Muggle Musings | The Big Comfy Book Shop | Coventry

Welcome fellow potter heads, now if you're not familiar with the chocolate frogs and the hippogriffs of the wizarding world, then what on earth do you watch for a magical movie marathon. I've recently started reading the books as I never got around to it and just fell in love. They are miles better than the films and I can see why everyone was complaining. At the time I was like 'oh just enjoy the film'. Now I am there with you, wand in hand demanding extended cut scenes.

My friend Amy who writes over at the fabulous Writing into the Ether set up a Harry Potter discussion group, I was very anxious and kept trying to talk myself out of going but I grabbed my lady balls, did my make up and went. I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb a bit as I didn't think and was pretty much the only one not rocking Harry potter related clothing but I will certainly be wearing it next time. 

The Big Comfy bookshop is certainly my teenage selfs dream place, I wish it was around when I was younger. I can see myself going here a lot more. It has piles and piles of books for sale in a quaint shop with a lot of character. The food and drink from what I had were lovely but everything looked amazing. If you are in Coventry or visit, you should certainly go there for an afternoon. You wouldn't be disappointed. 

This month the topic was magical creatures, I'm an animal lover anyway, magical or ordinary so I was ecstatic. One of my favourite scenes has got to be with Buckbeak flying around with Harry and knocking Malfoy on his feet, perfection! The conversation flowed perfectly, even when people had a difference of opinion it was discussed in a friendly way and there was no conflict. I didn't contribute that much due to the previous mentioned anxieties but I enjoyed it nevertheless. 

Nearing the end of the meeting Amy organised very well, a little quiz with Harry Potter trivia cards, it was so fun and got people talking more and having a laugh. Amy organised the group perfectly and I couldn't be happier that I went along, enjoyed my camomile tea and carrot cake while discussing the much loved magical world of Harry Potter. 

After the group so many of the fellow attendees mentioned they also were having some anxieties about coming along but are so happy they did, myself included. We all seem to be chatting and friendly now. I can't wait for the next group, it is certainly helping me get out of my comfort zone.

Have you ever been to anything like this? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below!
