Let me know how you guys like it. It got horrible reviews and I never thought she was very good at writing.

I'll look into it but I don't know what to expect.

in other news, I finally bought the 8th Harry potter movie, and I've been watching the whole series all week, I hate the first one lol.

I have no fear in admitting I really enjoyed reading the Harry Potter series. I read them twice actually.

I know this won't be like those but I plan on giving her a chance before judging myself. More than anything I just enjoy reading. Alot.

I loved the Harry Potter books, I just think they were poorly written, if that makes sense. Awesome story, I just wasn't a fan of the writing.

I can't believe JK Rowling decided to write another book, this time for adults. I bet it's horrible.
Really, why? She's an author. Just because one book series ends doesn't mean she should stop writing books

I read all the HP books, some of them twice. I'm an HP nerd

I have never heard anyone say that before. Granted I only read the first three, I know quite a few people of various ages read them and live every bit of them. Books are awesome because it leaves 99% of the story/style/message up to the reader to interpret for themselves.

This is exactly right. Lets take Stephen King for example. He is widely known for his horror stories, but what happens when he says "Im going to write a drama?". Well, only one of the best written arguably in years in Shawshank.

I really enjoy the E:60 shows on ESPN but this show on Ben Petrick is unreal. I'm not much of a crier but this has me in tears.
