Re: Siblings!

I have one younger sister and four younger brothers. Technically two of my brothers and my sister are half siblings, but that whole concept just seems silly. I also have a younger cousin who I count as my little sister.

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

Sirius' death was the one that hit me the hardest reading the books. I think because he was the first character I cared about (sorry Cedric) to die. I don't think I cried, hardhearted little nine year old that I was, but it definitely got to me. Many hours were spent re-imagining a different outcome...

Re: Vegans/Vegetarians Unite!

I was raised vegetarian and still am. I have gone through periods of being strictly vegan, usually at times when I've had massive food issues, but I'm currently just vegetarian. I am planning on cutting out dairy again, because ethically I can't justify it and it doesn't make my body feel good. I mi...

Re: Nineteen Years Later-SPOILERS!!

Happy Nineteen Years Later! I'm slightly gutted not to be on my way to Kings Cross right now. Given that I have only read the epilogue once and then listened to it once, I was surprised by how much I did remember. The only thing I had forgotten was Albus' fear of Thestrals. I'm going to be completel...

Re: Favourite Characters in Fiction

Lyra Silvertongue in His Dark Materials (Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass) is still my absolute favourite character, despite all the books I have read since meeting her back when I was a precocious nine year old. I have just reread the Northern Lights and fallen in love with Lyr...

Re: Dystopias and Similar

I don’t know if you have already read some of the more classic dystopias, but I have finally got around to reading Clockwork Orange this summer and it fits the bill. The protagonist, Alex is a 15-year-old boy and it’s written in first person from his perspective, which makes it all the more intense....

Re: The Topic For Introductions!

Hello, Rowan here. I'm a Ravenclaw first year, it seems no matter how many sites I've been sorted on I always end up in Ravenclaw. I'm 23 (absolutely ancient, shh). I live in the UK and try to read as much as I can, but being a student nurse doesn't leave a lot of free time. I'm excited to be here, ...
