So I’m a Harry Potter junkie.
That makes me better than silly Twilight junkies, because, hello, Harry Potter is way better than Twilight. lol
I started reading the Harry Potter books when I got the first one when I was in 7th grade. I got it for like Christmas (or maybe my birthday – they’re close enough to get the presents mixed up when remembering, lol) from my grandparents. Even then, I loved reading, and I loved reading books that had to do with magic. (For example, the first chapter book I ever read was The Worst Witch.) So Harry Potter was a perfect fit for me. I instantly loved the books, and as the movies came out, I instantly loved them too. To be completely honest, I still love the books and the movies. lol I was like silly excited when the last book came out…even though I was like 21 or 22. John even got me a box set of the books for my birthday this year. Before that, my sister and I had the whole set broken up between us that we passed back and forth. By the time I got my box set (she got a box set also for Christmas), the books we had were pretty raggedy from years and years of reading.
As the final movie drew near I went back and forth between excited about seeing it, to being sad about it being the last. (more…)
