Luna Lovegood - I book I've read that was a little different
One of my favourite things about Patrick Ness is that he is constantly pushing the boundaries of the young adult genre, trying new things, and actually giving young people very interesting and complex stories that aren't patronising in any way. More Than This by Patrick Ness is a novel where the way you personally interpret the story creates a lot of meaning. It's brilliant, intelligent and well worth a read.
Delores Umbridge - A book that I disliked, but had a really nice cover
Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi. The cover is really beautiful and I thought I would really love the story, but sadly I was so disappointed in the ending and reading through reviews on Goodreads it seems that it's a real love/hate kind of book.
The Weasley Twins - A book that made me laugh
The book that instantly popped into my head after reading this question was Fortunately The Milk by Neil Gaiman. So far it's the only work I've read by him and I need to change that fact very soon.
Hermione Granger - A book that made me feel smart for having read it
It's not so much about feeling smart, but I'm so pleased that I picked up The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton this year after so many months of being a little intimidated by its size.
Sybill Trelawny - A book I haven't read yet that I already know I'm going to love
The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. Being critical of work by J.K. Rowling is something I find incredibly difficult, but I'm also so acquainted with her writing style now & I really enjoyed The Cuckoo's Calling that I know I'm going to really like this too!
Severus Snape - A book that pleasantly surprised me
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. This was on my University reading list and I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it, but I was about as wrong as it's possible to be because it's now one of my favourite books of all time.
Harry Potter - A book from my childhood
It doesn't feel right choosing a book that's not from the Harry Potter series for this last question considering they were such a big part of my childhood reading. I've already talked a lot about The Prisoner of Azkaban because it's my favourite, so I thought I'd mix it up a little and go with the very first from the series, The Philosopher's Stone. It's so magical and holds so many good memories - I was constantly hoping that Hagrid might arrive on my 11th Birthday and whisk me away to Hogwarts!
I tag you!
