Pottermore. What can I say about Pottermore? I am addicted. No fake jake, I am 100% an addict for this website and I don't think that there is a cure for it right? I do want to apologize to everyone that did not get early access, however I can tell you, when you do get in, in October, you are going to love it! That is why I thought I'd give you a sneak preview of 7 of the top things you will love about Pottermore – instantly!
So, I haven't read the books. Shoot me. I am working my way through the British versions now, but I am only on the second one. The back stories that are tucked away in Pottermore are incredible! I'm not kidding, J.K Rowling thought of everything and I swear, when you get access to Pottermore, make sure you start to read the books again, it'll be worth it!
I am a dedicated Slytherin fan. I love everything about the house – from the colors down to Draco, who I absolutely adore by the way. In Pottermore, you actually do get sorted into the houses. How do you get sorted? You have to answer about five to six questions. Once that is done, the Sorting Hat will sort you. This was super nerve wracking for me, because I wanted Slytherin so bad. Guess which house I'm in? Slytherin! It's fun to get sorted and figure out which house you might end up in!
J.K Rowling made sure, when she created Pottermore that she gave backgrounds to each and every character. I love the fact that you can read about the professors, actually know more about characters that did not show up all that much. It's a great way to expand the story a bit!
There are so many little games that you can play! Even just shopping at all of the different shops is fun. You get to pick out which pet you purchase (unfortunately, Hedwig is not available), where you go in the castle and you even get to challenge other wizards to duels. We'll get to the wizard dueling a little later though.
I so suck at making potions right now. I haven't quite gotten the jist of it yet, but eventually, I know that I'll be a pro at making potions. When you get access to this incredible site, after you are sorted, you will be able to duel wizards, create spells and finally make potions – read the directions though, it isn't easy but it's fun!
Spell class is much fun!! In the beginning, the only spell that you can do is one that shoots fire from your wand. Learning how to spell via this website though is not easy, you have to either click or use your keyboard and it can be challenging. Just keep practicing though, I promise – eventually you'll get it!
Oh, the wizard dueling! I think that this is definitely the most fun that you'll have. It's not only a way for you to find friends to challenge (because it's kind of like Facebook, you have to add friends) but you can earn House Cup points by winning! You will have to learn the ins and outs of spell class before you duel though, otherwise you'll probably lose.
Harry Potter is one of the few series that I actually love and that I remember growing up with. The movies are incredible and the way that the books are written are beautiful. J.K Rowling is one of the greatest women and the most imaginative for creating such an incredible and beautiful story. Pottermore is an extension of that story and if you don't have access yet, make sure you sign up in October! What are you guys most excited about for Pottermore? Come on, I want to know!
