20 Years Of Magic - Harry Potter's 20th Anniversary

Monday, 26 June 2017

I can't believe it's been 20 years...

Harry Potter has been in my life for as long as I can remember. On the 26th of June 1997, Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone was published in the UK. I would have been 8 months old and little did I or anyone else realise what an impact it would have on my life. The first Harry Potter film I went to see at the cinema was The Prisoner of Azkaban, and it remains to this day my favourite book and film.


I really can't put into words how much the books, films and characters of this fantastic series mean to me. Every time I open the books, it feels like I'm returning home; every page reunites me with old friends and every adventure I get to relive.

Harry Potter has touched so many lives throughout the publications of the books and the releases of the films, and now we have The Cursed child and the Fantastic Beasts films, it truly does show that the magic will always live on.

Bravery, kindness, understanding, hope and most importantly, love. These are all things that the book series have taught me, and it all started with The Philosophers Stone. Harry Potter will always be with me. I will read it to my children, my friend's children and they will read it to their own children. The magic will always live on, within us and within the wonder of the books and films.

Thank-you for 20 years of magic.

Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

Love, K :)

Wizarding World Book Club!

Tuesday, 20 June 2017

Have you heard the news?! Pottermore are launching a Wizarding World Book Club, and I can't be more excited about it! I can't wait to delve into the books again, and this would be a brilliant starting point if you're someone who hasn't read the books before!


The Wizarding World Book Club aims to bring the wonderful community of Harry Potter and Wizarding World lovers back to the books and to celebrate them, as it's the 20th anniversary of The Philosophers Stone on the 26th on June! During the book club, everyone will have the chance to participate in discussing different themes every week, starting, of course, with The Philosophers Stone! You can participate on the Pottermore site or on the Book Clubs official Twitter! Every week, we will all be exploring a new theme of the wizarding world, diving deep into every little detail of each book.

It's going to be so much fun! 

I've also decided that as well as reading along with the community, I'll also be baking and making a Harry Potter inspired recipe each week so I've got something lovely to snack on whilst reading the books; which of course I will post on my blog, twitter and I'll also be making a video on my channel as well!

So get ready for an awesome few months of magic, wizards, cauldron cakes and pumpkin pasties!

The official start date for the book club is on the 26th of June, so get ready!

Love, K :)
