Harry Potter Spells Book Tag

This is my first book tag on the blog and it was created by the lovely Sarika from Between The Pages. I thought it was such a cool idea and I’m a massive Harry Potter fan, so I decided to give it a go.

Accio: An upcoming release you wish you could get your hands on now

I have quite a few books that could fit under this prompt, but that could be a whole other post. The first ones that come to mind are The Curses by Laure Eve, Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake, Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Tomi Adeyemi, The Extinction Trials 3 by S.M.Wilson and The Toll by Neal Shusterman, as they are all continuations of my favourite series.

Alohomora: Favourite series starter

This is a trickier one as I love a lot of series, which you can probably tell from the above answer. I’m going to have to go with Scythe, as it instantly set the dark tone of the series and really made you question what you would do in the situations the characters were thrown into.

Cheering Charm: A Book that gave you all the warm fuzzles

This one has to go to Bookshop Girl by Chloe Coles, as I feel like it just summed me up. It was such a cute, quick read all about loving books and showing your passion for reading.

Aguamenti: A book that made you ugly cry

Any of Adam Silvera’s books turn me into a sobbing mess, but particularly They Both Die At The End and History Is All You Left Me.

Expecto Patronum: A book character you want around to protect you

I would pick Stormchaser from The Extinction Trials series, as if you can survive a continent full of dinosaurs, you’re someone who I definitely want on my side.

Lumos: A book you intentionally spoiled for yourself

I hate being spoiled for a book and won’t glimpse at the last pages. The best example I have for this would be when I was reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth on the bus and the girl sat opposite me asked if I’d got to the part when (redacted) dies. I had only just read the first page.

Imperio: A book you wish you could make everyone read

Again, I have so many books that I could put in here. Off the top of my head, I would choose Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao, the Scythe series by Neal Shusterman, A Change Is Gonna Come, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, The Good Immigrant and The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton.

Engorgio: A book/series you wish had never ended

Is it wrong that I want to keep reading about Kaz Brekker and the rest of the Dregs forever? I need my Inej pirate spin-off.

Wingardium Leviosa: A book with an uplifting message/end

Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu and A Change Is Gonna Come left me feeling quite empowered and wanting to change things.

Obliviate: A book you wish you could forget you ever read

Ironically enough, the girl on the bus was just trying to do me a favour. Allegiant by Veronica Roth or It by Steven King.

Anapneo: An author whose books get you out of a slump

Adam Silvera, Agatha Christie or Neal Shusterman (are you noticing a theme yet?)

Jelly-Leg Jinx: A swoon worthy character

Based off the film adaptation, Peter Kavinsky from To All The Boys I Loved Before. I rarely have crushes on people from books though, as it’s usually the films that swag me.

Aresto Momentum: A book that caused you to stop doing all things until you finished it

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton, We Were Liars by E.Lockhart, Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson, Scythe and Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman and many, many more. I’m very much someone who once they get into a book, they get into a book.

Crucio: A book that was painful to read

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, because I read it shortly after losing someone very close to me. The Knife of Never Letting Go, also by Patrick Ness, when (redacted) dies and The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed.

Rictusempra: A book that had you laughing out loud

I actually did a post about this here, so you can check out my six choices for this prompt there. See, I can be sneaky sometimes.

Expelliarmus: A book you wanted to send flying

It by Stephen King because of the multitude of problems incased within that book. Adriana from perpetual pages explained it far more eloquently than I can here.

Portus: A bookish world you wish you could visit

It has to be The Wizarding World. It’s a no-brainer.

Avada Kedavra: A character death which destroyed you

(redacted) from The Knife Of Never Letting Go. It was just so cruel and unnecessary. Everything from Salt To The Sea and Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys.

Stupefy: A book with a shocking twist/ending

And Then There Were None and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

Finite Incantatem: Best series conclusion

The finale of the Chaos Walking series wrapped everything up so well for me and I love it when the ending isn’t always so obvious.

That’s the end of my answers, but what would your answers be? I’ll tag some specific people on Twitter, but feel free to do this tag as long as you ask Sarika first.

      Thanks for taking the time to read and respond to my post! I fully agree and I’m starting to read the Grisha trilogy, so I will get to The Language of Thorns straight after that. As always, the endless TBR grows. Which books do you think you would choose?

        The Grisha Trilogy was lovely and The Language of Thorns is beautiful. I can’t wait for King of Scars to come out.
        I think a TBR is the perfect example of infinite. Mine just won’t end. 😦
        I’m kinda confused by your last question. (“Which book do you think you would include?”)

        I can’t wait to read through all of Leigh Bardugo’s wonderful writing and I think that’s the same for many, many people. I’ve now edited the question and hope it makes more sense now.
