In the Wizarding World (LOL JK, I totally mean the Harry Potter Fandom), July is considered Harry Potter Month. This isn’t a fact or anything; just something I came up with, considering that HP & JKR’s birthdays fall on the last day of July. Also, that all these books & movies came out in July of the previous years. 🙂
Chamber of Secrets – 2 July 1998 (UK)
Prisoner of Azkaban – 8 July 1999 (UK)
Goblet of Fire – 8 July 2000 (UK + US)
Half-Blood Prince – 16 July 2005 (UK + US)
Deathly Hallows – 21 July 2007 (UK + US)
Order of the Phoenix – 11 July 2007
Half Blood Prince – 15 July 2009
Deathly Hallows Part 2 – 11 July 2011
A friend of mine wrote a status on Facebook recently about how it’s July already, but this time, we don’t have any more Harry Potter books/movies to look forward to. Surprisingly, I wasn’t as sad as I hoped I would be when I read that status, just because I feel that Harry Potter is still pretty much alive. JKR was right when she said that Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home. I’ve recently taken to reading my Harry Potter books again, just finished with the Sorcerer’s Stone. I plan on reading all 7 and then proceed to watching all 8 movies, HOPEFULLY BEFORE THE MONTH ENDS. THAT and finishing up repairs for Hogwarts Philippines. It’s gonna be a long month for this fangirl. Hihi.
Anyway, like I said, Harry Potter is still pretty much alive. As long as there are fangirls and fanboys around the world, it will never die. And as long as there are events like these, it will never be over. (If you’re from the Philippines like me, be sure to check these out! :D)
Hogwarts Philippines End/Start of Term Feast – July 29, 2012
You know you want to! 🙂
Harry Potter Exhibit in Singapore – until September 30, 2012
Potted Potter – August 28 to September 2, 2012
My Hogwarts Phil friends and I are seeing this when it comes out! I hope it’s as hilarious as they say it is. (Anyone here who has seen it in New York/London?)
Perks Of Being A Wallflower – September 14, 2012
Emma Watson and Logan Lerman in one movie? OHMYGOSH MY FANDOMS. :)) Are you as excited as I am to see this???
The Casual Vacancy – September 27, 2012
This isn’t Harry Potter anymore but it’s still a book by our beloved author. I’m excited to find out what this is about! 😀
Oh yeah, and Slytherin won the House Cup on Pottermore. I am so proud (although I am a Ravenclaw)! Hihi. I haven’t logged in to Potterm0re for a VERY long time. I heard Chamber of Secrets is about to open and Slytherin gets first dibs.
OF COURSE THEY GET FIRST DIBS, THEY’RE PRACTICALLY HEIRS. :))
Any other big Potter news that’s happening this year that I haven’t heard about? And will there be any events in Los Angeles/New York in September? IS DANIEL RADCLIFFE STILL IN NEW YORK? IS EMMA WATSON GOING TO BE IN LOS ANGELES FOR THE PREMIERE OF PERKS? Tell meeeee. :))
