My review / My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Harry Potter … No matter if you are a reader or not it is impossible that you haven’t heard of this story. You probably saw the movies, or maybe seen it on TV and you just switched channels. But you know about it, that is for sure.I was one of those that never watched the movies and I never felt an interest towards the books either. I just had this idea that I will not like the story and that I might just lose my time. But ohhh, how wrong I was. One day I asked my kids to bring me the first book from the library.
My idea was to read the book with them and to watch the movie right after. They were not really interested in my plans 😀 . So, I continued reading the book by myself. I was hooked from the beginning. I don’t know how I ever thought that I might not like the story. It is simply great! It makes you want to be part of that world; it makes you want to start magic. 😊Once I finished the book, I watched the first movie with my kids and they loved it! Now they want to know what happens next. Therefore, I am waiting in the mail the first three books…because a reader can read a book from the local library, but nothing compares to the feeling of owning the copies of books that you love. 😊
Thanks for reading!
