Finally Finished. Just like Harry's Quest. My husband and I decided to reread all 7 books together in 2020. We had barely made it into the Prisoner of Azkaban and the read along was put on hold. I LOVED these books as a kid and as an adult I'll always love Harry Potter and wish that Hogwarts was a real place.

"Let's all go to bed and pray we don't wake up," --Moira Rose portrayed by Catherine O'Hara on Schitt's Creek One of my favorite TV moms of late.

Oh the palpable excitement I experienced as I impatiently waited for each of these books to come out! Reading them again as an adult, I don't have that same "feeling;" in fact I find more to criticize, such as, how many times and different ways can she tell us that Poor Slughorn was portly?! ?. "His belly proceeded him" "he lingered at the Great Hall during meal times" we get it the man was FAT

We recently did some damage at the Book Loft in Columbus, OH (not the tagged bookstore, couldn't find it). If you ever get the chance highly recommend! It is a literal labyrinth -- 32 rooms full of books, puzzles, totes, bookish gifts, AMAZING! They have a map at the entrance and regardless everyone was still getting lost 😅

TheAromaofBooks I usually just go to the Book Loft. German Village has become very trendy so I know the restaurants there can definitely get crazy!! I haven't been in a while, but there used to be a lot of fun places to eat in the Short North as well, which is too far to walk but still fairly close to German Village. 2mo

We went and saw the Marvel Exhibit at Cosi today! Fun fact I learned, after WW2 there was a "war on comics," apparently it was so bad it almost ended the genre entirely. They were considered "morally corrupt " for words and concepts such as "terror" and "horror." Sheesh don't they know that's the good stuff?!

Finished this up a few days ago as my fiance and I continue our re'read. Umbridge is such a "good" villain, disguising her evil and prejudices under a cloak of pink and kittens-- with a voice that makes you want to stab yourself in the eye with a quill, a most dangerous type and not unrealistic! The most disappointing part of this book was and still is the fated prophecy at the end. Luna shows up finally yay!

LiteraryinLawrence Thanks for posting more options- you have so many great choices! I have read Time Traveler‘s Wife and The Other Einstein and would prefer to read something new ideally. I‘m fine with any of the others and my top picks would probably be The Snow Child, The Water Cure or The Power. 3mo
Kayla.Adriena @LiteraryinLawrence I agree, I want to choose something no one has read 3mo
BennettBookworm Awesome choices! Top pick would be Snow Child or boys in the boat. Already read time traveler‘s wife and the power (two all time favorites so you should def read them!). Fine with anything else tho! 3mo
shellleigh33 I don‘t want anyone to have to read anything again so my picks are The Snow Child or The Water Cure. I also agree you have to read The Time Traveler‘s Wife, it is one of my favorites 3mo
Kayla.Adriena @LiteraryinLawrence @BennettBookworm @shellleigh33 the Snow Child it is ❄. Also I'd like to pick dark blue for my pen color if that's okay with everyone 3mo

During 2020 my partner and I had planned to reread all the HP books together, we made it to book 3 which I never officially finished because well I pretty much took a reading hiatus that year plus I was pregnant and could not stay awake to read ! We decided to start it back up again and I FINALLY finished Prisoner of Azkaban. It was always my favorite book of the series because as a kid my mind was blown at the plot twist 🤯.

Kayla.Adriena Although we are disappointed in JK Rowling.. these books had a profound impact and great influence on our reading lives as children. We plan to continue the tradition of sharing them with our daughter 4mo
