Oh, this is a long story...
So I grew up being a little, quiet bookworm but I didn't read Harry Potter (and I certainly hadn't watched any of the films). Actually, I didn't even know what it was about, just that people read it like crazy, but most of my family members were like "this is rubbish! Magic and student wizards, pfff!" so I was a bit (much) biased and didn't want to read them at first.
Then my friend moved to town (the one I call Stonehenge) when I was at around 4th grade and we became BFF like, in seconds (lol jk). She was crazed with HP, and also other books I was reading at the time, such like Roald Dalh's and Narnia. So I mostly trusted her taste, but didn't start reading the books until I was in grade 6 when I borrowed them from the library.
Even THEN I did like them, or at least didn't admit I liked them, but was determined to read all the books without falling in love with them such like every other person I knew had. Though I did like them, and laughed, liked the characters, everything, I didn't get to love them (really, really love them) until I had finished the Deathly Hallows. I don't know, it's just that there was something in DH that really got me... I short of bonded with the trio.
Then I watched the Goblet of Fire (and loved it) then I went to the cinema to watch The Half-Blood Prince (and liked it- actually I think it was on the premiere night that I went to watch it
) and then one moment I was like "OK, fine! I'm a Harry Potter fan!" and this was the end of me
Though I sort of miss those days when I was reading the books for the first time, and I didn't yet knew how it would turn out because now I do...
and here's a twisted face for the end of this narration:
It's more fun to make your life your own invention.
