Here I am back to write about Harry Potter’s final year at Hogwarts. I tried to put my thoughts into words earlier this week but failed miserably because I allowed my mind to get too boggled and I totally spazed out and went in a different direction than first intended.
My idea to write a blog about Harry’s senior year came to me in the middle of the night. I’d been awakened by my husband’s boisterous nose music. (a.k.a. snoring that could be heard down stairs) Since I couldn’t get back to sleep my mind got to work thinking about this and that and for some reason (I’m thinking it’s because I’d seen a movie preview.) H.P. came to mind. So my thoughts went to Harry and what adventures lay ahead for him, Hermione, and Ron at Hogworts. Will Lord Voldemort prevail? I doubt it, but I’m sure its going to be the fight of their lives. Is Snape a friend or foe? Will Draco Malfoy, follow in his father’s footsteps or become something worse or perhaps something better?Whatever J.K. Rowling has in store for us, I wait with baited breath. I’m so excited there are just fifty-six days that lie between me and my very own copy of Deathly Hollows. That’s a hop skip and a jump away from what’s sure to be a page turner. Yet my excitement is so truly bittersweet, because with each page I turn it will bring me closer to the end. No more breaking the rules, or snooping beneath the cover of his invisibility cloak. No more sweets from the candy cart, or Christmas sweaters from Ron’s mom. No more Hagrid, Dumbledore, or quidditch.Yet sure as I write this HP and all his adventures will continue to thrive in my home. I have a picture in my mind’s eye of Michael and I reading Harry’s adventures together perhaps from separate books or sharing the same one. I’m sure to enjoy his take on HP and what he thinks is going to happen next; and of course he won’t have to wait a year or two for the next installment. I’ll have them all here waiting for him to read at his leisure.
J.K.R. will be signing her books in London shortly after midnight on July 21. You can enter to win a pass to her private book signing at scholastic.com. I’ll definitely enter, for that once in a lifetime chance to not only meet this incredible weaver of magic and mystery but to have her sign one’s very own copy of Deathly Hollows. It’s a long shot for sure, but it’s still something nice for those that do win. Either way I’ll be in line waiting to get my preordered book into my possession on 21 July!
Until then! Happy Waiting!
There it is. Not quite as interesting as I thought it be. Perhaps I should have gotten up in the middle of the night and put pen to paper when my thoughts were fresh, because what I’ve written doesn’t seem the same, but it’ll suffice. I’m done with this topic until I get the darn book!
