The Harry Potter Spells Booktag

Hi there, welcome, welcome.

It's been awhile since I've done a booktag. I have been waiting to do this Harry Potter booktag like... Forever!
I was behind on a lot of reviews and wanted to do those first.
I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I can't believe I'm almost done re-reading the whole series!
I celebrated my birthday yesterday and I got some awesome books and nice Harry Potter merch as well, so it was a fun night.

Right now is the best time to do this blog, while I'm in such a huuuugggeee Harry Potter-vibe!!

Here we go.

Ella’s no stranger to sacrifice. Pursuing a professional career in ballet demands that she risk everything, including remaining in war-torn London to continue her training. Dancing has always been her singular desire, until reserved American Jesse Cohen transfers to her school. When partnered in a production of Giselle, Ella glimpses a new side of Jesse and works to break through his defenses. Their tentative friendship blossoms into romance, but happiness is not theirs to keep. Jesse mysteriously vanishes, confounding the authorities and breaking Ella’s heart. When all searches fail to locate him, Ella takes matters into her own hands. She begins with the attic - their secret meeting spot - where a strange melody pricks her ears. Following it, she ventures an unusual attic door, down a dark path, and into an idyllic, magical realm called Arcadia.
