Harry Potter is almost over! Only two more movies, and well then what am i going to go all fangirly over every year ? Of course i could always.....rewatch the movies, reread the books, because really they never get old!
As i'm sure you've guessed i'm a Harry Potter fan, a Huge one! And like quite a few Harry Potter fans i don't want it to end, I want a book eight, nine, ten, because well that epilogue didn't really live up to my expectations, but I know that I most likely won't get them, because its hard enough to write 1 books let alone 7, so maybe it isn't fair to ask for more...
In my last blog i made a list of my top ten Harry Potter characters and Dobby was number 1. He's just so......Dobby. "Master has given Dobby as sock! Dobby is FREEEE" whats not to love ? But of course i do love all the characters even Voldie! I love little things about each of them, I love Bellatrix's madness, I love Hermione's intelligence and I love Tonks' clumsiness. Every characters has a trait that I have grown to love!
I remember when i first saw Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, i was i think maybe 7 or 8 ? But anyway, i was like "but this was in the book and its not there, the book is so much better!". I still maintain that the book is better but i've learned to enjoy the movies in their own right. When i found out the last book was going to be 2 movies i was not happy, at all. I wanted to see the motion picture version of the last in a series i love all in one piece not broken up. But maybe it is for the best. Although it is not the biggest Harry Potter book, there is a lot in it...that and it gives me the opportunity to have a fangirl attack 1 more time.
I think it was either 01, or 00 when i got my first Harry Potter book, i remember having it read to me and then me reading it and the second one, and even bringing it into school so that the teacher would read it to the class! It was a big book for me, now unlike a lot of people, it wasn't the book that got me reading, that was the Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle (very funny book by the way). But I think Harry Potter started my love of reading. Made me want to discover new books and read as much as i could.
I consider Harry Potter to be my childhood, it is something i have grown up with. As i got older and more mature so did the books. I can think back 9 years and remember getting the Chamber of Secrets, i don't remember that much from 9 years ago but i remember that. The memories i have of and have had with Harry Potter don't just bring me to Hogwarts in mind but also to real places, like my living room, when i read The Deathly Hallows in 6 and half hours, or my Nanny's spare bed room were i borrowed her copy of the prisoner of Azkaban. I think that, that is the beauty of the books, apart from the fantastic story, and characters and well just general awesomeness of the books, they have played such a big part in my life, that I can recall nearly every moment i've had with them, and for many other things i can't say the same.
