My favourite quote from any of the books I have read is: “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” I found this quote to be really helpful during the early days of the Covid 19 pandemic about 2 years ago. #littenswanttoknow
A fun reread of my favorite Harry Potter book 😻

LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN THE DONATION PILE AT EORK YESTERDAY! 😱💕📚 It's a UK edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! The dust jacket it not in the best shape; it has a few creases and a tiny tear bear the top, but other than that it's in pretty good condition! I am excited to add it to my collection! 🥰
Here I will note 365 books (or as many as I will have before I get tired) that have shaped my taste in literature. No explanations, no reviews. Just the cover of the book.
I do not challenge anyone. You are all welcome to take part.
I am doing a reread of the series. The 3rd book is my favorite. To me it‘s the first book that really gives up information about the characters pasts as well as set up for the the future books. It is the most surprising if you‘re a first time reader. This one peaked my interest most consistently of all the books.
#BookReport - Finished 4 books this week. All were really good. I‘m currently rereading my way through the HP books.
#CurrentlyReading - The Verifiers (struggling a bit to get into it). HP on audio and History of Wild Places. Only about 60 pages into it, so not sure yet.
#WeeklyForecast - Not sure how exhausted I‘ll be after work yet, so keeping it simple. A River enchanted is my #DoubleSpin book.
I listen to HP before bed to quiet my mind as I fall asleep. But my anxiety has been bananas lately so I decided on my commute and my lunch work out I‘d just continue. Especially bc it‘s my favorite book! Nothing better than the comforting hug of old friends!
This was a re-read, but I hadn't read it in at least 7 years. There's so much that I didn't remember, such as how truly horrible Snape is to the trio. I loved all of Harry's interactions with Lupin and his uses of the Patronus charm. I also enjoyed all of the quidditch matches. I wish the movies had more quidditch. I ended up reading most of this book over the last week which is pretty quick for me lately. Now onto GoF!
I really enjoyed this book! The beginning was a bit slow for me (as was the movie), but by the middle I didn‘t want to put it down. I loved getting more of an insight into James Potter and Snapes backstory, along with the role Crookshanks played throughout. However, Ron did make me so mad with the way he was acting towards Hermione the entire time! I was mostly happy to read a more in-depth ending when they are in the shrieking shack!
How dare you speak to Harry!
How dare you talk about James in front of him!
You sold James and Lily to Voldemort, didn't you?
I didn't mean to! The Dark Lord. You have no idea the weapons he possesses! Ask yourself, Sirius! What would you've done? What would you've done?
I would have died!
I would have died rather than betray my friends!
During 2020 my partner and I had planned to reread all the HP books together, we made it to book 3 which I never officially finished because well I pretty much took a reading hiatus that year plus I was pregnant and could not stay awake to read ! We decided to start it back up again and I FINALLY finished Prisoner of Azkaban. It was always my favorite book of the series because as a kid my mind was blown at the plot twist 🤯.
The Invisibility Cloak
"The opportunity was too perfect to miss. Harry crept silently around behind Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle, bent down, and scooped a large handful of mud out of the path.
Malfoys head jerked forward as the mud hit him; his silver blond hair was suddenly dripping with muck.
