The Harry Potter Series (Review)
It took me a VERY long time until I finally sat down and read these books! I'm ashamed to say I just finished the books last August. I've kept up with the movies and now I have a comparison to finally make. I know the book is always better than the movie, but I was shocked at how much content was left out of the films. The movies are still incredible, but nothing compares to the books. J.K. Rowling has a lovely imagination that captivates the reader of these books. She created Quiddich! I was hooked into Harry's world while reading these books, and even had a few Harry Potter dreams. I couldn't have been more heartbroken to finish these books, and the fact that I won't be visiting Hogwarts any time soon. I remember reading these books late into the night, and texting my friend Amanda about how much the movies left out. I'm sure she loved the 1,2, and 3 am texts about Harry Potter! If ever I were able to visit an imaginary place, Hogwarts would be at the top of my list. The fourth book was my favorite because of the Tri-Wizard's Tournament. Every book never failed to have an out of this world adventure in store for Harry, Ron, and Hermione. I was so afraid that a major character would die in the last book, but I finished the series pretty satisfied with the results. Do I think the stories could and should continue? DEFINITELY!
