Thoughts While Reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Thoughts While Reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

I’ve decided to start a series of posts where I just catalog my thoughts as I read the book, so let me take the time right now to post a big, fat spoiler warning:

SPOILERS BEYOND

PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK

Well, now that we’ve got that settled, let’s begin!

Note: This is a reread for me, but I won’t be spoiling future installments.

  1. “Mr. and Mrs. Dursley of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.” How can one sentence contain so many feels?!?!
  2. Oh, Dumbledore’s obsession with lemon drops is priceless XD
  3. UGH the Dursleys are such crappy parents who knows how Harry might have turned out if they had actually cared about him?
  4. I didn’t know this before but apparently the snake Harry released is Nagini? GOOD GOING HARRY!!!
  5. “Shake em off…shake em off…” Vernon Dursley knew how the players played before Taylor ever did.
  6. Dudley so deserved that pig’s tail, go Hagrid!
  7. Hm…Quirrell…
  8. Diagon Alley is so amazing, I WANT TO GO THERE!!!
  9. And here we have the lovely Draco Malfoy, making a snazzy first impression like always. You do you Draco, you do you.
  10. Aw, I forgot Hagrid bought him ice cream, that’s so sweet!
  11. Ollivander needs to hire Andy Dwyer, pretty sure they’d have his shop redecorated in a really fun way in no time!
  12. That always gives me chills, the fact that Harry’s wand is the brother to Voldemort’s.
  13. RON!!!
  14. Fred and George never, ever fail to make me laugh out loud like honestly.
  15. Harry and Ron’s friendship is just so precious, this first meeting is adorable.
  16. SCABBERS?!?!
  17. #TheOneTimeIWillCheerForScabbers BITE HIM!!!
  18. Oh, I can’t wait for the Golden Trio to join up again!
  19. I love how ghosts just casually drift through the walls like “Oh I hope you’re in Ravenclaw, by the way I’m dead!”
  20. Have I ever said I loved Dumbledore, because I dooooooooo
  21. Interestingly enough, the first thing Snape ever says to Harry, “What would I get if I added powdered asphodel to an infusion of wormwood” translates to “I am very sorry for Lily’s death” in the flower language( or so I hear XD)
  22. Nice catch Harry!
  23. Hahaha, I love that scene where Harry’s got the Nimbus!
  24. YASSSSS HERMIONE GRANGER’S IN THE GANG NOW!!!
  25. Snape, how dare you take a book away?!?!
  26. OH MY STARS I FORGOT HOW BEAUTIFUL LEE JORDAN’S COMMENTARY IS, ALL MUGGLE SPORTS NEED A LEE JORDAN
  27. Huh…that Greek chappie Hagrid met in the pub…couldn’t have been Hades, could it?
  28. The Weasley twins are so freaking amazing they literally hit Voldemort in the face with snowballs, not even Harry’s managed that one.
  29. Oh, Christmas at Hogwarts just gives me so many feeeeeeeeelings
  30. I want a family like the Weasleys
  31. Okay, why can’t all our food give us presents I NEED THIS also I want an invisibility cloak
  32. You know, it’s frightening to think about what might have happened if Dumbledore hadn’t rescued Harry from the mirror…
  33. “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
  34. What did Dumbledore actually see in the mirror…?
  35. Neville and Ron are absolutely amazing, Neville attempted to take on Crabbe and Goyle by himself!
  36. I wonder how long the shortest Quidditch game ever is?
  37. Hagrid’s so sweet
  38. AWWWWW poor Neville risked everything to warn them!
  39. I always cringe when everyone’s icing Harry out
  40. UGH Malfoy you’re such a bully and a coward
  41. YAS FIRENZE
  42. Ron is such an underrated genius, I mean he won a game of chess made by MCGONAGALL
  43. And Hermione’s brilliant deductive skills do it again!
  44. Huh, this is so interesting because Voldemort knows so much and yet Harry knows nothing
  45. Ooh Dumbly dore know some stuff…
  46. I can’t believe how fast the year went by why isn’t real school like that
  47. Goodbye, Hogwarts! Until next time!

Thanks for going through the experience with me! Au revoir!
