Pottermore Sorting… Where do I fit?

#harrypotter #pottermore #ravenclaw

Everyone that knows me knows that I am a massive Potterhead (Harry Potter Fan).

I’m 35 going on 11 and still hoping to get my letter to Hogwarts. I mean what isn’t there to love about the world of Harry Potter? It’s full of magic, intrigue, magical creatures and of course Hagrid!

When I saw the films and read the books I thought like most people that Gryffindor was the best house, the coolest house, the house that has all the action however, I was wrong.

I found out about Pottermore and I just had to go take the Sorting Hat Quiz and find out where I truly belonged.

Sure enough I was put into the house which actually represented me better, and I have to say I am proud to be standing with the likes of Luna Lovegood in Ravenclaw.

Everything about Ravenclaw is perfect for my personality type and my character traits, right down to the wit.

Of course I didn’t stop there. I also went to to discover my Wand type, Patronus and my Ilvermorny House. Details of which you can see below.

#harrypotter #pottermore #wand

#harrypotter #pottermore #pukwudgie

#harrypotter #pottermore #patronus

I’d love to know if any of you are Potter fans and what your houses are! Feel free to leave me a comment below letting me know where you fit and if you think it’s an accurate representation of you.

If you have yet to take the quiz, you can do so here.

Thanks for reading.

My Book Journal for 2017

Hey Everyone. 

For Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful deluxe Harry Potter Stationery set. 

Inside it was a really lovely leather hardback notebook. Inside the notebook was some beautiful colour illustrations. 

I honestly had no idea what to do with it, as usual I debated just keeping it as I always do but this year I vowed to only buy what I need and use what I have got. After all a notebook is meant to be written in.

I decided to switch from my ringbound personal planner to this notebook for my reading journal.

I figure with it being Harry Potter it is perfect for bookish love.

Obviously I don’t have much to show with the inside. I have set up my first page so I can show that along with some amazing photo’s of the book itself:) 

I’d really like to see your book journal’s. Are you changing it up for 2017?

Thanks for reading.

Book Review: Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide

Title:  Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide

Author: J.K Rowling 

Publisher: Pottermore

Publication Date: September 2016

Pages: 79

Rating: 5/5

The Blerb:

Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page. 

Review :

Yet another book I love about the Harry Potter world. It was so nice to get that mental image of the Hufflepuff dorms and learn about the inner workings of the castle.

The most enjoyable part for me was reading about Nearly Headless Nick, which had a ballad to accompany the story.

    It was a mistake any wizard could make, 

    Who was tired and caught on the hop, 

    One piffling error, and then, to my terror, 

    I found myself facing the chop. 

    Alas for the eve when I met Lady Grieve, 

    A-strolling the park in the dusk! 

    She was of the belief I could straighten her teeth, 

    Next moment she’d sprouted a tusk. 


    I cried through the night that I’d soon put her right, 

    But the process of justice was lax; 

    They’d brought out the block, though they’d mislaid the rock, 

    Where they usually sharpened the axe. 

    Next morning at dawn, with a face most forlorn, 

    The priest said to try not to cry, 

    “You can come just like that, no, you won’t need a hat,” 

    And I knew that my end must be nigh. 


    The man in the mask who would have the sad task, 

    Of cleaving my head from my neck, 

    Said “Nick, if you please, will you get to your knees,” 

    And I turned to a gibbering wreck. 

    “This may sting a bit” said the cack-handed twit, 

    As he swung the axe up in the air, 

    But oh the blunt blade! No difference it made, 

    My head was still definitely there.” 


    The axeman he hacked and he whacked and he thwacked, 

    “Won’t be too long”, he assured me, 

    But quick it was not, and the bone-headed clot, 

    Took forty-five goes ’til he floored me. 

    And so I was dead, but my faithful old head, 

    It never saw fit to desert me, 

    It still lingers on, that’s the end of my song, 

    And now, please applaud, or you’ll hurt me.

These short stories are fun and enticing. they make me want to read the Harry Potter series all over again.

Thanks for reading.

Book Review: Hogwarts Short Stories of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

TitleHogwarts Short Stories of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies. 

