Harry Potter Anniversary Week: Day 4 – Harry Potter Related Story

Our dearly beloved series, Harry Potter will turn 21 on June 26th so everyone who’s participating in this challenge will be posting Harry Potter related to celebrate the series for a week! There’ll be a different theme each day, you can check out the details for each of them in Margaret’s post.

I supposed to post this yesterday, but as usual work gets in the way. So regarding this topic, I want to talk about how Harry Potter literally change my life.

I was introduced by Harry Potter when I was 6 year old. My father bought me Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and I remembered I said to my father that I don’t like reading books (I’m a manga addict back then so the only book I read was manga). But my father was so determined he bought the DVD so I can watch it first.


One afternoon we watched it together with my entire family. And I still remember that feeling, I stare at the screen trying so hard not to blink because I was afraid that I would miss any magical moments, I was so mesmerized and captivated by the wizarding world ever since.

I read the book as soon as we finished the movie and that was my first book, since then I keep asking for more. I read any books I could find in my house, in school library, and public library. I was just so eager to see the new worlds through books.

I was this awkward child who had trouble to make friends (still am) and ever since I found books I’m just done trying so hard to fit in, I was just sit there and read my books. One time I brought my Harry Potter books to school and my friends was like “wow, you read the books?” and “you like Harry Potter too?” then just like that, I found my people!

Maybe that’s why Harry Potter and The Sorcere’s Stone book matter the most to me because the memories I had with this book was too precious!


What made you read Harry Potter in the first place? What was your precious moments with Harry Potter?

  1. Ooh, I actually watched the Philosopher’s Stone before reading up the books too! That’s what convinced me to pick it up (because same here, I was a manga addict), so it’s cool how we had the same start back then! 😀

    1. Woow I didn’t know you’re a manga addict too. Do you still read them? Yeah, the movie really jumpstart my love of reading, I didn’t know I was capable of reading books 😂

      1. Haha yeah! I was uber into Naruto for a long time, but now my favorites are Black Butler, Beelzebub, and a few others. I dabbled in a ton of manga back then, so I’m still pretty familiar with most of the older mangas. 😉 You have any faves?

      2. Ooh, I enjoy shoujo mangas too! I read a ton of them back then (don’t remember much now), but one that really stuck with me was a manga called Strobe Edge; know that one by any chance?

      4. I know, it’s super old! But again, I haven’t been keeping up with manga in recent years, so I wouldn’t know. 😂 And I’ll keep Parfait Tic in mind when I’m in the mood for a shoujo manga! Cheers! 😁

  2. Hp will always be my favorite for obvious reasons! I got into it when my mum first bought it from a second hand store. I didn’t have many friends (like 2, I guess 😂) so it was easy to just binge the series! I’ve lost count of times I’ve re read it!

    1. Me too! Ever since my father bought it for me I spent so much time reading the series and every other books I could find!
