I personally didn’t get to see the moves until I was 17. I didn’t read the books until I was 19 (I think). I grew up in the religious family on the block, the one that didn’t celebrate Halloween, the one that judged EVERYONE and decided their faults and mistakes were their one way tickets to Hell, yeah. I grew up in that family. Don’t worry, I’m not like them.
The Harry Potter series entrapped me into a whimsical world of magical creatures, unshakable friendships, and love that I never knew was possible for any family to have. They are, bar none, my favorite series to read.
Thank you, J.K. Rowling.
