Cast a Harry Potter spell (part 2)

cast2

You can find Part 1 and the introduction over here: Cast a HP spell part 1, cast a spell.  Jasmine from Flip that page made this awesome survey where we can cast Harry Potter spells on books. She made a list with spells and now I get to pick books that fit with the spell.


 Stupefy
puts victim in unconscious state.
A book with a chapter you couldn’t seem to get over: J.K Rowling – Harry Potter and the deadly hallows. If you know my favorite character, you might know which chapter I’m talking about. 


Confundo
causes befuddlement or forgetfulness
A book that generally confused you: Erin Jade Lang – ButterI still don’t get this book. 


Crucio

inflicts unbearable pain
A book that was a pain to read: Jane Nickerson – Strands of bronze and gold. I was expecting so much of this story and it was a huge disappointment.


Episkey
heals relatively minor injuries
A feel good book that you enjoyed: Bridget Zin – PoisonThis book is adorable! Sweet love interest, humor, a fun plot and the cutest pig ever.


Expelliarmus
temporarily disarms an opponent

A book with a swoon-worthy character: I have far too many book boyfriends.. Duvall, Sturmhond, Thorne, I don’t know where to start!


Impedimenta
impedes target’s progress
A book that kept you up all night reading: Rae Carson – The girl of fire and thornIf you’ve read this book, you know why. If you haven’t, go read it.


Silencio
immediate silencing
A book that left you speechless after you read it: John Green – The fault in our stars. I never thought this book would touch me so much.


Legilimens
allows you to delve into someone’s mind
A book with well-developed characters: I can think of many books, especially some titles I already used here, but I want something new so I’m going for: Jessica Day George – Princess series


Levicorpus
a spell that turns you upside down
A book that changed your mind about a character from its prequel: Leigh Bardugo – Siege and storm. I first liked Mal, but now.. not so much.


Obliviate
used to hide memories
A book with a story you can’t remember: Jocely Davies – A beautiful dark. The only thing I remember is: it was bad..


Peskipiksi Pesternomi
useless spell
A boring book that had absolutely no effect on you: Mette Ivie Harrison – Princess and the hound. Nothing happens..


Reducto
breaks through solid objects
A book that convinced you to reconsider a certain genre: Marissa Meyer – Cinder. I never liked Sci-Fi books until I read this one. Now I’m hooked.


Rictusempra
tickling spell
A book that made you laugh: Rachel Hawkins – Hex Hall. Sophie is hilarious!


Sectusempra
offensive spell that violently wounds the target
A book that may have scarred you for life: Lauren Oliver - Requiem. What a horrible book.


Tarantallegra
makes you dance uncontrollably
A series finale that made you feel giddy: (in a positive way?): Carrie Ryan – The dark and hallow places. Such a dark, twisted world. Very intense and it gave me many heart-pounding moments. A great conclusion!


Bombarda Maxima
causes an explosion that breaks through obstacles
A book that made you explode with the feels: Sarah J. Maas – Crown of midnight. EPIC PEOPLE, EPIC!


Finite Incantatem
nullifies other spells
A book you thought you’d dislike, but ended up loving: Laini Taylor – Daughter of smoke and bone. It sounded a bit cliché and I wasn’t a fan in the beginning, but when the story unraveled I was hooked!

Let me know what you would pick?

Mel.

  1. I'm so curious about Poison! Who is this adorable pig people keep talking about anyway? ;) As for Mal, well...I liked him enough in the first book but I've always been The Darkling fan so I'm not sure how I'll feel toward him in the second book...I NEED SIege and Storm now :( Oh, and Cinder and Daughter of Smoke and Bone too! It seems like all my bloggy friends -- including you -- LOOOOVE them so much!

  3. I have several comments about this one! Seige and Storm actually made me hate Alina more because she got very power hungry and I don't know, she just irked me. I haven't read Crown of Midnight yet because I didn't love Throne of Glass and I'm worried about Chaol because I ship her with Dorian so (I am alone on this ship, I know). And completely agree with Cinder and the book boyfriends. I loved Cinder so much and HOW DO YOU CHOOSE ONE GUY? Anyway, I definitely need to read a lot of these ahh. Thanks for sharing, it was very entertaining :D

    1. Ohhh, I loved that about Alina. It's her flaw :D I think you'll really like CoM. A lot of people who weren't blown away by ToG loved it too. There is some Dorian time ;)

  4. Oh no! Mal becomes a rubbish character? I've not read the second one yet but I loved him in the first one! :-(

  7. The first thing that came into my mind whilst reading your list : I NEED TO TWEET THIS! - So, I did :)

    I really love your list, Mel. I might do this, too. :)

  8. I've got too many book boyfriends too! Nothing wrong with that at all, right?! LOL. I've got to get to The Fault in Our Stars. Too many people I adore love this one.

