As the whole Harry Potter team wraps up the final volume of the epic wizardry series, I’m sure 9754326578192 fans are still under the OMG-HP-is-over-what-am-I-gonna-do? spell. More than ten years ago, I remember seeing hundreds of little brown paperbacks inside National Book Store’s glass shelves during one of my weekend book shopping trips. They were fresh commodities then so there’s no way I would let go of a copy.
Yes, I didn’t develop much emotional attachment with Harry
because of my love for Draco Malfoy, but thousands of blog posts and forum comments proved that HP’s ending rocked so many people’s world.
No more fancies over Accio, Stupefy, Obliviate, and other spells/curses. No more adventures that teach lessons about love, friendship, sacrifice, and loyalty. No more Harry, Hermione, Ron, and Draco (of course!). Everything’s bittersweet but it doesn’t have to end there, right? Like what I've read from the musings of other HP lovers, the memory will live on and enchant our kids, grandchildren, and so on.
If you still can’t get over HP’s ending, why not join an upcoming magical event this July 30? Let your inner kid shine in The Great Horcrux Hunt that will take place at Fully Booked's flagship store (Bonifacio High Street, Taguig)
Everyone’s free to register but during the event, only eight participants will be selected via the Book Geek Test. Upon passing the set of HP questions, a Sorting Hat will be used to group the participants into four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Clues will be given and the pair that locates the most number of Horcruxes will win an enviable stash from Fully Booked. You may view further mechanics on the event page.
If you have no time for this event, don’t worry for another HP-inspired contest is in store for you! A week ago, Cherie from Fashion CouSense invited me to join her blog’s contest wherein the prize is a brand new Harry Potter wand. Fashion CouSense is a blog for a cause maintained by three cousins.
