Remembering Potter # 1: Entering the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

It all started from here. I don’t only mean the Harry Potter classic that started this fandom, but in fact, my love of reading. I think I hinted in my previous post of how Harry Potter changed my life.

I still remember as if it was yesterday . At the time I had just turned 9. That week in school we had these exams we had to “pass”  to go to the next grade . Now let me tell you  math has never been my favorite subject and personally never will.

Math and I  have love-hate relationship . So of course that day we were laden given our math exams I began to sweat. I mean nothing would calm me down that day. Nope not even candy and juice did anything for me. And thats means something ! My friend seeing me in distress leanded me a his book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

I was so engrossed in the book I could not hear my teacher when she called, my friends to hang out. I didn’t even remember to eat! I was so into it. Lets just say I started the Harry Potter fandom at that age. I was already dressing up, “pretending” to do love potions and hang out with my best friend. A lot of kids thought we were delusional or crazy ( whichever you prefer).

I was into Harry Potter before Harry Potter was cool! Just saying.

Whats your story with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets?

  2. I need to reread the whole Harry Potter series again. It's been at least a year since my last reread, which is unacceptable (LOL).
