You have been invited to spend Christmas at the Burrow! Knowing Mrs Weasley’s tradition of knitting everyone a jumper as a present, you have decided to gift each Weasley a book…

This tag is one of my prompts for Bookending Winter 2019. If you’d like to find out more about this event, click here.

The Rules:

  1. Refer back to this post & the person who nominated you.
  2. Choose a book for each member of the Weasley family. I’ve added descriptions below, but feel free to go by your own knowledge.
  3. Tag whatever amount of people you like.
  4. If this tag is part of your Bookending Winter posts, remember to add their logo.

Let’s get started!


Mrs Weasley – a book with a character who likes to cook

One of the three main characters of Finding Colin Firth owns her own bakery. Her pies are almost magical because can make you feel loved, remember someone, or expel someone from your mind. I think Mrs Weasley would put love and magic in her cooking in the same way.


Mr Weasley – a funny book about how silly ‘muggles’ are

When I think British humor, I think The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy. Though the wizzarding world may be organised a bit differently from ours, I am sure that Mr Weasley would still enjoy the jokes about bureaucracy and all the crazy people this book is full of.


Bill Weasley – a book about an adventure

Bill Weasley is a Gringotts curse-breaker, so he probably appreciates a book with an adventure. In The Life of Pi, Pi survives for 227 days stranded on a little boat in the middle of the ocean with a Bengal tiger. If that isn’t an adventure, I don’t know what is.


Charlie Weasley – a book with a dragon

I considered many high fantasy books for Charlie, but ultimately decided to go back to this old favourite in which two brothers lead a rebellion in a fairy tale-like afterlife. Among other things, they have to face Katla, a dragon so powerful that even the smallest flame of her fire permanently paralyses you. I’ll take a Hungarian Horntail over her any day.


Percy Weasley – a book with witty writing

We know Percy as a lover of rules and order, but he also really appreciates a good pun on words even if his family doesn’t realise how funny he actually is. For example, when he suggests Harry choose the subject of divination because “it’s never too early to start thinking about your future”.

Jane Austen is the all time master of witty writing. I think Percy will be able to appreciate Pride and Prejudice. Early-books-nice-Percy, that is. Someone who treats his family as badly as he does later on doesn’t deserve the great JA.


Fred and George Weasley – two books about pranksters

When the main characters of this book use their hitman who has found Jesus and doesn’t want to kill anymore to found a church that persuades followers to give them lots of money, it is much more of an elaborate con than a prank. However, Hitman Anders And The Meaning Of It All is so hilarious that I’m sure Fred would enjoy it nonetheless.

This one’s for George, obviously. Isn’t giving your evil grandmother a potion that makes her grow through the roof the ultimate prank?


Ron Weasley – a book with a character who is a really good friend

This book tells the story of four very different girls who unite over their love for Oscar Wilde. Their friendship is so warm and supportive that they could even teach Ron and Harry a thing or two.


Ginny Weasley – a book with a kickass female heroine

Minnie from The Help is the most kickass character I know. She is brave, fierce and loyal. She has a strong moral compass and tells it like it is, while also having her fears and weaknesses. Ginny also seems like the kind of person who would be interested in finding out about what it was like to be a housemaid in 1960s Mississippi.


** Bonus Round: The Extended Family **

Fleur Delacour – Fleur works at Gringotts to improve her English. Let’s gift her an English Classic

A Room With A View is both dreamy and romantic, and full of sharp societal commentary; just like how Fleur is both a wife who bakes casseroles and a brave Hogwarts champion. It’s also not too long, which helps if you’re relatively new to the world of English Classics.


Hermione Granger – a book about books!

Meggie’s father from Inkheart reads books aloud so beautifully that he can literally read you into a book ànd allow its characters to cross over to our world. Not so handy when you’re reading a book about an evil criminal… This is a magical adventure full of love for books and reading, which makes it exactly Hermione’s cup of tea!


Harry Potter – a book about a chosen one

Who else but Frodo? Honestly, I find it quite a nice thought that they would be able to give each other comfort.



That’s it for the tag! I had a lot of fun coming up with bookish gifts for these characters who I love so much, I hope you will too!
