Study On Potter ♡

9 Jan

So… it is 11:34 PM and I just finished reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

** To refresh your minds: **
I grew up reading Harry Potter. Despite reading books 2, 3, and 4 more times than I am willing to admit, I haven’t read any of the books since I read Deathly Hallows the day it came out. It was about time I picked up my good old friend Potter once again. ♥

I went back into J.K. Rowling’s world panicked. I feared I was not going to be able to enjoy Harry Potter as much as I did as a kid… Baahahaha! How wrong was I! That book held the same magic to me now as an adult-well, even more so now than I can appreciate the writing. Hell, I even teared up edged Hagrid gave Harry the pictures at the end.

I am dumbfounded by the reactions this book has been causing on me. I even got the tickle in my guts because of it. Gah! I love great books.

Time for book #2: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Happy New Year, I’m back!

7 Jan

Hello everyone!

I’m, finally, back… and with a bunch of posts lined up for you in the near future- ready to show you, guys, the geeky stuff I’ve gotten. On that note: I’m sorry I was MIA for a while; I had my birthday, got an internship, some events, and then there was the madness that we call holidays. It has been a weird and fast-paced couple of months, but I got to be artsy and juice it.

2014 started off well, and I decided that my first read of the year will be, *drum roll*, Harry Potter (the whole series).

I’m reading this for so many reasons. First and foremost I need to reboot my reading-I’ve been barely reading since I graduated; and what better way to do it than with the best series ever, my constant companion while growing up, Harry Potter.

In between books, when they were still coming out, I would read the rest all the time in between, but I haven’t read the books again after finishing the series. I’m coming back to them with so many expectations, wondering if it will still sway me; and scared as well-I hope growing up didn’t turn me into a muggle. Yet then I think of all the ways in which Harry Potter is still always present in my day-to-day life and that fear fades away. I’m actually starting to get the tingles of excitement.

It’s also very special because it will be the first time I read the whole series in just English. I’m curious if that will make some things different this time around. I’m so excited!

Come with me, friends, on this journey I decide to take again. Share the magic with me! ♥

Now tell me: what will your first book of the year be?
