“Now, you listen here, boy,” he snarled, “I accept there’s something strange about you, probably nothing a good beating wouldn’t have cured — and as for all this talk about your parents, well, they were weirdos, no denying it, and the world’s better off without them in my opinion…”

I was feeling nostalgic, so decided J. K. Rowlings’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone would do for this week’s pick.

From Goodreads:

“Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He’s never worn a Cloak of Invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry’s room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn’t had a birthday party in ten years.

But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that’s been waiting for him… if Harry can survive the encounter.”

  1. Aaah now you’ve made me nostalgic! I used to read these books in German so maybe I should now read them all in English! That sounds like a good thing to do with my summer, no? Thanks for sharing 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!
