Favorite Moments From The Sorcerer’s Stone

I recently finished listening to the Harry Potter and Sorcerer’s Stone audiobook and of course loved every nostalgic minute of it. Since it has been a very long time since I first read the books, going back was a whole new experience. And I wanted to share some of my favorite moments from going through this story a second time.

The trip to Diagon Alley with Hagrid

It’s probably one of the most magical parts of the series, traveling through the magical brick wall into the bustling Diagon Alley. Hearing about all of the magical shops, Gringotts, and meeting various characters is easily a favorite part of the series for everyone. Also, Hagrid is my not-so-secret favorite character, so when he is around I am happy.

Sorting Hat Ceremony

Unlike in the film, the book goes through many more students as we listen to them being sorted into their respective houses. We also listen to the Sorting Hat speak and explain the houses. It’s more of that background that I love in the early books in the series.


Hagrid all of the time. ALL OF IT.

Hagrid is my favorite character easily. Of course, I love Hermione and all of the great female characters, but Hagrid has a special place in my heart. So every second of Hagrid made me happy.



All of the Tasks

The tasks to get to the stone are one of the most interesting parts of the book, especially when you get all of them like the potions task. It also gets to show off Ron and Hermione’s skills more.

What are your favorite parts of the first book? Let me know in the comments.

  3. Love these moments but also mirror of Erised, the boys saving Hermione from the troll and the classic ‘yer a wizard Harry’. I also have so much love for Hagrid!


  4. These are all spectacular moments! My favorite moments are when Harry thinks Wood is a cane that he’s going to be beaten with and the morning after Hagrid has given Harry his letter. Both just make me smile and revel in the nostalgia. ❤️ I’m currently on the Deathly Hallows audiobook and this post kind of makes me want to start all over again!
