1. As I still have to read some books of The vampires chronicles, I have to answer with Harry Potter 😅🤣
2. Not always, it depends
3. It doesn't matter, also in this case depends mostly by the series itself

Just finished book 2 for my rogue #potteraday. Looking forward to starting book 3 tomorrow. Fun fact: this was actually the first Harry Potter book I read, then I went back to read 1 and then 3-7.

It has been wonderful listening to the audio of the Harry Potter series. Its been years since I have read them. Still a great read.

August 6/20 #LitsyLove #doublespin @TheAromaOfBooks

TheAromaofBooks I've been collecting the Hufflepuff editions, which are also British editions, so I'm looking forward to reading the not-American ones sometime soon!! 2y
BayouGirl85 @TheAromaofBooks interesting. I may need to check those out. 2y
TheAromaofBooks I've been getting them through Book Depository. I'm not sure if the entire series is out yet or not, but there are sets for each house in house colors, and there is extra info about the house or important members of it in each book. My sister has been collecting the Slytherin ones so we've been able to compare as we get them!! 2y

Book 3 done! This is my second favorite out of all the HP books, and I still feel strongly about it. This book just proves to me why I love this series so much.

Finished the tagged book while #audiopuzzling - this is the second time I‘ve listened to these books on audio. Now to wait 6 months for the next one. I should really just buy the audiobooks...

Anyway, I‘ve had this puzzle for 4 years and would start it and then break it up and put it away. I‘m so glad I finally finished it! Hardest puzzle I‘ve ever done 😹

"When it doubt, go to the library, that's what Hermione does", said Ron to HP when he asked why she went to the library. Another of my favorite phrases in this book is "It is our choices that show what you truly are, far more than our abilities", said by Dumbledore to HP to explain why he is in Gryffindor & not in Slytherin and what makes him different from Riddle. I like how friendship, loyalty were developed.Myrtle's story us so sad & morbid

“It is our choices Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” - Albus Dumbledore

The second installment in the much beloved Harry Potter series, this starts off where book one ends, with Harry and his friends starting their second year at Hogwarts. While I love all of the character in this series, Dumbledore is my favorite. I just love his wisdom and the magical world of Hogwarts is truly spectacular.

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 🏝

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!! 👏👏👏👍👍👍 6y
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 6y
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. :) 6y
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. 6y
Cinfhen 😂😂😂😂I don't get it either but obviously the masses do! 6y
BethM I think it has a lot to do with your preferred genre and the point in life that they came to you. 6y
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) 6y
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. 6y
Yossarian @Rachael_reads Maybe the next time I'm 12 years old I'll try them again. 6y
Rachael_reads @Yossarian 😂😂😂😂😂😂 exactly 6y
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 😁 6y
Yossarian @josie Punishing myself for the length of a book can be "fun." Punishing myself for a full 7-book series is just Masochism. 6y
Josie @Yossarian agreed. No one has time for that. 6y
DieAReader 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. 6y
RowReads1 This was my least favorite of all the books. 6y
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. 6y
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) 6y
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. 6y
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. 6y
[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) 6y
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... 6y
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) 6y
