Bedtime Stories...




I began to read the Harry Potter series for bedtime and can’t believe I waited so long to finally read these books! At first I put it off because I didn’t want to read the books, feel to old for them, and then hate a series that’s considered such a classic for so many. Boy was I wrong! Reading these books makes feel like a kid again and I’m absolutely loving it. I’ve reserved these books for bedtime because it’s a great story to wind down with and a real plus has been the awesome dreams they’ve given me!







Ok, so I started reading two books: Until We Meet Again and Wuhtering Heights. I recently signed up for the Until We Meet Again Blog Tour so I wanted to start reading it now, and Wuthering Heights I picked up because my TBR said so (check out my Instagram account to know what I’m talking about, lol). Enjoying both so far!

    I’ve been (re-)reading the Harry Potter books before bed too, recently, and it’s been so great! Definitely the best kind of story to wind down with.

    Although, I’ve ended up staying up a little later than planned more than once, telling myself, “Just one more chapter!”

      It’s so easy to get sucked into one more chapter! It’s my first time reading the series, but surprisingly it hasn’t been spoiled for me. All I knew going in was there was a group of three friends who went to a school for magic. Going in blind was the best!

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying the Harry Potter series! I recently picked up Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, and I was a little reluctant to start reading that too. It’s a middle grade novel, and well…I’m 27. What if I found that I was too old for this much beloved novel? But, the storytelling was so rich that it didn’t matter that I was the intended age group! I think Harry Potter is kind of the same way. If a story is that good, it doesn’t really matter how old the reader is.

      I agree with you 100%!! I’m also super glad that the Percy Jackson series is the same because I got it for Christmas last year and hadn’t picked it up for the same fear. I look forward to picking it up after I’m done with Harry Potter!
