So…I am a bookaholic. Yes, I am one. I’ve read a lot of books. I do read a lot of books. But a few days ago I realized that there’s something I’ve missed doing. Something that I am supposed to do but I haven’t. What was that? Oh, well, the title says it all, doesn’t it? So yeah, I hadn’t read the Harry Potter Series. Now I know it might not be that big a deal…but HP is exactly the kind of book I read very much. The whole fantasy-thriller genre is something I absolutely love. So It was suddenly clear. I had to read this particular series and soon. And all the raving and hype about this series and the huge fandom it has, how hadn’t I ever though about reading it before? Thus it was high time I correct that little error. 🙂
I ordered the Harry Potter Box Set with my birthday money and the day it arrived, I just kept staring at it all day. They were so utterly gorgeous! The covers designed by the very talented, Andrew Davidson, were a sight to behold. Each cover more beautiful than the other. ❤

.( Picture Courtesy : Meee!! Because blurry or not, I had to post at least one of my pictures 😉 )
I finally had the HP series in my possession and I couldn’t wait to dive in. So I did. That very day.
And that very day I got this idea. Most bookworms now, have read this series and they all are proud PotterHeads. But when I shared my excitement about reading this series for the very first time, I came to know badly they want to experience it themselves too. The experience of entering Harry Potter’s world for the first time. So a lot of them requested me to share my views and reviews with them through the journey, which I will. 😀
Now I’m done with the first book and I can already say that Harry Potter can’t be reviewed. It not something you just read. It’s a journey, which you can only experience. ❤
Also I’d only seen the first 3 movies of HP when I was quite young, and because for some weird reason back then, I’d lost interest in them and didn’t bother watching the next ones. So I’ve decided that I’ll watch the movie of each book i read, right after I’m done with the respective book. :p
