'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Harry Potter A-Z

A Saturday post I have been doing to spread the Harry Potter love and to take us all on a trip down memory lane :).

X is for Xenophilius Lovegood
"The most eccentric-looking wizard...Slightly cross-eyed, with shoulder-length white hair the texture of candyfloss, he wore a white cap whose tassel dangled in front of his nose and robes of an eye-watering shade of egg-yolk yellow. An odd symbol, rather like a triangular eye, glistened from a golden chain around his neck"
- J. K. Rowling
'Xenophilius "Xeno" Lovegood was the editor of The Quibbler magazine, the husband of Mrs. Lovegood, and the father of Luna Lovegood. His wife died when their only child was nine years old, and he raised his daughter by himself. He was likely the source of his daughter’s eccentric beliefs, although he was often correct in his assumptions. He believed in the existence of the Deathly Hallows and supported Harry in The Quibbler when few others would.'

  1. He's such a weirdo, but I think he's actually really smart. His wife and him must have been pretty brainy, but those people are usually a bit whacky, aren't they? :)
    I like this weirdo family. :)

  2. I was a big fan of how he was the one to really give our trio the information on the Deathly Hallows...especially after how he'd stood by Harry when the rest of the world thought he was a big old fraud. He's beyond eccentric but I can't help but love him. I mean, he's Luna's dad after all!
