I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

"He called me a Mudblood.”

I love Hagrid. And HP did a good job of using the Half-Blood, Pure Blood, Muggle Born thing as a commentary on race in the real world.

Reasons why Hermione clearly goes back and, after using memories to prove Hagrid’s innocence, teaches him magic (not my idea, stealing it from fanfiction, but it’s a good one).

As promised, here is my feels-themed giveaway! The books/series above all have one thing in common - they made me feel something. That doesn’t necessarily mean I cried but they definitely inspired some kind of emotional response in my robot-like self. They’re also some of my favourite books. Hopefully there’s a decent enough selection for you to choose from.

5 people will be sent a book of their choice from the selection above if they’re randomly selected as winners.

Please read the following:

  • To enter, like and/or reblog this post
  • You may reblog the post as many times as you like but don’t annoy your followers too much with it
  • I would prefer if you were following me, since this giveaway is a ‘thank you’ to my followers
  • This giveaway is international, as I am purchasing books via Book Depository and they have free delivery for the majority of the world. Double check that your country is included here
  • Your inbox MUST be open. I won’t be contacting anyone via fan mail
  • Winners may also choose a sequel to the books pictured above if it’s part of a series
  • Winners may choose which edition of the book they want, so long as it is paperback and under $15 (AU). The only exception is The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry, which is over $20 and hardback. I’ll only be buying this for one person (if they want it) so I have enough for the other books, sorry! I just love it so much and want to be able to share it with at least one person, even if it’s expensive
  • One of the books, Alexander Altmann A01567 is only available as a prize for Australians, as it is unavailable on Book Depository. If Aussies would like this book, I will order it for you from Bookworld
  • If you’re not sure which book you’d like, I’d be happy to tell you more about them and help you pick one that suits your tastes
  • No giveaway blogs
  • If you’re uncomfortable giving me your address, don’t be. I won’t be saving it or giving it out elsewhere or anything
  • The giveaway ends August 1st 12PM AEST
  • Winners will be selected using a random number generator and have 48 hours to get back to me. I’m quite lenient on that but I would prefer if people replied ASAP so I can be organised
  • If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me

Good luck and happy reading, word shakers!

THE MAGIC BEGINS ϟ Favourite Wizarding Family

ϟ Lovegood family

The Lovegoods lived near Ottery St. Catchpole in Devon, England, close to Weasley and Diggory families. They were regarded as unusual by other wizarding families. Xenophilius Lovegood was an editor of The Quibbler. It is unknown if they were pure-blood, Luna and possibly her father belonged to Ravenclaw. Mrs Lovegood died in an accident when she was experimenting with potions in 1990. Later on, Luna became a naturalist and married Rolf Scamander and had two children, Lorcan and Lysander.

“The gold ones are Galleons… Seventeen silver Sickles to a Galleon and twenty-nine Knuts to a Sickle, it’s easy enough.” (insp.)
