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.
Check out Part 1 here and please feel free to join in! Post links to your surveys in the comments below.
puts victim in unconscious stateA book/movie with a chapter you couldn’t seem to get over: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. The Quarter Quell. Peeta. Finnick. MAGS. That ENDING! Need I say more?
causes befuddlement or forgetfulnessA book/movie that generally confused you: The Last Condo Board of the Apocolypse by Nina Post. Still the weirdest book I've ever read. But I liked it.
inflicts unbearable painA book/movie that was a painful: Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I know it's a classic but I can't. I just can't.
heals relatively minor injuriesA feel good book/movie that you enjoyed: Pitch Perfect by Jason Moore. Aca-bitches + Hot Boys + Rebel Wilson = TOTAL ENJOYMENT.
temporarily disarms an opponentA book/movie with a swoon-worthy character: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. One word: Sturmhond.
impedes target’s progressA book/movie that kept you up all night reading/watching: Legend by Marie Lu. It's the first dystopian book I've really loved since reading The Hunger Games.
immediate silencingA book/movie that left you speechless: Jurassic Park 3-D by Steven Spielberg. Jeff Goldblum AND dinosaurs in 3-D. Like the visual? You're welcome.
allows you to delve into someone’s mindA book/movie with well-developed characters: Don Jon by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is one of those movies that's more than meets the eye. Not only is the message wonderful but the characters are what made it so brilliant!
a spell that turns you upside downA book/movie that changed your mind about a character: Oblivion by Joseph Kosinski. This movie made me believe that Tom Cruise is actually a human, which is no small feat!
used to hide memoriesA book/movie with a story you can’t remember: Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Again, I blame my Hunger Games hangover for this.
useless spellA boring book that had absolutely no effect on you: Terra by Gretchen Powell. I had none of the FEELS. Just, meh.
breaks through solid objectsA book/movie that convinced you to reconsider a certain genre: Every Day by David Levithan. I'm not a huge contemporary fan but am a TOTAL book pusher when it comes to this one.
tickling spellA book/movie that made you laugh: Encino Man by Les Mayfield. Even after 20 years, this movie still has not lost its luster!
offensive spell that violently wounds the targetA book/movie that may have scarred you for life: The Notebook by Nick Cassavetes. I haven't read the book but this movie is more sadistic than any horror film I've ever seen. Seriously?! You're gonna do that to old people?! That's f*cked up, man.
makes you dance uncontrollablyA series finale that made you feel giddy: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. I saw the movie first, so I knew what was coming, but there was still nothing more satisfying than this bookish ending. So well done!
causes an explosion that breaks through obstaclesA book/movie that made you explode with ALL THE FEELS: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan. Tiny Cooper. THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!
nullifies other spellsA book/movie you thought you’d dislike, but ended up loving: Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. You and I, we had a rough introduction, book. But you pulled it out and over time, you captured my heart. THIS is the reason I have trouble DNF'ing--because sometimes you end up with gems like this.
