Harry Potter

by J. K. Rowling (Joane Kathleen Rowling)

This books are great! At first I thought they sounded kind of weird, but when I bought one I thought it was really good. It is about a boy named Harry Potter who is adopted by his horible aunt and uncle and he can do really strange things. Then a mystical letter arives and soon after that he learns he is a wizard! Read all of the books of Harry Potter to find out about all his adventures at Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry while he battles with the altimate dark lord. My favorite one of these books is Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Askaban book 3.

OK, this is my Harry Potter story at a glance:

Read the first book in one day, finished the series by third grade.  (started in the summer?)

Reread the books.  Watched the first 4 movies over and over again.  Only ones I could watch at the time.  re re read books.  set my personal best for reading 7th - 3 days.  re re re read.  finally watched 5, 6, 7, 8.  re watched, re read.  memorized every word in the movie.  re watched.  became obsessed(cuz i wasn't already!?)  developed crush for harry stuck for years.  done with reading so suffered depression until fifth (i think) grade when i found a new book to read.  still obsessed.  decorated bedroom wall. got hp trivia game.  still liked harry.  re watched. lost crush for harry.

here i am today, typing non stop about my harry potter experience!  You know what i'm doing today?  Standing up to hp haters, re reading, re watching, and still obsessed!  :D

I LOVE the Harry Potter books!

But... so many people die. So sad. I shall now say very dramatically and sadly all the spoilers, AKA people who die. 





*Serius Black... Seriusly! He dies... It's just so sad, it really makes Harry unhappy! Waaaaaaaaah!! :(

Dumbledore. WAAAAAAAAH!! He was always there!!! And then, Poof! Gone! Harrry in total depression here!!!!!!! :(

Mad-Eye!!!!! WAAAA-AAAA-AAAAA!!!! Always there for Harry! Although him dying wasn't actully really sad for Harry. :[

Hedwig!!!!!! Even though he was just an owl.... that death was really sad. :(

Profesor Lupin!!! And Tonks!!!!! So sad!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! Well, at least they got to die together. :(

Dobby!!!! I liked him. He was a little wierd, but he was always just so nice  to Harry. :(

Severus Snape!!!!!! WAAAA-He actully killed Dumbledore.... but it turned out he was good! So many mixed feelings on his death for me. :(

Goerge Or Fred!!!!! JUST HORRIBLE FOR THE OTHER TWIN. Harry's in turmoil now.*

And so that ends my sad list of those who died. (At least, the people who I remember reading about dying.)

*Note: Those listed here are not listed on when they died.*

Rest In Peace all those who died in the HP books, Rest In peace.

I absolutely love Harry Potter! The Half Blood Prince is my favorite. It is devastating when Dumbledore dies though.Cry

These books are definitely entertaining, but I also think they are kind of cartoonish and predictable. Though they are fun to read, and I can completely understand why everyone else loves them so much.

These books are so good! I love how J.K. Rowling writes with passion and feeling. Although the book is fantasy, the characters also face some real life problems and learn life lessons along the way. Laughing