  9. Yay, more fun! It's fun to read what books you picked out for each spell. And it also gives me an idea of what books I definitely read and what books I should stay away from!

  10. Love this post! I think one that made me completely speechless was TFiOS as well and The Book Thief.

    Thanks for sharing, Mel! <33

  11. This is such a brilliant idea for a post Mel! I loved reading your answers, there were quite a few books that you mentioned which I haven't read yet, but I'm certainly looking forward to now after some of the reactions they evoked from you! :)

  12. This is such a fun post, I love it! Completely agree on A Beautiful Dark and Crown of Midnight! CoM was so incredibly amazing and heartbreaking and WHOA. I don't think I've come across a person who DIDN'T like it and I feel it's a huge compliment to the book (which it deserves!). Thank you for the fun post, it was exactly what I needed after a really tiring day!

  14. YAY for Cinder turning you on to sci-fi and Daughter of Smoke & Bone for winning you over :D hehe I compltely agree with you for Deathly Hallows, Poison AND Crown of Midnight (♥!) Oh and I still need to read Girl of Fire & Throne and Leigh Bardugo's Grisha series but they're both on the top of my wishlist/TBR! Love these posts Mel, very fun!

  15. I have far too many book boyfriends.. Duvall, Sturmhond, Thorne, I don’t know where to start! -- WHO SAYS YOU NEED TO START AND CAN'T HAVE THEM ALL??

    I confess - I feel like I was too harsh on Girl of Fire and Thorns and wonder whether I ought to reread it and try to feel less strongly about the Elisa self-image and religious bits. Is the first book your favorite of the trilogy?

    Leigh Bardugo – Siege and storm. I first liked Mal, but now.. not so much.
    -- Too true. I thought it was a realistic transformation, but I admit that he also lost some of his appeal. Plus, when next to Sturmhound, how can he compare? ;)

    Jocely Davies – A beautiful dark. The only thing I remember is: it was bad.. -- YIKES. I remember that was one of the first books I could've read via Netgalley but it expired before I did, and I remember the love triangle bit. But now you've made me glad that I didn't read it before it expired.

    A book that convinced you to reconsider a certain genre: Marissa Meyer – Cinder. I never liked Sci-Fi books until I read this one. Now I’m hooked. -- It's interesting that you're hooked on sci-fi after Lunar Chronicles because I honestly don't even feel like it's sci-fi so much as futuristic, and somehow futuristic stuff ends up getting labeled sci-fi.

    A book that made you laugh: Rachel Hawkins – Hex Hall. Sophie is hilarious! -- She IS. I love the humor in Hawkins's stories and that's what makes them so different and lovable and Sophie especially so.

    A book that may have scarred you for life: Lauren Oliver - Requiem. What a horrible book. --- Yikes! Hey, maybe that's why it won the Book Shimmy Award for most scarring dystopia or something like that?? Lol.

    A series finale that made you feel giddy: (in a positive way?): Carrie Ryan – The dark and hallow places. Such a dark, twisted world. Very intense and it gave me many heart-pounding moments. A great conclusion! --- can I ask you something? How do the books relate to each other? I tried reading the first novel but got so bored about halfway through that I never got around to reading it again, though I still own the sequel... and now I'm wondering what it'd be like to read the sequel? Is it a sequel or is it a companion novel?

    A book you thought you’d dislike, but ended up loving: Laini Taylor – Daughter of smoke and bone. It sounded a bit cliché and I wasn’t a fan in the beginning, but when the story unraveled I was hooked! -- Interesting that you thought it sounded cliche! Do you mean because it's like angels v. demons take? or? I'm curious because I thought the synopsis did a good job of making it sound not cliche though the story itself is one that's everywhere. Also am curious when you started to like the book :D. Have you read the novella? SO ADORABLE. Read it if you haven't!!

    1. -Haha, true. I'm gonna catch them all!
      -We could re-read together? I need to read the last book, but I'd love to refresh my memory.
      -True, true, Sturmhond or Mal.. That's not a question.
      -BE HAPPY. Horrible book.
      -Argggh, that's why genres are so difficult and Goodreads always messes with my mind. They put it under Sci-Fi..
      -I still can't understand how that book won a price. It's awful.
      -The books relate as in: same world-building and the characters are family members. But I do think they could be read as stand-alones if you want to. I suggest skipping the 2nd book, because I didn't like that one so much.
      -Yes, the angel vs. demon take and how it started made it feel a bit cliched.
