BEDM: Pottermore Sorting

Chat Header

I know Sarah recently did a Pottermore re-sorting and I wanted to join the trend! My friend Charlotte over at Wonderfully Bookish also did a similar post and I loved her post format so I’m slightly stealing it! I love Pottermore mainly because of the beautiful illustrations and the extra info, like what the Hufflepuff common room looks like or individual pages for each character. It’s basically an encyclopaedia now, which I adore.  Continue reading “BEDM: Pottermore Sorting”

Adaptation Header

The time has come when i feel like everyone who wants to has read or seen Fantastic Beasts by J.K. Rowling. It has easily been one of the biggest movies of the year as we were thrust back in to the Wizarding World, something we have all be hoping for, for a long time. I managed to see the movie during the first weekend of its release, and i’ve recently just finished the screenplay. Here are my thoughts on both of them, what i liked and didn’t and what my hopes are for this world! (Contains spoilers).

Well it’s had a revamp and you can now find out your own personal Patronus! Here at The Little Contemporary Corner, we’re all massive Harry Potter fans, so when it was announced that there were new features added to Pottermore, i resigned myself up (yes) and took the test to find out what animal would be my Patronus. I also retook my House Sorting test, my Ilvermorny House test and found out my Wand!

Film Tie-In Books

The new Ghostbusters film was released on DVD and Blu-ray today (I got my pretty steelbook delivered, I’m very happy) so I think it is a good time to talk about film tie-in books. I’m using the term pretty loosely as I want to talk about a whole variety of them not just one type. I wanted to also talk about books like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and the novelisation of the latest Star Wars film which are brilliant in their own way.

These posts aren’t always going to be protagonists or main characters, but any characters we feel we have learnt things from. Continue reading “Lessons We Could Learn From Hermione Granger”
