Harry-Pott-A-Thon Day 11! The end of book 4, the start of book 5, and my Patronus! *SPOILERS*

Harry-Pott-A-Thon Day 11! The end of book 4, the start of book 5, and my Patronus! *SPOILERS*

It has been a few days since I finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; I needed a moment to compose myself.

That ending! Wow!

You can see my predictions here!

How did I not see that coming? Of course it was Mr Crouch’s son, who had long ago been banished to Azkaban where he didn’t actually die, rather traded places with his terminally ill mother and now free, reconnected with old mate Voldemort, cursed and killed his father, and kidnapped Mad-Eye Moody to take his identity at Hogwarts, all the while helping Harry Potter win the Triwizard Cup, that had been turned into a Portkey to send Harry precisely to where Voldemort was waiting to kill him.

Evil words – fighting – blood – stabbing – magic – battle – ghosts – Harry wins and lives to fight through another book!

 

And now it’s time for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Book five.

And a whole 800 pages long!

I’m already 1771 pages into the Harry Potter series, so I may as well keep going.

 

Things aren’t getting any easier for poor Harry. He’s only been a wizard-in-training for four years, yet he’s already had at least four near-death experiences. Fifty pages into the Order of the Phoenix and we can add another close encounter with magic of the dark kind. But this time, Harry “I don’t go looking for trouble” Potter was true to his word – the Dementors came looking for him, all the way to Privet Drive and to his muggle home away from his magic home.

 

As Harry summoned his Patronus to protect him and cousin Dudley from the Dementors, I was inspired to discover my own Patronus.

I headed back to Pottermore and completed the test to see which animal form my most powerful of defensive charms would take.

Would it be a unicorn?

An eagle?

Or a panther?

Nope.

I.

Got.

A.

Hound.

Yep. A Basset Hound.

 

Sure, they are super cute, with their long floppy ears and droopy eyes.

Sure, they are pleasant-natured and easy going.

They would make a delightful pet.

But what are they going to do, lick the Dementors to death??!!

 

What is your Patronus?

I am the only one with a Basset Hound? I need to know! Let me know in the comments below!

I am heading towards the pointy end of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and, with just over 100 pages to go, it is time for…

Harry-Pott-A-Thon Day 9! When Did These Books Get So Big?! *SPOILERS*

Had I known my Harry Potter reading marathon would involve books larger than 600 pages, I may not have embarked on this whirlwind wizarding adventure. But alas,…

  • #currentlyreading When Michael Met Mina
..
Sticking to the theme of refugees in Australia, as I am currently reading They Cannot Take the Sky and also recently read The Bone Sparrow
..
This is YA fiction about Michael, whose parents run the political party called 'Aussie Values', and Mina, who fled Afghanistan with her mother and arrived in Australia by boat.
..
This has some pretty confronting characters but I'm sure is not actually far from reality for many in Australia.
