House Cup Results 2016

Another year...gone!  I wanted to do a bit of a recap of the highlights of this year's Harry Potter Month so I hope you'll indulge me and join in on one last Potter-themed post...before we get to announcing the results for the House Cup!

Every year that we have Harry Potter Month, it reminds me of how this story will live on in so many people.  I want to thank every single person who participated again this year and helped make this another successful Harry Potter Month.  Whether you joined in on the House Cup or simply kept up to date on our goings on by reading, commenting, thank you.

I want to thank Harry Potter Month creator, my dear friend Faith for hosting the event again this year, and for coming up with the idea in 2014. I look forward to July now all year long for the chance to share the Potter love with everyone so inclined. Thank you for inviting me to co-host with you last year and again this year. It's been brilliant ♥

This year was my first year rereading the books for Harry Potter Month - and indeed, my first reread since 2011.  I can't think of a more rewarding experience. I laughed, I cried, I lived through all of Harry's trials and adventures with him.  Unfortunately, real life got in the way a bit and I was only able to read through the first 5 books - OotP is so freaking long, it's almost 2 books on it's own! Never fear though, I jumped right into HBP for Harry's birthday and will go on with my series reread...until the very end. For those interested, I'll be updating my book reviews for the series on GR once I'm done! (For anyone interested)

The bottom line is that July IS Harry Potter Month for me - but the magic is far from over. I look forward to discussing The Cursed Child, Fantastic Beasts and all the new Potter material with you all as comes out. And, as always, you're all welcome to keep the magic going with our weekly Harry Potter Moment MEME posts :) Both Faith and I are already looking forward to having the event again next year - and to be honest, I've already started writing down ideas for 2017!! Alright...on to the good stuff:
