Well, I haven’t read any of the books, seen any of the movies or gone to universal studios. But, my granddaughters love it and started reading them a couple years ago when the oldest was 8 or 9 (SHES an above average reader). They love it.
Love Harry Potter!! I read the books for the most part as they were released. Have read them all multiple times (and this LOAD is making me want to start reading them again)! I’ve seen all the movies, been to Universals Harry Potter area twice, and saw the Cursed Child on Broadway! We have a Harry Potter bookcase in our living room with all our books and other trinkets, including the sorting hat. I was definitely excited for this theme!
My first introduction to Harry Potter was when I taught a Harry Potter science camp in 2001. I read the first book so that I would be prepared for camp and I didn’t really love it. It wasn’t until We left on a trip a few years later and I forgot my books. My brother was reading book number three at the time prisoner of Azkaban I devoured the book and couldn’t wait to read more. From that point forward I was hooked!
I was when the books came out. I bought them as soon as their release dates were announced. But it’s been many years since I’ve read the last one, so my Potter knowledge has really diminished. This has been a nice refresher course.
