Potterhead from Nova Scotia. I’m an east coast girl through and through! Mostly a major homebody. I like to make stuff, create art, write, be a mommy and wife, and also be a big dork about Harry Potter. I read the Philosopher’s Stone when I was 9, or at least I think it was 1998, and I fell in love with it like millions of others. I’ve since read the books more times than I care to keep track of, watched the movies maybe not so many times (but a lot). Each time you read them, there’s some other little thing you notice, some connection. It’s such a well imagined world, it’s hard not to become absorbed in it!
I mean, I’m clearly not ashamed to admit how obsessed I am. Look at what I’ve gone and done, starting a blog.,, and this edited Slytherin picture, I mean, come on. LOL
So, this is a place where I can empty my head of all Potter-related thoughts. The beautiful thing about starting this blog now, is that the WW Book Club by Pottermore is in session and there are SO MANY great discussions happening, I want to take all the weekly questions and delve just a bit deeper. Although I made an account specifically for book club, I don’t always have time to participate live on twitter (Friday noon for me, with a baby and a toddler) and I always want to write a lot more than 140 characters anyway.
One Important Note: If you haven’t read the books, or if you’re reading them currently and are not past the first two, please be warned that this blog is OBVIOUSLY FULL OF SPOILERS. I won’t put spoilers on twitter, but on here I am not holding back. 😀
(I’ll dork out for another minute about Pottermore:
I was sorted into:
JKR created the American school of witchcraft and wizardry, Ilvermorny, which also has 4 houses:
My patronus ended up being a rare one (apparently):
… and also my wand combination:
My old username was GlowStar1976. I made a lot of potions. It was fun while it lasted, the old Pottermore, but I very much enjoy the new format.)
Anyway I hope that, if you enjoy Harry Potter, you’ll enjoy this blog. I’d love to hear your thoughts!!!
