    I'm going to keep this brief since there isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. *clears throat* I think the reason I waited so long to read this series is because I just couldn't imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven-year-old boy and his adventures at a school of w...

    Rereading for the 3rd time for the group read. Once upon a time, there was a 10th grader named Khanh who didn't get along with people very well. She wasn't an outcast in school, and all the bullying and teasing stopped with the commencement of high school, but she had always been a ...

    I'm on page 27. I can already tell this is going to be a big hit someday. Everyone take note of this author. He's going places. Couldn't find him on Twitter, though. Wanted to tell him how great I thought page 23 was. ...

    This is a disgrace to all pure bloods. My head looked quite dashing on that strange professor's head.. If only I could have extended my stay. Harry Potter.. This is not over yet. ...

    My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight. However, this is stupid as the two are incomparable. Honestly, its not even worth discussing. Its not just that Twilight doesn't come close, it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works. ...

    Can 35 Million Book Buyers Be Wrong? Yes. Taking arms against Harry Potter, at this moment, is to emulate Hamlet taking arms against a sea of troubles. By opposing the sea, you won't end it. The Harry Potter epiphenomenon will go on, doubtless for some time, as J. R. R. Tolkien did,...

    I'm going to keep this brief since there isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. *clears throat* I think the reason I waited so long to read this series is because I just couldn't imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven-year-old boy and his adventures at a school of w...

    Rereading for the 3rd time for the group read. Once upon a time, there was a 10th grader named Khanh who didn't get along with people very well. She wasn't an outcast in school, and all the bullying and teasing stopped with the commencement of high school, but she had always been a ...

    I'm on page 27. I can already tell this is going to be a big hit someday. Everyone take note of this author. He's going places. Couldn't find him on Twitter, though. Wanted to tell him how great I thought page 23 was. ...

    IT'S HARRY FREAKIN POTTER OF COURSE I LOVE IT *reread in March 2017 (for the first time in like 5 years)(STILL WONDERFUL) ...

    I've FINALLY read a Harry Potter book!!! (Watch my review here): https://youtu.be/oUZ0EMsggSk ...

    Update September 2016: Currently rereading this series again! (I need to sort out my priorities.) I will never ever rate this lower than 5 stars. BEAUTIFUL. ...

    Why the heck did I not read Harry Potter before now...its flipping magical (literally)! ...

    This is a disgrace to all pure bloods. My head looked quite dashing on that strange professor's head.. If only I could have extended my stay. Harry Potter.. This is not over yet. ...

    My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight. However, this is stupid as the two are incomparable. Honestly, its not even worth discussing. Its not just that Twilight doesn't come close, it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works. ...

    There are no words to do this book justice. ...

    Review for Illustrated Edition Perfect. Duh. Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You OH LORDY. Every time I read this book it brings back so many memories, and also gets me excited to read the rest of the series again as well because there is so much foreshadowin...

    ***Because I got hate in the comments for OMG swearing in a children's book review (which I get, I guess...), DON'T READ THIS IF YOU ARE UNDER 18. Happy now, everyone?*** Well, I did it. I FINALLY read my first Harry Potter book...and in the same year as its 20th anniversary no less...

    One of my first jobs was at a bookstore. When I was a kid my Mom would take me to the mall and I would spend tons of time hanging out at Waldenbooks (who here remembers Waldenbooks?) Right when I became legally old enough to work, I went in and submitted my application and a few weeks ...

    Yes, I've been living under a rock. ...

    Here are three reasons why Harry Potter rocks my socks: 1.A Better World One of the main reasons Harry Potter is so wonderful is because Rowling shows you a boring world; it is the world of reality, dry, boring and ordinary. Then under it she reveals fantasy; she reveals everythi...

    This doesn't really need a review, does it? This series is brilliant and it will live on forever in our hearts and minds. ...

    Can 35 Million Book Buyers Be Wrong? Yes. Taking arms against Harry Potter, at this moment, is to emulate Hamlet taking arms against a sea of troubles. By opposing the sea, you won't end it. The Harry Potter epiphenomenon will go on, doubtless for some time, as J. R. R. Tolkien did,...

    As wonderful and magical as promised. Because I didn't remember the movie, the third act of the book was a delightful surprise to me. I wish I'd had this book when I was a kid, because the idea that someone could be special without knowing it, and then get to visit a special world w...

    I read this book a couple of years ago and, for some unknown reason, never continued on. It was just as wonderfully magical as I remembered, a breath of fresh air during what is usually a stressful time of year for me. I have yet to find a story that feels so pure and childlike that ap...

    I?m putting aside precious reading time to try and formulate a review for y?all so you should be grateful (and not attack me for my rating) So clearly, I had a very very sad childhood since I had not read Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or any other of those ?must-read-or-else-...
