I have been reading the Harry Potter series over the summer. I started the Philosophers Stone a few weeks before the end of school in June and I just finished The Deathly Hallows this week.
The Harry Potter series are the best books that I have ever read and I’m going to be blogging about some of my favourite things about the books over the summer. This post is dedicated to Quidditch and the first book in the Harry Potter series, The Philosophers Stone.
Harry Potter gets chosen as the seeker in his first year at Hogwarts. All of his team have been there longer than he has, and his team mates are Wood, Katie, Angelina, Fred, George and Alicia.
The first game that Harry plays as a seeker is against Slytherin and as Ron and Hermione watch the game, they realise that the game has been enchanted and someone is trying to hurt Harry. So Harry has to play a very tough game while Hermione thinks that Professor Snape has cursed the game and sets his cloak on fire.
Harry doesn’t know about the game being cursed but he is the best player in the game and he winds up catching the snitch (in his mouth!).
I really liked this first book because it made me want to read the second one. Quidditch is one of my favourite things about the Harry Potter books and Harry Potter becomes a better player every year.
