In a short blurb? We talk books.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
“Whether you come back by film or by page, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” - J.K. Rowling
In anticipation of the final Harry Potter film, I decided (rather late I might add) to read and watch the entire series before the midnight showing on Thursday. Seeing as it is Wednesday and the fact that I’m still reading Prisoner of Azkaban and watching The Order of the Phoenix, I don’t think I’m going to meet the deadline. I suppose that’s what happens when you get into the real world and spend most of your time at work! With this in mind, I made a split second decision this morning to drop the third book and to read The Deathly Hallows instead. Also, I’m planning on just watching the first part of the movie tonight… since there is no viable way for me to finish watching all of the movies (unless I stay up all night).
So what am I doing in anticipation for the movie besides my lame attempt at trying to read and watch the entire franchise? I’m having a very Harry Potter day tomorrow with some friends before the midnight premiere! After work, I am headed to the Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Times Square (20% promo code: NYCGMS11). I’m hoping that it will be as magical and wonderful as it seems on the website! Then onward to my hunt for butterscotch cupcakes and Bertie Bott’s every flavor beans to sneak into the theater with… If you’re searching for Harry Potter things to do in the city, check out these six ways to get into the wizarding spirit.
I’ve grown up with Harry Potter over the years. I remember the first time that this series was introduced to me and I want to give a huge thanks to my elementary school teacher for choosing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to read aloud to my class. It’s amazing to see the phenomenon that it has become over the years and I couldn’t praise J.K. Rowling enough for imagining and creating such a magical world to share with everyone. I only have two words to say: Thank you.
