Turn To Page 394 Tuesday #1

Similar to Friday 56, Turn to Page 394 requires turning to page 394 and sharing a sentence, passage or whatever strikes your fancy on that particular page. For my first Turn to Page 394, I find it most fitting to start with Harry Potter. Disappointingly, The Prisoner of Azkaban does not have 394 pages, thus […]

Friday Memes #56

Hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addict  Question: What is your go-to drink and/or snack while reading? Answer Tea is my go-to reading beverage. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside, a hot cup a tea and a good book go perfectly together all year round.  As for snacking, well…guilty as charged.  It takes […]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

As I saw Sarah Palin in Dolores Umbridge in The Order of the Phoenix I’ve found Barack Obama as Harry Potter in The Half-Blood Prince.  Let’s start with the basics shall we?  Both Harry and Barack have been dubbed “The Chosen One” at one time or another bringing hope and the thought of change to […]

I have a whole new appreciation for this book and another reason to loath Dolores Umbridge — Dolores Umbridge is Sarah Palin! The similarities are glaringly obvious. I shall start at the beginning with her being McCain/Fudge’s right-hand man {or women}. Both where not well-known outside of their community before being promoted to a higher […]

J.K. Rowling continues to draw toward two major themes, love and prejudice.  Love, through Harry with those surrounding him with a strong desire to protect him.  His mother giving her life to save him, Dumbledore through the stupidity of blind love consistently finds excuses to avoid telling him the true reason Voldemort attacked thirteen years […]

First is Dobby the house elf who warns Harry, for his own good sir not to go back to Hogwarts School as it is not safe this year.  Unfortunately, Harry brushes this advise aside and attends his classes,  Dobby […]

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

January 8, 2011 Whitney Review 5 Comments

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, what is there to say that hasn’t already been said?  Magical, creative, spellbinding, suspenseful, cleverly crafted with a sense of camaraderie, just to name a few. Harry Potter, the boy who lived has no idea that he is special or famous, how could he with a cousin like Dudley […]
