It all started with a children's book entitled Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I would not even gave it a second glance had not my English teacher sister highly recommend it. At that time, I was..em..are you sure? Aren't we too old to read this kind of stuff? Both of us adored Enid Blyton books when we were young but at the time Harry Potter was published, I was in the university and my sister is already working.
But, I always trust my sister's judgment of books since we were young and decided to give it a try. And truth to be told, she was right! It was amazing! The whole series is incredible! Although it went darker and darker it's still the most brilliant book series I have ever come across. I don't even give a damn when my friends made fun of me for reading it. Even my ex-bf in the university (well one of my exes) laughed at me when I was all over it at a bookstore during one of our dates. And suffice to say, probably that's why I dump him. I really hated it when a guy makes fun of my love/obsession/addiction to books. Sheesh...get a life will you?
While watching the last Harry Potter movie, I literally had tears in my eyes. It just so sad to be saying goodbyes to these characters that I've grown to like for the past what? 10 years? There will be other books but I must say the Potter series has a dear place in my heart.
