Magical Memories by Kezzi-Rose Magical Memories by Kezzi-Rose
HARRY POTTER and the Philosopher's Stone.

Where it all began.
This was the book that opened my childhood mind to the world of magic and wonder. It was the first proper novel I ever read, and J.K. Rowling's wonderful prose totally transported my six year-old self to a whole new land. The books grew up with my generation - as did the characters, who became like close friends - and there wasn't a single child in my class not longing for their own Hogwarts letter when they turned eleven. But even when that time came and went, the books continued to enrapture us and take us on new adventures with our fictional friends - and I still remember the emotion I felt reading the final instalment. I feel so lucky to have grown up with these stories.

I actually live and grew up in the same place J.K. Rowling did: the Forest of Dean, an ancient and picturesque area in England which was used as a setting used in the final book!

The first time I touched a Harry Potter novel I was utterly fascinated by it's wonderful plot and magical creatures~
It was in year 2 ^^
This makes me so happy! ^^
It's amazing how you lived in J.K Rowling's village ^^ You are very lucky~

Thats amazing! I love Harry Potter and the whole thing going to end in a snap makes me sad. I have all the movies except the last one part 2. I cant believe you met the people that inspiried her!.


MOOD:AWED& SCared

im scared cause i had a dream about godesses and zombies with my family and the marauders time people. Lets just say Medusa and two other evil godesess came out of my pool and zombies came from all around the hous outside. We had to fight them and protect ourselfs and others. It was awesome! bu terrifying because you didnt see it the way it was in mi mind. very gory.
