Harry Potter books have always been prevalent in society, everyone was (and is) reading them, but not me.
The first Potter film was brought out in 2001, when I was six years old. My mum and stepdad thought this was the perfect movie to take me too – it was not. The Centaur came on screen and I began bawling my eyes out, so much so we had to leave the cinema. This started my hatred for ALL Harry Potter books.
Anytime I mention the fact that I haven’t watched any of the films or read a single one of the books, I am met with a look of disdain like you would not believe. It’s almost as if I have said I don’t eat food and only drink water all day. Like I am refusing to conform to society. But let’s be honest, they aren’t all that.
