Christmas has Arrived in Harry Potter World

Spend Christmas in the Wizarding World With no classes or homework, Holiday Break is one of the best times to marathon every Harry Potter film - or even take a trip to Hogwarts itself. This year the Wizarding World is celebrating the holidays with Christmas decorations, special merch and even a night time projection show on the castle walls. From Nov. 24, 2017 through Jan. 7, 2018, "Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" is spreading through both the Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley sections of the park. "The quaint town of Hogsmeade village shines brightly with decor uniquely themed to each of the individual storefronts," says Universal. "As night falls on Hogsmeade village, the 'Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle' will illuminate Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with colorful imagery and impressive dimensional animations that dance across Hogwarts castle in tandem to a musical arrangement from the Harry Potter movies." You can also listen to seasonal songs performed by the a cappella Frog Choir, try some holiday-themed food, and of course, you stop by the Three Broomsticks or the Leaky Cauldron for a cup of Butterbeer. The festivities have already begun so, naturally, fans have been sharing Instagram that make you wish you were celebrating Christmas at Hogwarts this year.

It was action packed and funny. My favorite characters are probably all the main characters. Mike always makes me laugh and reminds me of one of my friends. Jack is hilarious. His smart-aleck responses are very comical. Maggie is very relatable, she sometimes reminds me of myself. I would recommend this book to many people who are looking for a book with a combination of mystery, laughter, and expression family love (without making it too cheesy).

Book Review: The Glittering Court

The Glittering Court: Three Girls Finding Freedom & True Love The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead is now officially one of my favorite books. When I saw it pop up somewhere on Goodreads, I immediately searched it elsewhere and clicked on its Amazon link. As soon as I read “The Selection meets Reign," I literally closed the tab in giddy shock. I was so happy… Something being compared to The Selection (my all-time favorite series) had to be amazing. Maybe not as amazing, but definitely worthy of my reading time. Taking a deep breath, I re-opened the tab and read the few pages of the excerpt. I instantly fell in love (it was insta-love), and was researching everything I could about it. Later that very same day I was ticking off the days to The Glittering Court’s sweet release. A week or so later I went to the bookstore in search for it…only to ask one of the people working there to find out it was not yet in stock. I opted for a HarperTeen YA/Dystopia thing that I shall not name due to its horribleness (I don’t want ya’ll searching it). Oh, and guess what? It was the second book in the series anyway. Me and my luck. I soon returned it in exchange for…The Glittering Court! The Glittering Court is set to be a trilogy, with each book following three very different yet similar girl. The Glittering Court is a school slash business venture, used to transform impoverished girls to become well-suited for wealthy marriages in the New World, Adoria. This first book follows

Book Review

Horse Sense: Together Against The Bullies This book is really fascinating! It shows the friendship between Jamie a young boy and Acorn a horse. Things got out of hand with Jamie and Acorn. Their lives became upside down. But when they forgave each other, things changed between them and everyone involved. My review: I rate the story 5-stars for it's uniqueness of friendship. Really inspiring. This is great advice for friends and families.
