Home in the Burrow

If you had to choose to live within a novel, which would it be?

That was a question I answered in a book party some time ago. I delightedly went, 'without much ado Harry Potter's Hogwarts! What a place to explore! I'd like to transfigure arrogant Malfoy into a cross-eyed cockroach. *kidding* And when I feel like cutting Snape's class I'll hang out at Hagrid's hut. Then during summers head to The Burrow. As Ron Weasley says, "it's not much, but it's home."

The kiddo loves Harry Potter. He watches the first two installments over and over hiding behind the door and saying, "I don't like this..." each time. Then he watches it again, runs to the door again, the ceremony goes on :) For fun I thought of listing our

Thirteen favorite places in Harry Potter:

1. Hogwarts the moving staircases and all the magic learning!
2. The Burrow 'dilapidated and standing only by magic' ah!... wonderful
3. Hogsmeade Village appeals to the country girl in me
3. Madam Puddifoot's is where we will have high tea
4. Diagon Alley shop til I drop
5. Shell Cottage a newly-weds' home must be sweet and lovely
6. Weasley's Wizard Wheezes I want their anti-acne cream
7. Honeyduke's Sweetshop for my sweet tooth
8. The Leaky Cauldron when one day in Diagon Alley is not enough
9. The Three Broomsticks running a pub and living above it
10. Scrivenshaft's Quill Supplies good old writing paraphernalia
11. Magical Menagerie offers advice on animal care and health
12. Florean Fortescue's who doesn't want choco-raspberry with chopped nuts?
13. Flourish & Blotts books of course

Have you got a favorite place in Harry Potter or any literary place really? It's fun to imagine yourself in them sometimes.

  1. I chose HP as well! I honestly can't imagine a better world to live in (aside from the Voldemort drama..)!!

    Here's my response: http://blueeggbooks.blogspot.com/2012/05/booking-through-thursday.html

  2. Great choice. It'd definitely be fun to live in Hogwarts :)


  3. That cottage intrigues me.

    Have a great TT!

  4. I like Godwick's Hollow, myself. (I think I have that right). But love HP. Great choice!

  5. Great way to tie in the two memes! JK Rowling's world would definitely be a fun one to explore. Thanks for visiting!

  6. That would definitely be an adventure. I'd love to see them play. Here's my BTT

  7. Great list! It's the sign of a wonderful fantasy when you can really imagine yourself living in that world, even when you're not actively turning the pages.

  8. Yay! Harry Potter was my answer too! You can read it here: http://abookandashortlatte.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/booking-through-thursday-43/
