Wow. Just… wow. At first I thought, “SIX HUNDRED PAGES?!” Now I’m like, “Obviously. Six hundred pages. Totally makes sense.” SUCH a good read. Already reaching for Order of the Phoenix.
As you know, I’m reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I noticed this:
Professor Dumbledore was now looking down at Harry, who looked right back at him, trying to discern the expression of the eyes behind the half-moon spectacles.
“Did you put your name into the Goblet of Fire, Harry?” Dumbledore asked calmly.
But then I thought back to the movie. Dumbledore doesn’t seem too calm.
And I thought I was so clever, too, until I came across this while searching for this gif. Whatever, I’m still clever.
And I thought Professor Snape was mean in the movies. He’s significantly worse in the books. Alan Rickman was very well cast.
I love these books.
No. 20 on my challenge. Still going.
I spent this afternoon traipsing around to all the bookstores in town so I could find Prisoner of Azkaban. Smart lady that I am, I picked up Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows when and where I found them, so it looks like Ms. Flavia de Luce is going to have to wait. Harry Potter, here I come.
I actually think it was better that I saw the movies before reading the books—I know the story well, but I’m still discovering so much. Again, I wish I’d just bought the boxed set.
I should have read these years ago. Phenomenal. I wish I’d bought the boxed set. Also, how great is the new Bloomsbury design?!
No. 20 on my challenge. Everyone has read the first Harry Potter.
And obviously, the movies are awesome.
