An Enthusiasm For Books: Harry Potter

26 June 2017

Something I'd really love to start posting about is books. I haven't really posted about what books I've been reading along with reviews and recommendations. But since starting getting back into reading again I'd really love to start including some of my favourites on the blog! So I thought seeing as it is the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, I just couldn't resist starting my book posts with the mention of Harry Potter!

I grew up reading the Harry Potter books. I read most of the books before the films because I always love understanding more about a story before watching a film! I love everything about the films but there's just always something special about books that give you so much more information and details about the characters, plots, locations and magic.

We have the all the Harry Potter books on our bookcase but for the 20th anniversary I just couldn't resist buying one of the house edition books. I of course chose Gryffindor, which is my favourite house!

I haven't read the Harry Potter books in ages. I don't really tend to re-read books but if there's one thing I do always remember about the books are those most memorable quotes. There's just something special about book quotes that will always stick by you. You know, the ones that you can include in everyday life, the ones that you can always relate to and that truly means something to you.

So I thought I would list my top 5 Harry Potter book quotes in celebration of the 20th anniversary!


1."Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end. If not always in the way we expect." - The Order of the Phoenix

2."After all this time? Always" - Deathly Hallows

3."Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light" - Prisoner of Azkaban

4."It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." - Chamber of Secrets

5."Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?" - Deathly Hallows

What are your favourite Harry Potter or other book quotes?
