Book Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

New-Harry-Potter-and-the-Half-Blood-Prince-posters-movies-6731385-850-1259The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggle governments are noticing. Ron scans the obituary pages of the Dailly Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.

And yet, as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate—and lose a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

So it’s the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here at Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort—and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.

So this is my first book review on this blog and I thought I share with you my awesome thoughts on it:

I just….I mean….ALL OF THE FEELS. EVERY. SINGLE. LAST. OF. THEM. Dumbledore’s death (cries), the Ron/Lavender thing, Harry trying to find out what’s Malfoy up to. Luna being…well, Luna and Snape….DAMN YOU SNAPE. JUST DAMN YOU TO HELL. All in all I actually enjoyed this book and I really do reconmend the books and the movies as well!


Dumbledore’s Death in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

So I’m reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and as I’m reading it, I follow Harry and Dumbledore to The Cave, where we found the next Horcrux that Lord Voldemort had made a long time ago. I (horrifically) read Dumbledore drink that horrible potion and then they Apparated back to Hogsmead. When they were in Hogsmead, they saw the Dark Mark and went back to the school, where the Dark Mark floated over the Lightning-Struck Tower. Then badabing, badaboom, Snape killed Dumbledore after Malfoy couldn’t do it.

My reaction?
