I Miss Hogwarts (i.e. My Harry Potter Hangover)

fawkes

I cried three times related to Harry Potter.

1) When Fawkes flew away in Half-Blood Prince

2) During the walk into the forest in Deathly Hallows.

3) The day after I finished the series and realized there were no new Hogwarts experiences to be had.

  1. You do know about the new movie series, right? J K Rowling is creating a movie series (sadly, no books as far as I’ve heard) based on the adventures of Newt Scamander, “author” of “Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them.”

    Also, did you know that she wrote “The Cuckoo’s Nest” under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith?

    • I had heard both those things! I’m very excited about the new movie.

      I chose not to read The Cuckoo’s Nest for the time being because the genre/premise didn’t interest me. I had read The Casual Vacancy even though that premise didn’t interest me, and it was a very, VERY difficult book to read and one I will probably never read again. Very sad, but not the kind of sad I love (TFiOS, Book Thief). Did you ever read it?

      • I haven’t read it yet, but I have it on order from the library. I have heard that it’s a tough book to read, but I have so much respect for her skill as a writer that I want to see where she takes this.

        Also, I ordered The Cuckoo’s Nest, because I like an occasional crime or whodunit (LOVE the older ones like Agatha Christie or Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, and I like the occasional modern story, though James Patterson and his contemporaries don’t interest me).

      • Let me know what you think of each when you read them!

        Yes, she is a BRILLIANT writer. The Casual Vacancy was very, VERY well done … but just so terribly depressing and without hope to me. It’s hard for me to process stories that don’t have at least a nod toward something better.
