So…I’m super super excited to be reading the Harry Potter series! My parents, as much as I love them, were very very strict. Their strong Christianity beliefs didn’t allow them to have dealings in magic, paranormal or spell type theories. That’s the way they took it at least. I, however, grew to love these stories and had to hide when I wanted to read them. (Definitely a stubborn and determined child.) I was barred from reading anything Harry Potter or any other magical nonsense like that.
As an adult, I can read whatever I want! Whoop Whoop! So of course when I remembered that I’d been gifted the Harry Potter series by an old friend, I was ecstatic! I’ve read the first three Harry Potter books. My complete thought was that I can read the books and then watch the movies as I go along. I’ve watched the first two and haven’t yet watched the third. It’s been a great adventure!
I was actually quite surprised at home much I enjoy the stories. Have you ever thought of how different your imagination is when you’re a child as opposed to when all thoughts of magic have left you? Have you noticed that when you get older the belief that things like talking books, floating tables and brooms that fly dwindles? I was scared that I wouldn’t love the books as much because I’m such…an adult! Sounds silly but when you really think about it you’ll see it’s true.
I definitely would recommend these books. It doesn’t matter if you’re a young child or an adult looking to get your imagination back you will enjoy these books! I loved the movies too! The story line greatly with the books. They did such a great job! I can’t wait to finish the series and read the rest of the stories!
