Running Press, which released a fun collectible Quidditch set last year, is back with more “Harry Potter” goodness!
MuggleNet’s global book club, “Alohomora!”, continues its re-read of the “Harry Potter” series. It’s time to return to Dumbledore’s office for the second lesson involving the story of Yyoung Tom Riddle! Join Kat, Rosie, Eric, and special guest author Melinda Salisbury as they discuss Dumbledore’s actions and meet the future Lord Voldemort for the first time, in a discussion covering Chapter 13 of “Half-Blood Prince”, “The Secret Riddle.”
As any “Harry Potter” fan can attest, the biggest anxiety you face is trying to figure out which parts of the book are going to be cut from the movies. Generally, you understand that certain things need to be changed for the screen, but you can almost always assume that the most important moments will be included, partly, or hopefully, in their entirety. This is why “Half-Blood Prince” was such a huge disappointment for me. Of course, I will always watch it because it’s a “Harry Potter” movie, and the movie itself is not a bad movie, but there are three aspects that I think should have been included.
Do you know that feeling of anxiety and dread, when the world weighs a ton, and you just don’t know what to do? When you feel so stressed because of work or homework, and there’s just so much noise in your head that you can’t physically concentrate? It makes you wish you had a Pensieve where you could pour all those annoying thoughts and memories and make sense out of the chaos they create in your mind.
