Take your time.
When I was younger my Aunty would take me to see the Harry Potter films. Let me just tell you I had no clue what they were about. Then I forgot all about them.
Then a couple of years ago my Aunty moved to the city and gave me her Harry Potter books. I put them on my shelf and once again forgot about them, and then twilight appeared.
All of my friends were in love with Twilight but I didn't particularly like it so I decided to find something to occupy myself with so while they were begging me to read Twilight I could say I was currently reading something else.
I was at the local library trying to find a good series of books to read when I stumbled across Harry Potter and then it clicked. I had the series of books I needed there the whole time so I went back home to look for them.
At first I had my doubts about it because I thought, if I hadn't read it before it must not be good but I read on anyway and within weeks I had finished the series. I then went on to the movies.
I sat myself down and watched all the Harry Potter films that had been released, my friends then dubbed me obsessed, and I was. My room started to fill with H.P Artefacts and I have a jar full of savings labelled Harry Potter Orlando trip.
I then made my friends read Harry Potter and they love it. I may be a new fan but that doesn't mean I'm not in love with Harry Potter.
