The one where I finally saw Harry Potter

We had a day off together and pencilled in a trip to the movies to see the final HP movie.

I decided to go with a green theme - green dress and green eyeshadow and be brave and show my tattoo off <3

I have a love/hate relationship with the HP movies as I am a book lover to the core.  I first discovered the novels through my lil sister when she was just 8 years old and I have devoured them ever since.  I was a total geek when the new editions came out and lined up at midnight on several occasions to buy the books and read them that night!

I have never really been as bowled over by the movies to be honest, but as this was the final episode we figured we should see it at the movies.  I enjoyed it - I did shed a few tears of course, but I wasn't blown away by it.... I know that they have to condense/change parts for the big screen but I will always choose the books over the movies....

Some other books I prefer to the tv/movie version:

True Blood: I totally love the books the show is not quite the same
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
The Twlight Saga
The Northern Lights trilogy

In fact make that any book that has been made into a movie.....

Speaking of books I have found my inner reader again {thank goodness} and have devoured a few books recently:

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
Something Borrowed and something Blue by Emily Griffin
The midwives confession by Diane Chamberlain

Have you read any good books lately?
