I was 13 when the first Harry Potter book came out. Although I heard people talking about it, I never got into it. Even after the second and third and fourth etc came out, they just never really interested me.
It has now been 18 years since the first Harry Potter book came out and I
am just now reading them for the first time. Many people, throughout
the years, have told me that I should read Harry Potter, but it was my
10 year old niece (who is currently reading the books too, but she's
farther along) that was the one that finally convinced me that I should
I have now finished the first four books and have started the fifth book
and I love them! J.K. Rowling is an excellent writer. Every time I pick
up one of the books to read, I feel as if I am transported to the world
of Hogwarts and Privet Drive and that I am experiencing what Harry is
going through with him.
I think out of the four books I've finished so far, Harry Potter and the
Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite, although Harry Potter and the
Goblet of Fire is a close second. Basically what I'm trying to say is
that if you've never read Harry Potter, you should. They're well written
and you will experience the magical world of Hogwarts with Harry, Ron and Hermione.
