Ok, fine, Iâ€™m total geek. Iâ€™ve just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in one sitting. But, if youâ€™ve known me long enough, youâ€™d know it was normal for me to do that. I was lucky that my parents decided that I took up speed reading classes back in grade school, and that my semi-obsession over the books kept me from putting the book down (yeah, not even to take a bath haha).
To be honest, I wasnâ€™t as excited about the last book as I was when the Half-Blood Prince came out last year. Well, I was able to sleep soundly for one, unlike last yearâ€”I couldnâ€™t sleep a wink the entire night before the release. I guess I thought I didnâ€™t have much to look forward to when JK Rowling made Dumbledore snuff itâ€”he had always been my favorite. So instead of keeping vigil, I slept and woke my husband up â€œearlyâ€ (early, as in, one in the afternoon) to claim the reserved book.
The book was worth every penny, and one year of waiting and wondering if Snape really was an asswipe who finished off my favorite character.
** If you havenâ€™t read the book, but planning to read it or havenâ€™t finished it yet, I highly recommend you donâ€™t continue reading this post until you do. Sorry, but there could be spoilers! 😀 Read more
