Welcome to Day 1 of the 30 Day Harry Potter challenge. Today's question is: What is your favorite book?
My favorite of the seven Harry Potter books in all honesty is the last one, "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows". While it's hard to narrow down a favorite just because I love the series as a whole, to a question such as this one that would be my definite choice.
I love the way that the final book really wraps up loose ends, and it has such a different feel to it. I love the road trip aspect of the book. In previous books Harry and the gang have always been, in a way of speaking, protected or sheltered by the walls of Hogwarts and the professors there. In this book you really get the sense of how much they are really on their own.
They are finally striking out on their own to accomplish things that they can't when they're adhering to the strict schedules at school, not that they always followed those... but still. It's the idea.
This book really embodies the idea that sometimes it's important to stray of the everyday path, the traditional one that you're expected to follow, because sometimes if you want to achieve the greatness that you are capable of you need to forge ahead on the less traveled path. Sometimes calculated risks are necessary.
I'll talk to you soon.
