It is has been said that Canadians are nice and if you get to know Liz from Midnight Bloom Reads you will know this to be true. In the early months of our blogging we needed to find a correspondant for the Indigio Teen Read Awards. When we asked Liz she was more than happy to share her thoughts with us. After the event she wrote us up a wonderful post and provided us with some incredible author photos. Since then we have been eager to have Liz back and here she is! Read below to find out which series made Liz into the book lover she is today...
**********When I think about my favourite books as a child, the Harry Potter series is immediately brought to mind. As a child, I grew up reading tons of fairy tales and other short stories, but the only novels I read were Star Wars-related. Seriously! I have tons of middle grade Star Wars novels but the series that really got me to broaden my horizons outside of science fiction was without a doubt J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.
Her novels helped inspire the crazy passion I have for books today … and it all started with Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, when J.K. Rowling first took her readers on a journey into a magical world where anything could happen. It was definitely the beginning of something wondrously good!
I think I was supposed to focus on the one book but I couldn’t help myself! I guess you could say that everything related to Harry Potter brings on a major gush fest. With so many memorable characters such as Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, and of course, the evil Lord Voldemort, to only name a few... this is a series that will be forever cherished for so many readers of all ages for many years to come.
