Meme: Teaser Tuesdays #6 - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser Tuesday people! It's Teaser Tuesday time and I my teaser is from a book you probably all know and have read... 

"Harry's heart gave a horrible jolt. A test? In front of the whole school? But he didn't know any magic yet - what on earth would he have to do?"
page 86, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Okay, as hard as this may be to believe I am not re reading this book.. I have never read the Harry Potter books. (Shock! Horror!) So after a lot of people refusing to talk to me because of this fact and my curiousity about what it is that makes Harry Potter so amazing I am now currently reading the first HP book for the very first time. My expectations are so high and I'm nervous that I won't like it but at the moment I'm really enjoying it and I have a good feeling about this series. 

So... enough about me, what about you? Is there anybody else who has never read Harry Potter? If you are, comment below and join my cult ;) Or are you, my friends, "Potterheads"? If so please do tell me what you like so much about Harry Potter AND what is your favourite book in the series? 

Feel free to also leave your teasers or links to your own Teaser Tuesdays in the comments below, I'd love to see them all. 
Until next time... buh-bye!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my TT!

    I can't believe you have never read them. I'm a Potterhead :P Favorite book in the series would have to be Goblet of Fire, Triwizard Tournament was pretty awesome.

  2. I really hope you enjoy it because they are GREAT books. I was late getting into reading them but they are worth the read.

    My teaser is here:

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Harry Potter. The books grow progressively darker and more convoluted as the story goes on and Harry and his friends grow up. Everyone in this world is just so REAL. That would have to be my favorite thing about the books. That Harry, Ron, Hermione and even the minor characters were so well fleshed out and felt so much like normal, everyday people who just happened to be in an extraordinary situation. Beautiful books that I will always love. I really hope you enjoy them!!!

  4. I echo Allison - I hope you enjoy the series, it's one of my favourites! My favourite is Prisoner of Azkaban. Have you seen the movies? I started reading Harry Potter convinced it was just a lot of hype and I read the first three books in four days...I was wrong!

    My teaser is here
