Look at this brand new book I’m reading!
Oh, what? It’s been ten years since the last book in the series was released? Two books after? Oops.
Okay, confession time.
I started my annual-ish Harry Potter re-read last summer in preparation for what would end up being Harry Potter trivia victory for my sister and me, shipped my series across the country, and made it all the way into the fifth book and stopped.
The fifth book is angsty! I was homesick, missing my family, friends, and my life. I couldn’t handle the stress that Harry and friends were enduring. Even though I already know how it ends. Or! Because I know how it ends.
Sorry, I’m going a little crazy with the italicizing.
Point is, Harry Potter is a wonderful, glorious, magical gift to the world in which I can always return, particularly when our ministry seems to be infiltrated by dementors, Death Eaters, and Voldy himself….
Other books I’ve read lately:
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
And also reading:
The Girls by Emma Cline
What are the summer reads you can’t put down?
