My Harry Potter Bookshelf

IMG_6846

Hello witches or wizards,

Today I’m presenting to you my Harry Potter bookshelf (I know, what a surprise, the title didn’t give it away at all πŸ˜‰ ).

So let’s start off with the books:

IMG_6848

First of, I know, I know, I don’t have the Crimes of Grindelwald screenplay. Who am I?! I’m just afraid that it won’t fit next to my other books, but I will buy it someday (I hope). There’s a second copy of the chamber of secrets on top of the rest of the books for no reason at all. I found it once, took it and put it on top of the books. Now it’s there and it doesn’t bother me, so I leave it there.

Now, we move on to the wands:

Of course I have Hermione’s wand, who’s shocked? No one, as I expected πŸ˜€ . I love that girl sooooo much, and her wand is beautiful! And then I have my wand, the one I got at the Universal Studio’s. I’ll cherish them both forever. πŸ˜‰

Next, we have the chocolate frog cards:

When I bought Chocolate Frogs I was so happy because I got great cards as you can see. The ones I’m the most grateful for are the one with Helga Hufflepuff (of course, as a proud Hufflepuff πŸ˜‰ ) on it and the Albus Dumbledore one (of course, as a proud Hogwarts student πŸ˜‰ ). And it was actually quite interesting to receive the Bertie Bott card because not a lot of people have it.

After that there is a chocolate frog “box” (I don’t know how to call it):

I really like this one, it’s made out of ceramic and it’s really, really nice. I don’t have much to say about it. Of course it didn’t come with a chocolate frog or card in it, it’s just a display peace. But a really nice one.

And, lastly, I just have some bits and bots to show you that make up some of the details:

At the far left you can see a book holder (in the picture at the beginning of the post you can see that it’s on both sides of the books). When I saw it in the shop, I was thinking: “These ones are nice πŸ˜€ “. And when I was putting my shelf together it ended up there which I think is great because it fits well with the theme.

Next we have a keychain of Hermione that my mom managed to put there. I love Hermione and love this keychain so I’m really happy with it there.

Then we have the Ollivander box my wand came in. I wanted to keep the box and it was nice in the back next to the golden leaf so I left it there, and again it fits really well.

And last of the last, Harry’s glasses that were from a costume that we had for so long. Even before I read the series, and I think the costume was my brother’s. And under that there is a Gryffindor coaster that I got from a bookshop when I bought the Cursed Child.

That is it, thanks for reading my post. Hope you liked it! And see you next time (I can’t really “see” you, but you get it πŸ˜‰ )!

It’s about a boy that discovers he’s a wizard. (You know the story. πŸ˜‰ )

My second is the book from John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

It’s a great book about a girl that has cancer and meets a boy that had cancer.

My third favorite book is also from John Green, Paper Towns.

It’s about a boy that goes looking for the girl he’s in love with after she disappeared.

P1000348

My fourth favorite is from Nicola Moriarty, The Fifth Letter.

It’s a great book about four friends. Three of them write one letter, except one that writes two.

P1000355

My fifth favorite is from J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings.

It’s about a ring that has a lot of power and that has to be destroyed before it falls into the hand of the enemy.

P1000350

And finally, my eighth favorite is from John Green (I had a John Green period this year πŸ˜‰ :-D), Turtles all the way down.

It’s a great book about a girl that has difficulties with her mind and learns to control it.

I haven’t read this one yet but it’s the next one I’m gonna read:

P1000351

It’s from Karen M. McManus, One of Us is Lying.

It’s about five people that have detention, and one gets killed. Who killed him? (Don’t answer this question it’s just to make it exciting πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ )

Thank you Life Like a Galaxy GirlΒ for recommending this book. I really want to read it.

That was it. I hope you liked, πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

HARPs points: 19

PS: I don’t have any picture for The Fault in Our Stars because I lent it to a friend so she can read it.

Books you could like if you loved reading Harry Potter.

Hello witches or wizards,

Today I am going to write about books you could like if you loved reading Harry Potter.

You could like “The Lord of the Rings”, a series of three books. I’m reading it right now and I’m loving it. The only thing : I think the adventure is a little bit complexe especially following which way they take. I’m at the beginning of the third book and like I said I’m really loving it.

You could also like “The Stories of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel”, a series of six books. When he was young Nicholas Flamel went to Beauxbatons, he went through a lot of adventures with his twins friends. I bought the whole series, and I’m going to read it after “The Lord of the Rings”.

“The chronicles of Narnia” are also good books. It’s a series of seven books written by C.S. Β Lewis. I haven’t read the books, but I have seen the movies. It’s series about kids that discover a new world.

There’s also “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” that’s written by Rick Riordan. It’s a great series of five books based on the Greek mythology. It’s about Percy, Annabeth and Grover that have a lot of adventures. I read the first book, and I’m definitely going to read the rest of the series.

Of course there is the screenplay from “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, it’s one book. And it’s written like “the cursed child”, but it’s a different story. The second one, “The crimes of Grindelwald” will come out on the 16th of November 2018.

That was it, I hope you liked it. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

2 new Harry Potter books

Hello witches, or wizards, today I am going to write about 2 new Harry Potter books. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰

I recently discovered that there are two new books from Harry Potter that are going to come out on October 20th.

So I’m going to talk about the two new books, and give you some information about it. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

First of all, the two books don’t talk about Harry Potter, they talk about the wizarding world, just like quidditch through the ages,Β Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide,Β The Tales of Beedle the Bard,…

The titles of the books are:Β “Harry Potter: A History of Magic, The Book of the Exhibition” andΒ “Harry Potter, A Journey Through a History of Magic”.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic, The Book of the Exhibition talks about the subjects studied at Hogwarts.

AndΒ Harry Potter, A Journey Through a History of Magic talks about a historical journey of the wizarding worldΒ and delves into the stories behind spells, magical creatures, and wizards and witches.

That was it, I hope you are going to like the new books πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€
