The Harry Potter Project: The Chamber of Secrets

September 30, 2014

  Book two, done!  This book was better than the first one, because I couldn’t remember what happened.  The first book was slow for me.  I could have finished it much quicker, but I knew what was going to happen from watching the movies.  The normal sense of urgency from wanting to know what happens […]
