Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Part 2

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I simply cannot get enough of The Estella Society sponsored Potter Binge. Honestly, I’ve had so many great conversations with real life friends and coworkers as well as with the internet that I just want to bring y’all over for a nice warm butterbeer and some treacle tart. Except, I’ve never had treacle tart so I’m not sure I’d like it. I could make you apple crisp…. Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Part 1

Happy New Year, Bookworms! I thought about kicking off the new year with a big old list of resolutions or something, but who are we kidding? I would break every last one of those resolutions and then feel worse about it because I’d announced them to the world. Why should I put myself under that kind of pressure, I ask you? I’ve decided to stick to what makes me happy,… Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix: Part 1

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Part 2

Greetings Bookworms! I know it’s been a full week since my last post. I am seriously burning the candle at both ends. The holidays, you guys. They are fun and exhausting in equal measure. So much living to cram into such a short amount of time. It’s times like these I could reeeeally use a time turner. Or the ability to apparate. Man, apparating would make everything so much more… Read more »

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire: Part 1

Hello my Darling Bookworms! We’ve reached the midpoint in the glorious Harry Potter Re-Readalong with The Estella Society. I’m working my way through Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. Now.

Thoughts on Revisiting Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets

Great Maggoty Haggis, Bookworms! I’m trying to work that phrase into my lexicon because I like coming up with alternatives to swearing. Not that I have a problem with profanity, because I don’t, I just prefer my language to be a bit more colorful. The Harry Potter books never fail to supply me with entertaining phrases. Which brings me to the point! I’m still trucking along with The Estella Society’s… Read more »

Thoughts On Revisiting Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Happy Monday Bookworms! I know, I know. It sucks to start a brand new work week or school week or whatever. Heck, I’ve got a Monday fever, and the only cure is HARRY POTTER. I’ve been blogging for over 3 years and have talked about Harry and the gang plenty, but I’ve never done any sort of official review of the books. When some of my favorite bloggers at The… Read more »
