LIFESTYLE : April Reads Part Two!

Hello Everyone, 

I hope that you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday Weekend! 

I have spent the last two becoming reintroduced with the Playstation 4 and also with reading. 

I think that its been great therapy for my head just to shut the world off and relax. 

Its been a crazy year so far.

If you read the blog regularly, you will know that I set myself the task or read four Harry Potter books in four weeks through April. 

I am pleased to say that I finished the Deathly Hallows today, thus bring the goal to an end! 

This book always catches me off guard as I forget how brutal it is.....  I mean for a children's book. 

People dying, People getting tortured and just a general feeling of dread. 

And yet, It hooks me and I always end it with a tear in my eye, I actually clutched the book to my chest after I finished. 

"All was well".

This truly is something I grew up with, the books and the films were being released when I was little and I couldn't wait for the next one. I made my Dad buy this exact copy on the day of release... he had to drive around alot of Northampton Book Shops to get it. 

He was my hero that day... 

(He's always been a hero to me, but that day I was extremely appreciative) 

  The series coming to an end is something beautiful and also quite sad, it was amazing when the Cursed Child came out.... I'm guessing thats it now.... unless there is another film. 

Yeah, as an adult, Harry annoys me alot (I've moaned about it enough on the previous book reviews )... but I am so glad with his ending.

 Again I'm being vague as I know that there are people out there that haven't read it..... 

I will say, because it breaks my heart... that there is one death at the start that I will never get over.... MY beloved Hedwig.... 

I have since reading that she is a symbol for Harry's Childhood, but man alive, she deserved better than what she got.... Harry's guilt over not being able to bury her turns me into a wreck everytime. 

I actually shed a tear at work when I re-read it. 

(I'm an animal lover and I know how much it hurts to lose a childhood pet... for Harry though its more that than, Hedwig was Harry's only connection to the magical world when he is shut up in Privet Drive.

She was the only one that he sometimes confided in and she had an amazing sassy attitude)

Thanks to J K Rowling, I'll never forget the feeling of wonder and amazement of magic and if I ever met her, I'd simply say thank you for my childhood. 

"After all this time? 


I have decided that I want to keep up my average of a book a week, I have alot of new ones to get through, not to mention ALOT of University ones as well. 

It's all about keeping the mind active and well trained. 

So until the next post... thanks for reading
