the Chamber of Secrets has been opened.

As you know (all 3 of you), I’ve been reading the Harry Potter books for the first time. Here is how the dialog went between me and my boyfriend while I was reading the second book, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

Me: Omg. Hagrid opened the chamber of secrets!
Dan: Omg.
[one hour later]
Me: Omg. Hagrid DIDN’T open the chamber of secrets!
Dan: Omg.

Seriously, I am more hooked on Harry Potter than I was hooked on boys in middle school and high school COMBINED. Would it be weird to join a Harry Potter fan club at the age of 24? I’m sure I could meet some pretty interesting people.

What is the deal with Draco Malfoy? Can we please discuss this, because I’d like to put a mad spell on him, to correct his attitude and so he can stop slicking his hair back like a 50 year-old television anchor in the 80s.

Book 1: done!

 I have completed the first Harry Potter book, and it didn’t take me very long at all! J.K. Rowling is an excellent author, and it was a very easy read. I was told that the first book is the most child-like one, them being 11 years old and all.

 To everyone who has read and watched all things Harry Potter: I am officially hooked. I was literally at the edge of my seat when I was nearing the end of the book, because it totally threw me for a loop! The entire time, we’re led to believe that Snape was the bad guy, then BAM. The stuttering, always-scared Professor Quirrell ended up being the bad guy. I didn’t see that coming.

My favorite character in this book is Hagrid, he’s so adorable with his dragon, Norbert (sad he had to give him up). He’s like a big teddy bear. On the other hand, I wanted to bitch-slap Snape the entire book. Why is that guy such an ass?

Netflix will be delivering Harry to me tomorrow, so I will be able to watch the first installment this weekend.

I’ve never really been into books and movies like this (other than the Wicked series), so I’m actually surprised that I loved the book so much. Very excited to start on the second installment! A little word to all the people who have refused to read and watch Harry Potter: give it up! You must read it…it is totally worth the time.
