Harry Potter #91

This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come in the Harry Potter section of my blog here.

Best Minerva McGonagall Line
“Are you quite sure you wouldn't like a cough drop, Dolores?” 
Professor Umbridge Professor McGonagall
I just love how often she completely owns Dolores Umbridge! 


  1. Haha, great moment. She's pretty cool, but I guess the moments with Umbridge are the best! :)

  2. I picked a McGonagall/Umbridge moment, too! :D McGonagall always seemed to know EXACTLY how to handle dear Dolores, lol.

  3. This is a most excellent moment. McGonagall has so many great moments with Umbridge! I picked a moment involving Umbridge as well. :D

  4. OH YES! I included that one too. I loved that she puts Umbridge in her place so well all while remaining classy. Great choice :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  5. Umbridge is the most nails-on-chalkboard character ever. Every time McGonagall stood up to her I felt the need to cheer :D

  6. I freaking LOVE how McGonagall OWNS Umbridge at every.single.turn. in OotP!! That moment ^^ was one of the best ones by far! McGonagall was THE PERFECT answer to stupid Umbridge's vileness :D

  7. McGonagall and Umbridge interactions where probably my fave parts of Phoenix! Both book and movie, I hate Umbridge with a passion and having Minerva McGonagall putting her in her place was a joy to read (and watch!).

  8. In this book she's totally the best, throwing Umbridge around like a rag doll! I laughed so hard every time there two were head to head, so brilliant!
    Great pick!

  9. I LOVE McGonagall! She's one of my favourite book characters ever, she has some of the best lines. Her moments with Dolores in OotP make me laugh so much every time I read it.


Please leave a comment, I love reading each and every one of them :).