AuthorJ.K Rowling

PublisherPottermore From J.K Rowling 

Pages: 68

Format: Kindle only

Rating:  5/5

The Blerb:

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way. 
Review :

I love love love this book. I really enjoyed reading about the lore of the Harry Potter world and the past of the characters we love.

I didn’t know what to expect but these compliment the Harry Potter novels so much. If you are a die-hard Potterhead like I am then you will absolutely be absorbed in the world all over again. J.K Rowling has added depth to a world I already wished to be part of.

Massively recommended from me!

Thanks for reading.

UglyBugDoes August Unveiling

To say I was excited about this box is somewhat of an understatement. Michelle had of course given us the theme and a couple of peeks throughout the month but even the main box contents were kept a relative secret from the design team.

The theme was Famous Boy Wizard which of course was inspired by the amazingly magical Harry Potter. Now…I don’t mind admitting I am a massive Potterhead. I love Harry Potter and all things Potterised so this was an amazing box.

Michelle puts such effort and quality in these boxes that they are impossible to love. I am considering spending money I don’t have on another just for the items, especially the pencil case which makes a brilliant sticker storage pouch.

So in this month’s box what did we receive?

*A quill pen

* Pencil Case inscribed with a quote

* Harry Potter inspired sticker kit

* Harry Potter Lego charm

I was lucky enough to get the Hermione charm and although I was sorted into Ravenclaw by the sorting hat quiz on the Pottermore site, she is still one of my favourite characters.

If you would like to get your hands on one of these amazing boxes for yourself, please pop along to the UglyBugDoes Etsy store. Michelle is currently taking a break to get sorted with the end of the summer holidays but she will be back shortly.

Thanks for reading.

Book Review: The Cursed Child

Title: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Author: J.K Rowling

Release Date: July 31St 2016

Page Count: 352

Publisher: Little, Brown 

Rating: 5/5

Plot Overview:

The book starts with Albus Potters first year at Howarts, on the train he meets and befriends Scorpius Malfoy which is much to the disappointment of Rose Granger-Weasley.

The book then skips ahead a few years and shows how the friendship has progressed, peoples growing disappoinment at it and the change in Albus’s attitude. Albus is a very solemn teenager, who has little respect for his father and does not enjoy school. Scorpius on the other hand is a bright, bubbly and enjoyable character.

Albus gets an idea to steal a time Turner, go back in time and prevent Cedric Diggorys untimely death. Albus convinces Scorpius to go with him on this adventure.

However things go wrong as when they change things the first time it changes too much of the future that they then want to correct,  going back again makes things worse as they create a world where Voldemort is now world ruler, Cedric is a Death Eater, Snape is Alive and Umbridge is Headmaster.

On this journey they are also accompanied by Delphi who says she is Amos Diggerys niece.

As it turns out Delphi is actually the child of Voldemort and Bellatrix. Delphi steals the time turner after Albus finally corrects the future and she goes back to when Voldemort attacked Lily and James Potter.

Delphi believes if she can prevent the attack it will eventually lead to Voldemort living and taking over the world. However Harry, Hermione, Ron and Draco manage to prevent her from taking action.

The book ends with Harry and Albus finally seeing eye to eye. Harry has an appreciation for his friendship with Scorpius and will no longer stand in there way.

The world is corrected and goes back to what it was prior to interference.

Review:

I had been waiting for this book for what felt like a lifetime. I pre-ordered it for £10 from Amazon (I was refunded £1) after it’s release.

It arrived on the 31st July and I started reading it on the 1st August after speed reading and finishing the book I was reading. I finished it on the 2nd August.

Due to the script style writing the content is not as dense as the previous books so doesn’t take long to get through.

I was worried at first that it would take me a while to get into the story as I’ve never read a book that’s a script before but it didn’t take long at all.

I was immersed straight away, getting to learn about the new characters. Scorpius is a particular favourite,  you wouldn’t think he was the son of Draco.

I felt like I had been transported back into the world of Harry Potter the same was as when I read the previous books for the first time.

When it ended I wanted more and I am still hoping that J.K Rowling decides to release it as a full novel or write another.

I liked the way previous characters made a small appearance despite some of them meeting a sticky end in the original books.

During this book you get more of a human feel for Draco, understanding some of his motivations and his way of appreciating Harry and the others.

I really enjoyed the story and it’s progression.

Thanks for reading.
