The Next Harry Potter

Did you go to see the Harry Potter movie? I did! Yeah!

The movie was good. Really good. To be honest I wasn't expecting it be that good. They managed to stick and follow the storyline according to the book. Of course in two and half hours you can't expect them to fit the whole story in but as a part 1 it was good. I was so disappointed from the last movie and how poor it was done compared to the book that I wasn't sure I wanted to go to see it. But who am I kidding? Of course I went. 

I really enjoyed the movie and I wanted to share it with you and share some other exciting news too!

Are you wondering about the next Harry Potter movie? It may seem soon since the movie just came out (part 1) and we have the rest of it to wait until July but many are speculating about the next 'big movie', throwing book titles out there like candies confusing us, exciting us and disappointing us. Some of them have actually been put into fast forward but nothing guarantees us though that they will actually be turned into movies. Some of them are mostly likely and I can't wait to see the results.

Seeing all these great books makes me feel bad since the only books I have read are the Mortal Instruments (I need to catch up!) but the rest are all on my TBR list.

What do you think? Is the next Harry Potter among these books?

I can't wait to see Harry Potter and I am number four. I am one of Alex's fan since his first movie and I hope I won't be disappointed. :D

The movie was great! And yeah I like Alex too, he's such a hotie but I started liking him when I read the City of Bones. There is a character looking just like him! At least in my head lol!
