Harry Potter

Well everyone seems to have Twilight Fever at the moment (especially my Mum) but for me it is all about Harry Potter!! I read all the Twilight books and did very much enjoy them (couldn't put them down) but with the Harry Potter book I have read them over and over and over!! I have lost count at the amount of times I have read these books.

I have seen the first 3 Twilight movies - and did enjoy Twilight and New Moon but when I watched Eclipse I was less than impressed. I don't know what it was but to me it was really cheesy and just wasn't really into it (sorry all you Twilight fans - and I mean you Mum as I know you are one of the only people that read my blog....and Paige...Hi Paige ha ha ha). Maybe my expectations were too high, I wont be seeing the latest Twilight movie at the movies (too expensive to go to the movies these days) I will just be waiting for my mum to buy it on Blu Ray so I can watch it on my big TV! ha ha ha See even though I wasn't a fan of the last movie I will still watch all the rest of the series (hmm I know that's a bit weird)....if only for Jacob. ha ha ha I feel a bit weird watching (and by watching I mean drooling) him though as I can remember being an adult at my work (daycare) and watching him in Sharkboy and Lavagirl with all my Preschoolers! ha ha ha

But what got me SUPER excited this week was the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2!!! WOW!! I have most of the Harry Potter series on the big screen except the first one (as I hadn't read the books then and wasn't a fan) and sadly I missed the last one at the movies when I was pregnant! I had really bad swelling at this time and was in pain when I sat for too long but I had decided that NOTHING was going to keep me from seeing this movie (boy was I wrong) and thought I would just keep my feet up on the chair when the ushers weren't looking. ha ha ha

My whole pregnancy I kept saying that I was going to the movies to watch Harry Potter as I wasn't due for another 3 weeks after it came out. My mum kept saying to me that she thought I would miss it as she had a feeling I would be in hospital with a baby when it opened....but I didn't believe her!! No way would I go 3 weeks early. Well would you believe that they admitted me into the hospital on the night of the midnight screening!! ARGHH!!! I totally missed Harry Potter - on release day when everyone was at the movies watching Harry on the big screen I was in labour (Mum its all your fault actually - you jinxed me)!! GRRR!! ha ha ha Don't get me wrong I love my baby to bits (how could you not when he is so super duper cute) but I still tell him all the time that I never got to see Harry Potter on the big screen because of him. ha ha ha I finally watched it this week and I LOVED IT!! I have been waiting very impatiently for it to be released on DVD - and it was all a bit sad pressing play and knowing it would be the last Harry Potter movie! I was blown away with how well they made the last book into the movies!

I think that after I finish the book I am reading at the moment that I am going to reread the Twilight series (as mum keeps asking me what happens in the end and I cant remember as it was that long ago that I read the book) and then I am going to do Harry Potter....again. ha ha ha And then I will start on my massive stack of new books that I have not read yet!! Lucky I love to read so much!!


  1. As a whole I definitely think Harry Potter is a better series. You should go see Breaking Dawn though - it is entertaining!! :)

  2. As you know I have loved them all... think Breaking Dawn is the best one so far... I can't wait for it to come out on DVD to see it again.

    Dad and I just watced the last 2 Harry Potter DVD's..... Love all of them too......

    Team Jacob for me.. Plus I love Alice and Jasper.......

    I knew you were further along then the Drs said.. and according to my dates you would be in hospital... and you were LOL
