Friday Fives | Characters Coffee Orders

As per usual, I started Friday Fives back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to Friday Fives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.

I was going to do books with coffee on the cover, but apparently I don’t read a lot of those (any). So, I’m changing this to what I think a character’s coffee order would be. Enjoy (with a cup of coffee or tea)!

  1. Hermione Granger: a hot, venti, americano, she needs something classy but that will still keep her up
  2. Harry Potter: I see Harry going for a drink that has some coffee but mainly contains sugar (and ignoring Hermione’s concerns about the sugar content and what will happen with his teeth) by getting a java chip frappuccino
  3. Luna Lovegood: She’ll get the vanilla sweet cream nitro cold brew but be very upset that they don’t have a lavender cold brew.
  4. Remus Lupin: venti, blonde roast coffee, he knows this provides the most caffeine
  5. Neville Longbottom: a dirty chai latte, the chai latte reminds him of the tea his grandma used to make and he needs the espresso to keep up with all the kids at Hogwarts.

Happy Reading Darlings!

#FridayFavorites | Platonic Relationships

I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.

Today’s topic covers some of my favorite platonic relationships, and because of how I’m grouping them, I list six instead of five.

Girl/Girl

Lydia and Piper – these two girls have grown up together and when Piper goes missing, Lydia will do anything to find her friend. I love women/girl friendships since media represents so much cat fights among women. It’s a refreshing change of pace!

Yes, we don’t get much interaction between the two in the books. But I like to think Hermione and Ginny are really great friends!

Boy/Girl

Harry and Luna’s friendship is probably one of my favorite friendships in the Harry Potter series! They’re both so adorable and their friendship is so sure and pure.

Jamie is the descendant of John Watson and Charlotte is the descendant of Sherlock Holmes. Jamie is determined to not be friends with Charlotte, but circumstances at their school throw them together. I truly love the fact that their friendship is platonic and not romantic in anyway (so far, I haven’t read the latest book, so don’t quote me).

Boy/Boy

I cannot get over the beauty and love and wonderfulness aspect of Will and Jem’s friendship. They love each other so much and so purely, it’s beautiful!

Oh Samwise Gamgee!! One of the greatest friendships in literary history. Sam and Frodo’s friendship is the reason they make it to Mordor, and more importantly, it’s Sam’s love for Frodo that gets them there and through the end.

Happy Reading, Lovelies!
