Cast A Harry Potter Spell! (BEST. TAG. EVER.)

Anyways, even if you haven't read Harry Potter, do read this post.

I found out about this marvelous tag from Feed Me Books Now one of my favorite blogs. Do check it out! Anyways...

Fixes damaged objects
A book that needs some serious fixing: The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens. It is true, that this book needs serious fixing. Why, you may ask. IT IS UNFINISHED!!!!!! So yeah, i need an ending...

Creates a narrow beam of light
A book that deserves more attention: Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card. This novel was pure brilliance... and then I discovered that no one else had even heard of it -_-

Counters the effects of Lumos
An overhyped book: Um... I don't know... Ah ha! Eragon by Christopher Paolini. Don't get me long, I really liked the book, and definitely think the sequels deserve the hype... but everyone made this seem like a phenomenal mind-blowing book... and it really wasn't...

Summons an object from a significant distance
A book you’re anticipating: Visitors by Orson Scott Card. OH MY GREAT GATSBY, I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the third book in The Pathfinder Series and... I am so excited, I WILL PRE-ORDER THIS BOOK. And I never pre-order.

Opens unlocked doors, unless bewitched
A book you want to be more open about: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. This looks like  brain-hurting kind of book, and looks like it would be dreadfully dull, but it is a classic...

Expecto Patronum
Conjures an incarnation of positive feelings
A book that made you cry, or at least want to: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. Bloglings, I am getting teary eyed thinking about this book... It is so emotional and amazing and THE BEST BOOK EVER *cough* Yeah...

Conjures the Dark Mark
A book you wish to mark as one of your favorites: *cough* TFIOS *cough*
Um, I'd say Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. Because it is genius and heart-breaking and well-written and did I say genius. And the author excepted my friend request on Goodreads! *claps hands*

Petrificus Totalus
Petrifies victim
A book you wish to keep forever: *cough* TFIOS *cough*
Erm... The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Beautiful writing, brilliant story, and ultimately unforgettable.

Used against a boggart
A book with a deceiving synopsis: The Neverending Story  by Michael Ende. The synopsis makes it sound enchanting and surprising... it wasn't -_-

Lacarnum Inflamarae
Shoots fireballs
A book you wish to burn out of your mind completely: The Golden Acorn by Catherine Cooper. Ew. Ew. Ew. The one book which I have never finished, this was horribly written, filled with cliches, et cetera, et cetera,

Wingardium Leviosa
Levitates objects
A book you wish to reread: Again... The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. This book is Just. So. Amazing. Please. Please. Read. It.

Avada Kedavra
Causes instant death
Worst book EVER: So, um, I'm going to toss out a book out I haven't read so it's kinda mean for me to say this but... Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Um, yeah... explanation not necessary.

Puts victim in unconscious state
A book with a chapter you couldn’t seem to get over: *cough* TFIOS *cough*  No, but really,...
Allegiant by Veronica Roth. *shudders* *sobs* it hurt...

Causes befuddlement or forgetfulness
A book that generally confused you: Ruins by Orson Scott Card. In a good way, though! Everything was just so complex.

Inflicts unbearable pain
A book that was a pain to read: Modern Times by Paul Johnson. Oh yes, let's change this cursed thing to is a pain to read.
Heals relatively minor injuries
A feel good book that you enjoyed: Um, I don't read feel-good books... unless Harry Potter counts... because HARRY POTTER IS THE BEST!!!!

Impedes target’s progress
A book that kept you up all night reading: The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne... it also kept me up crying.

Immediate silencing
A book that left you speechless after you read it: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. Other than me softly crying, I was speechless at the awesomeness of this book.

Allows you to delve into someone’s mind
A book with well-developed characters: *hush, I have only copied 2 books from your answers so far* The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. It was so good, and so, so sad :( Manchee *sniff*

A spell that turns you upside down
A book that changed your mind about a character from its prequel: Harry Potter 2 because, I went from disliking Vernon Dursley to despising Vernon Dursley.

Used to hide memories
A book with a story you can’t remember: The Princess and the Goblin by George Macdonald... something about goblins, an old lady and a dove and Curdie... um yeah, re-read...

Peskipiksi Pesternomi
Useless spell
A boring book that had absolutely no effect on you: The Land of Little Rain by Mary Austin. Boring. And boring. And boring. That's about what I got from the book.

Breaks through solid objects
A book that convinced you to reconsider a certain genre: Cinder  by Marissa Meyer. I now love fairy tale retellings!

Tickling spell
A book that made you laugh: Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I am currently reading this one, and I thought it was plain hilarious... I don't really know why.

Offensive spell that violently wounds the target
A book that may have scarred you for life: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. EMOTIONALLY TRAUMATIZED.

Makes you dance uncontrollably
A series finale that made you feel giddy: Harry Potter 7.  I don't even need an explanation here.

Bombarda Maxima
Causes an explosion that breaks through obstacles
A book that made you explode with the feels: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I'm crying again.

Finite Incantatem
Nullifies other spells
A book you thought you’d dislike, but ended up loving: Kon Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl. I don't really like non-fiction but this was one was super interesting :)
