* AuthorFilibuster / WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Mark frequently stops his reviews to express how he relates to the book's various takes on racism, classism, privilege, white supremacy, British politics, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking why Percy is so goddamn annoying]], etc. He even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the negative side in one of his early Prisoner of Azkaban chapter reviews: "why am I unable to review anything without making it all '''[[ItsAllAboutMe ME ME ME ME ME ME ME]]'''". Since TropesAreNotBad, he usually integrates his commentary into the actual review, especially [[TearJerker when he starts writing about]] [[TheWoobie his past]].
* FriendlyEnemy / HeelFaceTurn: the Buzznet commenter [[DeadpanSnarker bradsmith]], who initially expressed animosity towards ''Harry Potter'' and very slowly becomes a fan. Slightly subverted in that he said the series only won him over in the end due to the much better writing in the later books.

%% LoveItOrHateIt: Not the blog itself, but the occasional review that only consists of transcribed IM conversations he had with his friend Kasper while reading the chapter for the first time can be fairly grating for some.

* TheWoobie: Oh god, multiplied by ''infinity''. If you didn't want to grab Mark and give him the warmest, most loving hug in history, you HAVE NO SOUL.
** Although it can sometimes be tiring how [[AuthorFilibuster he occasionally derails his reviews]]...

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Hedwig as a secret agent reporting to an unnamed shadowy owl organization. Also Harry's diary entries, [[http://markreadsharrypotter.buzznet.com/user/journal/7001651/mark-reads-harry-potter-sorcerers/ especially the first one]], where a slightly unhinged Harry is friends with the spiders in his cupboard and reads them poetry.
