Day 30 – Many Questions, One Answer

30 Days’ Book Challenge –ย Day 30 – Many Questions, One Answer

I had saved the last post for a reason. I prepared this list of 30 Days’ Challenge from various prompts. Since you all know that I am a crazy Potterhead, it would be only obvious that for most of the prompts I came across, the only answer I had was Harry Potter.
So I had a tough time finding prompts that wouldn’t just give the same answer and kept this post for the last. In this, I will do the opposite of what I did all these days. I normally listed the books that I thought suited well for a prompt. But here, I will list all the prompts for which I believe Harry Potter Series is the answer.

And so, the 30th Day of the Challenge is in the name of Harry Potter. Here goes the list:

  1. A Book that I have read more than 3 times – Probably this is why I haven’t read many books. Every time I get a chance I read Harry Potter books. They are so loaded with twists and interconnections that I find new things every time I read them.
  2. My Favorite Series – ย Harry Potter
  3. Favorite book turned into a movie – But the movies have only 20% of what is in the books. They don’t talk about the characters in depth. You can never understand Lupin, James, Lily, Ron, Luna, Hermione, Snape, McGonagall, Dumbledore, Malfoy, Hagrid… what am I doing? I can’t list them all. You don’t know any of the characters in detail unless you’ve read the book.
  4. A book that you wish more people would have read – All the seven books. There is a lot you’re missing if you haven’t read them.
  5. Favorite book universe – Hogwarts
  6. Your Hogwarts house – Hufflepuff.
  7. Favorite platonic friendship – Harry and Hermoine
  8. Favorite fantasy book – No guesses!
  9. My comfort books – I am not sure what this means. But yeah I amย more thanย comfortable reading Harry potter. ๐Ÿ˜€

If any of you are planning to read the series for the first time, a word of caution. The first book is a bit dragging because it takes time for the setting to sink in. Do not stop reading until Harry reaches Hogwarts. You won’t stop after that.
It is amazing, how a little baby with a scar became such an important part of my life.

However, the other day, a friend told me that he thought that Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was overrated. I believe many people think so. Here is what I feel. The Harry Potter series is loved by all and the rating goes to the entire series.ย Almost all the HP fans have agreed that this book was a bit boring (including me). So, it truly cannot be called overrated. ๐Ÿ™‚
Finally, the 30 Days’ย book challenge ends. I can’t say I completed the challenge in 30 days. But Iย did post everyday. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I was unwell for a couple of weeks and yet I managed to post. ๐Ÿ˜› Many of you don’t know that I started this blog in 2010 when I used to have only about 12 posts a year. Last year on wards I picked up pace and here I have 30 posts a month!ย I’m impressed!
I got many blogging friends through this challenge. I came across many book lovers, I learnt more about the books I should read (And I shouldn’t). Many thanks to all of you who encouraged me to complete this.
Lots of Love

  5. Christy Birmingham

    Great that you like the Harry Potter books. Do you like the movies as much as the books?

    1. Ranju

      No Christy. Not even 40% of what is in the books haven’t been shown in the movies. ๐Ÿ™ It is sad.

  6. Maniparna Sengupta Majumder

    Can’t agree more on the HP series. I never find the movies up to the mark with the books. The books let your imagination wild, the books make you pining to become an 11-year old kid…That boy has the magical power to make you happy in his victory, cry in his pain ๐Ÿ™‚ I just love, love this post <3
    Finally, congrats on finishing the 30 day challenge… ๐Ÿ™‚ keep writing…

    1. Ranju

      Hi five Mani!!! Well said as always. Sheesh! That kid with a scar!
      Thank youuuuuu ๐Ÿ˜€ that was indeed a finish. I hope I don’t become lazy like before ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Ranju

      Thaaaaank youuuu ๐Ÿ˜€ Um… hehe I kinda was taking a break ๐Ÿ˜›

  8. Akanksha Varma

    I found HP5 to be the best and HP7, HP3, HP4. The rest are okay. HP6 is the book I like the least! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Also, Peeves! The movies don’t even show him! And Remus and Tonks’ love story. And how James was actually not a douchebag and turned into a kind, caring person. And the movie Ginny had so less screen space, and hardly any emotions that the book Ginny had. Her bat bogey curses.
    Oh don’t get me started on Harry Potter, I can go on forever!
    Also, things movie ruined #1. Book 4, “Harry did you put your name in the Goblet of Fire?” asked Dumbledore ‘calmly’.
    Movie 4,”HARRY DID JA PUT YA NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIYAH?! “

    1. Ranjini

      Yes yes yes! Haha it is always a pleasure to find like minded potterheads. If you aren’t there already, you should join the group on fb – Pottermore – More than a Insider.
      Of all, I was really disappointed about Ginny’s cast :/ And Parvati & Padma’s Yule ball outfits! What in the name of merlin’s beard was that!?
      For a potterhead like you, if you haven’t already watched, you should check out ‘The Greater Good’ on youtube. It depicts the duel between Dumbledore & Grindelwald. Also, ‘Snape & the Marauders’ ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Coffee Table Thoughts (kaushiki98)

        Oh I am! I’m one of the most active Potterheads there xD
        And I saw both of them. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Haha! Always excited to meet a fellow Potterhead! Just visited your blog. Keralite too! Naatil evideya? ๐Ÿ˜€
