No this blog has nothing to do with the end of the world. I'm not that dramatic. No, this blog is about what everyone is talking about these days, Harry Potter.
My husband started reading the series by J.K. Rowling when the first Harry Potter book came out. He loved them right off the bat and encouraged me to read them as well. So as soon as he was done with the first book and started the second, I gave the first book a go. Sorry folks but I just couldn't get into the story. I wanted to, I knew it was a good story. I heard the media hype, but I usually don't pay much attention to that too be honest. I go by my gut, if I want to read something I will, it's as simple as that. Just by reading the back of the book I knew it was a good story, but I still couldn't get through the first chapter.
Now, don't get me wrong, because I love Harry Potter. I knew that as soon as I watched the first movie. I was hooked, and I couldn't wait for the next movie to come out. The imagination J.K. Rowling has is amazing. She has real talent. If she didn't millions of people wouldn't be flocking to buy the books and the movie tickets. I can't wait to see the last of the Harry Potter movies, and I honestly am sorry to see them end.
What about you? Have you ever had a hard time getting through a book, just to find you love the movie? Please tell me I'm not the only one out there. Share your thoughts, what book did you have a hard time getting though, just to love in the end?
