Now if you’ve been living under a rock, Hamilton is a Broadway musical about one of America’s founding fathers, treasury secretary Alexander Hamilton and it is told through hip-hop songs. And I, like the rest of the world, am obsessed. It’s the best thing in the world and I can’t believe I didn’t start listening to it sooner. The tag was originally created by MaureenKeavy on Youtube. I thought it’d be a really fun thing to do.

So, here is the Hamilton Book Tag:

1.The Room Where it Happens: A Book World You Would Insert Yourself In

Sorry to be so predictable, but I have to say Harry Potter. If I had the one option to go into any fictional world, it would always be Harry Potter’s world. Always.

2.The Schuyler Sisters: An Underrated Female Character

So I wanted to say Ginny Weasley, but I need to stop limiting myself to Harry Potter. So instead, I’m going to say Lesley, from the Ruby Red Trilogy. Lesley is the definition of a best friend. She’s always there for Gwyn whenever she needs her and she’s just the best.

3.  My Shot: A character that goes after what they want and doesn’t let anything stop them

Yael from Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. She literally goes after what she wants. She sets out and competes in a motorcycle race to kill Hitler. It’s known to be dangerous and she has to impersonate someone else in order to do it, but she is determined to kill Hitler and does whatever necessary to do so.

Harry Potter Tag

Hello, all! True to my word (for once) I’m here to post for the second time this week. That’s an improvement from what I’ve been doing the past months. Anyway, a couple days ago I saw another book blogger post “Cursed Child Countdown:  Ultimate Harry Potter Tag” and it seemed like a really fun little post to do in appreciation of the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play and script book release.


It was originally created by Just Keep Reading on Youtube a couple years ago.

Mild spoilers.

1.Favorite Book

I’m going to go with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. To me, it’s always the one that stands out. And we get to see Draco’s character change and develop with the threats of Voldemort. I loved the climax of this book, how everyone seemed to be holding their breaths. I loved Slughorn and Harry and Ginny’s relationship.

2. Least Favorite Book

This is really hard for me to choose, but I’m going to go with Chamber of Secrets, not because I didn’t enjoy it, but because if I were to reread any of the Harry Potter books, this one isn’t one I’d gravitate towards. It’s a great book, I love the events and the characters, it’s just not the most “dazzling” of the books.

3. Favorite Movie

I’m torn between Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1 and Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m just going to stick to both of these. I loved Lupin in the third film and I just loved Hermione and Ron in this movie. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1, we get to see Bill and Fleur’s wedding, something I was really looking forward to in the films.

4. Least Favorite Movie

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I loved the book, but I felt that the movie left out many things (understandably) and it didn’t really have that many interesting plot points to it.
