A Christian reading Harry Potter… whaaaat?!

The funny thing about Harry Potter is that  there’s a lot of talk about how bad it is.

My husband and I had both never so much as watched a movie, and decided that we’d give it a try. We were skeptics, searching for demons and pentagrams and seances.

But low and behold, movie after movie… none of these appeared. We finished all 8, turning to each other slowly, wondering what all the fuss was about?!

So, because over the past few weeks I’ve been taking a more objective look at my reviews, I thought what a perfect mainstream series to dive into.

For today, we’ll just focus on the Indie Bestseller that is Wonder-

Genre: Children’s Literature

Swearing: Unfortunately, 7 uses of God’s name in vain. (Well, in any copy that’s not mine. Thank you, pen.)

Synopsis: A boy attends school for the first time in his life. Also he’s had a billion surgeries before he even turned ten.

Mini Book Review: If you don’t at least tear up while reading this- you aren’t human!

Inappropriate content: Not a single thing.

Rating: 📚📚📚📚📚📚of 8 (Eight points=Creative story idea, dynamic for it’s genre, easy to read, enjoyable, strong lead characters, good villain, believable and shipable romance, overall execution)

***To be fair, this book didn’t have any villains or romance persay. It deserves the full eight for realistic conflict and the fact that he has such a healthy relationship with his parents.

I am wonderstruck. I am in awe. It’s been so long since I’ve read a book I so genuinely love. It is truly… wonderful. 😂
