Harry Potter #43

This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come in the Harry Potter section of my blog here.  


Which of the magical schools would you attend?
I didn't find this topic as easy as I expected. I expected to be instantly Hogwarts, but there's something about Beauxbatons which fascinates me. I wish we could have learnt more about the other schools as well as Hogwarts. Perhaps each task was at a different school haha. That would have been impossible to write alongside the Voldemort plot, I know, but I can dream. Saying that though, I would have to pick Hogwarts. There's something so comforting about it.

"The stories we love best do live in us forever. So, whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."
- J. K. Rowling

The 2013 topics for this meme are coming to an end so I'm going to be working on making some more soon. If you guys have anything that you'd like to see on the list, please let me know :) xx

  1. I would have loved to have gotten a glimpse of the other magical schools, too. You're right, though- having each task take place at a different school definitely would have put a damper on Voldemort's plans, lol. This meme is so much fun- can't wait to see the 2014 topics! :D

  2. Yeah, I find Beauxbatons oddly fascinating too, but I think that for me a lot of that has to do with the fact that it's located in Southern France *swoon* That and I'd like to see how their palace is different than the castles at Hogwarts & Durmstrang! Like you, I wish we'd been able to explore the other schools at least a bit XD

    Oh and I'm with Lee, I'm excited to see what awesome topics you'll have for us in 2014!! xxx

  3. Awesome pick! I picked the same, of course. Just cannot forsake Hogwarts! :D
    Learning more about the school would be awesome, I wouldn't mind at all. I really hope that Potter Encyclopedia is in the making... Maybe it will be in there. :D

    Oh and a topic for NYs: What magical drink is warming you through the cold? :) I think I'd go with butterbeer but I never tried it yet...
