The New Year

Happy holidays everyone! Hope you guys all had a great Christmas. Or had a great [insert the holiday you celebrate here]. So it's New Years Resolution time! My New Years Resolutions are:
  1. Be more Eco-friendly: I really want to try and compost, and walk more.
  2.  Be healthy: I don't want to lose weight or anything. Just, you know, eat more vegetables, and drink more then 1 glass of water a day.
  3. Blog more: Yeah, I'm pretty bad at blogging regularly.
  4. Write down every book I read this year.
What are YOUR New Years Resolutions?

What is your favourite holiday song? Mine would probably be "Christmas Lights" by Coldplay. But it's not really a happy song.

So Happy Holidays everyone!

I'm in Pottermore

Hey guy! So yesterday, I got my Pottermore email!! I'm going to keep this blog spoiler free so don't worry.
Pottermore is awesome. The graphics and the artwork are really beautiful. And the new content is amazing. So my wand is vine with phoenix feather core and its 14 1/2 inches, slightly yielding. Jo put so much effort into all the info about the wands. My wand describes me perfectly, so I'm happy about that!
 I got sorted into Ravenclaw!! I'm not surprised. I thought either Ravenclaw or Gryffindor.
 I'm only on chapter 9 of Pottermore, so I'm not done yet. I personally hope that Pottermore lets more people in, because at this rate they might not get everyone in by October.

 So Twitch ( from Twitchverse) awarded me the " I Dig you Blog" award.
Thank the person who gave you this award:
Thank-you so much Twitch!!!
Reveal 3 random facts about yourself:
1. I love MuggleCast and Mugglenet
2. I'd rather watch videos on Youtube instead of watching the T.V.
3. I'm a huge bookworm

Pass the award on:

 Five - least favourite male character? Voldy

Twelve - favourite pairing?  Ron/Hermione
Thirteen - least favourite movie? Order of the Phoenix
Fourteen - Voldemort or Harry? Harry Potter,duh

Twenty-nine - what you like as a job after Hogwarts? Auror, or professional Quidditch player. I'd be a Chaser.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 - Review

  When I saw the movie the atmosphere in the theatre was just so exciting. You would see Hogwarts students, Death Eaters, Harrys,Rons,Hermiones, and I saw a Hagrid also. Everyone was excited and nervous and scared and exhilarated. It was amazing.

 I am going to list what I liked :
  • The opening scene with Snape and Hogwarts was very powerful. It was a very sad feeling to see Hogwarts-the place we all adore- to be in such a terrible state
  • The Gringotts scene was very interesting for me 
  • After the Gringotts scene everything was focused towards the final battle
  • I found Aberforth very similar looking to Dumbledore, so I think they did a good casting decision
  • I liked the part where Harry jumps out at Snape and the McGonagall vs Snape was very good. Even though I liked this scene very much, I still loved how it was in the book, in the Ravenclaw common room.
  • The battle. Soo good. It really kept everyone in the theatre on the edge of their seats.
  • I loved Neville in the movie. I'm glad he got his moments.
  • Snapes death was just sooo amazing. Alan Rickman is amazing.
  • The Prince's Tale was so well done. The part that got to me most was when Snape was sobbing, rocking Lily back and forth...:'(
  • The forest scene...I loved it.
  • The King's Cross was good, should have been longer, ad I'm upset they left out Dumbledore's past, but I loved that they kept all the lines
  • The flaw in the plan was very good( except for the part when Harry jumps of the cliff with Voldy...I just thought that if Harry and Voldy were so close, one of them would have killed the other!) But I'm glad Harry addressed Voldy as "Tom")
  • I'm sort of upset that when Voldemort died he sort of burst into little pieces. I wanted it to be in the book, him being dead on the ground. I thought that showed how mortal Voldy was when Harry killed him
  • The Epilogue was so sweet. The trio looked weird...but it was to be expected? I hated how Harry's scar was gone. I thought it was a reminder of all the horrors in Harry's past.
I loved movie 8. What a phenomenal way to end the series.
