wizard rock

Wizard rock is the subject of much of my research... and it is pretty darn fun! If you are a Harry Potter fan, check out some of these bands:

Tonks and the Aurors

The Mudbloods
The Whomping Willows
The Remus Lupins
The Moaning Myrtles
Lily and James

reading list

One of my favorite things to do is read. While my reading list for research is gigantic, my reading list for fun is pretty signficant too. I have a penchant for young adult fiction - though sometimes I do read things written for grown ups - and I would like to share my favorites. Besides the Harry Potter series I love:

The Hunger Games Triology by Suzanne Collins
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan

podcasty goodness

I enjoy listening to podcasts and I really enjoy hosting podcasts. In previous years I was a cohost for a Harry Potter podcast, and now I am a cohost for a virtual reading club called The Library. The Library produces about one show per month and discusses everything from ridiculous celebrity scribes such as Kardashian Konfidential to critically aclaimed series such as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
