Your're a wizard Harry!

Is anybody else gutted that Harry Potter is coming to an end?

I am! I am going to see the last instalment tonight and a part of me does not want to go because by not going it would not have ended to me yet. If that makes sense. 

When my parents were younger The Secret Seven and The Famous Five were like their version of Harry Potter. They grew up reading the books and loved them. They still mention them to this day. FYI - The Secret Seven is a good series, not a massive fan of The Famous Five. In 2001 my Dad told me to read Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone. Since then I was hooked and I still am. I have read the whole series 3 times and I don't feel I can ever get bored.

Some of my friends have just seen the films and not read the books. They're missing out, I tell them all the time. In fact, I can't see a film based on a book without reading it. It almost feels unfair to the author to do that. 

The films have never been as good as the books but I loved how they have been made. When the books ended, it was the fact the films were still being made kept the Harry Potter magic alive!

The Harry Potter series has been my companion on holiday, plane journeys, massive late night reading sessions where I would just say to myself "one more chapter won't hurt", in my breaks at school/work and in my garden. J.K Rowling is an amazing author and I really hope she keeps her penmanship going. My favourite book was Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. It was where the story got a lot more interesting and darker. I also loved Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which have been my favourite films so far!

I really wish it wasn't coming to end but I'm pleased I grew up in the Harry Potter era. It has been and always will be one of the greatest series ever written to me.

My popcorn, tissues and diet coke are ready.

Are you ready for Potter-mania to end?

I never understood Harry Potter; I think if I tried hard enough, I could get into it, but quite frankly, I don't care enough to do so lol! However, I understand why you love it so much...I'm the same way with Twilight ;)

I feel the exaaact same way. I grew up with it... It was a place to escape to in those stupid teenage years. People who haven't read the books just don't completely get it.

Of course this film wasn't perfect, but it was great nonetheless. I hope you enjoy it!!
