I finished it!

A few hours ago, I finished the final book in the Harry Potter series.


Just some of the words that come to mind at this moment: joy, satisfaction, grief, love, and exhaustion. What a ride. Additionally, as if the book itself wouldn't have been enough, the epilogue was the best part of the whole series - what a treat! Rowling is truly a gifted artist.

It has been so long since a book has made me cry so hard at its completion. The ending of the book (and I am trying so hard not to give anything away) was just perfect, and I couldn't stop the tears from flowing - what a beautiful choice!

Now, excuse me, as I go savor this feeling a little while longer. Or, maybe, I might go start back at book 1 and re-read all seven books. That would be awesome right now :)

What did you think of the book??

I'm with you--I creid and cried and cried--I am not ashamed to admit it. I thought it was a brilliant ending to an even more brilliant series. She is a genius!

It's almost the ending I imagined. Without spoiling...I saw Harry differently at the end.
