All Potty!!!

Just got back... and am settling in with my little surprise that I want to share with you guys.

My sis got a copy of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows when it began selling, and dia da baca abih.

So when I got back tonight, as expected and promised by my lovely sis, it was there on my bed, just waiting for me to devour it page by page.

Aku nak baca cepat so that I can review it for those of you yang lom get the book (ker lom download ebook versi cetak rompak)... but at the same time, aku nak take my time nak hayati the whole story, since this is the last book.

Aku da follow the first six so religiously sampai takleh enjoy the movie versions, that this, is the culmination.. the finale... of my Potter mania!

Honesly, as I'm flipping the pages (607 flipping pages!!!! DAMN THIS IS GOING TO BE GOOD!!!), I'm honestly excited as all hell.

Ok.. fine... I can't brag about reading too many good books, cause I don't have the time. The only releases I bother with are from my favourite writers like Amy Tan (she makes me cry!), Bill Bryson (my inspiration for bitchiness) and Sophie Kinsella (with her bimbo shopaholic series which I absolutely adore!!! It's about me!!!).

And of course J.K. Rowling's Potter series. So this will be one of the few books I've read in 2007!
Took a quick shower, prepared light meal (because it's so late da, takleh makan banyak kang tambah buncit), chilled Coke (and yes, the real kind of soda, not anything else you'd allow yourself to think with the bottle of Absolut there) and a pack of my Marlboros, and here I am.. off on the last journey for Harry Potter and Co.

But my excitement comes from the staggering reviews I've had from people who have read the book. Everyone agrees it's virtually a bloodbath, and bloody emo (to quote my sis especially), so it should be packed with enough action and drama to keep me up all night.

Aku habis baca malam ni jer, esok awal pagi I'll post a review AND spoilers (tapi aku akan blank out so sapa yang nak baca je akan baca) for those yang betul betul yak sabar nak tau what goes on in the book. Of course, the obvious question is, will Harry live? Erm... sebab aku da dapat spoiler dari pihak yang tak bertanggungjawab... the surprise there is gone... but I'll leave it to tomorrow to review the rest.

Now... on to my ciggys, my Coke... and my Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows.

PS - For those of you who want to download the ebook yang unauthorised tuh, be warned that there are apparently fake versions out there, so mana tau kang korang susah susah download baca tuh, is not the real thing. You have been warned!
