I got this Moaning Myrtle terrarium to commemorate my #LeakyCon adventure. I won't get into detail, but because of my IC, there was a portable toilet along for the ride, so this was perfect. We had a blast!

1. I like the ”Harry Potter” movies better than the books. 😱 While I recognize the significant contribution JK Rowling has made in creating lifelong readers, & while I admire her world-building skills, I‘m not a fan of her writing style. I‘ve never finished the series. 🤷‍♀️
2. Sweet! 🍪
3. I was closest with Alice & Rudolph. 💕
4. “The NeverEnding Story” 🐲, “Ferngully” 🧚🏻‍♀️🦇 & “Casper” 👻
5. With limited time? Key West 🏝

theresidentromantic I respect what it took to put thatout there! I love the books, but there are more issues the longer you look at them, unfortunately. 8mo

Bailedbailed

For those of you playing along at home, I bailed on my #hpchapteraday about two weeks ago. The books were just too horrible to waste any more time. Fat jokes and slave jokes, on top of trite caricatures and ridiculous deus ex machinae ("Oops! While trying to stop Snape I accidentally tripped and knocked over the real bad guy!")

Maybe they get "better" later on, but from a very low base. I wonder how a second and third book even got approved.

shawnmooney Good for you!! 👏👏👏👍👍👍 3y
Yossarian And judging from the fact that everyone is posting today about a Chapter called "Flight of the Fat Lady," it hasn't improved yet. @shawnmooney 3y
See All 23 Comments
Rachael_reads I also bailed on this book. I just couldn't get interested in it. I heard the later books are better, but I'm not sure I want to try to read HP anytime soon. PS... I'm glad I'm not the only one who bailed. :) 3y
Yossarian @Rachael_reads I wonder if the people who praise the later books are a self-selected biased sample of people who could make it through the first three. Everyone who would pan the fourth book had already stopped reading by then. 3y
Cinfhen 😂😂😂😂I don't get it either but obviously the masses do! 3y
BethM I think it has a lot to do with your preferred genre and the point in life that they came to you. 3y
Reecaspieces I get exactly what y'all are saying...however, I absolutely love the creativity...muggles and flying cars and owl posts. I think the creativity is amazing. @BethM you nailed it as well. Sometimes you just need something different, less serious, and out of your comfort zone. I highly dislike fantasy. These are the only fantasy books I could ever read..the creativity gets me every time. (edited) 3y
Rachael_reads @Yossarian Yes!! Good point. I have the whole set of books. I'll keep them, maybe my kids will enjoy them at some point. Others have also told me that maybe I'd like them better if I read them at a younger age (I'm 35). That may be true, who knows. 3y
Yossarian @Rachael_reads Maybe the next time I'm 12 years old I'll try them again. 3y
Rachael_reads @Yossarian 😂😂😂😂😂😂 exactly 3y
Josie Your honesty is so refreshing. I read them when they were first released and I was 8! I'm not following the chapter a day, but I did reread the first two recently and I have a feeling that if it was my first time reading, I would have bailed. So, I get it. I wish you would keep reading them because your commentary is hilarious. But don't punish yourself for us 😁 3y
Yossarian @josie Punishing myself for the length of a book can be "fun." Punishing myself for a full 7-book series is just Masochism. 3y
Josie @Yossarian agreed. No one has time for that. 3y
SquidgetsRoom I've never read any of them and frankly do t know what the appeal is. IMO I liked the movies that I did see, but I can't see myself wasting my time on 7 books when I have close to 800 sitting in my computer room waiting to be read. 3y
RowReads1 This was my least favorite of all the books. 3y
mcausten_sister My dudes, it is a book series for children. I dont know what you all were expecting but it is not sophisticated or high brow lit and y'all are talkin like it's meant to be. 3y
Whatannareads @Yossarian your honesty is refreshing, however I do enjoy their series, wow you are only 12? I've just liked you post about Philip Pullman and his Dark materials trilogy, what age did you go to college?!? X (edited) 3y
Yossarian @mcausten_sister I agree. But when I say, "It's a book series for children" everyone says, "No, it's for everyone!" and they start #hpchapteraday groups where a bunch of grown ups read Harry Potter. So I try to read them as an adult, but when I criticize it, I get the response, "It's just a kids' book!" But if adults can't hold it to adult standards, then maybe they should be leaving it for the kids. 3y
Yossarian @Bookishlychaot1c No, I'm 42, and next year I'll be 43. I haven't checked every number after that, but the law of probability says that at least one of them is going to be 12. 3y
[DELETED] 57804897 I dislike them as well. I love fantasy and long books, and I think they're boring. I agree about the jokes—fat people are the last people it's socially OK to make fun of. I honestly don't remember the slave jokes, but it's been since they first came out, and I didn't finish the series. (edited) 3y
Laalaleighh Just to present a redeeming argument for the series as a whole- they've done a study that shows reading Harry Potter makes kids more empathetic. The books grow in complexity with the readers age- im from the HP generation and almost my entire moral compass comes from those books. Which yes, start out childish but delve into incredibly deep themes. There's also this: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.theatlantic.com/amp/article/492245/?client=safa... 3y
nandana I bailed after book 1 as well when they first came out years ago. The-One trope doesn't particularly interest me. Very interesting point about readers self-selecting toward the end of a series - I'd just noticed that about Neapolitan novels (which I think are excellent anyway) 3y

