Why I am re-reading Harry Potter…and you should too!

 To kick my reading slump I am re-reading the entire Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. 

Let's get this party started.

Here’s why I’m reading it and I think most of them are pretty good arguments that you should too!

: Because K over at Keeping up with K did earlier this year and it gave me the brilliant idea

: Because although I have every book but the first one, I was able to find that beauty for $.99

: Because I grew up with Harry, Hermoine and Ron and I felt I owed them a visit (man we’re old now)

: Because the lessons within are more powerful than the spells

: Because the movies don’t do it justice

: Because there is no better coming of age story
Except maybe this one...

: Because I wanted something I wouldn’t cry while reading (much)

: Because in some places the books are banned and I like being a rebel

: Because playing Cedric Diggory was Robert Pattinson's true calling and I like to read imagining him as the character

Because I get to rediscover my love for the series

: Because Rowling released this short story recently and I needed more

: Because I want to escape my boring muggle life (and go to Hogwarts)

: Because I all I want in life is to be a witch (so where is my Hagrid to break the news?)

: Because I am a Potterhead through and through and was part of the HP generation

 And because I will love this story and its characters Always

So who's with me?

  1. I LOVE all of your reasons. I'm halfway through Azkaban on my summer re-read and there are so many things they leave out of the movies because if they hadn't they'd be 7 hours long.

    1. Thanks Kasey! I think they did a pretty good job on the movies considering, but books are ALWAYS better than the movie remake in my opinion. You are way farther ahead of me - I'm only about half way through the Sorcerer's Stone. I'm glad someone else is re-reading this summer too!
