Harry Potter Month: My HP Bucket List

Harry Potter Month is hosted by Faith at Geeky Zoo Girl and Micheline at Lunar Rainbows Reviews. This awesome event runs all through July, and you can find more information about it here.

While trying to come up with some Harry Potter Month post ideas because, as usual, I waited until HP Month actually started to begin thinking about HP Month, LOL, I realized that I actually have a few Harry Potter-related life goals. Some of these are pretty simple, while some need a bit more effort to achieve, but a Potterhead can dream, can't she?

  1. Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: OK, so in theory this one is pretty easy because I live about 45 minutes away from Universal Studios in Orlando. The main obstacle has been the cost; even with a Florida resident discount, tickets are not in my budget at the moment. Hopefully one day I'll save up enough to go.
  2. Own a Harry Potter mug: I like collecting coffee/tea mugs, and somehow, I do not have an HP one in my small yet steadily growing collection.
  3. Take the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London: Visiting England is on my non-HP bucket list, and if I ever get to go, I'd love to bask in all of the Harry Potter awesomeness that this tour offers.
  4. Attend a Harry Potter convention: I went to a local-ish comic con a few years ago, and it was a lot of fun. I can only imagine how amazing an all-HP con would be!
  5. Marathon watch the films: I'm talking one after another after another, (almost) straight through to Deathly Hallows, Part 2, with bathroom/food breaks as needed. And maybe a nap or two. XD
  6. Binge reread the books: Every year I tell myself that this is going to be the year that I read all seven books in a row, but sadly, it still hasn't happened. I can't even remember when I last read the series. It's been far too long, and out of all of the goals I've listed here, this is the one that I'm absolutely determined to reach!

Do you have any HP-related goals?


  1. Groupon has some HP mugs, I wanted the cauldron but it sold out!!

    I'd love to visit Universal again and just hang out at Knockturn Alley, such a cool place! I hope you get to visit soon!

    My BF & I are thinking of going to the symphony where the orchestra plays the soundtrack while The Sorcerers Stone is being played. Not sure yet, I'm hoping Groupon will do a deal so the tickets are cheaper. We'll see...

    1. I'm definitely going to have to check out those mugs! Guess what Lee's getting for Christmas? XD

  2. I hope you get to go to Wizarding World of Harry Potter; it's just as magical as you imagine it would be. :) Also, never in a million years did I think I'd ever get to go to Leavesden Studios but I really hope you do because it's overwhelmingly magical.
    I'd love to spend time binge reading the books again, I haven't done that in ages. And believe it or not I've never binge-watched the movies. One of these days I'm going to give a good shot though!
    What a great list, I hope you get to do everything on it!

    1. Lee and I are going to have to shut ourselves away for a weekend so that we can binge watch the movies together. We'll live off of coffee and chocolate frogs. XD

  3. I don't have a HP mug either! With all the geeky mugs I have - and mugs in general - that's where my collection is lacking :D I want the Marauders Map one that colour changes and probably like 10 more LOL! I definitely want to see the Wizarding World when I actually stop being so poor XD Same goes for the WB Tour in London ♥

    I reread all the books last year but I wanted to do it again this year but with our move it just didn't happen. Binging the movies did though but limited to one a day hahaha

    1. I'd also really like the chance to reread the whole series, but I totally get how difficult it is! XD Too bad life doesn't have a pause button where you can spend like a whole week reading without having to be bothered.
