Harry Potter Month: My HP Stats, Facts and Faves

Posted July 26, 2015 in Blog Fests & Hops, BOOKS / 0 Comments

Harry Potter Month is a yearly event taking place throughout the month of July, to coincide with Harry Potter’s birthday. Hosted by Faith at GeekyZooGirl and Micheline at Lunar Rainbows Reviews, the aim is to fill the month with all things Potter. There are themed posts, discussions, art and fans rereading the books and rewatching the movies, all of which will earn the participants House-Points towards the House Cup at the end of the month. For more information or to sign up, click here.

Unfortunately I only found out about Harry Potter Month yesterday, so I’m really late to the party, but I’m going to try to join in a little anyway.

Today I thought I’d introduce myself to HP Month by sharing some of my personal Harry Potter statistics, fun facts and favourite things about the series. Feel free to share your own answers in the comments or in your own blog posts.
