Happy Friday Everyone! Sorry I have been slightly MIA this week. I have been crazy at work and have been slammed with homework. I decided to share the chapter book I am reading this week.
Book Beginnings is a blog meme hosted by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading. You also share your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, etc. The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice. The idea is to post a teaser of the book from page 56. So let’s begin…
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets written by J.K. Rowling
“Not for the first time, an argument had broken out over breakfast at number four, Privet Drive. Mr. Vernon Dursley had been woken in the early hours of the morning by a loud, hooting noise from his nephew Harry’s room.”
As we all know, I have already read this series and love them. After reading the first couple of lines all I felt was excitement to dive in and wondering what Uncle Vernon was going to do. He sure does not like Harry so being woken by his owl would not be good. I am almost finished with this book and am enjoying being sucked into the Harry Potter fantasy world. Now lets take a look at my favorite part on page 56. It is such a funny part in the book and movie!
“Ron was pointing at the red envelope. It looked quite ordinary to Harry, but Ron and Neville were both looking at it as though they expected it to explode.
‘What’s the matter?’ said Harry.
‘She’s – she’s sent me a Howler,” said Ron faintly.”
What do you think? Want to become a Harry Potter fan like me?
