Today we have something a little bit different, having seen it on Twist In The Taile‘s blog. This tag requires you to pick four books (I chose the four sitting next to me at the time of writing this post, both for convenience and randomness), which dictate your wizarding life. My four are: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (MBY), The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins (TGOTT), Missing, Presumed by Susie Steiner (MP) and Dear Charlie by N.D. Gomes (DC).
1. Your wand
Open book 1 at a random page. The first noun you see will be what your wand is made of
Ear (MBY) – hopefully not George’s missing one
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 you’re petless
No pet (TGOTT) – nothing is mentioned to my knowledge
3. Your Hogwarts House
Open book 3 at a random page. Whatever House you think the first character you see belongs to is your House
Manon (MP) possesses character traits that could well belong to a number of houses, but as a smart police detective, I’d place her in Ravenclaw.
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
Sam and Charlie (DC) – both are deeply troubled young men (indeed Charlie commits a mass murder). Sam proves his strength in dealing with Charlie’s massacre, and he is incredibly loyal.
5. Your Head of House
Open book 1 at a random page. The first name you’ll see will be your Head of House
Will Traynor (MBY) – I love Will. He’s so smart and holds strong beliefs, although he is quite self-absorbed.
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
Tom (TGOTT) – without spoiling the plot, I do find Tom to be a creepy individual
7. Your Patronus
Open book 3 at a random page. The first living creature you’ll see will be your Patronus
Sniffer dog (MP) – I love dogs, and actually have a cocker spaniel, so this is perfect
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!
222 (DC) – oh well, it’s not all about winning
That was fun!!
