Okay…it’s time for a bookish related confession. If you’ve followed the blog then this won’t come as a surprise, but then maybe it will. Are you ready?
When people ask me my thoughts about Harry Potter I always say I have nothing to say. Why? Because I’ve never read the books and haven’t seen the films. When I started to blog, I decided that needed to change. I know as a book blogger you can’t read every book out there (not ever reading Twilight), but it just seems that this is one series I needed to tackle.
What I do know:
• Harry lives with his aunt and uncle
• Hogwarts is the school where Harry ends up going
• Sorting hats (the term is all I know)
• Death of X (not saying who it is)
Why I’ve resisted:
• Popularity (not one to read what everyone is reading)
• It’s for KIDS (my number one argument that at my age why should I bother)
• No real interest
I know a lot of bloggers live tweet as they read, but I’m going to do things differently. I’m going to tackle each book in two parts (or three depending on the size of the book) and post here my thoughts on each part. It makes it easier to keep track of my progress and gives you the opportunity to come and check in when you have a chance and of course let me know your thoughts! Although on occasion I’ll tweet using the hashtag #HogwartsNewbie.
Unlike other bloggers who have tackled Harry Potter for the first time I’m doing this on my own and I’ll have a lot of questions and hopefully you’ll walk me through this journey.
