I find it hard to name the one book that was so damn delightful it changed my life. The truth is, they have all changed my life, every single one of them—even the ones I hated. Books are my version of “experiences.” I’m made of them.

Bloomsbury Children’s Books revealed the complete set of new Harry Potter covers today! They’re so beautiful. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite, if you couldn’t tell. They’re published on 1st September in paperback and hardback, and illustrated by Jonny Duddle.

"Alyson came in and I remember thinking ‘Aah! Girlfriend! Finally!’ Her favourite story that she tells about how busy and crazy I was, is when she got her tonsils out and I picked her up at the hospital and brought her home and she was supposed to only have yogurt but I didn’t have time to buy any because I was so busy, so I took all the yogurt from my refrigerator - ‘cause I eat yogurt - to her house and she called me the next day and I guess all the yogurt had like, super expired. And Alyson said ‘Are you trying to kill me?’"
