SOR Book Reread Review: Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. Rowling

When the Harry Potter books first came out I refused to read them. Yeah, I know some of you are probably thinking what the heck is her problem. Well, back then I had a thing about reading books with lots of hype behind them. I couldn't handle the disappointment when they didn't live up to the hype. It was even worse than when a movie doesn't live up to the hype. Thankfully, at some point, I got over it and gave the books a chance and soon I was a Potterhead waiting in line at midnight for that next book.

I won't bother giving a synopsis because quite frankly if you don't know the plot by now or haven't read the books you most likely never will. Confession time by the way...I've read this first book more times than I've read any other book. I've lost count but we are up in the double digits by now.

Hogwarts is like coming home for me. I read the first couple of books at least once or twice a year. It is the book equivalent of chicken soup. When everything else in my life is falling apart I can pick up the first Harry Potter book and fall right back into the world I so wish I was a part of. 

Don't get me wrong these are not perfect books and the more I read them the more I see the problems and failures of logic. But I can ignore all of that. I love these books and have gotten over the guilt I feel when I decide to read it over again versus reading a new book. Because, what is the point of having a favorite if you can't reread that favorite over and over and over and over again?

This will always be 5 out of 5 stars.
