Increase Blog Followers 
Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, each of whom feature a chosen blog of the week. It is a way for blogs to gain exposure but also so you can check out and follow other blogs

If you want to take part you must follow both hosts and both featured bloggers. Then add your own link and go visit and follow some bloggers. If someone follows you, you follow back. Simple.

This weeks question:
If you could read a book for the "first time" again, which book would it be? Why?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
There are a lot of books that I think I would love the read again for the first time. Just to be able to experience the awesomeness all over again. I thought about the first Noughts & Crosses, The Hunger Games and a few more; but ultimately there is only one that can win. The Harry Potter series from beginning to end. If it were possible to go back in time and experience them all over again, I would.

I want the whole growing up with Harry Potter experience back because it was so much fun. The getting to go down to get it at midnight, and seeing all the people in costume. The year HP came out on my 14th birthday and my family surprised me with tickets to see my favourite band live - even though they had told me for months I was too young to go. That was the best birthday ever! The staying up until ridiculous o'clock in the morning, attempting to finish. Having to read at a super fast speed to beat my older sister, who had a habit of trying to ruin character deaths! 

Then I would also have the joy of discovering Harry Potter all over again. Who wouldn't want to be able to do that all over again?

    1. I've seen a lot of that but I never saw Harry & Hermione ended up together, it was always Ron & Hermione to me. I'd still recommend continuing, it's a great series :)
