Oh my gosh, how do I even put it into words? I guess I’ll start with a confession. I tried to read this book almost 4 years ago, either before it came out or right after (I’m pretty sure I had a review copy from NetGalley). I read maybe two chapters and just…quit. And never picked it back up again. Now that I’ve finished it, I’m asking myself: WHY?! I put off reading it for years because I was afraid I […]

CAUTION: Spoilers if you haven’t read the series! Oh my gosh, how do I even review this?! I was completely blown away by this book. I think it was my favorite of the series, besides Prisoner of Azkaban (because Sirius Black, of course). My absolute favorite part of this book was Snape’s memories after his death. HOLY. SHIT. You guys, I was fucking bawling. I know he acted like a horrible person, and I probably shouldn’t romanticize him, but his […]

CAUTION: SPOILERS I actually can’t believe I’m on the last book already. I was always intimidated by the size of this series (and the size of the books in it), but it has flown by! So fast in fact that I don’t want it to end. I am in awe at how much this series has gotten under my skin! I’ve tried to read other things in between, instead of just binge reading, but I’ve found that I have trouble […]

CAUTION: SPOILERS! I am seriously becoming so addicted to this series! I feel like each book gets better and better, and now I can definitely see why everyone was saying that the books were way better than the movies. There’s so many little wonderful details in the books! I must say, I’m kind of upset that I was robbed of the feeling I should have felt at the death of Sirius Black. I knew he was going to die at […]

I am getting so addicted to this series! I love the magic of it, and Rowling has a way of pulling you in. This series will get under your skin! I think so far this has been my least favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed it. I have to admit I was a bit bored in the beginning at the Quidditch World Cup. It felt like it droned on and on, and I think some of that could […]

I am very surprised by how addicted to this series I’ve become! I’ve been trying to watch each movie after I read the book, but the anxiety caused by the differences in this one tell me I should probably stop doing that, ha. I’ve reached the point now where I’m starting to see drastic differences between the book and the movie, unlike the first two. I was really upset that the significance behind Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs wasn’t explained! […]
