My Harry Potter Adventure Begins

Here's the truth, I haven't read all the Harry Potter books! I know it's a crime BUT I'm reading them now! A few years back I read 'Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone' and 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' but I never got around to reading the rest of the books, though recently I have been craving the magic that comes from the Harry Potter story and decided I would read all of them (re-reading the first two as well) and oh wow it's been a GREAT decision! I'm so glad I decided to pick the books up again and hopefully this time I'll actually get round to finishing all seven of them!!


Luckily my mum has pretty much all of the Harry Potter books and so I didn't need to panic and go out and spend loads just to start reading these beautiful books! (Although I must admit, I LOVE the new covers and the new illustrated book is to die for!!). Any book that I don't have, I've been searching in charity shops for! I'm only two down and then I'll have the whole collection!

This book is such a good feel book and I loved recreating the story in my head, it was a fun and magical read. It made me realise how much I adore the story and reading the books just makes the story even better, specific details the films have missed (although I am really impressed with how true to the book the films are!). The 'Philosophers Stone' was also really fast paced and made it easy to read. I'm normally a REALLY slow reader, but with this book and how its written I swam through it!

I haven't got much more to say about this book other than I utterly enjoyed it and I can't wait to continue the books!

  2. Don't worry, you're not alone - I haven't read any of the HP books yet! Though my friends have told me to read them every day for about 5 years now, I still haven't got around to it yet! Actually there are a lot of popular series I haven't read yet... (Have a post about it in case you would like to check that out: http://a-thousand-books.blogspot.de/2015/10/popular-books-i-havent-read-yet.html)

    Have a fun time reading HP! :-)

  5. I'm a die hard Harry Potter fan, books and films. I got the Illustrated edition for my birthday and very nearly cried. It's beautiful. I'd love to know which book is your favourite once you've finished the series!

  7. I am a huge Harry Potter fan (or potterhead as we call ourselves) and I LOVE the books. I keep re reading them, but this round I got stuck with the fourth book and haven't continued since last year because I keep finding new books I want to read first. It's always great to see new readers who've decided to read the books because they're truly great! :)
