Least Favourite Book
A tough decision but prompts a confession on my Harry Potter journey. My least favourite is:
Time to confess. I was in primary school when I first picked up this book. We all had to take a book home to read for homework and I picked this one up. No reason for it. Just picked it up, checked it out and this was the book that was coming home with my 9/ 10 year old self. I don't know if it was because I had to read it for homework or what, but I read the first chapter and hated it. I put it down, didn't pick it up again and forgot all about Harry Potter until I was taken to the cinema by my parents to see Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone... where I fell in love. So there you have it. I was a Potter convert via film, not book.
Saying that, not much has changed in how I feel about Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets. I adore them now, don't get me wrong, but they're not the most exciting of books. I prefer it later in the series where events are so much darker and shit is really going down. I think it's because the films are on too much as well. I feel like I've OD'd on the first two and haven't had enough of the other give books!
