So how does it work? For each Harry Potter spell named, you list a book/movie that corresponds best to that spell. For example, Reparo is a repair spell so you pick a book that had tons of potential, that with some tweaking, could've been perfect.
Make sense? Okay, let's play! Feel free to join in and post links to your surveys in the comments below and be on the lookout for Part 2!
fixes damaged objectsA book/movie that needs some serious fixing: Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr. I'd say about 50% of the book worked for me. Had they cut all the human/witch stuff and just stuck to the demon world, it would've been perfect.
creates a narrow beam of lightA book/movie that deserves more attention: Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama. I never thought I'd read a mermaid book but I did. And I liked it. A lot. Don't judge! Just give it a try. It's dark and beautiful and amazing.
counters the effects of LumosAn overhyped book/movie: The Great Gatsby by Baz Luhrmann. Leo DiCaprio is NOT a good Gatsby. That's right, I said it. This movie is all about face value. While it mightlook good, when you dig a little deeper, you find very little substance.
summons an object from a significant distanceA book/movie you’re highly anticipating: Into The Still Blue by Veronica Rossi. I flew through Book #1 and Book #2 in the series and have been anxiously waiting to see if Aria and the gang actually make it to the Still Blue.
opens unlocked doors, unless bewitchedA book/movie you want to be more open about: Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren. I'm still trying to come to terms with the fact that I not only read read but really enjoyed erotic fan-fiction. Who knows? Maybe dinosaur erotica is next!
conjures an incarnation of positive feelingsA book/movie that made you (nearly) cry: Another Earth by Mike Cahill. This is one of those deep movies that is so emotionally jarring, you'll definitely need to make sure you have a box of tissues nearby.
conjures the Dark MarkA dark book/movie you'd secretly mark as one of your favourites: The Purge by James DeMonaco. While I'm not sure I can mark this movie as a favourite (I still don't even know how to rate it!), I do like that it asks some seriously profound, if disturbing questions.
petrifies victimA book/movie you wish to keep forever: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. In Henrietta, magic is real and I want to go there.
shield charmAn intimidating book/movie you keep putting off: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. You guys, I just don't think I can handle all THE FEELS. Nothing scares me quite like a "crying" book. Except maybe clowns.
used against a boggartA book/movie with a deceiving synopsis: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Though I'd already seen the show by the time I read the book, it didn't quite prepare me for what was to come. And I don't think ANY synopsis can do this book justice.
shoots fireballsA book/movie you wish to burn out of your mind completely: Gangster Squad by Ruben Fleischer. Not even Ryan Gosling can redeem this movie. Seriously. Just don't.
levitates objectsA book/movie you wish to revisit: Divergent & Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I wasn't the biggest fan of these books the first time around and I blame my Hunger Games hangover for that. But now that I've had some distance from it coupled with the fact that the final installment was just published, I'd really like to give them another go.
causes instant deathWorst book/movie EVER: Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. To be honest, I hated both the book AND movie version. The MC is a shallow, materialistic ditz and after all she goes through, she doesn't learn ANYTHING from it. There is NO change in her behavior, like, at all. She gives women a bad name.
