My Harry Potter Life Tag

Guys I created another tag (yes even though I have tags from like last year that I still need to do)! This time it’s to determine what your Harry Potter live would look like.

HOW IT WORKS

You pick four books and follow the instruction for each question.

MY FOUR BOOKS

1. The Raven Boys
2. The Last Ever After
3. Carry On
4. Winter

1. YOUR WAND

Open book 1 at a random page. The first noun you see will be what your wand is made of

Okay so my wand is made of ‘breeze’. Wonder how that will work. Maybe I’m an Airbender

2. YOUR PET

Does book 2 have animals? One of those animals will now be your pet. If the book doesn’t have any animals, then I’m sorry but your pet-less. 

I know The Last Ever After has several animals, but the only ones I can remember are the rats. I do not want rats as pets. After doing some research I remembered that Agatha had a cat, so I’ll have a cat

Or two. Or more

3. YOUR HOGWARTS HOUSE

Open book 3 at a random page. Whatever House you’d think the character’s name you first see belongs to, is your House (woah that’s a weird sentence, hope that made sense)

Simon Snow. Honestly, I see Simon as a little Puff like me (and I’m not just saying that to keep my House lol). I mean he can be a Gryffindor too, of course, but in my heart he’s a Puff (don’t ask me for arguments I need to reread the book)

4. MAKE YOUR GOLDEN TRIO COMPLETE

Open book 4 at a random page. The first two names will be your best friends and complete your squad. If there’s only one name at said page, open another random page.

I swear if one of the first two I see is Levana… Cinder oh thank the Stars. And Kai!

I love my little trio

5. YOUR HEAD OF HOUSE

Open book 1 at a random page. The first name you’ll see will be your Head of House

Gansey. I think he’d make a pretty decent Head of House, if he’s even at Hogwarts and not looking for Glendower

6. YOUR ‘DRACO MALFOY’

Naturally you’ll need your arch nemesis/school rival. Open book 2 at a random page, the first name you’ll see will be your enemy.

AGATHA WHY I’VE ALWAYS LOVED YOU WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS *whispers* We’ll work through this

7. YOUR PATRONUS 

Open book 3 at a random page. The first living creature you’ll see will be your Patronus

Penny. Penny is my Patronus haha. She’ll keep me save *nods* (also I love her and she’s one of my spirit animals so this is pretty accurate)

8. WILL YOU WIN THE HOUSE CUP?

How many pages does book 4 have? That’s how many points you’ll House have at the end of the school year. If the book has more than 400 pages it will have won the Cup, congrats!

824 pages that House Cup is mine Muggles

(honestly never thought that I’d ever use a gif of Voldemort laughing but here we are)

I TAG

Angel | Aentee | Elly | Eve | Evi | Sophie | Victoria | Whoever wants to do this!

Once again, if I tagged you don’t feel obligated to do this!

Your Future Book Tag

Thank you Lia for tagging me for this wonderful fun tag! Go check out her awesome blog guys!

So for this tag you pick five books and then pick one of those five books for every two questions. I’ve chosen the following five books:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Clockwork Angel
The Mark of Athena
Cress
The School for Good and Evil

1. Open book 1  to a random page. Look at the first word on the page. If it’s less than 5 letters, you will go to college. If it’s more than 5 letters, you won’t go to college (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)

‘From’ – I will go to college! I’m already in college though haha.

2. Open book 1 to a random page. The first name you see. Think of that persons job, that will be your job. Note: Is that person stil in school? You will be a teacher. You don’t know that persons job? You will be unemployed.

‘Madam Hooch’ – I don’t think I’d be the best person to teach flying to be honest. I think I’d be a Quidditch fan (I could referee the matches, if I didn’t have to fly myself), but flying? I’m siriusly clumsy so I don’t think that’d go well haha. Still, it’d be a pretty awesome job! (HOGWARTS)

3. Open book 2 to a random page. The first name you see will be the person you will marry (Clockwork Angel)

*please be Will, please be Will*

‘Jem’

Okay Jem’s a sweetheart, but WILL.

