Bookish Survey: Cast a Harry Potter Spell!


Created by Jasmine @ Flip That Page

The aim of this survey is to cast spells from Harry Potter on certain books.
For more details go here.






Reparo

fixes damaged objects
A book that needs some serious fixing: Lycan Unleashed by Tiffany Allee. I actually finished this book just yesterday so it was easy to pick. I loved the two previous books in this series and this one was just so bad.


Lumos

creates a narrow beam of light
A book that deserves more attention: Daughter of the Sky by Michelle Diener. Also a recent book I read and it was beyond amazing. It definitely deserves more attention, a lot attention actually!


Nox

counters the effects of Lumos
An overhyped book: Divergent by Veronica Roth. A lot of people might want to kill me right now, but although I did like Divergent I didn't think it was anything special.


Accio

summons an object from a significant distance
A book you’re anticipating: Burned by Karen Marie Moning. Kind of hard putting up just one because there are so many I'm highly anticipating. But Burned has got to be the #1!


Alohomora

opens unlocked doors, unless bewitched
A book you want to be more open about: The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. I would love to read these books but they intimidate me so much.


Expecto Patronum

conjures an incarnation of positive feelings
A book that made you cry, or at least want to: Tiger Lily by Jody Lynn Anderson. This book was sooo beautiful but sooo sad. Brilliant book!


Morsmordre

conjures the Dark Mark
A book you wish to mark as one of your favorites: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. This is definitley one of my favorites. The writing was gorgeous and the story amazing!


Petrificus Totalus

petrifies victim
A book you wish to keep forever: The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Yes, a classic one. I just love it so much. 


Protego

shield charm
An intimidating book you keep putting off: The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling. Yeah. I got this for Christmas last year and still haven't read it. 


Riddikulus

used against a boggart
A book with a deceiving synopsis: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. The description of it sounded really great but then it just sucked.


Lacarnum Inflamarae

shoots fireballs
A book you wish to burn out of your mind completely: The Elite by Kiera Cass. Just... awful...


Wingardium Leviosa

levitates objects
A book you wish to reread: Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones. Amazing book!


Avada Kedavra

causes instant death
Worst book EVER: The Elite by Kiera Cass. Again. Ugh.

Stupefy

puts victim in unconscious state
A book with a chapter you couldn’t seem to get over: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost. Chapter 32, yo! :D So hot!


Confundo

causes befuddlement or forgetfulness
A book that generally confused you: A Sealed Fate by Lisa Gordon. This is the only book by this author and it was just all WTF moments throughout it. Yikes.


Crucio

inflicts unbearable pain
A book that was a pain to read: Romancing the Bookworm by Kate Evangelista. My dislike for this book all started with a book being thrown into the ocean by the best friend and since then it was all too awful and painful to read.


Episkey

heals relatively minor injuries
A feel good book that you enjoyed: I'll have to pass with this one. I don't usually real "feel good books". 


Expelliarmus

temporarily disarms an opponent
A book with a swoon-worthy character: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. ADRIAN IVASHKOV! Don't you just love him? <3


Impedimenta

impedes target’s progress
A book that kept you up all night reading: Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. Looooooved this book. 


Silencio

immediate silencing
A book that left you speechless after you read it: Daughter of the Sky by Michelle Diener. This book wow'ed me so much!


Legilimens

allows you to delve into someone’s mind
A book with well-developed characters: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Definitely this book/series! Amazing characters that were all well-developed.


Levicorpus

a spell that turns you upside down
A book that changed your mind about a character from its prequel: The Elite by Kiera Cass. It changed my mind for the worse but still it was changed. I used to love Maxon in The Selection but now I hate him.

Obliviate

used to hide memories
A book with a story you can’t remember: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. I totally can't remember what happened in this book... And I don't want to.


Peskipiksi Pesternomi

useless spell
A boring book that had absolutely no effect on you: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. So. Damn. Boring.


Reducto

breaks through solid objects
A book that convinced you to reconsider a certain genre: Girl with Guitar by Caisey Quinn. I didn't read a lot of new adult books before this one.


Rictusempra

tickling spell
A book that made you laugh: My Love Lies Bleeding by Alyxandra Harvey. So funny at times. :D

Sectusempra

offensive spell that violently wounds the target
A book that may have scarred you for life: I don't think any book has scarred me for life. So far... 


Tarantallegra

makes you dance uncontrollably
A series finale that made you feel giddy: Oracle of Delphi by Diantha Jones. I love this series. Everytime a book comes out from it I want to dance to I'm So Excited!


Bombarda Maxima

causes an explosion that breaks through obstacles
A book that made you explode with the feels: Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. Again... ADRIAN IVASHKOV, people!


Finite Incantatem

nullifies other spells
A book you thought you’d dislike, but ended up loving: Blood Vine by Amber Belldene. Lately I had read so many wannabe vampire books that I gave up hope to find another great series and then Blood Vine happened!



How about you?

  2. Haha, great answers, Steph! I don't know love for Adrian... (I STILL haven't read that series) but I think I'd probably like him. Everyone I know seems too! LOL.

  3. Yeay, fun you decided to do it yourself too! :D Daughter of the sky is on my reading list, I love Dieners stories. Tiger Lily is brilliant. I can't wait to read Cruel beauty.

  4. HAHA Adrian Ivashkov indeed XD And I think I share in your feelings for The Elite-- somewhat XD I enjoyed the books but the content itself was eyeroll worthy from start to finish. And Maxon TOTALLY regressed. UGH! On the plus side though, I adore Richelle Mead's works! And I haven't read LOTR either but I want to :)

    Thanks for answering this <3
