Remembering Harry Potter

As you may have guessed from my dedication to Harry Potter over the last week, I absolutely love Rowling's world that she has created!  I fell in love with the series years ago and love them just as much, if not more today. Now that the final book and movie have been released, I thought it would be fun to do a little bit of a Harry Potter meme.  I hope you will join in with me!  If you do, please feel free to link up using Mr. Linky below!

When and Where (when you first discovered the series):  I first discovered Harry Potter on my honeymoon on the Oregon Coast!  That means it will be 11 years ago next month!  I remember my husband being frustrated with me, wondering if I was going to pay him any attention or just have my nose stuck in a book!

Favorite Character:  Ron Weasley ... I love his genuineness ... his humor, his willingness to admit his mistakes, his loyalty, and his love.

Most Hated Character:  It's a tie between Lord Voldemort and Bellatrix LeStrange ... no explanation necessary!

Favorite Book:  I have always considered Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban to be my favorite, but Deathly Hallows is not far behind!

Favorite Movie:  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2 ... I simply can't separate the two!

Rank the Books (1 = favorite, 7 = least favorite):  This is really, really hard, but here it goes ...
  1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  3. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  7. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Most Memorable Scene:  Mrs. Weasley and Bellatrix LeStrange ... another one that needs no explanation!

What You Will Miss the Most:  Never experiencing a new Harry Potter for the first time.

What You Are Looking Forward To (even despite the end):  Living vicariously through my children as they discover Harry Potter for the first time!

Your turn!!