4. Open book 2 to a random page. The first name you see will be your best friend.

I swear if I get Will this time

‘De Quincey’ – um, HE’s my best friend? Then who are my other friends. I mean, if he’s my BEST one. What kind of friends do I have siriusly.

5. Open book 3 to a random page. Look at the second word on the page. Count how many letters that word has, remove 2 letters. That’s how many children you will have (The Mark of Athena)

OH HELLA NO.

‘Couldn’t’ – that’s seven minus two: five kids. I WILL NOT HAVE FIVE KIDS.

6. How many children did you have? Open the book as many times to see who your children will be. If you have no children, open the book once. The first name you will see, will be something of your choice. A couple of examples: neighbor, father in law etc

Leo – aww I will take good care of you my little flame baby. FLAMEO HOTMAN

Annabeth – Ah yes I can see Annabeth being my daughter. LET ME SHOWER YOU IN BOOKS

Piper – Guys it’s very likely that five out of The Seven will be my kids (ALSO HI PIPER WELCOME TO THE FAMILY)

Hazel – See (HAZEL IS SUCH A CUTIE THOUGH I WILL GLADLY BE HER MAMA)

Okay the next name CAN NOT be Percy, Jason or Frank, since that would ruin my ships (incest = big no)

Frank – damn it. FRANK IS SUCH A CUTIE THOUGH LEMME HUG YOU

Okay so I already consider these guys my babies. I will be a good mama to you all

7. Book 4. Where does this book take place? This will be the place you will live (Cress)

Um futuristic Earth I guess! I’m not sure how I feel about that haha. I love The Lunar Chronicles and I’d love to be friends with the gang, but to live in that world… Maybe after the events of Winter (assuming everything will be alright).

8. Open book 4 to a random place, the first name you see, does this person have a car, bike etc.? That will be your transportation in live. Note: teleporting, broom etc. is allowed. If your character had no means of transportation that you know of, you will be using public transportation.

‘Linh Cinder’ – SPACESHIP HELL YES

9. Does this book have any animals in it? Pick your favorite animal, that will be your pet. No animals in the book? You will have no pet (The School for Good and Evil)

Yes it does! MY PET WILL BE A GIANT PANDA THEN.

10. Open book 5 to a random page. The first name you see will be your enemy.

‘Tedros’ – WHAT DID I EVER DO TO YOU BESIDES LOVE YOU AND SUPPORT YOU AND SHIP YOU WITH YOUR TRUE LOVE. OKAY I HAVE TO ADMIT YOU ANNOYED ME A BIT IN THE LAST EVER AFTER BUT I LOVED YOU FOR THAT BECAUSE IT SHOWED YOUR FLAWED AND HUMANNESS WHY ARE WE ENEMIES

So after college I will teach flying at Hogwarts where I’ll also referee Quidditch matches, I marry Jem (sorry Tessa), become best friends with De Quincey (don’t worry I’ll let my Shadowhunter husband stake him), we’ll have five demigods as kids (so basically I’m adopting them), we will live on Earth but in the future where we fly our own spaceship along with our giant panda while on the run for my enemy Tedros. You know, it has it’s flaws, but it’s a pretty good future.

Review: The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani

thelasteverafter

Genre: Middle grade (though I’ve seen it classified as ya a few times as well), fantasy, fairy tales
Series: The School for Good and Evil #3
Goodreads rating: 4.54
My rating: ★★★★★

 

Warning: Spoilers for the first two books

summary

In the epic conclusion to Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series, The School for Good and Evil, everything old is new again as Sophie and Agatha fight the past as well as the present to find the perfect end to their story.

As A World Without Princes closed, the end was written and former best friends Sophie and Agatha went their separate ways. Agatha was whisked back to Gavaldon with Tedros and Sophie stayed behind with the beautiful young School Master.

