So now that the #BookADayUK posts are done, Nikki and I will settle into some usual blogging business. Not to stray too far from the fun, however, I am joining a Re-Read challenge! I’ve never done anything of this sort and it’ll be fun! Yes? This challenge is hosted by The Book Journey and I highly recommend you join as well if you’re interested in the Harry Potter series (having never read them) or interested in reading them (if you have!).
I am a 7th year participant, meaning I’ve read all of the books. I’m signed up as a Ravenclaw, so I’m hoping to get my house some serious points! The premise of the read-a-long is to engage with all things Potter. So expect me to write a few continuations to the Harry Potter series I already have going on (such as Harry Potter and the Blanket of Ashes, Platform 9 3/4, and my angry letter to Dumbledore, actually, just check out my Harry Potter tag).
From The Book Journey:
Throughout our 5 months allowed for the Re-Read there will be dates to discuss the book, add your posts, or add comments to the new tab I will have right below the Book Journey Header. You can pop in whenever you want to add your thoughts, look for new contests, etc… check back often – not everything will be posted and I want to keep this as lose as unstructured as possible as that is where I thrive best.
And though I am Team Ravenclaw, I am acknowledging my other side: Slytherin. My little cousin keeps laughing at this but every test I do (I’ve made 5 Pottermore accounts and got Slytherin EVERY single darn time) and other less-authentic tests (such as the Buzzfeed one), they always come back to the same conclusion, I’m a Slytherin. HOWEVER! The Sorting Hat takes into consideration where you’d like to be, and I’ve always thought of myself as a Ravenclaw, so, there it is, I’m entering this Read-A-Long as a Ravenclaw. I see nothing wrong with Slytherin, nothing, I exemplify many, if not all of the house’s traits, but I’d prefer to be a Ravenclaw, thanks. I’d probably be a stalemate like Harry, sitting there for a while while the hat and I wrestle internally.
So there it is. Join the Read-A-Long! Yay!
