The Reading Fever's 2012 Harry Potter Reading Challenge is going to be EPIC because Harry Potter has always been my life! Harry Potter introduced me to reading writing, random spell-casting and I got to know my now bestest friends through much Harry Potter and Tom Felton versus Daniel Radcliffe-related bonding (we were eleven years old). Post Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows equaled post-Potter depression. Post-Deathly Hallows the movie part 2 was even worse. My friends and I stayed till the end-credits, refusing to believe that it was all over.
It has been a while since I've reread the series, drooled at the Great Hall feast food, laughed every time Ron says "bloody hell" and realised that oh my god, Harry is all grown up which is so WRONG. We grew up together before [SPOILER ALERT (highlight to read)] circumstances shaped him into the level-headed hero that he became with adorable kids given names like Albus Severus and Lily Luna.
I'm itching to reread the series, especially since it has been a while since I've reread the series in the correct order. So I'm really excited about the 2012 Harry Potter Challenge. Check it out if you (gasp) haven't read the Harry Potter series yet and want to or if you want to reread the series again for zillionth time, because Harry Potter is awesome like that. It never ceases to be any less magical.
