Disclaimer: This is not a hate thread, I love Harry.
No, the reason for me not wanting the seventh book to be released is pretty simple. I don't really want it to end - or more like, I'm not ready for it to end. I feel like its the end of an era - I have grown up with Harry Potter. I am sixteen years old now, and began reading the books in 1998. Half of my life has been spent reading these books, and constantly waiting for the next one - I have always been expecting another book, another chapter in the story, another year at Hogwarts. But after this, that's it. And I've always known there is only going to be seven books, but I mean - the final book is coming out in just under five days time, and I'm not ready for it yet. This is my childhood, and I suppose it's just a part of the whole struggling to hold onto your childhood thing.
Of course, I can't wait to find out how it all ends. I just don't think I'm quite ready to know.
