Weekly Geek Quote

I first found out about Weekly Geeks through the wonderful Erika Lynn. This weeks Weekly Geek Assignment is to pull a quote a day from your favorite books. I'll hopefully be able to pull a quote a day, but I decided to post one of my all time favorites today.

"He'll be famous...a legend...I wouldn't be surprised if today was known as Harry Potter day in the future ... there will be books written about Harry -- every child in our world will know his name!"-Minerva McGonagall, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I love this quote because it really sums up the whole Harry Potter phenomenon, and it was written in the first book in the first chapter before J.K. Rowling really knew that what she was writing to be true in her wizarding world would become true in the real world too! That just amazes me every time I think about. I think that's the main reason this is my favorite quote from Harry Potter. I have a ton of other quotes I like from the series too, but there's just something really special about this one.

  3. There are so many great quotes from that series that I love but I never realized what you just said. That's a great point! Boy, if she only knew then what she was writing. She did an excellent job with that series and I was never bored during these huge books. I loved every minute of it! Thanks for bringing that up.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?

Tween Tuesday: Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

Rating: 2.5/5 Stars Genre: Magical Realism Release Date: 3/4/2010 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Polly Peabody lives on a magical farm. They grow chocolate rhubarb, it rains every Monday at exactly 1:00, and her best friend is a plant named Harry. When the rain stops, Polly's brother falls ill, and her aunt wants to sell the farm, Polly must figure out a way to save her beloved home. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Drizzle is on our state book list and one of our Chat & Chew book club picks. The kids reviews were mixed on this one and sadly, it was my least favorite of all the books we read for Chat & Chew. The kids that liked it said it had action, but for me the plot was slow and dragged too much. The book could have been edited down and I lost interest in the story. I liked the magical farm that Polly lived on, but the magic wasn't enough to hold my interest. I felt like the plot went around in circles too much and never got going. The ending was also a bit
