The Levels Of Being Obsessed With Harry Potter // from impartial to in love, how obsessed are you??

So, I’m obsessed with Harry Potter.

I’ve definitely lost track of how many times I’ve said this. Somewhere in the range of, I don’t know, a billion? It’s pretty much a guarantee that you’re going to find Harry Potter gifs, references, and fangirling on my blog. All of this obsessing got me thinking- how do you measure one’s obsession with Harry Potter?

Obviously, there’s not a spectrum out there that can tell you exactly how obsessed with something you are, and as far as I know, there isn’t a Harry Potter-specific one. So, me being me, I have no choice but to create this spectrum myself!

The spark of inspiration for this post came to me one night when I was about to fall asleep. I was so scared I would forget all about it that I got up from my semi-asleep state and wrote it down right away. That shows you how dedicated I am to Harry Potter. In today’s post, I’m going to list the levels (1-10) of being obsessed with Harry Potter. They start off mellow and Muggle-esque and then proceed to more obsessive waters.

This is all in good fun, and the purpose of this post isn’t to call anyone out, besides myself of course, because we all know I’m level 100 obsessed and it’s getting out of hand! So without further ado, let’s see how obsessed you are with Harry Potter.⚡️

A lot of my favorite things are in this post.

I love Harry Potter, I love collaborating with my fellow bloggers, and I love Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams! All of these are featured in today’s post, and I have to say, I’m incredibly excited and happy about it.✨

In this collab, Lily and I are giving you all book recommendations based on Harry Potter characters! Because yes, we’re obsessed. Lily is going to be guest posting in this post (I’m just here for the intro) about book recs for Hermione Granger and Luna Lovegood and on Lily’s blog, I gave recs for all the Marauders.

Blog Title - Design #1 (38)

It was an honor to work with Lily on this collaboration! If you don’t know Lily, I highly recommend that you go visit her beautiful blog and get to know her. She has the sweetest, most welcoming, encouraging personality! We’ve bonded over so many things in the fairly short time we’ve known each other through the blogosphere, and I think everyone who knows her can also speak to her angelic, kind nature.

She’s a wonderfully bright light in the community, and I’m so happy to be able to collab with her. My hope is that I can introduce some people to her and her blog because they are both truly phenomenal!

Without further ado, I’m going to hand this over to Lily, and I’ll see you all at the end of this post. 😉

5 Reasons You Should Read Harry Potter // Aka…Me Trying to Convince You All to Be Potterheads?!

I believe in a lot of things.

I believe in the innate goodness of people, love, gravity, God, the fact that my heart can be torn apart by a book… But one other (very important) thing I believe in is that everyone should give Harry Potter a chance.⚡️

In case you didn’t know about my immense (and sometimes slightly terrifying) love for Harry Potter…well, I have an immense and sometimes slightly terrifying love for Harry Potter. And I like to talk about it on my blog, a lot.

Blog Title - Design #1 (16)

In today’s post I’m going to list a few reasons that will hopefully convince you to read Harry Potter if you haven’t yet, or to reread it if you have already read it! I’m very excited for this, because screaming about Harry Potter is one of my specialties.

A Late January Recap // Harry Potter Reread (Again?!), Dancing, & Hamilton

So January happened.

And now it’s almost two weeks into February, but shhh, this recap is definitely on time. It somehow already feels as if it’s been 2019 for ten years?!

Usually January is a mediocre month, but this month was actually filled with a few wonderful things, like a Harry Potter reread (!!!), spending time with friends, and a whole lot of dancing.

Why My Favorite Character in Harry Potter is Harry Potter // ft. Screaming, Ships, & Many Gifs

I love talking about Harry Potter.

Whether I’m screaming about the plot, the characters, my ships, the movies, or the fact that I really want to get my Hogwarts acceptance letter, it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’m always talking about it in one way or another.

In typical Olivia fashion, I’ll be doing that yet again on this post. 😉 Today I’m going to be talking about a character who I think is slightly underappreciated despite being the protagonist of the entire series- Harry Potter himself.

Blog Title - Design #1 (1)

I know, I know. On the surface level, it seems like Harry does get a lot of appreciation, but when I really started to think about it, I realized that I’ve never really heard anyone say he was their favorite character. More popular answers are Hermione, Ron, and even Snape or Draco.

This makes me sad, because Harry Potter is one of my most favorite characters of all time. He is my small, sassy, lovable child and I will protect him with my life. So, I have put together a list of reasons that Harry Potter is my favorite character in Harry Potter. Disclaimer: There will not be explicit spoilers in this post, but there will be references to occurrences throughout the series. Without further rambling we all know I could ramble forever, let’s get into the post!

My One Major Problem With Harry Potter + Other Thoughts // ft. Opinions on Snape, Harry’s Flaw, & More

So. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Harry Potter.

And if you didn’t know that yet- hi, I’m Olivia and my letter to Hogwarts got lost in the mail. I usually can’t go more than a few blog posts without mentioning Harry Potter one or two or twenty times. I’ve read the books and seen the movies more times than I can count, and my Harry Potter Pinterest board has 305 pins on it.

In short, I’m obsessed.

Recently, I decided it was time for another Harry Potter reread. I went through the books, and while I still absolutely love them and the magic hasn’t left at all, I noticed some of my opinions have changed about the book as I got older.

Today I’m going to be talking about a few random thoughts I had, as well as my one major problem with Harry Potter (that I hadn’t really noticed until this reread). Let’s get started! 🙂

The Hogwarts Tag // ft. Much Love for Harry Potter

In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with Harry Potter.

The books? I’ve read them so many times I’ve lost count. The movies? I can practically quote them. But a Harry Potter tag? I have yet to do one.

Although I wasn’t technically tagged for this, I’ve seen it floating around (specifically on Lily’s lovely blog), and I just had to participate. Because guys, it’s a Hogwarts tag. 😉 Maybe after I do this I’ll finally get my acceptance letter?

5 Books That Should be Classics Someday

Classics are classic. Everyone recognizes their name, they’ve been loved for years, and they’ll be loved for years to come. They’re iconic.

I can’t help but wonder, what are the classics of the future? In 2117, what books will still be well-known? I can’t see ahead, or influence what the next generation of classics will be, but I thought it would be interesting to list a few books that I personally believe should be loved for years to come.

Series That Will Always Be My Favorites

Hey guys! 🙂 I am happy to say that I am back with a post about books!

*flings confetti*

It has been much too long, and though I have immensely enjoyed my faith-based posts and everything else, I’m glad to be writing about books again!

Today I’m going to be talking about the series that will always, always be my favorites. It’s difficult for me to answer the question, “What’s your favorite book?” …because some of my favorites are not books, but series!
