I do so apologise that I forgot to post last week. I was at a 3-day intensive karate camp feat. 6 training sessions which was each around 2 hours long. Yes, it sounds kind of gruelling, but it was super fun! I learnt two new katas–Saifa and Tekki 1. Plus, if you remember me going on about the Tokyo Olympics’ karate results, you can probably piece those two together…
Today, I wanted to do something fun and light! I was initially planning to write a Complete Narnia Review since I re-read the entire series for the umpteenth time, yet realised that’s kind of…also intense? So, instead, I’ll be sharing the Books + Music + Movie recs for Each Hogwarts Houses from another fandom I’m re-reading–Harry Potter!
– The Illuminae Files
-The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
– My Hero Academia
– Stand By Me/Dead Poet’s Society
– Attack on Titan
– Beethoven Symphony no. 5, Dvorak Symphony no. 9
> My thoughts
A. This was one of the most fun lists to come up! I love the Gryffindor energy and their Shonen Jump vibes. 🙂
B. At the same time, it’s probably the second most-removed from my own personality…which is another reason it makes me kind of excited about it.
C. Random thing, but my fav. Gryffindor character is probably Hermione and the Weasleys. (Sorry, Harry!)
– To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
– I Capture the Castle
– March Comes Like A Lion
– 100 Days of Sunlight
– The Sound of Music/To Kill A Mockingbird
– Tchaikovsky Waltz of the Flower, Delius Coppelia
> My Thoughts
A. This one has the warm, fuzzy vibe that I totally want to stay soaked in!!
B. I think that Hufflepuff is the most removed from my own personna–although I’m still a nice person, I do swear–so I wish I can be more relaxed and be at-home. ☺️
C. My fav. Hufflepuff is Newt and Cedric. Obviously.
– The Secret History
– The Picture of Dorian Gray
– Sorcery of Thorns
– The Promised Neverland
– Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no.2, Debussy Clair de Lune
> My Thoughts
A. This is my house!! So obviously, a lot of my tastes and favourites are reflected in the recs…
B. I really love the intellectual and magical vibes of Ravenclaw. I also love the pursuit of wisdom and ideas, too!!
C. My fav. Ravenclaw of all time is Luna. She’s also probably my fav. character in all of HP 😉
– Six of Crows
– Crime and Punishment
– Wicked Saints
– Tokyo Ghoul
– Schindler’s List/Goodwill Hunting
– Verdi’s Requiem, Chopin’s Funeral March
> My Thoughts
A. Personally, I think that Ravenclaw and Slytherin are THE dark academia houses in HP. Which, btw, is saying I loved them to pieces 😆
B. If I was not in Ravenclaw, I’d love to be in Slytherin despite their bad rep. I love the grungy-vibes and everything angsty about this house.
C. My fav. Slytherin character is Draco and Severus and Regulus!!
And that’s it for today!
