Happy Birthday JK Rowling & Harry Potter!

I know, I'm a dork, but I can't help it! My name is Alex Apostol, I'm 31 years old, and I'm still obsessed with Harry Potter! I'm sure I'm not the only one, right? Anyway, today is not only the Chosen One's birthday, but also his creator's birthday!

Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald Trailer is Out!

I've been waiting for this one for what feels like FOREVER! J.K. Rowling is by far my favorite author. The Harry Potter series has been my favorite series since I was 11 and the first book came out. I grew up with the rag-tag group of three. Now, as an adult, I get to go back to that world during a time that fascinates me with adult witches and wizards facing more adult problems!


Happy Birthday, Harry! Celebrating the Boy Who Lived With the Best Quotes

There are so many things to love about the Harry Potter series that I can't pick just one to celebrate his with. I think it is fitting to share my favorite quotes on this special day. Inspired by the Muggle Wall at last night's midnight release of The Cursed Child at B&N, I've included what the quote means to me or my reaction to it. It just goes to show how powerful literature can be in one's life. Enjoy!
