Hi MWTR, glad to see I have a fellow Hufflepuff teammate! :) Should be a fun challenge.

Hello! Thanks for Stopping by my blog and letting me know you are on Team Hufflepuff. I know what you mean about The Hunger Games, it was amazing and there is no way the other two can be as good. I run a face to face bookclub at the end of the month and we'll discuss it and then I'm diving right into the second. (would have read the second sooner if I didn't need to lead the discussion and have all the details fresh in my mind!) Go Hufflepuff!

Congrats! You won the Perfect Mini Challenge You have won a House Pin. Send me an email to bunnitaz@hotmail.com with Hogwarts Challenge in the subject so I know it's you let me know what House you would like as it doesn't have to be Hufflepuff.

Bunnitaz said...

Yes you can read the Harry Potter books for the 7 books in a series. For those who don't want read or re-read the HP books can read a different series. The requirement is only that the 7 books have to be in one series or its spin-off.
