    1. "Read Harry Potter!" they said. "It'll be fun!" they said. "Our childhood was built on Harry Potter!" they said.WELL YOUR CHILDHOODS WERE ALL HORRIBLE. OMG WHAT IS THIS BOOK? WHAT IS THIS MESS I'M IN?? Excuse me, but that large salty lake where my life used to be is my tears. Yes, yes, this means I loved it. But SERIOUSLY. Nooooot okay. At the end there, especially, I couldn't put the audio down so I was wandering about my house in a blind daze listening instead.And because every human and their [...]


    2. The crown jewel of the Harry Potter series, "Half-Blood Prince" is one of the finest novels I've read in my lifetime. Having allowed us to watch Harry evolve and mature for so many years, Rowling finally lifts the veil, so to speak, humanizing the larger than life characters of not just Dumbledore and Snape, but significantly and achingly, Tom Riddle. This is love letter to one of the hardest things we all experience: the moment that your idols become your peers, your parents become your friends [...]


    3. i dont want to talk to anyonedont even look at mei was expecting it and i still cried for like 30 minutes


    4. I was first introduced to Harry Potter in a Children’s Lit class in college. I had resisted this popular phenomenon until I was forced to pick it up for a grade, and Book 1 was short enough that I could read it in the course of 2 hours. I have to admit I wasn’t impressed to any extent, nor did I dislike the experience, but I was critical on grounds of its being derivative, even if reading the first led to reading the second. After all, if I was bored and looking for something light, I could [...]


    5. Since pretty much everyone I know has read these books, I figure reviewing them is pretty pointless. But with the new book coming out in a couple of days, I have to go through them beginning to end. To make the reviews more entertaining, I will be doing them in a variety of unexpected formats. For this review, I will be writing as a power ballad.(Intro: Piano and strings)You were always by my sideYou will always be my guideBut the road I'm onGoes on and onAnd I've left you beHIIIIIND!(Big crunch [...]


    6. Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To YouThis is DEFINITELY one of my top favorite books in the series. Shit just gets so real.My thoughts:-Dumbledore is so FREAKING sketchy in this book! He's so secretive, and he's always sneaking around, not explaining anything to Harry.-I'm always so proud of Fred and George for getting their own joke shop I don't know what it is, I just feel like a proud mom.-ALL OF THE TOM RIDDLE BACKSTORY. THE GAUNT HOUSE. OMG. I literally need a whole book about [...]


    7. It seems like by now, everyone would realize they should listen to HarrySuch a sad end :( I knew that was going to happen before starting the series, but didn't know when. It still got me in the feels, though.The book as a whole was really fun and entertaining. I love the mystery and learning more about Voldemort. The romance drama was funny as well.I can't wait to see what adventures the next book brings and how it all concludes


    8. Reminder that all of my Harry Potter reviews contain unmarked spoilers, and lots of ’em. If you’re one of the two people on who hasn’t read this series, this review is not for you. So, my dear underside-of-a-rock-residing friends:emmareadstoomuch.wordpressThis review will be interesting, because this book was far (far, far) from perfect, and yet I am utterly determined to give it 5 stars. (Which I have only given to the first book in this series.)God, how do you talk about this book? It [...]


    9. “I am a wizard, not a baboon brandishing a stick.”Harry Potter is my life. My life is Harry Potter. Once again there are so many great and amazing scenes and quotes pressed between these pages, so much truth and emotion. How could it not fall for it again and again and again.Some of my favourite scenes (in no particular order):-Fleur and Mrs. Weasly falling into each others arms crying (just thinking about it makes me teary)(but no, really: Fleur is such an amazing and slightly underrated ch [...]


    10. Buddyread with the cutest Trixi.*sniffs* I have actually finished this several days ago but I spent those days mourning for the loss of one of my favorite characters of all time and before I start bawling my heart and eyes out again, let me straight away proceed to the random thoughts while and after reading the book. *sniffs* 1. *Gasps* Professor Snape???2. Harry’s Quidditch Captain! Yaaas!3. Weasleys’ Wizzard Wheezes (Say this ten times)4. Malfoy’s head on Pansy Parkinson’s lap and Pan [...]


    11. Edit : Rounded it up into 5 stars!REVIEW TO COME TOMORROW!4,8 Stars 'Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right,' said Hermione. 'I heard him telling your mum, Ron.' I'm really enjoying this series so far but this series gets darker and darker. the first three of this series were so funny and cute even though there were sad scenes on them and the fourth, fifth and sixth books contained so much pain and I even shed more tears for these book than I [...]


    12. Spoilers for anyone who has never read the books or seen the movies. In which case, have you been living under a rock?!(view spoiler)["Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love."Albus Dumbledore is by far one of my favourite characters. He is clever, kind, badass, but most of all, he is weird. And I like weird. I like the way his first-day-of-the-year speeches make no sense at all. I like how he uses different types of candy for his office passwords [...]


