Potter-Thon Update! (And review)

It is already the 19th of January, and I have only just finished the first book in the Harry Potter series.  I had surgery last week, so that slowed me up.  Either way, I finally read a Harry Potter book!!  And I'll do a short review of it now, before I forget.

This book has been reviewed a zillion times, so my review may not hold any weight.  I will, however, still share my opinion.

It's no secret that J.K. Rowling hit the jackpot when the idea for Harry Potter took over her brain.  She has successfully crafted a series of stories that have enchanted all ages for over a decade.  I can now include myself in this group!  Of course I have already seen all the movies, but as it is with most movies made from books, the written word prevails.

J.K.'s words are creative, humorous, and full of emotion.  She expertly describes the world from her mind so that all who read can experience it for themselves.

I finally started reading the book for a reading challenge over at Pure Imagination, but will finish the series because of J.K Rowling's fantastic writing.  She made me care about the characters, and I must see then through to the end.

To all who haven't read Harry Potter, (however few that may be), get to it!  You really are missing out.

More updates for the Potter-Thon soon, as I'm starting The Chamber of Secrets in a few minutes!


  1. Agreed, it's fantastic! I finished the last book in about 2 days, staying up until about 2:30 in the morning to finish it, and I balled like a baby. It's incredible.

    Hope your surgery went well :)

  2. I, of course, agree! :)

    Thanks for participating in the Potter-Thon!
