Okay, so we’ve truly discovered that J K Rowling is a trash bag over the last month (well, last few years, really) but I started this series and I would like ot finish it, so I will, BUT, this series will be the end of my focus on the Harry Potter series on my blog. This series and the characters mean so much to me because I read them as a child and they were the books that comforted me at that time. I will continue to read the books but, I think the series is well-popular enough without me seemingly promoting it. So, I will continue to read the books, I just won’t talk about them on my blog.
Instead of donating more money to JK Rowling by buying new sets of the series or new HP merch, consider donating to one of these organisations isntead:
