Bookish Scenarios Tag
Thank you to FOREVERSHANNON for nominating me to participate in this tag. I love doing these sorts of posts, even if they mainly laud the Harry Potter series, I’ve tried my best to make this more than just about Harry Potter. I really have! Everyone check out Shannon’s blog, we’re new followers of each other, but I can already tell her blog is right up my street!
This is the first time I am participating in a Top Ten Tuesday! I have seen many people I follow participate in this weekly challenge, and after seeing some of their posts today, I thought I would quickly rustle up my own Top Ten Tuesday post in response to this week’s challenge, which has been created by the blog The Broke and the Bookish.
Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander …
Eddie Redmayne has been announced as Newt Scamander in the continuiation of the Harry Potter Franchise in the film adaptation of J. K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find them short book that was released in 2001 as part of Comic Relief along with another book, Quidditch Through the Ages. (I’m lucky enough to have bought both of them at the time of publication!)
Emma Watson Tribute
With having some time on my hands after finishing university for the year, I thought I would do something a bit different and a bit more in depth. Therefore I decided to combine the main function of this blog (reviewing) with a beautiful and talented young woman in a kind of tribute post. The young lady I am referring to is Miss Emma Watson. As some of you may or may not know, I have a huge crush on Emma, I can neither confirm or deny that I have her calendar, posters and a signed poster in my bedroom…For many Brits around my age she was probably one of our first crushes, and due to the Harry Potter book series becoming almost a sacred text in Britain, and especially since the films came out, the world, Emma now has a global fascination. The film series has complimented the book series and is now recognised as the best film franchise of all time with devoted Potterheads around the world and of all ages. Emma’s appearances in the Harry Potter franchise are what she will always be most famous for, but since her early days as the frizzy-haired know-it-all Hermione Granger, she has developed into an exceptional young woman. Not only is she an actress who is getting better at her craft in a variety of roles, but she is also a University of Brown graduate and a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. I have included some of my thoughts on each of the films she has appeared in, some gifs and photos of said films (Sorry for the huge amount of them!) and a mention to her upcoming film work and her HeForShe involvement.
