20 Years of Harry Potter!!

Image result for harry potter happy birthday

Harry Potter came into my life probably a bit later on than a lot of people, however it came into my life at a time where I needed it most. I had been struggling with anxiety/depression and was incredibly lonely as I had just moved away from everyone. I picked up the first Harry Potter book and it absolutely changed my life.

I have been obsessed with Harry Potter ever since. Every time I read the books or even watch the movies, I feel like I am being reunited with old friends. I am so, so happy that Harry Potter will be with me for the rest of my life.

Happy 20th Anniversary to a story that captivated the world and encouraged reading in both young and old. I will forever be grateful to J.K. Rowling for her persistence in getting this story published.

How has Harry Potter impacted on your life? Let me know in the comments section!

  2. What a lovely post! I’m so glad they helped you. I was 32 when I picked up the first book, and I did so mainly because my younger library patrons kept coming in and telling me I simply had to read it. Little did I know what an effect the series would have on my own life. I suffer from anxiety and depression as well, and when real life seems to be getting the best of me I revisit the books. It is indeed like being reunited with old friends!😊

    My first book I read as an adult was the second or third Harry Potter book. (Argh i can’t remember!) I had just seen the previous movie and HAD to know what happened next.
    I read the book in 24 hours and felt physically sick after as I hadn’t read that quickly before and my mind was just racing. Great reading though!
