Top 5 Thursday: Favourite Harry Potter And The Globet of Fire Quotes

Hello book lovers.

If you follow me on twitter or are my friend on goodreads, you may know that recently I’ve finished Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire, by J.K. Rowling, for the first time.

I’ve tabbed this book 21 times in total, so I have some favourite quotes, some plot revelations and some BABE’s moments tabbed. Today I’ll be sharing with you my favourite quotes from Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire (in the order which they appear in the book).

If you don’t want to be spoiled for this book, I suggest that you don’t read the following quotes.

 

  • “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” – Sirius Black ( Chapter 27 – Padfoot Returns )

 

  • “You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!” – Albus Dumbledore (Chapter 36 – The Parting of the Ways )

 

  • “What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does.” – Rubeus Hagrid ( Chapter 37 – The Beginning )

 

  • “Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.” Albus Dumbledore ( Chapter 37 – The Beginning )

 

  • “I don’t want it and I don’t need it. But I could do with a few laughs. We could all do with a few laughs. I’ve got a feeling we’re going to need them more than usual before long.” – Harry Potter ( Chapter 37 – The Beginning )

 

Bonus quote: (because we all need to know this nowadays)

  • “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”  – Albus Dumbledore ( Chapter 37 – The Beginning )

 

I also wanted to share a moment in Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire that almost made me tear up, it is near the end when Harry is in the nursery recovering, chapter 36:

 


Mrs Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of ever being hugged like this, as though by a mother. The full weight of everything he had seen that night seemed to fall in upon him as Mrs Weasley held him to her. His mother’s face, his father’s voice, the sight of Cedric, dead on the ground, all started spinning in his head until he could hardly bear it, until he was screwing up his face against the howl of misery fighting to get out of him.

The Harry Potter Spells Tag

Greatings fellow book lovers.

I think a big important thing about the book community is Harry Potter, half, or maybe more, of us consider J.K. Rowling a queen, me included. Harry Potter is one of the best series ever, I would be the happiest person ever if I could enter in this amazing world.

This book tag was originally created by Turtle Symphaty on youtube, I’ll link the video here but for some reason it is no longer available.

Here it goes, the Harry Potter Spells Tag:

1. EXPECTO PATRONUM : A childhood book connected to good memories.

CapturarNever Kiss a Witch! is the obvious answer for this one. I loved this book so much when I was a kid, I remember it was the first book that gave me the butterflies.

Something that I really enjoyed as a kid, actually nowadays i still enjoy it, is when the main character understands that the popular guy doesn’t deserve her attention and she finds other person that actually likes her, I believe I always valued the fact that you know that you deserve better than some stupid guy who believes he’s the center of the universe.

When I was looking for the goodreads link for Never kiss a witch!, I found out that it is actually a series and not a stand alone like I always thought it was, now I feel bad for my younger self, I should have read them all, they were really funny and sweet.

2. EXPELLIARMUS: A book that took you by surprise.

When I received this book I must admit that I was kind of disappointed, my sister had received Everything, Everything in the same day and I was just like “How can she have the book that I’ve been craving for?”. Overall, I ended up dnf-ing Everything, Everything and giving 4 starts to Finding Audrey on goodreads.

I am fully aware that Finding Audrey is full of flaws, the writing is not perfect, the side characters are not the best, but it doesn’t matter that much when you have a main character dealing with an issue that is very relatable nowadays, but even though this is a usual subject, it is never analysed enough and the way that the author deals with anxiety in here is really genuine.

 3. PRIOR INCANTATO: The last book you read.

I was very convinced that I would hate The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater as soon as I picked it out, but I wanted to see if the hype was true. When I finished it here’s what I published on goodreads:

Capturar

Maggie Stiefvater has the power of leaving me speechless whenever I finish one of her books, I can never organize my ideias and my feelings. I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE!

4. ALOHAMORA: A book that introduced you to a genre you had not considered before.

I have never been into non-fiction before, I thought that I wouldn’t like it, but turns out I read an amazing book called We should all fe feminists, since then I have read another book that was non-fiction and now I am really looking forward to read more books about feminism.

The other day, I came across this post about We Should All Be Feminists and I believe you should read it, the author has an amazing point of view about this topic and she has so much talent when it comes to writing.

I know that I talk about this book in every single tag, but I love it with every cell I have. 😁

5. RIDDIKULUS: A funny book you’ve read.

I think we all agree that the Percy Jackson books are funny as hell, the book I am going to choose for this one is Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, I read it last year and I remember laughing so much while I was reading it.

I learned some things with this book:  1. I was right when I said that greek mythology was not boring at all; 2. HERA THREW LITTLE HEPHAESTUS OUT OF THE WINDOW! 3. That was lots of incest between the gods. 😒😒

oconnor.jpg

6. SONORUS: A book you think everybody should know about.

I was here by Gayle Forman is a book that deals with suicide so you should have that in mind before picking it up.

Cody and Megan were best friends, inseparable, until Megan commites suicide and suddenly Cody starts to question how much did she actually knew about Megan’s recent life. Cody can’t handle the fact that Megan is dead, so she tries to find people to blame for her death.

This is an emotional story about redemption and “finding a way to move forward even in the face of unspeakable loss”.

I think that suicide is kind of a tabu topic on our society, you don’t want to talk about it when it happens in other families, you are not able to talk about it when it happens in yours. This has to change.

Something you must keep in mind is that this is your life, and even if you don’t have a saying on not getting depressed, you have a saying on getting better, you choose to get better. There is always something worth being alive for. Life is a gift, please don’t throw it away. 

If you want to talk, you can contact me on twitter, talking makes things better, talking to a stranger may be easier than talking to a loved one.

7. OBLIVIATE: A book or spoiler you would like to forget having read.

If you read The Death Cure and died on page 250 you know what I am talking about. I got spoiled for a mind blowing part of the Maze Runner trilogy and even though I cried like a baby when I read it, I believe it would have been diferent if I didn’t knew about it, it would have surprised me and killed me.

8. IMPERIO: A book you had to read for school.

giphy

I read many books for school, I liked one. I just think that it would be better if they upgraded the books that we are forced to read to books that actually mean something to our society, that can make us better citizens.

The books I read gave an awesome ideia of what was the society in 1875 and 1717, it really does, but we should be reading about books that give us an ideia of the poor society we live in nowadays.

That’s why I liked “Felizmente há luar!” (fortunately there’s moonlight!) because, unlike the others, they talk about people that are willing to fight for what’s right and for what they believe in.

 

9. CRUCIO: A book that was painful to read.

Everything, Everything, I hated the main character, it was disappointing to read such a genuine ideia being thrown out.

 

10. AVADA KADAVRA: A book that could kill (interpret as you will).

Leigh Bardugo ia a genious and Six Of Crows took over my life. The back stories of the six main character can kill you, I am warning you, it is emotional as hell.

As I’ve said before, if someone ever decides to make an adaptation out of this duology, PLEASE, let me play Nina, I’ll probably kill an amazing adaptation but PLEASE!

Top 5 Thursday: Books that have personal meaning to me

Everytime I read a book it means something to me, I’ll probably remember something about it forever, but these books are different, these books mean special things to me, personal things.

I can’t choose only one book out of this series, I always loved them all. When I was a kid, my godmother used to give me tons of books, she thought every ocasion was good to give a book, I remember that she gave the first ones when I didn’t even knew how to read. Geronimo Stilton was the series that marked my childhood the most.

Geronimo Stilton was and still is a big part of my life, I own 15 books and also some movies. I don’t quite know why this was such an important thing on my childhood, I devored those books, I believe they were the first books I read about mystery and crime solving. Today I consider it to be the series that got me into reading.

 

  • Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix: Goodreads

I’ll admit it, please don’t throw rocks at me, I read Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire before I read the rest, actually I’m reading them in order now.

There I was, a 12 year old girl spending some days on her uncle’s house, with a 800 pages book on her hands, excited like hell to read it. I read this book in 4 days and as soon as I finished it, I started rereading it.

