Harry Potter Moment #202

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Happy Potter Thursday All!  Today we've got one of my favorite topics where we recommend books to characters from the Wizarding World! And I'm even more excited today because we're recommending reads for my beloved Remus Lupin ♥

Which books would you recommend to Lupin?




The Wolves of Mercy Falls - This one is fairly self-explanatory right?  The Wolves of Mercy Falls are all about people dealing with being or becoming Werewolves.  I think a teenaged Lupin would have really appreciated reading about other people with his furry problem.

The Raven Cycle - Apparently, Lupin and Maggie Stiefvater go together!  The Raven Boys are almost like another version of The Marauders. I picture Lupin taking a trip down memory lane with the Raven Boys and I think he'd enjoy them a great deal.

Lord of the Rings - And an epic, life or death questing adventure would be something Lupin could relate to.  I think he'd like Aragorn, Legolas, Faramir and Boromir...as well as Gandalf :) And who doesn't enjoy some Hobbits?!


Dead Poet's Society Movie - Ok I know that this is a movie but John Keating and Remus Lupin are both inspiration, life changing teachers.  And I don't think Lupin ever fully appreciated how significant he was at Hogwarts so I hope that this movie helps him see.

What books would you recommend to Lupin?

  1. Oh Lupin would have loved Shiver! And you are so right about Dead Poets Society!

  2. This are such great recommendations for Lupin! It almost makes me sad to think of an older Lupin reading Raven Boys and feeling nostalgic. Lord of the Rings is also such a great read, filled with friendship and heroes. Dead Poets Society is such a great pick. Part of the reason I love Lupin is because of how great of a teacher he is. If anyone insults him, multiple people always defend him, Dean most consistently besides the trio. That's the sign of a great teacher.

  3. I didn't suggest any werewolf books, but Mercy Falls sounds like it would have been a good one. Dead Poets Society is such a good choice! It never occurred to me, but you're right I think Lupin would love it!
