I was amongst the fray of Potter fans at the midnight showing of Harry Potter. Before the movie even started I saw the golden snitch, Voldermort, Bellatrix and a number Hogwarts students. I see people take this movie to the extreme. There were so many people there that all 16 movie theatres were open to show the movie, WOW!! The movie I thought was cute and funny, except of course the part about Dumbledore. I found it interesting that the writers could make such a sad book, funny. My favorite scenes have to be of Ron Weasley and Harry, hilarious. Overall I really enjoyed the movie.

I am always reading something. At the moment I just finished the Summoning by Kelley Armstrong, and guess what it's another series. I will be starting the second book the Awakening soon, but I have homework and things to finish before I can truly delve into. Okay so not really, I love to read so I will find time to read a page or two. Anyhow this book was interesting, it also deals with the supernatural theme I seem to be fascinated with. The main character Chloe Saunders the heroine, of course can see ghosts and raise the dead. I usually get freaked out by stuff like this every since I read a scary book when I was younger, may have possibly been an R.L. Stine book, I used to love those. I don't even watch scary movies, so you count me out for horror nights. But this book drew me in and it intrigued me just a bit about how the character is dealing with the realization that she has this ability. In the beginning of the book we find her as a child seeing beheaded ghosts and one that has hung himself in the basement of her home, so her family moves and the story continues to her in high school and she had not had an episode in years, then all of a sudden she sees a ghost at school and freaks. Her family then sends her to this home for disturbed kids to help them get better. But what she finds there is truly interesting.
