Happy 2016! I thought a literary related post would be the best way to begin the year – especially since I haven’t done one of these in ages!
If you’re new to this books into fashion series, you can catch up with the others HERE.
I was shocked and awed that I had NEVER done a post on Harry Potter yet! I’m definitely a late comer to the HP world, but I fell in love with it. I’m contemplating reading the series a second time now. Poor Harry goes from being an abused orphan to a pretty cool wizarding student by the end of that first book. I’m definitely team Gryffindor over here.
I’ve been making a bigger effort to finally read the original books of movies I love. So Matilda was one of them. It’s not my first Roald Dahl book, so the hilarity was just as expected. But it was just enough different than the movie that I still loved it. Matilda grows up with some rotten and tacky parents, that are more into watching TV and eating TV dinners than nurturing her. It’s not until she discovers books, and eventually Ms. Honey at school that she begins to bloom. Only that mean Trunchbull is in the way.
Have you (or not) read these books before? Did you love them just as much as I did?! :)
