Harry Potter Reading Binge Here I Come!

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?


  1. I'm a little jealous. I want to read the series again. I only read them for the first time a few years ago and I want to read them again! Have fun reading!

  2. Hi Adriana! It's funny I should read this post because I just watched the last Harry Potter film and it convinced me to continue on with the series. Now I know that everyone has read the Harry Potter books but for some reason I only just read the first one this year, but I am going to make book 2 my next read. I hope you enjoy, Happy Reading :)

  3. I've only read 4 books! I just didn't grow up on them, so it never occurred to me to read them until I was in my late teens. Hehe. I DO love them, but I think I would've appreciated them more at 12. (And plus the internet has spoiled most of it for me. But that's my fault! I should've read them earlier!)

  4. I'm also doing a mandatory reread of the Harry Potter series as well! :D Glad to hear you are too! <3 Thanks for sharing!

  5. Have fun! I have read and re-read the HP series so many times I have lost count. I don't think I have re-read the books tho for like two years now. Maybe that needs to change.
