If you’ve ever visited my blog, you probably know how much I love Harry Potter. I’ve done numerous posts about the series and talk about it all the time. Sorry, not sorry. But today is a special day. Not only is it Harry Potter’s birthday (and J.K. Rowling’s, by the way) but it is his 37th birthday. For those of you out there who aren’t quite as obsessed or prone to math as I am, that’s how old Harry was in the epilogue of Deathly Hallows. His 19 years later… is this year. Technically September 1st, when his kids go off to Hogwarts, but still!
It is also the 20th anniversary of this fantastic series (at least for readers from the U.K.) so it feels like a great time to celebrate the magical series that influenced millions of children and changed their lives.
I’ve said it before, but Harry Potter has been so incredibly influential on my life. The first few came out in the U.S. when I was a kid and my mom read them to me every night before bed. I’ve grown up loving the characters, messages and world of Harry Potter. The books have meant so much to me and I don’t know if I would be the same person I am today if I hadn’t discovered them.

Plus, I wrote a post for my newer Fandom Reads series about Harry Potter, which you can read here.
I recently wrote an unboxing post for my Wizarding World LootCrate, which you can check out here. There were some really fantastic items!
