Unpopular Opinions Tag

Hey beautiful book lovers!

Today I am going to be doing the Unpopular Opinions Tag, I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do this I just really wanted to do it myself. I suck at doing tags when I’m actually tagged in them but I am going to try to be better and actually do them.
I really like this one because it’s interesting to see what things other people don’t like or views they have that aren’t considered popular.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does or does not say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Review

This book has to be the best book I have read this year. Angie Thomas is a phenomenal woman for writing this story that is so relevant for what has been happening in America.

5 majorly under-rated Harry Potter characters #harrypotter20

Hey Guys!

Welcome back to my Harry Potter Week to celebrate Monday’s anniversary of 20 years of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. I still can’t believe it will have been 20 years?! I’m currently reading Prisoner of Azkaban again and loving reliving the first journeys of Harry and the gang. Today’s post is my Top 5 Under-rated Harry Potter characters.

We all know Movies can’t last forever, they must have a running time that isn’t too long or too short so sadly not everything in a book can be added.
I mean I would definitely watch a 6 hour Harry Potter movie, no problem…
If you have only seen the Potter Movies and not read the books then I must suggest you really try to read the books because there is so much detail and adventure you are missing out on. The books could truly change your thoughts about some of the characters!

Without further ado here are my picks for under-rated characters;

Ginny Weasley

ginny

I feel like Ginny Weasley is the ultimate under-rated character of all time. She still doesn’t have a Funko Pop for her and we even have Dementors?! I need that in my life. 
Book Ginny and Movie Ginny for me were rather different, the movies played her role down in parts and sometimes made her seem weak. For example in Chamber of Secrets, I wish the movie would have showcased more of Ginny’s journey and how strong she is. In the book you really get to hear about her struggle with reading Tom Riddle’s Diary and the journey she went on herself throughout that year.

Of course she is also goes on tons of other adventures being part of Dumbledore’s Army and fighting in the Battle of Hogwarts.

Cedric Diggory

cedric

I can’t believe that if I hadn’t have read the Potter books I never would of found out that Cedric features in Prisoner of Azkaban! I wish they had included those moments in the movie, especially Hufflepuff vs Gryffindor’s Quidditch game. The demise of Cedric breaks my heart everytime but if we were able to see him in the movies outside of Goblet of Fire too I think it would of hit even harder.

Luna Lovegood

luna

Until reading the Potter books I really questioned how Luna could be people’s favourite character. Whilst I loved her in the movies I never really felt like we knew too much about Luna but in the books we really get to see more about her character and she is so much more present in the stories.

I love her little quips and I find her so inspiring now, she never let things get her down. When people called her ‘looney luna’ or hid all her belongings she didn’t get angry and she didn’t let them get to her. She carried on being who she was.

Tonks and Lupin

lupin and tonks

My heart. These two.

The movies miss out so much between Lupin and Tonks. Their is so much backstory behind these two and the fact it isn’t shown too much in the film, I think alot of people under-rate them. Lupin and Tonks are the cutest and their relationship wasn’t easy.
The fact they stay in the Battle of Hogwarts rather than hiding with their baby really shows their nature and I will always cry for these two.

Cho Chang

cho chang

It’s been a while since I’ve watched the movies but I don’t remember ever seeing how Cho Chang was the Ravenclaw Seeker?! I may be wrong and my memory might be failing me right now but Cho Chang is so under-rated. She is an amazing Seeker, Smart and she plays a slightly bigger role in the books than the movies.

And one for good luck…

Dean Thomas

dean thomas

Ginny Weasley’s ex-boyfriend… Dean himself has such a good backstory which isn’t really extensively showcased in the movies. In the books Dean himself goes on the run because he is unable to prove his own Wizarding line. He defends Lupin to Umbridge, becomes a member of Dumbledore’s Army and fights in the Battle of Hogwarts. I personally love Dean throughout the books, I love how he’s known to support West Ham (football team) and how Ron pokes at his posters because the pictures don’t move.

Dean is definitely an under-rated character!

So there we have my list of Under-rated characters. I’m sure there are more I could have added but these always stick with me. I with they were showcased and loved more because they deserve it. 


Let me know if you think any other characters are majorly under-rated! I would love to discuss this in the comments!

Wizarding Wares and Places I wish were real!

Hey Guys!

Today’s post is Wizarding Wares and Places I wish were real. Harry Potter is full of things I wish were real, I mean I wish the whole world was and Hogwarts was a school I went too. But because these sorts of posts are particularly popular I decided to make this a little smaller and only include things that weren’t too obvious so you won’t see wands, brooms and invisibility cloaks on this list.
