This Thursday at midnight is the premiere of the last Harry Potter movie, like many others, I feel I sort of grew up with the books and movies, but specially with the books. I was a teenager when they first came out and remember reading each book in pretty much one sitting, and then, re-reading them to my little brother. I used to even make different voices for the characters! Needless to say, the ending of the book series was quite emotional and I feel this last movie will be as well. So here are some of my favorite HP links, amongst other literature-related links for the week.
- This post from the funny gals at Gofugyourself makes me love Emma Watson even more! She looked gorgeous in that Oscar de la Renta gown, right?
- This slideshow and accompanying article are a great peak at what it takes to bring magic to the big screen.
-Another interesting slideshow from NYT on Harry Potter: An Exhibition. I really hope I get to see this exhibit at some point!
-If you need to fill the (reading) void left from the HP series, I recommend taking a look at this Best Summer Reads picked by independent bookstores owners on NPR...
-... and for the foodies out there, this list of recommended cook books aims to bring the cooking experience back to basics. "Fresh and Fast Vegetarian" is definitely going in my must-have list.
Just look at how much these kids have grown. I cannot wait 'til Friday!
