HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #22



Day #22

Just a quick update to let you all know how much I have read, or in this case, how much I haven't read.
Even though I was hoping by this stage to have read more than three books, I am an adult with two children and basically "adult responsibilities", having time to actually sit down and read is rare. So really three completed books isn't that bad.

I'm hoping to finish Goblet of Fire before December finishes, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

You know that whole daily update thing I said I was going to do? ....

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #8



Day #8

I thought I read a lot today, but it seems that I didn't.
I'm half way through at the moment, so hopefully tomorrow or the day after I can finish Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Also, is it strange that my love for Harry Potter is growing more and more? I can not wait to read my children these books.

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #7



Day #7

I forgot to do an update for day six....and I didn't read anything.

Day seven was a more productive day, as I started the second book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

There are so few books out there that can still be enjoyable to read over and over again. Harry Potter has to be one of them.

I also watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, because it was begging me on Netflix to watch. Also something that made me the happiest mother in the world happened, it was my four year old sons first time watching it, and he is now a fan.
He's made me a proud mummy :)

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #4 and #5



Day #4 and #5

"Catherine, you said there was going to be a daily update on your blog", you might ask.
"I can explain" is usually my response.

It's not that I forgot to post an update, actually day four nothing happened. I didn't read anything.
Yeah, I thought I was embarrassed on reading a few pages, no, reading absolutely nothing is. So really there wasn't any point in me posted a blog just to tell you I didn't read anything at all.

Let's forget about day four and go onto day five.
I FINISHED!!

Because of my dismal day yesterday I thought I'll kick my ass into gear and read.

My problem I have at the moment is; should I write individual reviews on each Harry Potter book or do it as a series? And should I also start watching the movies as well?

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #3



Day #3

Not much to report today. I did read more than the previous two days, but I still have not finished the first book. I should, okay I'm hoping, to finish Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone today and then I can start on the next one.

This is a short but sweet update. Hopefully tomorrow it will be longer.

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #2



Day #2

Day two was supposed to be a better day of reading, but of course that wasn't the case. Actually it was so bad that I was thinking about not posting an daily update. But I did say I was going to do it, and I am.
A lot of things got in the way yesterday, kids, Christmas shopping and Vlogmas videos. Seriously, there was a lot to watch. So there wasn't a lot of time for reading.

I'm just going to leave it at that....

HarryXmasToYou 2015 ~ Day #1


I've realised I haven't explained on my blog what I was doing this December.
I was going to do this anyway, actually I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but I thought Christmas would be the perfect time. That is to marathon read the Harry Potter series.
It wasn't until I saw on Instagram there was a Harry Potter book and movie marathon, that I thought it was meant to be.

#HarryXmasToYou is a marathon of everything Harry Potter for the month of December. I won't be participating in watching the movies, with a four year old and a three month old, I just don't have the time. But I will be participating in the reading.

Since I've been slack on the blog posts, I thought I'll do a daily update on my progress.
So without further ado, let's start with day one.


Day #1

I didn't get a lot of reading done, the first day of December is the busiest (okay, every day is busy in my household). I'm not worried about this, I'm hoping to do at least finish the book on day two, since when I last read it (a very, very long time ago) I read it in one day. 
Don't worry, I question the way my brain works as well.
