The end of the Read-A-Thon

Ok last post for today.

The challenge or ending quest or whatever is to rewrite a scene or an ending. I am definetely not going to do that since I am a creappy writer and I definetely (yes I am going to publish this) HATE fanfiction. Sorry not sorry :P

So the next and last part is a round up:

1. What was your page reading goal? How many pages did you end up reading?
     I already said this more times I can count: I am a slow reader I didn't really expect to finish          the book. I have 147 pages left which is fine by my standards ^^

2. What books did you read?
    Only one for the Read-A-Thon: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
3. What book was your most/least favourite?
    Most favourite: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
4. What challenge did you find the hardest to do?
    I wasn't really satisfied by my dating profiles after I saw the post of bookshelfreflections but I     can live with it. The recast challenge was the hardest for me because I couldn't stop. So             many great actors so many roles. Ahhhh still hurts my brain to think about it ^^ But it was still     a fun challenge.
5. What challenge was the most fun to do?
    See above
6. Did you make any new blogging friends?
    Since I am not a blogger no not really xD

7. What was your biggest reading distraction? How did you get over it? 
    My tv of course. But I got it under control since it was "only" one week.

8. What was your reading schedule? Were you a morning or evening reader? Week or weekend?
    ATM I had alot of time but I definetely prefer the evening reading. I am not a morning                   person!

9. Are you and Lupin still friends? Do you still want to keep hanging out after the read-a-thon is
 over or will you lock them away somewhere to maybe contact them again when the next read-a-thon comes around (if ever)?

   Yes I think we still would be friends. I would definetely not keep him chained to me in the near future but we would be in contact like normal friends.

10. Would you do this again?


The Weekend

Since I hadn't had a minute off on the weekends to post (you know with all the reading going on and I helped my dad with my small siblings and stuff) I am posting the chalenge from the weekend today.

I never posted an update how far I got but I will tell you now. I am definetely a slow reader so it came as predicted I couldn't pull through the whole book. I will still finish it but in  a different pace. I stopped at page 460 which is the beginning of a new chapter and have 147 pages left.

And now to the questions:

  1. What house do you think you’d be in? What house would you be in if you could choose?
  2. You stand in front of the mirror of Erised, which shows your greatest desire. What do you see?
  3. What’s the first thing you would do with an Invisibility Cloak?
  4. “The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.” What would you do with the Philosopher’s Stone?
  5. You’ve made enough Polyjuice Potion to turn into another person for an entire day. Who would you be and why? (For funsies, the person may be dead, alive, fictional, or real.)
  6. A Boggart turns into what they think is your biggest fear. What would your Boggart turn into?
  7. What would your Animagus be?
  8. You just got access to a Pensieve and have all your memories and thoughts to access. What memory would you like to revisit?
  9. The Harry Potter universe deals with a lot of prejudice – prejudice against werewolves, inferiority of house elves, arresting and murdering Muggleborns. Hermione started S.P.E.W. (Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) when she was 14 years old. What would your action plan against prejudice be (or are you fine with the way things are)?
  10. Here’s an age-old question for you: good or evil? E.g. Would you join Voldemort because you revel in his power, or because you’re afraid of it? Would you stand down and fight Death Eaters, or hide and wait until it’s over? Please note that both sides have cookies, so that’s no valid reason to join the Dark Side.

1. I am on Pottermore like Inge but I got sorted into Hufflepuff ... Since I kinda think this is not the right house for me I would actually choose Ravenclaw.

2. Huh that is a really tricky question.Since I want to be perfect in at least one thing in my life I guess I would be a world class Pole Dancer!

3. I guess I would really try how good it works and then show it to my best friend so we can think of stuff we could do with it.

4. I can't really answer that. Moving on.

5. I want to be Iron Man for one day. Just because I can :D

6. In the books it would definetely be Lord Voldemort. I am a scaredy cat when it comes to him. In real life I don't know for sure but I think everyone I love would be dead around me...

7. A horse.

8. The moment that i first met m best friend. I can't really remember it but I would love to!

9. Huh since I hade a girl in my class with albinism and she had a problem to be accepted it class I can tell you what I did back then. They really bullied her so someone from class had to stood up. Since I wasn't a popular person back then I knew that you have to adress them directly and point it out to them. Wasn't easy but they stopped it the minute that I really got angry and screamed at them. At least they left us alone after that.

10. Ok cookies aside even if the dark side had better cookies I would NEVER join Lord Voldemort. I would probably train for fighting against him since I hate hiding but I don't know if I would male it. But as always those kind of questions can't be really answered only in theorie. You have NO idea at all how you would react if you never where in any situation like this.

Just found out that my Patronus would be a lion hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaa :D

Day 3: Recast

Day 3

So today we are supposed to put together a casting list for the book we are currently reading.

As I am reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I will recast a few but not everyone.

So for Harry, Ron and Hermione I think they cast the right people but please please please different 

hair for Harry (hello he never had straight hair like Daniel give him a damn wig) and for Hermione too. 

She has super bushy hair on the books and since I saw Brave I would say Hermiones hair should be like 

Meridas but not that orange ^^

And here is Harry how he is pictured on the german books. I would totally go with this hairstyle

I would have loved Ian McKellen as Dumbledore. I know he is Gandalf but still.

I would have picked Johnny Depp as Sirius I am not really a Gary Oldman fan and I always pictured 

Sirius differently. (yes I know both Dumbledore and Sirius are dead but for me it NEVER happened)

Definetely a different Ginny because sorry Bonnie Wright is just not right. I pick Dakota Fanning 


James Marsters as Lucius Malfoy :D

I keep the Phelps twins obviously and I keep Molly and Arthur but someone different for Tonks. Maybe 

Ashley Greene.

Going into a different direction again but I HAVE TO recast Cedric Diggory. I’ll go with Joseph Gordon-

Levitt. I know he is too old but Cedric is supposed to be good looking and Robert Pattinson isn’t xD

Christopher Walken as Rufus Scrimgeour

David Tennant as Remus Lupin

Keeping Snape and Malfoy and definitely Voldemort (but as discussed with Inge and found on the 

Internet I would try Benedict Cumberbatch as Lord Voldemort)

Where do I fit in Tom Hiddleston? Just because! Maybe as James Potter hah!

Hugh Jackman as Fenrir Greyback (sorry not sorry)

And last but not least I have to somehow  fit him in Michael Fassbender. He will be Xenophilius 

Lovegood  hahaha!

Oh yeah and btw.  Dudley is too thin :P

Ok so if you disagree sue me :P

Couldn't do more people I already spent two hours for those few.

So bye for now!
