'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Q: What hyped up book was worth all of the fuss?

It has been a long time since I've gotten to speak about it so I definitely have to say the entire Harry Potter series! I'm still mourning the end of the series, the books and films always leave me with an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia and sadness that they're over. Usually, I'm adamant that books come before films, but the very first film is what made me retry the first two books. So, so glad that I did because they improved dramatically the more Ms. Rowling wrote. It's a shame the owls lost my Hogwarts letter...



  1. The film is the reason why I read the books. I liked the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone movie more than the book, actually. Still, they are both very wonderful.

  2. I whole heartedly agree! Although I did read these before the movies. I liked the idea of magic and everything. I remember in 6th grade our teacher read to us for a short time from it. Then I think it was later that Xmas--I must have asked for it but can't remember--my grandma got me the first book.

    Of course this is just how I am remembering it. I could be wrong. But for some reason I have cemented that as a memory!

    Yeah, the owls must have lost my letter too!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  5. It's a shame the owls lost my Hogwarts letter, too :) If only!

    I definitely think HP is a series that deserves all the hype surrounding it. Even now, there is tons of hype about HP, 5 years after the final installment was released. AMAZING!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  6. I can't believe I didn't think of Harry Potter for this one. It's just on another level from other books entirely. Great answer!
