The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling

My Rating: 4 stars In a novel vastly different from the widely known ¬Harry Potter phenomenon, The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling follows the lives of multiple people who live in the small town of Pagford. After the sudden, very shocking death of Barry Fairbrother (that’s Barry, not Harry), a chain reaction travels throughout Pagford. […]

“The Casual Vacancy”

I know I am very behind on this, but on Thursday, J.K. Rowling announced the title of her new novel for adults, called “The Casual Vacancy” and a brief synopsis of the book. “When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an […]

“Bad Books”

Besides a dog, a book can be man’s best friend. Books provide an escape from reality, a break from our thoughts and our everyday lives. We read books to our children, before we go to bed, during lunch breaks and on the beach. But what is the purpose of a book? What makes a book […]

The Woman in Black

My Rating: 4 stars Arthur Kipps, played by Daniel Radcliffe is a lawyer who lives with his four-year-old son, Joseph. His wife, Stella, died after childbirth at a young age. Arthur is assigned to handle the estate of Alice Drawblow, who owned Eel Marsh: a big, looming house on an island far off shore. Alice […]

Pottermore

A mash between a social networking site and an interactive Harry Potter game, Pottermore is definitely something every Harry Potter fan will enjoy. I was lucky enough to be granted early entry into Pottermore, by answering one of the “magic quill questions” back in the beginning of August. I just recently got my welcome email […]

Deathly Hallows Part 2, Round 2

After seeing Deathly Hallows Part 2 again, I realized really now much of the ending of the movie was changed. Really, the whole timeline of events was altered. All the events leading up to the big moment (when Harry finally defeats Voldemort) were totally different than what happened in the book. After Harry is “killed” […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

My Rating: 5 stars Okay, here we go. I had been waiting for the moment I’d see this movie for four years. I was lucky enough to see it at midnight, and I couldn’t believe it was happening. I got to see the movie in 3D, and it was my first time seeing a movie […]

Hogwarts is My Home

Ever since the first Harry Potter book came out in 1997, the whole world has been captivated by J.K. Rowling’s intricate plotline and the magical world she created. It’s honestly hard to remember a time where I wasn’t absolutely in love with everything to do with Harry Potter. I was around the age of eight […]

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

My Rating: 5 stars The face that was once behind the circular glasses and brandishing a wand at the evils of the Wizarding World is now up on a Broadway stage wearing a suit and an electric-blue bowtie. Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, known as the “Boy Who Lived”, on the big screen adaptations […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

My Rating: 5 stars I have been waiting three years for this movie, even though it is only half of the whole. But let me tell you, it was definitely worth the wait. My friends and I all went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. We were ready […]
