The Harry Potter Book Tag!! ft. I adopted three fluffy kittens this is not a drill

I think the most important thing about this post is my //////kitten announcement//////

I’m scared I’m going to overwhelm you with their cuteness. Before reading further, ensure you are sitting down. 😉

The Origin Story: THIS PAST WEEKEND WAS A VOYAGE. This is one of those stories I’m going to tell when I’m extremely old. “Why, back in my dayyyyyyyy we randomly adopted kittens. Now you kids have flying cars and sh*t and you can’t spot kittens on the ground while you’re in flight.”

From left to right: being adorable, reluctant playtime, sleeping in baskets

We were driving home and there was this woman holding a kitten outside of  her house. So we obviously stopped to see them. Pro Tip: If someone wanted to kidnap me all they would have to do is hold a kitten and just stand there.

And the old woman had not only 1 kitten, BUT THREE. She was planning to take them to the animal shelter. But instead {she gave them to ya girl}

They were just so cute???? Like, stop the damn car cute. Can you imagine them in a shelter, cold and alone and not being kissed????? NOT ON MY WATCH.

From  left to right: Salem (from Netflix Sabrina, it’s kismet), Gizmo (he looks like a Gremlin you know it’s true), Dorothy (my favorite Golden Girl of courseeeee)

Now they are happily living with me. I have two other cats named Thomas and Hazel, and they are both older and they…tolerate? the children. There are some jealousy issues but I like to think that they’re handling it maturely.

But even though I’m a really great cat lady at this point (five cats, friends. I’ve ascended), I’m a really bad Harry Potter fan????? I’ve only read up to Goblet of Fire. I need to finish this series, GoF was back in January!!?? I’ve committed book treason.

Also, even though I love the series, and I’m enjoying it, and I respect the hell out of it, I don’t think,,,,,,,(*is afraid*),,,,,,I don’t this it’s the best series in the world. 

The world is so amazing and iconic I love being sorted in my house (Hufflepuff bb)

But I don’t feel the need to consume the series into my soul. PLEASE CONTINUE TO LIKE ME. I WON’T EVEN CARE IF YOU TRASH TALK NEIL JOSTEN.

just kidding if u trash talk that beaming angel our friendship is over

So, um. *presents post* c”””:

Harry Potter Tag

I was tagged by Beth @ Reading Every Night!!! She is one of my absolute favorites in this world and I love her, her posts are so beautiful + well-written + interesting. *points* Go to her straight away

The Harry Potter Book Tag was created by Trang and Lashaan at Bookidote, and all graphics belong to them.


A book you found the theme interesting, but you’d like to rewrite it.

//✨What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

It’s gay, it’s New York, it’s Hamilton References. It’s also boring and I feel a desperate need to rewrite half of the plot. I wish Becky wrote this alone sldkfjsjd



The first book in a series that got you hooked.

//✨The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

This series is so close to me emotionally. I think about the characters every single day of my life + I can’t listen to Spotify without applying songs to them.

It’s my favorite in this WORRRRLLLDDDDDD.

Wait just one darn minute is there a Foxhole Court tag??? OH DEAR GOD. If there isn’t I need to make one 2018.

A book you wish you could have right now.

//✨The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

Such an amazing book, it’s now one of my new favoritesSadly I just had to return it to the library, and you know that moment when you’re handing over the books??

And it’s so monumental because how are you finding the strength to f’ing do this?????

This happened to me recently and I painfully miss my precious Stella (Autism rep!) and my precious Michael (Southeast Asian rep!)



A killer book. Both senses. Take it as you like.

//✨Vengeful by VE Schwab

So many people die in this series!!???? I think the death count is more than any other book I’ve ever read. The premise is, in order to become ExtraOrdinary, you have to pretty much die, only to be brought back.

Also, the MCs are extremely morally gray and don’t really value human life? but ya know, what can ya do 🙂

Victor and Eli are ridiculous and great. I just wish they were more loyal to one another. I love me some loyalty.


A book that you found really confusing.

//✨Summer of Salt by Katrina Leno

This was one of my first books I read and considered hardcore magical realism, in which magic plays a serious role.

There were definitely moments when I questioned “what is actually happening” but overall I loved it v much. So Sapphic and the story is gentle??

Your spirit animal book.

//✨The Wicker King by K Ancrum

I worship this book, I need the ‘August + Jack 4Ever’  merch, K Ancrum is my writing lord. I will promote this book forever. I feel like a good word to use here is “grand.”

Two best friends going through some crazy happenings and staying true to one another. It’s my cup of tea.

A dark twisted book.

//✨Black Wings Beating by Alex London

This book really isn’t that dark and twisted.

Even the vicious falcons are smol and pure. But the sibling relationship felt VERY dark and twisted, her brother is so horrible to her?? She deserves 100000x better.

