Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Characters that I would give Halloween a chance for

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Halloween themed freebie — your choice (ie. 10 best ghost stories, 10 things that scare you in books, 10 literary Halloween costumes, 10 vampire novels, 10 books that WILL scare you, 10 non-scary books for Halloween, 10 scariest covers, etc.)

I don’t do Halloween, like, at all. I don’t read scary books, I don’t watch scary movies, I don’t dress up or go out partying. I don’t do any of those things. So this week I decided to name 10 characters that I would totally do the Halloween thing for, or, people who are so cool that I would totally like to dress up as them.


1. Cath (Fangirl)

True, it wouldn’t be exactly hard to dress up as Cath, but it would be a blast. Cath is so relatable, that if I raid my closet I would probably have everything I needed to “be” her. (source)

2. Tessa Gray (The Infernal Devices)

Dressing up as any Shadowhunter would be great, but I have a soft spot for Tessa Gray’s clothes 😉 . (source)

3. Aelin Ashryver Galathynius (Throne of Glass Series)

Celaena’s clothes are all amazing, but I love her tunics and pants, and that dress from Queen of Shadows? With the Dragon? WOW!!! (source)

4. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter series)

Dressing up as a student from Hogwarts would already be pretty great, but Luna is just special. (source)

5. Feyre (A Court of Thorns and Roses)

Feyre is a bit kickass, I mean, she gets to wear some gorgeous clothes – though not dresses at first – and she has a bow and arrows, so she has a Katniss vibe going on as well… (source)

6. Dahlia Moss (The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss)

I read this book recently (and loved it) and Dahlia just wears the most ridiculous things sometimes… I mean, a jigglypuff hat?!

7. Shahrzad (The Wrath and the Dawn)

Shazi just has the most amazing set of clothes (and husband), so I would totally dress like her for one day… though I suspect that I would be thoroughly embarrassed by the amount of skin showing…

8. Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)

Does this need an explanation? (source)

9. Eleanor (Eleanor & Park)

I love Eleanor’s style, she’s so unique, and I love her so much, that I would totally be her for one day (if her family didn’t come attached). (source)

10. Professor McGonagall (Harry Potter series)

I’ve mentioned before that I think McGonagall rocks, and I would totally dress up as her for Halloween 😀 .

– Day 15: Pick three characters to be your best friends at Hogwarts? –

Wow, just 3?! Ok, I can do this! I think I would go for the girls, mostly because I love how their friendship is written in the books, Ginny at the center of it.

First, Luna Lovegood. Luna is so fun and quirky, but she’s always honest and will always have your back. Besides, she has wisdom beyond her years and she loves unconditionally.

Then I would pick Ginny Weasley. She’s super protective of all her friends and has a kind of no-nonsense attitude that I’m quite fond of.

And finally Hermione Granger. I mean, someone has to rally the troops, and even though I think we would but heads a lot, she’s a great friend. And she’s determined and helps everyone with their homework, even when she says she won’t.

The Harry Potter 30 Days Challenge #7

– Day 7: Who’s your favourite female character and why? – 

I’m going to cheat… again! Sorry people, but choosing one is not an option here.

Hermione:

Hermione is obviously one of my favorite female characters on Harry Potter. I say obviously because she’s smart, she kicks-ass and she also has more “screen-time” than any other female on this book, so it’s pretty easy to love her, even if she’s an “insufferable know-it-all” (don’t worry honey, I am too at times).

Tonks:

I feel in love with Tonks as soon as she made her first appearance on Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix. She’s just so cool, and if you thought she looked cool in the movies, it has nothing on her coolness on the books. First off, she’s super young, and she’s already an Auror. She changes her hair colour very often, she gives advice to the girls and becomes more than a friend, she has horrible relatives, but she’s still so awesome. And she falls in love with Lupin and doesn’t care if he’s older, poor or a werewolf!

Luna:

I don’t think is possible not to absolutely love Luna Lovegood. She sees the world much more clearly than any other person, she doesn’t care what people say about her, she’s always herself! Enough said, Luna rocks!

Minerva McGonagall:

Full disclosure, I already loved McGonagall before reading the books, it might have something to do with the Amazing Dame Maggie Smith portraying her on screen! With that said, McGonagall is OUT OF THIS WORLD! She is always funny and respect worthy, but her confrontations with Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix will forever be within my favorite bits of these books. And her sass… 😀

Molly Weasley:

I talked about the Weasley men the other day, but in truth that family wouldn’t be who they are if they weren’t led by the amazing Molly Weasley. She’s a fierce mother and a force of nature. Her worst nightmare was loosing all her family, including Harry… and she killed Bellatrix!!! Points for Mrs Weasley!

The 2014 Quidditch World Cup Final (and what we learned from it)

Yesterday, the Quidditch World Cup Final was finally upon us, and with it, a long promised update with full coverage of the event by no others than Rita Skeeter and Ginny Potter!!! J.K. Rowling published the whole coverage of the match on Pottermore.

Amazingly, the coverage from Rita’s part focused entirely on the VIP box, and we learned so much about our favorite wizards and witches! Albus Potter doesn’t mind supporting a different team than his family; Rose has Ron’s hair, but Hugo took after Hermione; Luna married in “rainbows, spangles and a tiara made of silver unicorn horn.”; Neville is Albus godfather (I cried on this one…); Ron and Hermione show some PDA; Ron roots for Brazil – he doesn’t want Krum to win, given that he dated Hermione and all…; Rolf Scamander and Charlie Weasley are totally bros, also, Charlie never married; Teddy Lupin and Victoire can’t take their hands off each other… Billy had to intervene; Albus almost falls off the booth and Ron catches him, while Harry just gives him the sweets that Luna baked; Harry and Neville are close; Hermione kept her maiden name; George is wealthy; Harry who?! Ginny is my new hero… maybe because she just jinxed Rita Skeeter…
