Muggle World

As a child, one of my favorite things to do was read. Oh, how things change.

When you’re a child, your imagination runs wild. There’s no overthinking, analyzing, comparing and contrasting, just a free running mind. My favorite part of the day was sitting down and reading a book. The best part about reading was that you could let your thoughts flow just as fast as the words in the book would come. I saw every book in movie form while I was reading, or so it seemed.

The Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling, tops the list of my favorite books. I remember not being able to wait until the next book would come out. In the magical tale, Harry Potter was admitted into a school of wizards and learned the ropes of witchcraft and wizardry. He and his new best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger work together throughout the books to learn wizardry, explore the world, and fight the evil beings.

The moment when the newest book comes out!

One of the coolest things about the Harry Potter series is that the first book came out when I was 1 year old, in 1997. Obviously, when I was 1 I couldn’t read. I first started reading the books when I was about 8 years old, my older sister would read them to me. She always would make me laugh by calling Hermione in a different way. Her reading the book to me helped me get into the book. The 7th and last book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, came out in 2007, a whole 10 years after the first release. By the time the last book came out, I was all caught up and roaring for the final book to come out. My aunt came to pick my sister and I up to take us to Sam’s Club to buy the last book. When she came inside she tried to fool me.

“Harry dies! I saw people outside in the street revolting because Harry died!”

She lied, but boy did she have me going. I was crying. I couldn’t tell if I was crying because Harry died or because that spoiled the book for me.

P.S.

The movies were good too!!

    I remember when I first grabbed a Harry Potter off a bookshelf and the heartbreaking moment when I put down the last book as I finished reading it. It was a truly exciting journey to follow the young hero as he defeats evil at every corner. This book should be recommended to anyone of all ages, especially lovers or fantasy and magical worlds. Good job on describing one of my favorite book series.

      I find it very funny that your favorite part of the day is reading Harry Potter. But great blog dude, I like the way you explain things.

    I, too, love the “Harry Potter” series. I loved the books and the movies. Unfortunately, I did not get into the books until a few years ago, so I missed out on all of the excitement of waiting for the new books to come out. I have, however, been able to take part in other exciting “Harry Potter” things, like the “Harry Potter” areas in Universal Studios theme parks. They are amazing by the way-no matter how crowded it may be. I appreciate your love for the books and movies. Happy Posting!

    I also really liked the Harry Potter series. Though by the time the 7th book came out I was a tad burnt out, so I never ended up reading it. I definitely agree though that the movies were good! Lots of times there is a big drop off between book and movie, but not for Harry Potter.

    I think that’s why Harry Potter caught on as well as it did, it was paced so well with kids as they were aging that it grabbed this age group and then didn’t let go.