I went into this craving a strong sibling relationship, and was disappointed on that note, but at least I got falcons 🙂



A book that surprised you in a great way, reveals more than it is.

//✨The Shape of My Heart by Ann Aguirre

I was so surprised by this book, because it’s the third in a trilogy!!????

When I found out I went back and read the first two books, which both sucked, so it’s a good thing I started with the last one. If I started with book one I would’ve DNF everything.

But this story includes a protagonist I identify with at a soul-deep level, she’s bisexual rep + she’s not considered mainstream pretty, which was so refreshinggggg.

    CONGRATS ON REACHING CAT LADY STATUS. Five cats is #goals, my friend. PLUS THOSE KITTENS SLAY. ME. Like, I can see why you stopped the car. Kittens are everybody’s kryptonite. It’s sad though – I’m majorly allergic. Like, I’m sitting here thinking of cats and I’m already starting to sneeze. Hahahahahsobs. All I want from life is a cute kitten BY WHY U NO LET ME, BODY?? Anyways, this post was great and made me laugh so hard. Thanks for the wonderful update 🙂

    Awww! I would’ve taken those kittens too, you rescued a trio of cuties 😀 You can’t make me choose a favourite!
    I’m Ravenclaw most days, although I identify with Slytherin because of Draco, and the Harry Potter books would’ve been better if they focused more on him, at least in my opinion 😛

      thank youuuuu Louise, omg every time my cat lady status gets overwhelming I kiss their smol noses and am once again a melted Malanie c: c: c:
      OH GOSH, DRACO IS SO PRECIOUS. I love him and unpopular opinion (i wish he were the MC of the series)
      (also i wish the story were gay)
      (+++++i’m very low-key a Slytherin, even if the hat won’t sort me there sdfjs)

        I need a kitten, so badly 😀
        Draco would’ve been an awesome MC, he’s so precious and so much more complicated than Harry! I ship so many ships that never sailed in HP, (and everything else, lol) SiriusxRemus & HarryxDraco are my favs, much better than HarryxGinny and RonxHermoine! Heck I would’ve taken a Draco redemption arc, although in the Cursed Child play we kinda get a little bit of that where Harry and Draco’s kids go on adventures together 😀 (A lot of people say Cursed Child is trash, but I loved it!)

    I’m a Hufflepuff too Malanie, which in my opinion is the best house because we have Newt Scamander as well! 😀
    Great answers for this tag, and your new kittens are adorable (I love that one of them is named after Salem, that would be the kind of thing I’d do if I owned a black cat too). The Foxhole Court was a book that hooked me on the series as well, honestly I don’t think I’ve binge read a series quite like I binge read the All for the Game trilogy since I started The Heroes of Olympus books last year! Also when it comes to ‘killer’ books Vengeful definitely applies in all senses of the word (but yeah I would have liked to see more from Eli and Victor in the same scene too, more of their relationship before and after they found themselves on different sides).
    Great post, and again great picks for this tag. 🙂 ❤

      omg we do have Newt!!!!!!! HE IS OUR PRECIOUS GEM. also Cedric, I adore him so muchhh, he was so fair and kind???
      +ahhh Salem is the cuddliest out of of everyone, the other like exploring but she likes to be hugged XD
      ++I’m so happy you agree abt Eli and Victor, I think the books would be so greatly improved if we actually got more dialogue/interaction while they’re enemies! so much time is spent plotting against one another, but then the confrontation lasts liek 3 seconds lskdj
      ++it brings me unparalleled joy that you loved All for the Game, so few of my friends end up enjoying the series?? but Neil & Andrew can have my heart and soul

        Yep, Hufflepuff have all the best characters, so obviously we’re the best house! 😀 💛
        Hugs with pets are the best hugs.
        Exactly, and we got almost interactions, seeing Eli in prison and seeing their past in the first book, but I would have loved to see them more in the present you know?
        It seems like a really popular series so that kind of surprises me, but yes I love all the characters so much but especially Neil and Andrew (they’re a new OTP of mine for sure!) 😀

    omg those kittens are adorable!! so fuzzy! so blue-eyed! I’m impressed that you have five cats. I wish I had room in my small apartment for five cats.

    Also yes yes summer of salt ❤ I was unsure if I liked this one at first but in retrospect I think I actually really enjoyed it because of the bisexuality and the warm and fuzzy bird people and the weird magical realism. All around a quality book, imo. Glad you liked it 🙂

    Your kittens are ALL so cute, but I think Dorothy is the cutest (and she reminds me of my own cat 🙂 )

    Also, have you watched the HP movies? Because if you don’t already know what happens next in the series, I have a feeling Order of the Phoenix will reel you back into the series. 🙂
