harry potter illustrated book

This past weekend I was able to get my hands on a gorgeous illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone book (and yes, I do have 4 different versions of the first Harry Potter book…). Have you heard about these new illustrated HP books that they will be releasing every year? I am so excited that the magic is continuing for a little bit longer. Here are some of the amazing images that can be found inside:

Aren’t they magnificent?! On another note, I have been a terrible reader this past month and have only managed to read books related to the GRE. So today’s post is going to be dedicated to books that I am interested in reading in the next month.

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling – How can I not re-read this now that I can stare at beautiful images while doing so?


2. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? By Mindy Kaling – I’ve heard so many good things about this book and it’s about time I read it!


3. Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple – another book that has been floating around and recommended a lot to me.

4. Graceling by Kristin Cashore – I’ve had this book sitting on my bedside table for literally ever (and I have a best friend who has been telling me to read it for years now – oops)

5. Paper Towns by John Green – I can’t watch the movie before reading the book! I have heard mixed reviews on the book and while I loved the Fault in our Stars (okay, while I was emotionally traumatized…) I wasn’t the biggest fan of Looking for Alaska and I still want to read more from him in the hopes of another amazing read.

Do you have any books that you’d recommend to me? I’d love to hear from you!

  1. i liked where’d you go Bernadette a lot! i heard a lot of good things about paper towns, but sadly i have to say i really did not like it. the writing was good, but the girl main character, was in my mind absolutely horrible and very unlikeable. she kind of ruined it for me. i’d be eager to hear what you think of her if you end up reading it!
