The Harry Potter Book Tag

The Harry Potter Book Tag!

I saw this on Jaed’s page over at Bibliophilewanderlust and loved the idea of it! She encouraged me to give it a go and I just couldn’t resist. So, here goes;

FLAGRATE – A book with an interesting premise/theme but you’d like to re-write

New Moon by Stephanie Meyer

Ok, ok, so I wouldn’t re-write it personally but I would like Stephanie Meyer to take another shot at it. For me, it was boring and too self-loathing. The other three books though? I loved them. (Guilty Pleasure).

ALOHAMORA – The first book in a series that got you hooked

Easy, easy, easy; The Way of Shadows (The Night Angel Trilogy #1) by Brent Weeks

This book is just brilliant and it really opened my eyes to fantasy. Weeks is one of my favourite authors, like, ever, and this is as good as it gets. The Night Angel Trilogy just got better and better.

ACCIO – A book you wish you could have right now

Oathbringer (The Stormlight Archive #3) By Brandon Sanderson

The first two books (The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance) in this series have, in my opinion, set the standard for epic fantasy. They have a mix of everything! Oathbringer is rumoured to be released this year (AAARGHHHHH) and I just wish I could fast forward and be at the front of the queue!

CONFUNDO – A book you found really confusing

Gardens of the Moon (Malazan Book of the Fallen #1) by Steven Erikson

I mean, eh?! Just…eh?! I didn’t get far with despite several attempts.

EXPECTO PATRONUM – Your spirit book

Legend (The Drenai Saga #1)

Haha slightly ambitious? Nah! I could would should(?) fight an army and prove ever loyal as well as being a down-to-earth bad-ass who wields a dual-headed axe named ‘Snaga’. I’m a dreamer and you can’t take that from me!

APARACIUM – A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals to be more than it is

Hope and Red (Empire of Storms Trilogy #1) by Jon Skovron

Hope and Red

Ok, so this book isn’t released until June 30th 2016 but I loved it! I was expecting a high-calibre fantasy but what I actually got was so much more! Piracy, biomancers, thieves and ‘lacies’, all taking place in a bright and vivid world built by the author. It left me exhausted but craving for more. I loved it.


I had so much fun doing this tag and it got me raking through my (seriously untidy) library! What did you think?

  1. I love the Malazan series but have to agree with you about Gardens of the Moon, you just get thrown in at the deep-end at the beginning and are left wondering what’s going on! 🙂

      1. I’ve already done the Harry Potter tag, it was the first tag I was tagged for a while ago now, if you want to check it out link here:

        As you say, it was fun to do, the game of Thrones tag that’s going around is also fun if you like the books/show.

      2. Ah I don’t know how I missed that one! I’ve just checked it out mate and there are some cracking choices in there, I really enjoyed it 😃

  2. So glad you did this tag. 😄 I love Brandon Sanderson’s books but I haven’t gotten into The Stromlight Archive yet. I’ve read the Mistborn trilogy and The Rithmatist by him and it was amazing 🙌. He takes fantasy to a whole new level.

    1. Haha so am I! I’m glad you encouraged me to do it! The Mistborn Trilogy was top notch but I promise you, the Stormlight Archive is a level above; it’s THAT good. Just make sure you have some time set aside lol if you buy each book ‘whole’ then they’re around 1000 pages! Let me know if you do 🙂


  3. Gardens of the Moon was confusing as hell, but it was one of the wildest rides I experienced in books since… well… always 🙂
    At some point you realize that you have to stop trying to figure it out and just enjoy the ride as an observer.

    1. Well you do have a great point there Nico! I think sometimes the confusion overwhelms me and it ruins the ride, only sometimes though 😊
