Top Ten Tuesday #42

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Bookish People I’d Like to Meet

Today’s prompt nearly stumped me enough to skip this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post. However, since I haven’t joined in the fun since January, I decided to work through it. The original prompt is “Bookish People I’d Like to Meet.” I decided to put a spin on it and go with “Hogwarts Teachers I’d Like to Take Classes From.” Here are my top ten:

Albus Dumbledore

Any Subject

Minerva McGonagall


Filius Flitwick


Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank

Care of Magical Creatures

Rolanda Hooch


Horace Slughorn


Bathsheda Babbling

Ancient Runes

Aurora Sinistra


Septima Vector


Remus Lupin

Defense Against the Dark Arts

I don’t really have an interest in Herbology or I would’ve had Professor Sprout on my list. If I had to take Divination, I’d take it from Firenze not Professor Trelawney so I’d actually learn something. Because I’ve been sorted into Slytherin, I may take potions from Snape but I’m a little iffy on that since he’s so moody. And, even though I love Hagrid and could learn a lot, I think Professor Grubbly-Plank would be safer, LOL.

What about you? Which bookish characters would you like to meet?

I learned in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that life is full of dialectics, or two opposing truths. In this case, the two opposing truths are: 1) I don’t agree with JKR’s stance regarding trans people, and 2) I still love Harry Potter.

      Definitely! 😀 And, he did teach transfiguration before he became headmaster. However, since Dumbledore is one of the most powerful wizards, I’d love him to teach me any branch of magic. LOL.

      I was mostly stumped because it was 2am and I was tired. 😀 Now that my brain’s less exhausted, I could come up with a few other “bookish people I want to meet” lists. LOL.

      Thanks! 😀 I really enjoyed coming up with this list. Yes, Buckbeak. I’d love to see the hippogriffs and thestrals, but some of his other creatures are a little too scary, lol.

    I love Harry Potter but I have to admit that I don’t remember Grubbly-Plank, Babbling, Sinistra, or Vector. My much-younger cousins used to look at me in horror when I admitted I didn’t remember something from the Wizarding World. 🙂 Your schedule looks like a lot of fun though! Great twist!

      Grubbly-Plank took over for Hagrid in the fifth book. She’s the one we see the most of in the books. The other teachers are mentioned in passing, but I looked up which ones were the best teachers of those subjects. LOL. 😀

    Firenze would be a super cool teacher, especially with the classroom transformation he does! I also vibe with his perspective of “we don’t know shit so mostly just don’t worry about it” 😂
