#hpnewyear2018

“All was well.”

It always feels so good to return back to these books and so extremely bittersweet when I finish them. Especially since I know I won‘t read then again until next year. I love these damn books and this journey. I love the way she wove everything together and the intricate details that reveal themselves when rereading. I love starting my year off like this with books that I love. Until next year...

TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords I‘m done! ⚡️❤️💛💙💚 2y
Notafraidofwords @TheNextBook wow. I‘m so impressed by this tradition you have. 2y
NCNY I've enjoyed all your posts during your re-read. You have a lot of really great insights. 2y

TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords I dont think you understand how happy I am that I started it. I read what I love and I was able to create a space for this one thing that I really love! It feels good knowing I have that space set aside. 2y
TheNextBook @NCNY yeah! I‘m glad you‘ve enjoyed it. I know everyone isnt into Potter so I try to give fair warning that post are coming! I could have conversations that last till eternity about these books!!! 2y
Notafraidofwords @TheNextBook that‘s amazing and because of that I read the whole series. 2y
TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords I‘m so glad you loved the books! I love when other people besides me love the book! 😂😍 2y

I cannot have a Harry Potter reread without Butterbeer! It has become a tradition to drink Butterbeer during the new year while reading Potter! I ran to the store this morning when I realized that I hadn‘t yet enjoyed it! I have remedied that. This Butterbeer is delicious! Not just like the park but good enough for me.

WhovianNerd I've seen so many butterbeer recipes online, I don't know which one to try first. 🤣 Which one is your favorite? 2y
TheNextBook @JessJFarias I always make this one because it‘s super simple. Mix cream soda and butterscotch topping, then mix whip cream with more butterscotch topping and place on top of your soda mix! Done! And delicious. 2y
BookishJess I'm over halfway in the Half Blood Prince then going onto Deathly Hallows next! I must try that butterbeer recipe, it sounds amazing. 🍺 2y

As soon as I finish #hpnewyear2018 I‘ll be grabbing this book and diving right in! I have heard nothing but great things about this book. I am super pumped about our discussion happening later on this month! I‘m hoping this will be a great start for the new year!

4thhouseontheleft There is a Litsy Feminist Book Club? I didn‘t know that!! 😍😍😍 2y
TheNextBook @4thhouseontheleft Yes! We‘ve been active for a little over a year now. We choose a book for each month and have an open discussion at the end of the month! 2y

Here we are again at the end of our journey.

The first time I read this book I finished it in 12 hours (don‘t worry I took a quick nap). I didn‘t know what to expect and there was so much to overcome. I had to know how it ended.

I love this dedication, I always have because I knew from the first book that I would stick with Harry to the very end. And here we are.

Finishing this book is always so rough. You know the journey is coming to an end but you‘ve just experienced an insurmountable loss and there is still so much more to come. More loss, more suffering, more harships. And you must continue to fight. I love re-reading this series. It‘s always so emotional but so damn worth it.

😫😩 Hurts. Every. Single. Time. 😩 What a huge role reversals for those two characters. The trust. The love.

Notafraidofwords Ugh. I know. A part of me feels like it was wise of the author to include this role reversal because it gives harry potter the chance to take care of a fatherly figure. 2y

I love how she slid some dirty jokes into the later books! This one is gold!

sarahgreatlove Omg I NEVER picked this up?!?! 😂 2y
TheNextBook @sarahgreatlove There are quite a few she slid in there. This one is my favorite!!! 😂 2y
PerksOfBeingABookworm I definitely did not catch that before. That's hilarious! 2y

I am still bitter. I can admit that. I will never read the play again or go see it. I still can‘t believe that she made it a point to say all the time turners were destoyed. Then she wrote on Pottermore that she destroyed the time turners on purpose so no one can write an alternate storyline... only to let that play happen.

I am still bitter. I am still trying to foget it was ever written. Not canon to me.

pilardib I feel the same way 😧 2y
TheNextBook https://www.pottermore.com/writing-by-jk-rowling/time-turner yep not canon! This completely contradicts the entire plot of that damn play! @pilardib look at this! (edited) 2y
pilardib Yep. That settles it. I'm just going to pretend this story was never written 😓 2y

TheNextBook @pilardib That‘s where I am. I saw that posting when the 3rd story line came out years ago on Pottermore. They took it down when they redid the site and this is the first time I‘ve seen it since! I didnt think they would repost it after the time turner debacle that is the play! 2y
Seekingtardis I have not read nor seen the play and I never want to! I‘m happy with fan fic but that is where it needs to stay!! 2y
TheNextBook @Seekingtardis I‘ve heard that seeing the play is amazing visually but I read that book and I did not care at all for the plot. And it conflicts with the entire concept of the time turner. 2y

I hate Snape. You can try and justify him all you want to but I can‘t stand him. That is a nod of Rowling‘s amazing writing that she was able to create a character that I so vehemently can‘t stand but look, his treatment of not just Harry but a majority of the students was just appaling. I cannot!

TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords I know you and I already talked about this before but it always bears repeating. Snape sucks... 🤬 2y
Christine11 I felt the same - he was so horrible to Neville especially! 2y
Notafraidofwords @TheNextBook yes!! I mean, I also think his love for Harry‘s mother was a selfish one. I think, he wanted her. I‘m not sure it‘s love. 2y

kylienoele Amen!! I really don't care how much he "loved Lily" he still sucked. 2y
TheNextBook @Christine11 He was unnecessarily vicious to Neville and that kid deserved better 2y
TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords it was completely and entirely selfish! He wanted her and then hater her son forever because he didn‘t get her! 2y
TheNextBook @kylienoele I remember there was this whole debate before book 7 on which side Snape was on and I was very firmly in the “I don‘t care, I‘ll still hate Snape!” side. (edited) 2y
