On Finishing a Good Book

We started our journey some 2 years ago. Tonight it came to an end. Harry Potter died, but didn’t die. He returned to finish Voldemort properly. It’s been quite the adventure and Crash sure did love it. So much, in fact, that he checked out The Philosopher’s Stone from the library and has started rereading the series on his own. 

So in light of sending off our best friends, Harry, Ron, Hermione and the whole Hogwarts gang, all I can think to do is leave you with some quotes about what it feels like…

But not to worry. I’ll visit them again in a couple years when it’s Bang’s turn to have them read to him. In the meantime, Crash is already wondering what we’re going to read next!

  1. Ahh! I hate finishing a good book!!! I always want to know what comes next. That’s great only if there’s a sequel. You should read The Cursed Child to Crash; it’s weird to read a screenplay, but at least you get the characters again….
    Probably finishing the HP series was the saddest I’ve ever felt finishing a book/series, maybe because it’s so long and engrossing. That or Pride & Prejudice…

    • Crash has mentioned The Cursed Child a few times now. We may try it. The 7 books of Harry make it a long series and it draws you in. I love it. And I’m so thankful Crash lives it too. Bang has already asked when I’ll read it to him! I told him when he’s 7 😁

  2. If they like dragons then Eragon is good too .I think I’m up to the last book in the series . I think is I might have read it and forgot or haven’t at all.


  3. Spoiler alert πŸ˜‰

    I might try to start this series with Little Man this summer. We started Julius Caesar together (because of the short play his class did), but that’s been a little dicey.

    Little Man has been a huge fan of Percy Jackson; that might be up Crash’s alley. I loathe Riordan’s writing style, but it seems like I’m in the minority on that.


    • I’ve seen quite a number of kids reading the Percy Jackson series. Good luck with the Potter series. I’m confident he’ll like it (or love it). Tell him Crash just finished it and has started over and is rereading them all again!

  4. Oooh yes I know this feeling all too well. It makes you feel almost lost because you just don’t know what to do next, especially if you’ve been reading a series and so have had that same companion for a long time. #blogcrush
