Hi there, insatiable readers!
Long time no see.
Okay, so long time so previously scheduled post for you to read.
Today was to feature a book I read recently that I completely adored.
Seeing as I didn't get in this morning until 3 AM though....yeah, the brain wasn't so forthcoming with the ability to type up that said review. No worries...it will appear next week...but you must be curious what had me out oh so late..err, early...today, right?
Why it was none other than "the boy who lived" and his merry band of mates. Okay, so that sounds more Robin Hood-ish than HP but you know what I mean. Yes, my friends I had the pleasure of attending a HP marathon over the past two days...all leading up to the midnight release for the long awaited beginning of the end. Did I have fun? Yes....despite the fact that the marathon had little to no attendance (I totally blame the lack of advertising and confusion on the price/times) which lead to almost a private showing for the two days. Was the midnight release worth it? YES....to me and many other fans across the country. Even our little theater was packed full of HP fans. There were some in costume complete with robes, some with sorting hats, some merely claiming their house colors and others still who came just as they were. The movie itself was grand. The acting was good, the action heart pounding, the tragedies heart aching and so much more. The worrisome question of just where they were going to cut the book/film in two was answered perfectly and occurs just as Voldemorte...oh, um...yeah...you'll have to see, but rest assured it's a good stopping point.
If you have seen it already, I'd love to know what you thought!
If you haven't and are planning too....have fun!
In either case, have a great weekend everyone...and as always, happy reading!
