Hey Y’all! I am finding myself this Saturday night thinking about Harry Potter – as I saw the movie on tv.. How in the world have I not read this yet??
I will admit, it came around during the “height” of my Twilight “Addiction” — So I was basically eating, breathing, living Twilight. I can clearly remember even reading during stop lights ( I know – terrible!!) – So maybe I somehow skipped it over.
I actually started reading the first book at least three times, but then I would revert back to something else – I distinctly remember the first book up until the moment Harry meets Hagrid for the first time and I was so glad he got away from that terrible cousin/aunt/uncle – I also remember loving the fact that they called humans “muggles” – what an awesome word, right? I loved the first visit to the alley where they get all the “magical” supplies and in the movie I LOVE the first dinner at Hogwart’s and just how awesome they constructed this wolrd via the movie – Personally I just loved all the movies.
So – I didn’t watch any of the movies promising myself that I would read first, then see the movies. And up until the last movie was released on DVD I kept to this promise – but by this time I had started reading and shortly after blogging, and now my schedule is packed! I don’t review everything I read, but I try too and I’m so bogged down with stuff I’m SUPER excited to read that i keep putting this off until I have more “time..” – all of my fellow bloggers know this feeling.. SO maybe I should make this my mid-year blogging resolution? What do you all think??
Let me hear what you think — Should I read it now, make that a huge bookish commitment to have done by the first day of 2014? OR if i’ve seen the movies and loved them – should this stay this way? I am not a huge magic fan or wizard fan.. but I kind of put this into a different category…
Anyway – let me hear it, what do you think?? Should I stay a misinformed Muggle – or do I make this a resolution right here and now to get this right and read these books??!
