Witches and Wizards - Tuesday Teasers
In honor of the release of the final movie in the Harry Potter series, this week's teasers are from books with either witches or wizards. My guess? Someone will list them off before I get a chance to stump anyone, just like with my vampire theme.
And in honor of the release of the final movie of the Harry Potter series, I will now sit down and actually read the series. That's right. I've never read a single one. But now I'm feeling left out:-( I want to see what all the hype is about. I liked the couple of movies I saw, but I want the whole experience. So off we go!
1) Coming to the aid of a wounded whale, Kit and Nita are plunged into deep wizardry. The whale is a wizard, and she enlists Kit and Nita in battle against the sinister Lone Power. Becoming whales themselves, Nita and Kit join in an ancient ritual preformed by whales, dolphins, and a single fearsome shark. But which poses more danger; the Lone Power, or ed"Rashtekaresket, the enormous shark as old as the sea?
2) Everyone says that Gwendolen Chant is a gifted witch with astonishing powers, so it suits her enormously when she is taken to live at Chrestomanci Castle. Her brother Eric (better known as Cat) is not so keen, for he has no talent for magic at all.
However, life with the Chrestomanci and his family isn't what either of them expects. Worst of all, magic is completely forbidden outside of lessons! Gwendolen is furious ans sets out to get herself noticed - with explosive results!
3) A year ago, I was on the white-magic side. Lately, I've been leaning toward the black. I blame the universe. What's the point in being a nice little white witch in the universe I've got? If I could choose my own universe' I'd be a white witch in it. But black makes a whole lot more sense in this universe.
Not that I'm complaining. A witch never complains. But if I did, I'd have a lot to complain about. For instance: Richard Milhous Nixon High.
What's a teen witch to do when she's stuck in the most unmagical high school in the universe? Create her own "majix." Take notes. And above all, avoid nasty classmates, heartless grown-ups and boys who may prove a little too distracting for a serious teen witch to handle...
What? You didn't actually think I would put Harry in the list, did you? That would be too easy.
Can you name any of the titles from this list?
