Exploring My Bookshelves: It’s Hogwarts again

“Exploring My Bookshelves” is a weekly meme created by Victoria at Addlepates and Book Nerds. Since Victoria was on summer vacation, Shannon at For the Love of Words created her own topics, which I followed along with. Now they will both host the meme in alternating months. Visit either blog for the list of topics.

This week’s topic:

A school you want to got to (since Hogwarts has started back)

Of all the books I’ve ever read, I can’t think of another school I’d like to attend other than Hogwarts. No other has appealed to me like Hogwarts has. Why?

  1. It’s a magical castle. I like magic and I like castles so I’m sold.
  2. You can get away with almost anything if Snape’s not around.
  3. Something crazy will always happen to disrupt your class. Never a dull moment.
  4. You’ll have some odd teachers: a ghost, a werewolf, who knows if the series kept going and Dumbledore was still alive maybe there’d even be a vampire.
  5. Quidditch. I’m not a sports fan but I’d totally be into quidditch.

And for those reasons and more it’s got to be Hogwarts. I’d be a Ravenclaw, though I could also be a Hufflepuff as well. When I read the topic for this week, Tar Valon from Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series immediately popped into my head but I would never want to go there. I think the Aes Sedai are unnecessarily abusive. Instead of bonding together as sisters, they push each other apart.

How this meme works:
  1. Take a “shelfie” (a picture of your bookshelf). Preferably literal, but e-shelves work too.
  2. Write something on the day’s prompt.
  3. Give the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it).
  4. Link back to Victoria’s post.

  1. I’m in love with your bookshelf, I wish I had one that big! It’s rare to find a Hufflepuff/ Ravenclaw person. I think I’d be Hufflepuff 😋 loved the post. I kinda want to see an alternate universe Hogwarts now, where Dumbledore lives and continuously brings dangerous monsters in to teach!
