*Semi-spoiler free review*

I loved re-reading this novel. I was drawn back in so quickly and found myself realizing I missed the Wizarding World and Hogwarts more than I thought I did.

Harry Potter was the first 'real' book series I can remember reading. I felt like a kid again, but also I felt like I got something more out of it while reading it at this age. I understood subtle jokes that my 8-year old self didn't get. I had forgotten a lot from when I last re-read the series a couple years ago, so it was amazing because there were parts that were, essentially, completely new to me.

I love this world. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are fabulous. I absolutely love J.K. Rowling's writing style. It's simplistic and above-par, yet still gets all the details in.

The adventures that these characters get into just get better and better as the years go on, and I'm very much looking forward to re-reading the rest of the series. I've been sucked back in and am now required to continue, haha.

Infinity stars, of course!


Thanks for reading
