March - 4

April - 5

Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling - Okay - so this was the first book that I committed myself to reading when I have already seen the movie. Normally, I cannot read a book once I've seen the movie (i.e. I to this day cannot read Emma because I saw the movie...and then also "Clueless". This is a sad fact, I know). I started this book and ended up finishing "I am Legend" (attempt 2 at reading a book after seeing the movie). Two good things here, I Am Legend is so different from the movie I ran into NO problems whatsoever and I saw the first Harry Potter movie so long ago that I wasn't sitting here thinking, "Goodness I know what's going to happen already just get there!" I remembered enough to picture it in my head with little to no effort, but forgot enough that I found it enjoyable.

P.S. I am trying to finish all seven books before the last movie comes out (Thanks for the challenge Evan!)

The Book of Mormon by The Hand of God - I double checked this one with Gretel to see if it counts, she said that all the standard works would count as their own - yay! I have no critque on this one. All I have to say is that I get something new from it everytime!

Broken Things to Mend by Jeffrey R. Holland- Such a good book! Of course, Holland is one of my favorites so I am a little biased. I really loved the chapter about the power of words.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling - I might be a little bit addicted.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling - Okay, maybe A LOT addicted.

Uh, it's okay to be addicted to Harry Potter. I wanted to resist when it was popular a long time ago, then finally gave up to see what the fuss was about and...well, JK Rowling is a genius. The books are made for adults too, which I love. I promise, they are better than the movies & actually explain a lot that you might have been wondering about in the movies. So that should help you in watching them...maybe?