Everytime I am feelling down I reread this book or the one that is bellow this one. Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix still is, to this day, my favourite Harry Potter book and I believe it is going to keep like this.

 

4.12 stars of rating on goodreads, pretty good, but not enough, this book deserves all the starts for a simple reason: it has the character that everyone in the book community was waiting to read about.

Cath is like us, a fangirl, she reads, she writes and she is considered one of the most relatable characters I have ever read about. Fangirl has different and unique characters.

Relatablility is the thing that puts this book in this list, every time I read Fangirl it speaks to me in a very magical way, I can, without even trying, to place myself in Cath’s place.

 

I read this book in an afternoon, it was the fastest book I read in my life, I loved every single sentence of it and I will read it and recommend it and quote it to anyone who believes gender inequality is a non-existent thing. *Mr.whompa loompa, president of USA*.

Capturar.PNG

Because of this book you can see that in my blog’s sidebar, specifically on my Get To Know Me text, I consider myself a feminist and I’ve been doing it since I read this book, it doesn’t mean I wasn’t a feminist before, I just started calling myself a feminist then because I realized that it was a bigger issue than i thought.

This book made me the activist that I am today, last year, in the same class, I managed to make a public speaking about Gender Equality ( in which a got 20/20) and a essay about environment, two things that I am really passionate about.

 

I finished reading this amazing book in June 18th, I created this blog a couple of days after it. This was the book that got me into blogging.

None of my friends reads fantasy, most of them are into contemporary and romance so when I finished acomaf I had an urge to talk to someone about it, it was he best book I read this year and the feelings that it left me with were taking over my life. Therefore I created High Lady’s Library which now is big part of my life.

Summer Reader Book Tag

Summer. Probably my least favorite season. Don’t get me wrong, I love summer vacation but as I am a person that doesn’t stand hot weather, summer is not for me.

But there is one thing that I love about summer: even though it is so hot I can barely exist, I have plenty of time to read, my summer vacation started a month ago and I already read 7 books (now that I think about it is not that great but is better than before 😶).

Today, I’ll be doing another tag, called the Summer Reader Book Tag, this tag was created by islandOFdri, you should check her video out, you can find her on youtube.

  • Lemonade: Pick a book that started off bitter but got better.

I’ve Got Your Number is a book that I took a long time to get into. When I finished The Sea Of Monsters, I could feel that I was falling deep into a big reading slump so I just decided to read a funny contemporary to kick it off.

For me, this book from Sophie Kinsella was slow in the beginning, that lead me to think that this was a shitty book but suddenly things started to happend and I was sucked into the story and overall it was just a super funny and cute contemporary.

chf-dduuaaa3nbg.jpg

  • Golden Sun: Pick a book that made you smile beyond compare.

A Court Of Mist and Fury was probably the awesomest book I read this year. It was a book that me smile beyond compare, i cried too, but I smiled so much whenever the Inner Circle was together, they are so funny, especially Cassian and Mor.

  • Tropical Flowers: Pick a book set in a foreign country.

Name a book, I bet it is not set in Portugal, I have read few books that take place in my country, so I’m going to take this question to another level:

Tropical Flowers: Pick a book set in a foreign world.

A Court Of Thorns and Roses series, what else could I choose? Despite the war, Prythian is where I would like to exist, I would be the person that would belong to a court but live her life traveling from court to court to keep the peace between them, besides I would be able to connect with all of the High Lord’s  (except Tamlin, I just want to punch Tamlin, right now).

I took a quiz and it seems that I belong to the Dawn Court, which one do you belong in? Leave a comment letting me know.

  • Tree Shade: Pick a book in which a mysterious or shady character was first introduced.

For this I’ll choose The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve got to admit that I didn’t like this new mysterious character at first, but as I went more into the book, this character gained a place in my heart and his actions showed that he deserved it. Personally, I loved that the author didn’t focus only on the younger romances, she made this as realistic as it could be.

(If you haven’t read this series, what are you doing reading this? Get out of here, run to the nearest bookstore and buy The Raven Boys, you’ll not regret it.) 😉😉

  • Beach Sand: Pick a book that was grainy, and the plot barely developed

I actually don’t remember reading this book that much, I remember what it was about and that I liked it but I think not many things happend in it, An Abundance Of Katherines it is probably my least favorite book written by John Green, I think it was funny though.

large-31.jpg

  • Green Grass: Pick character(s) that were full of life, making you smile.

There are so many characters that are awesome answers for this, but I am only going to choose two of them. The first one is Grover from the Percy Jackson series, Grover is just so adorable, he is caring, sensible, connected to the nature and just so happy, it makes me happy all of his jokes and his innocence. The second character is Blue Sargent (The Raven Cycle), the fact that she is different, all of her trees in her room, her home and her family, the way she dresses, the fact that she is full of power, she tranpires life and creativity.

  • Watermelon: Pick a book that had some juicy secrets.

I’ll Give You The Sun is a book involved in secrets, it tells the story of twins, Noah and Jude, each of them caries a secret that can save and destroy the other, they keep it for them and that destroys them and their relacionship. In this book we follow their story as they unravel all the secrets and find their way back to each other.

  • Sun Hat: pick a book that had a vast, big universe/setting.

I was going to answer Harry Potter and that is the obvious answer, but as it’s obvious my answer is a new obsession of mine: Six Of Crows. I love how this book is so complex with all the different places where all of the characters come from and all of the languages they speak, I believe this was the setting for the Grisha Trilogy too, but I don’t quite remember.

large (3).jpg

  • BBQ: pick a book in which a character was portrayed as a hunk.

I’ll tell you about a series that has a bunch of characters portrayed as a hunk and let me tell you that just like Blue, I sometimes feel like I am in love with all of them: THE RAVEN CYCLE.

I know I’ve already talked about them so much, but I can’t not to, I am in love with that series, I wanted to jump into the third book as soon as I finished The Dream Thieves.

In this series, you’re introduced to 5 main characters: Blue Sargent, Adam Parrish, Ronan Lynch, Richard Gansey III and Noah Czerny, the four guys are the ones that give name to the first book: The Raven Boys, as they the raven boys and since I started this series, I’ve seen all of the boys as hunks.

I found this opening credits for the series the other day and let me just tell you that if this is not the physical representation of The Raven Boys, i don’t know what is.

 

Just to clarify, I need to say that I have no ideia how to talk less in tags, I just ramble in every answer, sorry if this is too long.

Feel free to answer a question in the comments, I would very much like if you did. 😉😉

Love, Eliana.

2. When I was little, I was chasing my sister around the house, I fell and I broke my teeth, four of them. I spent a year in pre school with almost no front teeth.

5. I have a page in my journal dedicated to travel planning, and I have a never ending list of places that I want to visit, some of them in my own country. The best trip I went on was to Salamanca, Spain, with my friends and we’ve been thinking about going back since we came back in April.

6. I am fluent in English and I’ve learned it, in the beginning,  with the Harry Potter movies.

11. I am crazy for superheroes, my favorites are Captain America from Marvel and The Flash from DC.

04c12-washitape1HHHHH

1. What book/series got you into reading?

My godmother was the person that got me into reading, she always gave me tons of books that I devored, but my favorite series that I read and reread several times as a kid was Geronimo Stilton, to this day I still like to watch the cartoon and I am 17.

2. What are some of your favorite artists?

I am a music addict so this is a long list: Imagine Dragons, Halsey, The 1975. Fun., Panic! At the Disco, Ed Sheeran, Melanie Martinez, and I am currently obsessed with Gone Now by Bleachers.

3. What are some blogging tips you have for beginners?

I am a beginner myself so I am not the best person to give advice about that.

4. If your life-story was being turned into a movie, who would you want to play you?

Let’s face it, my life is too boring to be turned into a movie, but if I turn out to be the badass activist I aspire to be, then I want Lindsey Morgan to play me, not because we look alike but because she is able to kick every dictator’s butt herself.

5. If you could travel through time, would you go take a peek at the past or would you rather see what’s to come and go into the future?

