I have had the most wonderful craving to reread the Harry Potter series. I've only read the books once oddly. I grew up with the movies and my brother grew up with the books. I never really wanted to read the books for some reason even though I loved the movies so much. I don't know why I refused for so long but right before the sixth movie came out I decided to go on a reading marathon and read all the books as fast as I could so I would know how it ends. I believe I took a week or less. As I was on this week long journey I could not stop reading. It led to many sleepless nights... I resorted to tricking my parents to thinking I was asleep then getting up and putting on a dim light so I can continue reading for just one more chapter. I knew what happened in the books based off the movies but the story was on a whole different scale of captivating. Also, there are some events the movies don't get to so it was always fun exploring new to me moments in the books.
So after what... four years? of not reading Harry Potter I've decided I'm going to give in to my inhibitions and read the whole series. Later on I might write about my favorite quotes or scenes from each book or note something interesting that you don't see in the movies. Hopefully I survive this craziness and you'll actually see me on here. Wish me luck!
Do you absolutely LOVE the Harry Potter books or have you never picked up a single one of the books? What do you think of the series as a whole?
