Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets


I loved Chamber of Secrets. For a very long time, I told people it was my favourite of all the Potter books. This is for many reasons, one of which is that it gives me a thoroughly enjoyable scare every time I read it. I found some sections of the book terrifying; it’s amazing how Rowling manages to evoke that sense of fear with the merest whisper of a suggestion. What is most amazing is that, despite the fact that I know what’s coming, I get frightened anew every time I read the book. Rowling is just that good at what she does.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone


I have alot going on this month, and I am taking my sweet time reading books this year, so finishing a book is taking longer than it did the past two years. But I finally re-read Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone after so many years, and let me tell you, I actually hugged the book afterwards. I hesitated in writing this review because what could I say that hasn’t already been said? But my mind’s been stuck on Harry Potter, and I just had to let it out. So here we are.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard


The Harry Potter series┬áis what started my love affair for books. I love it so much that I have read books 1, 2, 5, 6, and twice 7 and books 3 and 4 thrice. I acquired The Tales of Beedle the Bard back when I was still longing for more Harry Potter’s magical world. I was looking for something to re-read so I grabbed this off my shelf.

Quidditch Through the Ages


Naturally, I couldn’t leave it behind – anything remotely to do with Harry Potter becomes an obsession of mine – and it now takes pride of place next to the Harry Potter series on my bookshelf. This teensy 100-page book was one of the two books that Joanne wrote in aid of Comic Relief, the second of which is now a blockbuster film! It’s basically a fictional non-fiction work featuring everything you wish to know about Quidditch. Personally, I wish that she should write up every single book that is ever mentioned in the books, but alas! That has not yet happened. Continue reading “Quidditch Through the Ages”

Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone


This is around the sixth or seventh time that I’ve read the Harry Potter series. Let me tell you right now, I don’t read books six or seven times. Of course Harry Potter isn’t a 5/5 star – books. I’d say it’s close to 500/5. Continue reading “Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone”

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


It is finally time for to review a new Harry Potter story and that feel amazing. What doesn’t feel amazing is that my thoughts are so conflicted, I finished reading this play and immediately stamped 5.5 on my Goodreads review. It wasn’t that I loved the story, it was that I loved being transported back to a world I love, to characters I adore so much and to experience that magic once again. I had tears in my eyes whilst finishing this book because it brought back all those nostalgic feelings. The problem was that the story wasn’t good as I had hoped and the more I think about the book, the less happy with it I get. It’s currently on a 3/5 with the potential to go lower if I dwell on it anymore. So, no more dwelling, time for reviewing. And don’t worry, if you haven’t read the book yet then I won’t spoil it, I will keep this part completely non-spoilery and have the spoilers after a massive warning, for all those who have read it.