I would go into the past to see if what they taught me in history class was true.

6. What’s your dream career/job?

I’ve always wanted to be a doctor, but that dream is almost impossible because my grades are not that high, so I’ll be applying to nursing school. Also, as a part time job, I would love to work in a library.

7. What’s your favorite childhood movie?

When I was 7 years old, my cousin gave me a movie called Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses, when I was older my favorite movie turned out to be Madagascar 3, I even remember seeing it with my godmother in cinema.

8. What was your favorite subject in school?

Math was my favourite subject and I think I was good at it, I actually scored 19/20 on my math exam. Math and books have the benefit of taking my mind of my problems.

9. Do you collect anything? If so, what is it that you collect?

Everytime I buy something, whether it is for me or a present for someone, I keep the receipt. Now I have a box full of them and I find it awesome how I can look at them and think “Oh, i remember buying this on this trip”.

10. What’s your favorite thing to do besides reading?

Watching tv shows or movies.

11. If you could live anywhere in space (e.g. any planet, galaxy, star, moon, etc) where would you live and why?

I would still live in Earth because this is where all of the magic is happening, but I would love to travel through our galaxy, which would only be possible if I lived for thousands of years.

Booktube-A-Thon TBR

Hi fellow booklovers.

I’ve been planning this reading challenge for a while and after many days of indecision, I think I have built my TBR for this year’s Booktube-a-thon.

If you never heard of Booktube-a-thon before it is a reading challenge where people come together to read as many books as they can in one week. During this week they host challenges, giveaways and competitions and many people join booktube-a-thon such as famous booktubers and even authors. This reading challenge was created by Ariel Bisset and you can find more information in the booktube-a-thon youtube channel and website.

Personally, I don’t own a youtube channel, I guess I’m too shy for that, but I want to participate anyways so I’m going to join it. I won’t be reading the book that Ariel picked because it is not published in my language and I can’t find it anywhere.

Here’s my TBR:

1. Read a book with a person on the cover: 

For this one I’m choosing The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, I really enjoyed The Raven Boys but I can’t get attached to the second book in the series for some reason. Since it is booktube-a-thon, I decided I’m going to push through and try to read this book, because I bet that this series is amazing.

5871d6a6ea282ea977033a7144216573

 

2. Read a hyped book:

I am finally giving up and I’ll reading City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and I want to read this for 3 reasons: Sebastian Morgenstern (and I got a huge spoiler about him on pinterest just now), I want to read The Infernal Devices and I want to read The Dark Artificies.

4c7a0cc855d5f6b72e31add3adb9c5b0.jpg

 

3. Finish a book in one day:

Random Illustrated Facts  by Mike Lowery was a illustrated book sent to me by Net Galley so I could review it, I’m actually having a bit of a problem with downloading it but I believe this is the one I’m going to read in one day. Besides it must be short and fast paced so I’m really looking forward to reading it.

 

4. Read about a character that is very different from you:

For this, I’m going to choose The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. Do I need to explain why me and Percy are so different? I mean he fights monsters and gods and I’m on my couch practically all day.

5080222fda132b88cb855293dd2598b8.jpg

 

5. Finish a book completly outdoors:

I hope to get this over as soon as possible because out there is worst than the dessert during the day, I think I’ll burn to death if I step outside, so I’ll be reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (I hope I got that name right). I saw a cartoon when I was a kid about the adventures of the little prince and I believe I’ll really enjoy it.

 

6. Read  a book you bought because of the cover:

10600242

 

 

 

I fell in love with this cover and this is a feminist manifesto, it is called How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran and I hope to read it during Booktube-a-thon.

 

 

 

 

 

7. Read seven books:

I am also planning on continuing to read the Harry Potter series, so I’ll be reading Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling, this doesn’t need introduction, if you don’t know Harry Potter: have you been living under a rock?; if you don’t like Harry Potter, what are you doing with your life?

 


This is my Booktube-a-thon TBR and I really hope that I can finish these 7 books, I probably won’t but I can dream.

Hope you enjoyed this post, if you did check out my other posts.