Ch.10- The Rogue Bludger #complaining

Harry starts out complaining of Professor Lockhart using him for reenactments of his books in class. Little does he know, that there is much more to complain about Lockhart forthcoming! During The Quidditch match, Harry is attacked by a bludger and his arm is broken! Despite Harry's complaints, Lockhart uses magic to heal him and as usual, that doesn't work! #hpchapteraday

@hpchapteraday #hpchapteraday #waitingonmyletter. Lots of complaining in this chapter. However, there were places the characters could have complained but didn't. Like Harry when the bludger was after him. He insisted on playing instead of complaining and quitting.

Redjewel_7734 We appreciate all you do organizing and keeping this going! I'm so enjoying all the insights & dialogue about these themes within the best series out there! 3y
Redjewel_7734 I feel the confusion in this chapter in Harry & Hermione trying to figure out the meaning behind Draco's slur. This underscores to me how much they still have to learn; yes they've been part of the wizarding world for over a year, but there are still a lot of ins & outs for them to navigate & figure out. 3y

Reecaspieces Oh and Harry being bewildered about early quidditch practice.....and then malfoy at quidditch practice.... 3y
monkeygirlsmama Don't even think about it, @steverogers! You're doing great and we appreciate it. 😗 3y
monkeygirlsmama For the topic of confusion you need look no further than the very start of this chapter. Harry is confused by Wood's impromptu early morning wake up call. Everyone on the Quidditch team is confused by what he's trying to explain to them because it's complicated and they're all half asleep or falling asleep.😴 Harry and Hermione are confused by Malfoy's obviously rude comment, but they don't have enough experience to know the derogatory meaning. 3y
monkeygirlsmama When Ron tries to put a curse on Malfoy, for his cruel words against Hermione, Ron's broken wand gets the direction of the spell confused causing Ron to be the recipient of the hex instead. And later Harry is confused by the evil voice he'd swear he heard in Lockhart's study. Lockhart says he didn't hear anything, but Harry is certain he heard whispers and is confused about where the voice came from. 3y
Kat.Kao Harry is not back into his routine yet--everything about his second year so far has been confusing, from being blocked from the train to his weird fan club to the mysterious voice. 3y
mllemay All of the above! Plus Colin is confused about Quidditch. And also about how to have normal and pleasant interactions with other human beings - he needs to tone that sh*t down lol 3y
SandyY15 @hpchapteraday Thank you for doing this for us! I am truly enjoying it, but it's a very daunting task for you to do this everyday for a year!! Can I ask how some others knew the theme before you put it up? I'd like to be able to work ahead when I know things will be coming up. (Like right now when I'm wide awake at 2:38 AM! 🙄) 3y
Whatannareads No worries Hun, I appreciate it's an epic task! I myself usually not to good at consistency with these things but so far so good 😊. And we are all loving it x 3y
janeycanuck @SandyY15 I think it's because of the Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast. Each episode looks at a chapter through a theme. They are only on book 2 right now but if I recall, the themes are initially coming from this podcast. I'm finding it really enjoyable to read the chapter and then listen to the corresponding episode. 3y
SandyY15 Thank you, @janeycanuck ! I didn't know about the podcast. I will have to check that out! 3y

1/26 CH 6 - Attraction
This chapter mostly involved drawing attraction to ones self. Lockhart believed he had made Harry want to attract attention to his fame. Hermione was attracted to being right and intelligent. Ron's wand attracted attention as well after it was broken.
