Hype or Like Friday: Magical Items From Harry Potter

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Hype or Like Friday is a weekly meme that discusses hyped books and was created by Jillian @ Rant and Rave About Books, Larkin @ Wonderfilled Reads, and Britt @ Geronimo Reads.

August is Harry Potter month! Check out this month’s discussions on the Hype or Like Friday’s Goodreads page!

Today’s discussion topic is: If you could choose 3 magical items from any Harry Potter book, which would you choose and why? Explain what you would do with them and how you would use them to your advantage.

This is my first Hype or Like Friday post so bear with me!

1.) A Wand

I know this isn’t very creative or thoughtful but come on it’s a wand! You can do pretty much everything with a wand! I would use a wand for lazy things like shutting lights off, cooking, cleaning, or getting the remote after I’ve sat down. Those things are pretty advantageous right?

2.) A Broomstick

Once again I’m not exactly breaking the mold here but flying on a broomstick would be amazing! I would probably use it to fly to work and pretty much fly anywhere I’d need to go, there isn’t exactly a lot of broom traffic……so that’d be quite the advantage of a broomstick right there.

3.) A Pensieve

I think out of all the magical items and trinkets that a pensieve would prove to be one of the most useful and potentially the most fun. I would use mine to store all of my best memories and relive them, how does that not sound fun? If I needed to remember something particularly important then the pensieve would come in handy then as well!

    I laughed at the broom traffic comment! Lol! But I definitely agree for your first two, but I’d pick a hypogriff (not sure about the spelling on that one) for my third one if that is considered magical.

      I’m not sure how I’d handle the height issue with a broomstick now that you mention it….maybe I’d just…look straight ahead? Haha! I’d also probably break things as well!
      Thanks for linking your post, I’ll check out your answers too! 🙂

    Ooo love this post, I would of never thought of the Pensive. Definitely would want the wand and broomstick but also I think The Time Turner, it would be so cool to be able to go back in time although where I would go? I don’t know! haha

      Thanks! I almost added the time turner to my list but I think I’d go back and do something stupid like….move a rock and then mess up the entire future, haha! 🙂

    I would go for a wand, pensieve and … a flying Ford Anglia! haha 🙂

      I think maybe the Anglia would be better than a broomstick! Less worrying about heights and balance, haha! 🙂

    Wand, broomstick, and either a time turner or a snitch just because I can 😁

      A snitch would be a fun thing to have but I wouldn’t go for a time turner because I’d be too afraid of messing up the future! 🙂

    Great choices! The pensieve is definitely my favorite, but a wand and broomstick are also essential in the wizarding world 🙂

      Thanks! I think I’d want the pensieve the most honestly because, yes, the wand and broomstick is essential! 🙂

    Awesome choices! I’d love to have any of these, especially a broomstick; that would be so fun to go to work on! 😀 I’d definitely also love a time turner, though I’m sure I couldn’t be trusted with one. I’d probably screw up and cause the end of the world or something! Haha!

      Thanks! Those were my exact thoughts about the time turner and why I didn’t include it! If I was guaranteed safety from messing up the future I’d definitely get one, haha! 🙂

    Since someone mentioned hippogriff, I would like to have a niffler! Or maybe a phoenix…


    • thesassygeek March 6, 2017 / 3:50 pm

      Both would definitely be awesome as well! I hadn’t seen Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them yet when I wrote this post otherwise I definitely would have put Niffler down since the one in the movie was adorable! 🙂
