Enemies to Lovers in Drarry Fanfiction

It’s no secret on this blog that I love Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy pairings (“Drarry,” for the uninitiated) in fanfiction. I found that Drarry was the pairing I read the most, by a large margin, in 2018. I think like it and certain other pairings because I have an unabashed love for the enemies-to-lovers… Continue reading Enemies to Lovers in Drarry Fanfiction

Reviewing My 2018 Fanfic Stats and Favorites

In the process of creating a spreadsheet to track my reading challenges, I realized that this was an opportunity to figure out what my fanfic reading habits looked like.

Fanfics Where Harry Potter Has New Powers

Fanfic Recommendation: Hogwarts House Exchange Program

In the first Harry Potter book, we learn very quickly that there are four Hogwarts Houses: Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. We learn more about them from the Sorting Hat’s songs and through Harry’s limited perspective, but there is more to these Houses. Like many others, I have turned to fanfiction in hopes of satisfying… Continue reading Fanfic Recommendation: Hogwarts House Exchange Program

I Binged on Fanfiction This Month, and This Is What I Read

Instead of reading a lot of original fiction or nonfiction, I read a lot fanfiction. That means I’m finally making progress on the Fanfiction Reading Challenge! I found myself in a reading slump after the semester ended, but it turned out that I needed to read tons of fanfiction. I basically read 11 fanfics, most… Continue reading I Binged on Fanfiction This Month, and This Is What I Read

I love that book’s spine: Spine designs to look for

Amazon Books and Target, be they online or brick-and-mortar, display their books with the front cover out, instead of the spine. They understand the importance of the front cover in convincing people to at least pick it up off the shelf. The front cover gives a big first impression of the book and must entice… Continue reading I love that book’s spine: Spine designs to look for

After participating in Harry Potter Month, where fanfiction counted for House Points, this year, I’ve wanted a reading challenge for fanfiction.
