I’m only one of many who feel as though they grew up with the actors as we watched them in the eight films. When I watched the Harry Potter 20th anniversary special it was like catching up with old friends at a reunion. It really was magical.
I’ve noticed I use the word, magical a lot to describe quite fantastic things, but this time, it embodies everything I think about when I hear the name, Harry Potter.
I have to admit that I’ve seen all of the movies, but I’ve only read up to the fifth book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And after watching Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses, I feel quite inadequate in my Harry Potter knowledge! (I took the official Sorting Hat quiz and found out that I’m a Ravenclaw so I’ll have to study up on my house!)
After chatting with my friend about Harry Potter in general, she came up with a lovely idea. A Harry Potter blog series. I will be rereading the books I’ve already read, breaking them into sections and blogging about them. Who knows how long this will take so I won’t be setting a date to be finished by! I’ll also be reading the last two books for the first time!
Reliving the moments in the 20th anniversary and hearing about them from the cast was a special way to celebrate 20 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long! Here’s to starting off 2022 by reliving some of my favorite moments in one of my favorite book series and finding new moments along the way.
