I’m gonna do that cus it sounds like lots of fun and I love AB!
What was your favorite book growing up
Besides Harry Potter, I loved the Heartland series (though don’t get me started on the tv show…ugh), T*Witches, Babysitters Club, Nancy Drew, Fear Street, The Hobbit…and a whole bunch of horse books that I can’t remember the names of at the moment. But the books I reread the most (again, besides Harry Potter) were definitely the T*Witches books. I wanted to be a witch desperately (thanks, Harry), and these books were about girls who were a bit older than me but were so cool in my mind. I wanted to be Alex, but was definitely more like Cam.
What’s the best lesson you’ve ever learned from a book?
Do not dwell on dreams and forget to live. Though there are so many from Harry Potter. Loyalty is a huge one, that there are different kinds of bravery. Man I love those books.
What would your dream library look like?
Ooooh. It would be like a cross between the library in Beauty and the Beast and the Gryffindor Common Room. Huge windows with purple curtains, wall-to-ceiling bookshelves with those nifty ladders that slide around the room. Lots of squishy armchairs, couches and beanbag chairs to sit on with a fire place to sit in front of and cozy up to. There’d be a huge table in the middle of the room where I could sit and write or do whatever. Lots of light. Mmmmm.
If you could be any fictional character, who would it be?
Ginny Weasley. She’s so fiery, and I’ve always been shy and quiet, so I’d like to try that out. Also I’ve always wanted red hair (and to have magical powers) so that’d be pretty swell.
What’s your favorite fictional food?
Butterbeer. Man, everything is Harry Potter hey? But seriously, I’ve had the Butterbeer from Universal and it is AMAZING. Definitely my favourite.
What fictional book from Harry Potter would you most like to read?
Hogwarts, a History. I want to know everything there is to know about Hogwarts!
What books are you donating to Accio Books and why?
I’m actually going to be (hopefully) donating a whole bunch to Accio Books! I’m moving to Halifax (more on that in a future post) in July so I need to get rid of a bunch of books and how to better to do it than donating to a good cause? This is my favourite HPA campaign for that reason.
