HP7: Part One

Call me a geek if you like, but this 30 year old is really excited for the latest Harry Potter film that comes out tomorrow!

I first began the series in my Young Adult Literature course at WSU and was amazed by the imagination of J.K. Rowling.  The books are very well written and although geared towards young adults and children very enjoyable for people of all ages.  I cried at the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) and was so excited to dive into Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) to see how it would all end.  When I finished the book I felt satisfied and yet also sad that there would no longer be any adventures of Harry Potter to read. 

The producers of the movies did an outstanding job casting for the books.  The characters are everything and more than I could have imagined myself and to watch them grow from these little cuties to adults.  They did it with grace and also without taking a page from the Lindsay Lohan book and ending up in rehab and quite an accomplishment if you ask me.  

We meet the darling Mr. H Potter living under the stairs and little do we know how important this little fellow will soon become.

We learned what "muggles" are. 

We learned that Dumbledore was a pretty incredible wizard who ran the hell out of Hogwarts.

We learned that anyone possessing this mark on their arm was a "Death Eater" and could not be trusted.

We learned that "He Who Must Not Be Named" is actually named Voldermort and is evil as they come (and also can shake it just like Shakira).

And of course, that even if you can't see or be with the ones you love, they are always a part of you no matter what. 

If you haven't read these books, please give them a shot.  I think you will find them highly entertaining and you will soon be attached Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore and Snape in no time. 

In case you also have been in a cave these past few months and missed the preview for Part I, for your viewing pleasure you can see it below (I still get goosebumps).  My tickets are good to go for tomorrow, and I absolutely cannot wait!

ps. im such a geek i have to comment again.

to anyone who hasnt read the books..i agree you must. and i am so jealous of the journey you are going to take. Honestly, I cannot wait to have kids to share this story with them.

as a religious studies major, I took a lecture on Harry Potter and the bible, and it rocked my socks off. I sat in the front row and was told i had to let others ask questions.:)

I am right there with you. I don't think a series of books has ever inspired me more. Hogwarts can always completely take me away...the books truly are magical.
