Hey fellow Potterheads! So I'm sad to say I am a little late at joining the club as I've finally just started to read the books at age 24
I've seen all the movies when they first came out but I don't know why I never got around to reading the books when I was younger as I had read other popular series such as LOTR, Stephen King's work etc but anyhoo, better late than never!
I'm currently half way through Prisoner of Azkaban and so far, I'd say that is my favourite book though I am really looking forward to reading Half Blood Prince. I don't find it boring reading the books after the films, I'm enjoying it very much
So what are your favourite moments from the HP series? Who is your favourite characters? What scenes from the books do you wish made it into the films?
Feel free to add your Pottermore stats too if you fancy
My stats are -
House - Hufflepuff (I was very happy with the house I was allocated to )
Patronus - Tortoiseshell cat (a cat, surprise surprise for me )
Ilvermoney - Horned Serpent
Wand - Ash wood with a Dragon heartstring core 9 and 3/4 inch and quite bendy flexibility
I think if I ever came across a Boggart, it would appear as a wasp and it would be bloody hard to try and make that look amusing! My favourite character so far is either Hagrid or Dumbledore.
Better late than never! It's always good to hear someone's reading the books, because you learn more about the lore, and personally I love the charming writing style. Also with the later books they cut a lot of the scenes out because movies have to be short, so it;s cool to see the tidbits that are 'new'. I read the books ages about but I think I skimmed it because I don't remember much, as I'm rereading them atm, and I'm on Goblet of Fire atm. I've loved PoA the most so far in my rereading thingy.
I love the moments in PS, there's just something charming, fresh and new about that book, as everything is new, and the later books don't capture that same note, in a good way! I like the tension in CoS, and I love, love love the chapters where they are in the Shrieking Shack in PoA, as well as the angry Harry scene where he learns that Sirius was his father's friend and betrayed them. Gotta love angry Harry.
My favorite character is Remus Lupin! Such a sweet cinnamon roll. I also like Hermione and the Weasleys, and Sirius and Dumbledore, and Hagrid. And to an extent Lockhart (but not if it was real life) and Harry.
