list of the week

Things I Love About JK Rowling:

  1. She's dedicated. Seventeen years. Countless hours of hard work. Over 4,000 pages. All to bring us a fictional story about a young boy. Need I say more?

  2. Did you read the other day? Her acknowledgements? Just plain awesome.

  3. She's so darn creative. How in the world did she come up with things like a patronus, house elves, polyjuice potion, and names like Hagrid, Mundungus, and Dumbledore?

  4. She was insistent that the movies stay true to the books.

  5. She describes ordinary people in a magical way. Really when you think about it, the main characters are all normal people that you can relate to in some way or another. JK Rowling provides realistic descriptions of their feelings throughout the book and you can just imagine that it's all perfectly real.

  6. Her writing appeals to people of all ages and I guess say that she doesn't intentionally write with one specific age group in mind.

  7. She doesn't shy away from difficult topics to write about. Death and having integrity, fear and searching for truth are all issues she writes about in the HP series.

  8. Her writing is so brilliant, can draw you in so much that you'll get cranky not being able to keep reading when you want to, stay up until waaaayyy past midnight to get your hands on the next copy, and weep with sadness when the journey is almost over.
