Have I ever mentioned that Lily/James is one of my biggest ships ever? The Marauders era is probably the time period I’m most fascinated with. I barely do anything Harry Potter related, but I’m going to try to do more in the future :)

“Imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I’d leave, wouldn’t you?

—Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Ch. 5, Diagon Alley

“Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I’d leave, wouldn’t you?”

—James Potter, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ch. 33, The Prince’s Tale

…Rowling sure loves those parallels huh

(narrorated by the lovely Stephan Fry)

No story lives unless someone wants to listen…

The stories we love best do live in us forever.

So whether you come back by page or by the big screen,

Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

Harry Potter AU where Carlos shyly shows Cecil his lion Patronus when they sneak onto the grounds one night, and Cecil smugly prepares to show him his own majestic creature and is speechless when a beautiful, lithe lioness bursts into existence. 

Hi potterheads! Every since I was a little kid, I haven’t been much of a reader. The ideal solution for me was to listen to audiobooks! That’s how I fell in love with the Harry Potter series. Since we lost our stash of downloaded files, I have been looking around for free versions of the Harry Potter books to listen to. As most of you will know, the books as read by Steven Fry are quite expensive. 

The audiobooks I’ll be linking you to are read by Jim Dale. He narrated the series Pushing Daisies, in case his name sounds familiar. I have no problem with this, because I listened to his reading of the Prisoner of Azkaban as a kid and absolutely loved him.

The books are on youtube and in huge chunks (usually about 9-10 hours), but it’s honestly better than nothing!!! Without further ado, here is the playlist to all the books!

I hope I’ve helped some of you in your search for some free audiobooks! Happy listening! :-)

GUESS WHO FINALLY STARTED HARRY POTTER?! Me! I listened to the audiobook back in January and my review is finally up.

I also wonder what would have happened if Cedric had been more selfish? What if Cedric had listened to Harry and just grabbed the Triwizard Cup? He obviously still would have been killed but I wonder what Voldemort’s reaction would be? He couldn’t do much since he would still be in his ugly baby-like form. Would Crouch Jr. just have grabbed Harry and ran?! How long would it have been until Voldemort got another opportunity??? I JUST HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS WHEN I LISTEN TO THE AUDIOBOOKS AS I FALL ASLEEP EVERY NIGHT!!
