On this, the 1st September 2017, I am starting a reread of the Harry Potter books. I’ll just be doing the main series (from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) but I can’t wait to get stuck in.
I can’t remember the last time I did a dedicated re-read. I’ve dipped in and out of the series across the years but reading all seven is long overdue. It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but this seemed like the perfect time to get stuck in. After all, the 1st September 2017 is usually considered to be the date that the epilogue is set in. It seems like a night tough to dive right back in when the next generation of the Potter family would be starting their Hogwarts adventure too.
Since it’s been a forever since I read the whole series, I’m not entirely sure how long it will take to make my way through the seven books. As such, I’m not setting a strict time frame on finishing the reread. Instead, I’m just going to wing it and will be posting weekly updates on Instagram. I’ll also be sharing my thoughts/ favourite bits /fangirling on Twitter on a more adhoc basis. I’ll be using the hashtag #TNGreadsHP on both Instagram and Twitter to keep things simple.
This is a personal challenge and certainly not an organised read-along. However, if you fancy joining in, you are more than welcome to. If you do, please keep me updated with your progress on Twitter or Instagram (I’m @thisnortherngal there too). I’m sure I won’t be the only one doing this, so if you hear off any twitter chats or organised read-along, please let me know about those too!
I love Harry Potter so I am so excited to dive back into the wizarding world!
