A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving.
My mum bought me the first two books in the Harry Potter series way back in 1998. I must have been 8 or 9 at the time. And I really did not like them. I started reading The Chamber of Secrets first not realising it was the second book in the series (I still do this sometimes). I had no idea what was going on in the book and I hated it.
I’m not sure why I went back and started The Philosophers Stone but I must have done. In my last year of primary school (around 2000/2001) I did a talk with a friend on The Goblet of Fire. We must have given away spoilers for the end of the book as I remember our teacher getting annoyed because she hadn’t finished the book yet.
