I heart HP

I have a confession to make.
I love Harry Potter and I'm prepared to scream it from the rooftops! No, I don't have a crush on Daniel Radcliffe, I don't have a pet owl and I don't dress myself in Gryffindor colors. I just absolutely love love love the HP books! I too used to be very skeptical of the series. I told my friend who was intent on getting me to read them that there was absolutely NO WAY that I would be interested in a book about witches and wizards and magic. Eventually, though, I gave into the craze and was pleasantly surprised when I found myself whipping through all 7 of the very lengthy books. I am currently re-reading the 6th book right now (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) to refresh my memory before the movie comes out next week! I am so excited! In my opinion the movies do a pretty good job of capturing the essence of the books (definitely not as detailed, but still great). I have also gotten Mason to jump on the band wagon as well. He is not reading the books, but he is watching all of the movies with me so that he will be up to speed by next week. He seemed to really like the first one. Anyway, just wanted to let you know what's going on with us this week. Don't be freaked out if we start throwing terms like "muggle" or "Quidditch" into our everyday vocabulary.... We'll be back to normal by next week (maybe)... ;)


  1. LOL! My friend loves the Harry Potter books too!....she, like your friend, will not back off until she gets me to read them...I'm still holding my ground....for now...just to watch her squirm around for giggles...because I really like the movies :)


  2. It is fun to see the movie after you read the book. I can't wait for New Moon to come out. I know I should read more since I'm reading teacher. I just don't!

  3. I can't wait for the new movie! I am making my husband take me to see it even though he hasn't read any of the books! -e

  4. I love Harry Potter too...the books more then the movies but I love it all!
