I hope everyone’s August is going swimmingly as the summer winds down, and people return to school. Let’s take a look back at one of my personal favorite novels, and one that’s perfect for anyone starting a new school or a new school year. I am, of course, talking about Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone/Philosopher Stone. For your reading soundtrack, we’ve got the ideal playlist to go with it. Let’s dive in.
I do feel that I need to back up the Bruce Springsteen-heavy list! Firstly, the first chapter of Book 1 is entitled “The Boy Who Lives” and Voldemort is always present. Second, Harry is “Born to Run” and is trying to stay one step ahead of Voldemort. Finally, “Brilliant Disguise” perfectly describes Quirrell. It’s a match made in heaven!
