So… This is super! Backlist. 20 years in fact. But I just got my new 20th anniversary edition in so I am writing about Harry. Have you seen these new covers? I love love love how they all intertwine with one another. I set them all out on the couch a took a picture. 😀
I know I don’t need a synopsis of Harry Potter because… Who hasn’t read them by now? I am actually going through and listening to them on audio right now. I am on book 5. I think I started listening to them around… sometime last year. I follow along with a podcast so I only listen to one chapter a week so its pretty slow going. If you are into podcasts it’s called Harry Potter and the Sacred Text (I’ll put a link below). They – there are 2 hosts, Casper and Vanessa – treat the text as a sacred one, like how religions treat the Bible basically. Its super interesting and funny.
But since I don’t have a synopsis… I guess I will tell you my thoughts on Harry Potter. I honestly do not remember reading the first three books. But I know I did. I also know my grandma bought them(the first three books) so when all of us grandkids (there are only like 4 of us) came over she could read them to us. But… I don’t think that ever happened. Lol. I read the last one, The Deathly Hallows, when I was a junior in High School, around 2010. So I wasn’t too far behind the release date. It, honestly, took me forever to read. A couple of months actually. I loved the Half-Blood Prince and just couldn’t get over Dumbledore (still no spoilers). And… Then Dobby!? I mean just cry fest. But I got through it. And this is only my second time listening/reading/ingesting them and I just can’t believe how much I missed!
Of course, I can’t write a post without tell you all that I am a Slytherin, and I am proud of it. 😀 Also, my Ilvermorny house is Pukwudgie. My patronus is an Osprey – which is a type of bird, also called a sea hawk. My wand is Pine wood with a Phoenix feather core 12 ¼” and Quite Bendy flexibility. Now, I haven’t explored Pottermore much but I did take the quizzes and those were my results.
