This book took me deep into a world of Harry Potter that I didn't know existed. As a reader of Harry Potter who didn't start until after the final book had been written, I missed all of the excitement of speculation and guessing. Learning about the music, websites, interviews, conferences, etc was truly amazing and I'm thrilled this book was written. Thank you Melissa!

Wow, this is an amazing book. I love Harry Potter and the fandom. Melissa Anelli takes us on a nostalgic journey to those moments most important to Harry Potter fans. We go back to that happy and sad day when we learn the release date of the last Harry Potter book. We find out what it's like to tour with the Wizard Rock band, Harry and the Potters. We get reminded of the shipping wars and the Half Blood Prince interview with J K Rowling. But the book is so much more than that. When being taken back in time, Melissa doesn't just give us the fun stuff. We remember September 11, 2001 and our brave author comes face to face with someone trying so desperately hard to take away our books. You will cry and you will laugh. If you experienced any of this, then this is the book for you. And for the many us who've met her, whether online or in person, we know, she is awesome.

I relisten to the Harry Potter books every year - some books more often that others (*cough" I adore Deathly Hallows cough*). But I go back to this book at least once a year to relive the excitement of the reveal and to feel that growing love for the series that will exist past its creation. Melissa absolutely captures the excitement and the joy of being introduced to the series and continuing through to the "end". (I personally refuse to believe we're at the end)
I love these books and in no small way appreciate Melissa's experience. Overall, I LOVE what these books have meant for me and the world, and how they will continue to influence literary culture.
Keep doing you Jo Rowling.
