Hey guys, it’s Lois! Happy 20th Birthday to a book series that has quite simply change my life. I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter series and thought what better way to celebrate its birthday than by doing the Ultimate Harry Potter Tag. This tag was created by Isabeau’s Literary Musing. Thank you to Ally @ Allywritesthings for bringing this tag t0 my attention.
Let’s get on with it!
1. Favourite Book?
For some reason my favourite book has always been Chamber of Secrets.
2. Least Favourite Book?
I don’t know why but I am not the biggest fan of Half-blood Prince. I can’t explain why.
3. Favourite Movie?
Chamber of Secrets. I have a reason for this one! I watched this film over and over when I was younger so this is the one I have grown up with the most.
4. Least Favourite Movie?
The Goblet of Fire. Again for some reason I just wasn’t all that much of a fan of this movie but I loved the book.

“You’re just as sane as I am” – Luna Lovegood

Molly Weasley, she is the best book mum in the world!

Voldemort, I know that is a weird answer but I have always thought he is a really good villain.

Remus Lupin. I love when his character was introduced!
10. Favourite Professor?
Professor McGonagall, she is so sarcastic and just brilliant.
