I'm starting this challenge today, and since there's 31 days in January, I'll just post the first prompt today. One of my favorite series is Harry Potter, and my favorite book is Half Blood Prince. I think it's also the first HP book I listened to on audiobook, which introduced me to the magic of Jim Dale. I listened to it a lot, and it got me through a rough time in my life.

wanderinglynn What a cool challenge! 👍🏻💙 3w
Scochrane26 HBP was the first HP book that I got when it was released. I didn‘t start reading them until after the 5th one. 3w
Kimmypete1 Thanks! Looking for something to keep up the momentum lol. 2w

I managed to do some #audiobaking! This cake is for my aunt and uncle‘s “Suck It, Grandma!” Christmas Eve party. Once a year or so, we all get together and eat stuff she refused to touch, like Chinese food and chocolate cake. I went with Nigella‘s chocolate fudge cake, done as a 3-layer instead of the 2-layer specified in the recipe, and I think I‘m gonna frost it with sour cream chocolate icing. I‘ll decide closer to the date.

MandaMT This is the most original way to honor someone I‘ve ever heard of. Sounds like a fun way to share memories. I love it. 2mo
BlameJennyJane Um... yum!! And cool tradition! 2mo
Emilymdxn Oh my word that sounds fantastic! What book is the recipe in?? I need to make that cake ASAP 2mo

xicanti @MandaMT @BlameJennyJane last year we did it for her birthday! 2mo
xicanti @Emilymdxn the cake is from NIGELLA BITES and the sour cream chocolate icing is from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS. There‘s an official fudge icing in NB, but I love the sour cream icing so much that I want to run with it. Plus, the fudge cake and the sour cream cake have similar ingredients in slightly different proportions, so I figure it‘ll be a good fit. 2mo

I had a use-stuff-up special for supper tonight: Tom Yum soup liberally spiked with dipping fish sauce and seeded with noodles, mushrooms, kale, tomato, green onion, and turkey.

Between cooking and dishes, I‘ve made a pretty good start on HPB. I still find that I‘m really, really excited about rereading these later books. I‘m gonna be sad when I finish the series. #audiocooking

Kimberlone Yum! I made chicken noodle soup for dinner tonight. We got our first big snow in my neck of the woods today, so it felt appropriate! 2mo
Kimberlone Also, book 4-7 still make me cry all these years later. I did a listen of the whole series for the first time this year and it was such a great experience! 2mo
xicanti @Kimberlone I‘ve had SUCH an amazing time listening to them! This is my first reread in seven years, too, so it felt appropriate to shake things up this way. 2mo

Before I start, shout out to my Fortnite-obsessed kiddo for setting up this photo. He really wanted to included his Harry Potter Fortnite skin in the pic.

I had a (brief) departure from my Harry Potter re-read but am now back at it with J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This feels SO much as just a lead-in to the grand finale that in some ways, assessing Half-Blood Prince on its own merits is difficult. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod On the whole, though, I did find it to be satisfying. Rowling does a good job establishing Ginny (for the first time!) as a strong character and future partner for Harry. The romance between Ron and Hermione is satisfying . . . and Lavendar is sufficiently annoying. Harry's dual obsessions with Draco and Snape prove both to be true (kind of) and unbearable, while the ongoing relationship with Dumbledore, which deepens here, is both SUCH ⬇️ 2mo
UnabridgedPod a great addition to the novel AND quite puzzling.
(Read Rainbow Rowell's take on this--what is UP with some of what Dumbledore chooses *not* to tell Harry!?!) This is a perfect penultimate story, leading right in to Death Hallows.⠀

As for the movie . . . it's solid. Jim Broadbent as Slughorn is brilliant, and I love watching the young actors develop into these familiar, well-loved roles. ⬇️
2mo
UnabridgedPod It's great. Alan Rickman as Snape is my ABSOLUTE favorite. And that conclusion is just gorgeous. Dumbledore!! 2mo
TheAromaofBooks I love getting back stories and history, so weirdly this may be my favorite book in the series. Learning what shaped Voldemort and how he became who/what he is, was actually something I really enjoyed. 2mo
UnabridgedPod @TheAromaofBooks What a great perspective!! 2mo

Most of you guys know I‘m a knitter....and most would guess I‘m crazy about Potter but....last night I got to combine my two loves when I made these knitting stitch markers. I got the idea from Etsy....someone was selling the same thing for 50$. I made mine from under 20$ ;). I am going to order that sellers Doctor Who stuff though. #knitter #happiness #potterhead #Potterverse

#2 When young Harry Potter ventures into his second last year at Hogwarts he suspects that something strange is going on. He is also convinced the Draco Malfoy, his enemy in his very own year, bares Voldemorts dark mark. Is Harry going to win? Find out by reading this book as Harry prepares to face what lies ahead. If you like books that have suspense then this is your book. I also think that this book was a fast read because I really enjoyed it.

Cfischbuch These books are truly full of suspense. Edge of your seat reading. 3mo

“But for heaven's sake — you're wizards! You can do magic!“
Scrimgeour turned slowly on the spot and exchanged an incredulous look with Fudge, who really did manage a smile this time as he said kindly, “The trouble is, the other side can do magic too, Prime Minister.”
(I can't be the only person who thinks of sci-fi/fantasy world connections while reading every assigned text for my classes, can I?)

Oh my. I know why I hate getting to this book. It‘s such a sad read. Love my HP ..strange watching/hearing/reading as the characters go through their growing pains... I‘m going to try to re-read the last book but the 1st time through was heartbreaking.

I can't help it. Now, when I'm reading HP that isnt in illustrated format, in the back of my head I'm trying to wish it into my existence at that very moment.

I know it's the words that make the story...im just so in love with the illustrated editions that I wish wish wish they were all released already for me to Ohhh and Ahhh over.

Still loving the story though. I'm just sayin is all. 🤷‍♂️

FINALLY finished my reread. Life just got in the way of finishing in a time frame that I wanted. These books never get old and I always notice something new with each reread. HP has my heart! Love the series. I will say that the action doesn‘t really happen in this book until the last few chapters. Everything before it gets a bit repetitive at times.

Every year as soon as September hits I fall into Harry Potter again.

I always wonder if this is the year that I'll pass on my re-read of Harry & friends and use that precious time for other unread books instead.

Whelp. Guess this isn't that year. No planned reading order this time. Just gonna go with the flow and read 'em (or listen) as the mood strikes me.

Half Blood Prince is first up. 🤘

I know I‘m obviously like 25 years behind the curve. However, this is my first time reading beyond the 1st book of the HP series, or I should say listening to the HP series. Audiobooks are my new addiction and I‘m so happy I waited a few weeks so I could join the potter-heads! I have screamed and laughed out loud in my car and I look forward to my daily commute. 2 weeks until I wrap up the series with the Deathly Hallows- I cant wait!
