Tag: JK Rowling
This seemed like fun, so I stole it from HiddenStaircase. It’s rather self explanatory. Author You’ve Read The Most Books From Either Janet Evanovich or Sandra Brown. Don’t judge me. I am a voracious reader of all sorts. Best Sequel Ever A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs. Though technically not a sequel, it was the second book of his that I read about…
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
For years I have heard it said, but now I know it to be true: JK Rowling is brilliant. Masterful, even. I thought I knew the story. I was wrong. I am so very glad I was. Finally, the last for no. 20 on my challenge. I kind of feel like there’s nothing left to read…
Here we go
The beginning of the end.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
“And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” —Dumbledore My favourite quote from my favourite character from my favourite Harry Potter book (which happens to have my favourite cover illustration). Dumbledore, I’ll miss you. No. 20 on my book challenge. Almost there.
We know you’re tall. … So does Hermione.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
I’m not going to lie; I really want to peruse Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes. Not my favourite of the series—this one was a bit long—but still incredible (obviously). No. 20 on my challenge. Can’t stop.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
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. Another for No. 20 on my challenge.
This is what’s known as creative license
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…
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
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.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
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. Another for No. 20 on my challenge.
