Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

So a bit of a different post from normal but my mum and I went to see the new Harry Potter film last night!

I have never been a huge fan of the films as they never seem to reach the outstanding quality of the books, as most of the time they are too dark and dingy for my liking. However, I think this final film was definitely worth the wait.

I can't believe that the Harry Potter series has ended. The Philosopher's Stone was published the year I was born and I feel like I have grown up with Harry, Hermoine and Ron.

I wouldn't go so far to say that the film was better than the book (as in my opinion that is not humanly possible) however, it did have a certain charm to it and I think that it has done an excellent job of wrapping up the series.

Watching the new film has inspired me to re-read the books for the billionth time so you are likely to see some Harry Potter book reviews sneaking in here.

So, thank you JK Rowling for creating these superb books! 


  1. I probably won't see it until it gets out on DVD as there are too many small people for a trip to that kind of film and I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I totally agree Dot - the film was great and I can't quite believe it's all over. I've taken Deathly Hallows off the bookshelf to re-read.

    Not sure I can manage all seven books again, as I didn't read any HP until Deathly Hallows came out and then read all seven in two weeks - totally shut myself off from real life and lost a lot of sleep in the process!

    Happy reading and it's good to see you back :o)


  3. I am reading the books in sequence with my little ones - we're halfway through the Goblet of Fire and they are completely obsessed with Harry, Ron and Hermione! They are too small to see the final film but I'm hoping to go sometime this week - it sounds brilliant!
