Just as good this time as it was the first!
There’s nothing better for a little happy entertainment than getting swept up in the world of Harry Potter. It’s a tremendously well-imagined (and well-planned) series that is ideal for rainy days and autumn. So, perhaps against my better judgement, I lost a couple of hours to it this morning, on this perfect reading day, and managed to polish off the Chamber of Secrets. I suppose not much more needs to be said about this book since probably all of you reading this have yourselves fallen in love with the series, and if you haven’t been convinced to read them by now, no amount of persuasion on my part could make you do so.
The world of Hogwarts is just such a comfortable, yet exciting one. How romantic it seems to think of myself curled up in an oversized wingback chair before the glowing fire in the Gryffindor common room (although I’m fairly convinced I’d actually be in Hufflepuff, I just don’t know what their common room looks like!). With so many endearing characters about in the castle, and the environment so conducive to history and books and community, I just can’t get enough of it.
Next I’m going to dive into Franny + Zooey, for anyone who’d like to read along. I’ve surprisingly really come to love my morning reading time. I am not a morning person. I know a lot of people like to read in the morning, and I always hated the idea of it in the past because I have such a darn hard time getting started every day, so to add another thing onto my list of to-dos in a short amount of time was just undesirable. But this summer I started waking up earlier to add this into my day and found that it has actually helped me ease into the day and helps keep me in a better mood. I’d highly suggest it for those who like to read, but hate getting out of bed in the morning. Just make sure that coffee is involved and you’re good to go!
