It’s a sick day for me, so it’s as good a time as any to start a new feature series: Book Traveling Thursdays! Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that my fever-based delusions don’t make this post go off the rails. I think I’ve consumed enough DayQuil and seltzer water for this post to go well. I hope.
- Pick a book that you think fits the weekly theme.
- Explain why your chosen book fits the theme.

This week’s theme:
Tomorrow is World Smile Day! Choose a book that made you smile recently.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azakban – J.K. Rowling
With my project of rereading the entire series this year, I’ve really been looking forward to reintroducing myself to the magic lurking within these pages. What made me smile about PoA this go around is not only the strong feelings of nostalgia that come from reliving the first time I read these novels back in elementary school, but getting back into the feeling of things getting real for the Golden Trio once Sirius becomes a major player. The moment in which Harry and company realize that Sirius isn’t the crazed murderer everyone makes him out to be is actually quite heartwarming for me. I JUST REALLY LOVE THESE BOOKS.
