When I was a child, I first discovered the Harry Potter books. I was instantly entranced by the world of witchcraft and wizardry and I was obsessed. I read books one through three quickly, and waited all day for book four to be delivered. For me, book five was a huge disappointment, book six had me feeling indifferent and I never read seven. Well, that’s all changed now. After seeing the movies I decided to re-read the books only my own copies, the white covers from the UK. In the last six or so months, I’ve read all seven books. Books one through three made me remember what it was like to read when I was in grade seven and eight. Book four was as captivating as ever and strange enough I could see the magic in book five. I read book six eagerly and now finished with book seven I can see how great the series truly is. Reading it in succession makes you see the plot points that were scattered throughout. I could see where the story was going and I am amazed at the depth and the beauty of it. As a writer myself I can only hope one day to create a book or series as brilliant as this. But until then, I’ve got these books to read and enjoy over and over again.
