September 19: Hermione Granger’s Birthday | Daily Literary Quotes @ Literary Cobblestones

Hello Cobblers!

Today in literary history we celebrate the birth of one of my all time favorite characters — Hermione Granger!

Of course I fandom-ed out and had a hard time choosing what to keep, so let’s get into it.

First up, a collection of gifs/ moments in which Granger was a total badass, by Movie Pilot: “Harry Potter: Top 10 Hermione Granger Moments.

If that’s not enough gifs for your Saturday, check out MTV’s even larger collection: “ ‘Leviosaaaa’: The 42 Greatest Things Hermione Granger Ever Said.” 

Going in more a scholarly/creative writing perspective, I found a preview of a book on Google Books: “Hermione Granger Saves the World: Essays on the Feminist Heroine of Hogwarts.” As it’s a preview, there are many pages not included, but I was able to get enough from it that I now know I want to purchase it.

The Google Scholar search that brought me to the last book also brought me to another essay collection, published by the University of Missouri Press: “Hermione Granger and the Heritage of Gender” by Eliza T. Dresang. The majority of this chapter is readable in the preview, and it is only one section of the book titled “The Ivory Tower and Harry Potter: Perspectives on a Literary Phenomenon.”

All the best Saturdays contain Hermione Granger.
