It’s time for a confession… and this one might have some of you GASPING in horror. Okay maybe not horror, but possibly calling blasphemy, for sure. Yet, I just KNOW some of you will join us in our “confessional blankie-fort” and rejoice in not being the only one.
Ready? Here goes:
Amy: Confession time… I have no desire to read or watch Harry Potter. *frantically clambers into blankie fort to hide*
Maryse: Amy you know one day I’m gonna post that confession. But I’m bringing ALL of us in there that haven’t it read it, so you won’t be alone. Me too.
Tessa: I have decided, that beyond all other books, I’m going to keep recommending Harry Potter from now on. You all believe Maryse hasn’t read them yet?
Maryse: I’m shameful. Harry Potter-wise. That’s right Tessa. Maryse has the WHOLE LOT OF ‘EM in her Kindle and has NOT read a single one. *sigh* *what’s HER problem?*
Leslie M: It’s funny because I want to be into HP. I’ve tried reading book and audio (hated the narration). I think I need to watch movie to picture in my head what it’s all about and then try reading it again. My teenage son hasn’t read it either and has copy on his bookshelf. His English teacher got him into Rick Riordan he completed Percy Jackson and is now reading Hero’s of Olympus.
Grey: No. Stop. Full stop. There’s this many of you that haven’t read Harry Potter for real?!? Ouch… That kind of hurts… I loved HP… Or maybe it was more seeing my kid so stinking excited for her bedtime story and the corresponding love of reading it inspired in her…. And now in my son, who now is following in his sister’s footsteps with the book love. This trip I just took to Universal, he got picked in the wand ceremony to get the Elder Wand… It was so cool. So yeah… I got nothing but love for HP…
I’ve read HP and watched the movies… prefer the books over the movies. Actually read the books out loud to/with my oldest as her bedtime story… over the course of a year. It was awesome!
MichelleS: I never read HP either! I think I missed that boat due to my age. But I watched all the movies! Couldn’t possibly go back & read them now!
Fabi: Maryse I’m hopping on your HP shame-train. I’ve seen a couple of the movies but no-go on the books.
Tessa: “I WATCHED ALL THE HP MOVIES!!!!!!!!!! THAT SHOULD COUNT FOR SOMETHING RIGHT? RIGHT? RIGHT?” LOL No. In fact, I should just say, don’t watch the movies until you read the book. There are MAJOR details missing in the movies that are in the book. I had people who only saw the movie asking tons of questions to try to figure out why things happened. I’ll say this. My mom HATED fantasy or paranormal type stories. She was more the mystery/ romance type, or medical horror. She loved Harry Potter. As soon as I was done, she’d start reading my copy. She’d join in on the debates and theories. This from someone who hated fantasy and sci fi.
So…. who’s coming in the Harry-Potterless protective “blankie fort” with us? Come on!! We know you’re out there!! Speak up!!!
