Hi all, I’m Meg and I first fell in love with the Harry Potter Universe when my third grade teacher began reading it aloud in class. That day after school I got home, snuck into my older brother Alex’s room, and stole his copy of Sorcerer’s Stone. It was the first chapter book that I ever read in a single day. The rest is history (of magic).
Each year I counted down the days for the next film or book to come out in an effort to rejoin the magic of the wizarding world. When the series ended, I thought that the magic was over. Fast forward to July 30th 2016. I had been studying Shakespeare abroad in London for a few weeks when I realized I would still be in the city for the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (which I have since seen 4 times and counting). Despite being a huge fan of the series, I had never been to a midnight release and this was my chance!
I made my way to Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station and waited with hundreds of other potterheads. It was the magical experience I had craved since I was a kid reading the series for the first time. I will never forget being there for as long as I live. It was everything I had ever imagined and more. My love for Harry Potter and the world J.K. Rowling had created was reignited. Since then I have immersed myself in the bookstagram community, and have surrounded myself with all things Harry Potter. I love to collect wands, different editions of the books, Funko Pops, and rereading/re-watching the books and films.
In everyday muggle life, I live on the east coast of the United States. I am a college graduate with a BA in Creative Writing, who somehow ended up working in accounting. I write mostly poetry and non-fiction. I am also the proud dog mom of a black goldendoodle, Bruno.
A few of my favorite book series are of course Harry Potter, A Darker Shade of Magic, and The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit. If you have any book suggestions, I will gladly take them! I love taking Harry Potter inspired photos for my bookstagram, and adding to my collection. If you love Harry Potter and want to chat or have any recommendations for me please feel free to find me on Instagram or Twitter!
