During these hectic and dismal times, I thought it only fitting to bring back a little bit of magic to the world. I’ve created a book tag, #hogwartscoursebooktag to bring us home to our favorite magical world. I am tagging http://www.wizenqamot.wordpress.com https://thehufflepuffnerdette.wordpress.com/ and https://maevaeatsbooks.wordpress.com/ and challenging you and anyone who wants to try, to find books for each of the Hogwarts course themed prompts below. The only catch? No repeat books!

A class about charms deserves a charming professor. Find a book with a swoon worthy (charming) hero.
