Harry Potter by JK Rowling
This post goes out to all those sad souls who have not yet read the Harry Potter series. Wow. What. A. Loss. And YET what an opportunity! I blush at the thought of how much money I would pay to go back and read the series for the first time.
So please, consider this post a personal plea. I am begging you... NO ... demanding you to consider reading Harry Potter.
It's not just that Hermoine is one of the most badass feminine leads in literature. It's not just that Ron, Harry, and Hermoine's friendship inspires readers to achieve such loyalty for themselves. It's not even the moral lessons Rowling communicates through Voldemort's evil and Harry's journey to vindicate such evil.
NO. It's that the Harry Potter series contains one of the most magical, most fantastical, most dreamy worlds you could ever lose yourself in. What a treat to slip into Diagon Alley for wand shopping. What a kick to eat chocolate frogs on the Hogwarts Express. What a sight to see students learning to fly on school grounds. Losing myself in the world J.K. Rowling created is one of my favorite pastimes.
I could go on... But I'll stop myself here. Just please please please go read the series. Then tell me what you think!!
