30 Day Challenge, Day 5

A book you love.

Harry Potter, hands down. Nothing can compare to Queen Rowling. I remember when the first novel was published, everyone was reading it. I think I was still in Elementary School, perhaps? I do remember being at someones house late at night and while they slept, I delve into Harry Potter and by the time my mum picked me up in the wee hours of the morning, I had already read most of it. I waited agonizingly for a while before I could get the second novel. After Deathly Hallows was released, I was sad because I combed through that puppy within a day, and realized that it was over. I sat there for a while clutching the book to my chest with utter grief that I spent my entire childhood on Harry Potter. And it was over. So I watched the remainder of the movies, and that was over a year ago…

This book makes you believe in  magic. That anything is possible. I remember wanting my Hogwarts letter to arrive when and never received it. I pre-ordered book after book, and standing in lines and arguing with my parents that it was an extension of my soul, my livelihood. How could anyone take that away from me? Dramatic, I know.

I’ll read these books to my children someday when I have them, and hope it opens up a world of imagination where anything is possible, as it did for me. I hope they’ll love the books as much as I did growing up.