But as they settle into their new lives, their story begs to be re-written, and this time, theirs isn’t the only one. With the girls apart, Evil has taken over and the villains of the past have come back to change their tales and turn the world of Good and Evil upside down.

review

Me once I finished it. Also a few times during the book. IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL AND ALL THE FEELS AND THANK YOU SOMAN FOR SUCH A PERFECT CONCLUSION TO THIS WONDERFUL TRILOGY

Two years ago I noticed The School for Good and Evil at the bookstore. The cover drew me in, the blurb told me ‘BUY THIS NOW’. Now, two years later, one of my favourite trilogies has ended.

I have to admit that while I loved A World Without Princes (the second book), it wasn’t as good as The School for Good and Evil. I’m so happy that The Last Ever After was though, maybe even better.

I don’t even know how to describe my feelings towards this book. It was PERFECT. I just…

Except I will be less aggressive while I push the book into your hands and whisper ‘read it read it read it’ into your ear

I especially loved how flawed Tedros was in this book. He really annoyed me at times, but I loved it, because it showed that he’s a three-dimensional character instead of a perfect prince. YAY.

Agatha was just as lovable as in the first two books. No one hurt my baby *looking at you Tedros and Sophie*. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but her character development in this book is beautiful (her entire character development through out the trilogy is). Her relationship with Sophie is even more complicated in this one than in the previous two. Spoiler: I loved that the entire war was dependent on their friendship, on their love for each other. Not romantic love, no, friendship. YES

What to say about Sophie without giving too much away? If you read the previous two books (which I hope you have otherwise there are quite a few spoilers for you in this review) you know she kissed the Schoolmaster to live, giving Evil the chance to wipe out Good. This also means she has to  embrace her inner Evil, though she still tries to be Good. Her struggle is interesting to read, more so than in the previous two books, as while in the first two books everyone told her she was Evil, in this one she acknowledges herself that she is.

I also loved that while there’s a clear Evil and Good, there are still areas of grey. Not every hero is 100% Good, nor are the villains 100% evil. Spoiler: They help each other and know that one side cannot exist without the other. It’s not so much a war between Good and Evil as a war against the Schoolmaster himself.

Then there are the minor characters. HORT HORT HORT. I love Hort (as you may be able to tell haha). I already loved him from the beginning and my baby has grown so much since then. He’s matured a lot and stands up for himself (GO HORT). Also the Coven. I absolutely adore them.

We are also introduced to some famous fairy tale characters, except they’re not exactly how you remember them… I especially loved Cinderella and the twist that was put on her story. It’s quite simple, but not something I had thought of!

Okay, so let’s make a list of all the things I liked, so that I can organise my thoughts a bit:

  • The main three characters all had their moments of brilliance and annoying the shit out of me, thus showing they were realistic, flawed human beings. Also, they made me cry. But Agatha and Sophie always make me cry
  • THE PLOT TWISTS LIKE HOLY SHIT.

This gif is kind of hypnotising me while I write the rest of this list…

  • The twists on certain fairy tales (besides Cinderella there’s another one that I don’t really see as a fairy tale, but I won’t tell you which one as it can be a bit of a spoiler)
  • The character development, mostly of the three main characters, but also Hort
  • Finding out more about the Woods
  • THE FINAL EPIC WAR LIKE YES
  • ALL THE FEELS
  • Agatha and Tedros’ relationship was realistic and beautiful and cute and-

  • Of course the writing style. I loved the writing style
  • The ending. IT WAS PERFECT.

And oh so much more that 1) I can’t put into words and 2) I won’t tell you because SPOILERS. If you’re reading this and haven’t read the book yet, go read it now. If you’re reading this and haven’t read the entire trilogy yet, GO DO IT NOW. And sorry for the spoilers, but I did warn you so I guess you don’t mind?

HAVE YOU READ THIS BEAUTIFUL CONCLUSION YET. IF YOU HAVEN’T YET GO DO SO NOW. IT’S BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL AND HEARTWARMING AND THERE WILL BE TEARS AND LAUGHS AND SQUEALS 100% RECOMMEND.
