“Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter ‘H’.”
Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin! (Goodreads)
Hello, bookworms! December is finally here! How are you all doing? I had been feeling under the weather in the last couple days, but I finally got over my persistent cold! My sore throat has gone and my nose is no longer stuffed up! I’m almost back to normal self. Yay 🙂 That said though, I can’t let my guards down; everyone around me in the office seems to have caught a cold, all I hear is sniffing and sneezing or murmuring that they have a terrible headache or something.
Anyways, regarding my reading, due to my cold and it being the end of the year – a.k.a the busiest time of year – I had to do a lot of overtime work and didn’t get to read much. That said though, I think it’s high time I gave you some reading updates, so without further ado, here we go!

But did one of them commit murder for an inheritance?
Kellan’s back in his second adventure since returning home to Pennsylvania. With his personal life in upheaval and his new boss, Myriam, making life difficult, will he be able to find a killer or will he get caught up in his own version of stage fright? (Goodreads)
