Harry Potter Obsession

Look how young they look!!
Now when you read that title, don't think that I've gone crazy and create a Harry Potter room or anything. (Which, by the way Ryan's grandfather has actually done. Very cool looking with bedding, all sorts of memorabilia and artwork. Next time I visit I should totally post photos!)

Nope, my Harry Potter obsession is in regards to the books. With the last movie being released I feel a sort of nostalgia for Harry, Ron and Hermione when they were little. The fresh, new and timid wizards just starting out and learning the magical aspect of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. I know so many people who have read the books and I foolishly thought I would be content with just watching the movies. That is no longer the case. My Harry Potter reading obsession is taking on new life. I have felt this way about reading since the Twilight books were published (don't laugh). I have read a total of three books thus far and I started reading them almost two weeks ago! I am certain that within another two weeks I will have finished the series. It's crazy. Ryan says they are "easy" reads which is why I'm breezing right through them. Be that as it may, I'm still kicking butt reading up on these crafty young fellows.

I've known this with my Nicholas Sparks reading habits that a lot of times the books give a lot more details than the movies; obviously so since a book can go on forever while the movies have limited time to catch the audience and deliver it's message. And it's true with the Harry Potter series as well. There are a lot more details in the books and some "nuggets" that I found very interesting. Such as a Squib which is a child of magical parents but has no magical powers him/herself. I knew the term Muggle and Mugblood, but not Squib.

Anywho, I'm really digging the series and recommend to anyone has not yet read them to hop on it!