    13. “It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.” Reading this book was brutally depessing. I've never expected Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to be dark like this, but I liked it anyway. The boy from book one has grown up and makes a decision that turns out to be disastrous. The thing I loved about this book might be when Harry and Dumbledore dig into Voldemort's memory. We get to know about him and what kind of person he was before he became the Dark L [...]



    14. Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts. With Lord Voldemort on the loose things are going very bad in wizard community; all the troubles spill in the Muggle world. Unsurprisingly the book begins with a chapter with real Muggle Prime Minister - somewhat unnecessary I might add. If you think you can find anything original in this review you are sadly mistaken. It is practically impossible to find anything new to say after literally everybody and their brother read and discussed the series. Still it [...]


    15. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. 

There were some things I truly loved about this one. I loved how the bulk of the book, nothing crazy happened. It felt like some of the older books and I love that feeling. All the Harry and Dumbledore time we got, the memories of Voldemort’s past (which were very interesting) and of course Harry and Ginny, who I’ve shipped for a while now finally got their shot. That’s the good. There is also a lot of sadness and despair. A very important and [...]


    16. You knew it was coming, but it still hurt.Anyone familiar with the hero cycle knows that the protagonist will usually lose his mentor figure. As this was the penultimate book, I think many of us knew going into it that Dumbledore would die before the end.As this book is mainly about Harry spending time with Dumbledore, it was bittersweet. Like an ailing relative who knows they don't have much time left, trying to make the most of their remaining days. I would like to think that Albus saw Harry a [...]


    17. three or fourthree or fourthree or four i have no idea but i do know that j.kwling should be banned from writing from this day forward. STOP. HURTING. MY. FAVS.RTC3.5 stars!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~i just have two things to say1) why are these books so HUGE ???? halp2) i'm convinced this is gonna be the best from the series so, much pressure TAKE THAT, PRAG


    18. ***WARNING: This review will contain spoilers that will not be marked so if you haven’t read this book then I don’t recommend you read my review. I don’t usually write reviews like this where I talk less about how good the book is but more about what goes on in the plot*****Also this was a re-read for me**This book was so much better than I expected. I cannot remember enjoying this book as much as I did now. I actually thought this was one of my least favorite in the series but now I’ve [...]


    19. I've always said Half Blood Prince was my favorite of the movies, but really it's the story and not the adaptation that I love. I especially love seeing Harry come to terms with his feelings for Ginny and how aptly Rowling describes young romance as a monster living in your chest. New favorite of the series? But I'm saying that about all of them on this reread, oops.


    20. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the 6th book in the Young Adult Fantasy series written in 2005 by J.K. Rowling. Although I could go on and on about this book, there are so many other reviews and reviewers who are likely to have a better one simply because they wrote it write after reading the book or watching the movie. I read it close to ten years ago, saw the movie at least 5 years ago, and though I would love to re-read them my TBR pile is way too high. [...]


    21. Uno de los mejores libros de la saga. Un libro que puede pasar como "preparación" para el último, pero que en realidad tiene fuerza por sí mismo. Fantástico y más oscuro que sus predecesores, como me gusta.Y ahora, Harry, adentrémonos en la oscuridad y vayamos en busca de la aventura, esa caprichosa seductora.- Albus Dumbledore


    22. FUCK ME MY CHEST HURTS AND MY SOUL IS CRUSHED, WHY DO I KEEP REREADING THESE BOOKS? IT'S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL THIS BOOK, AND THEN IT'S A QUICK DESCENT INTO HEARTACHE AND MIND NUMBING PAIN 💙


    23. What stands out in book 6:* The introduction of the Horcrux. * Molly Weasley asking Arthur Weasley about his "dearest ambition." Rowling has always been great at revealing little intriguing bits about her characters at a time, and Arthur’s answer "to find out how airplanes stay up" reminds us about his obsession with Muggles.* Harry's private lessons with Dumbledore, and more time spent with the fascinating and dangerous pensieve, arguably one of Rowling’s most ingenious inventions.* Fred an [...]


    24. Un libro tan emocionante como doloroso, me tomaron por sorpresa todos los sucesos que acontecen en este libro. Reí y me emocioné muchísimo con el 90% del libro, pero cuando llegué a las últimas páginas todo fue dolor y sufrimiento.Terminé destrozada Reseña Completa: bastvilard/2015/0


    25. First of all ,It's the less "action" book in the series, That's why many may get disappointed, But I see it's one important book for the character development and to wrap up the actual "Task" of how Harry should finish Voldemort. as at that book we learn more about his past also we realize secrets that the writer kept hidden-although gave some hints that proved it was there from the beginning-about what Harry's facing, The cleverness of showing the "Horcruxes" idea was there since the early stag [...]


    26. ”And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”In the wake of epic confrontation in the Department of Mysteries, Harry Potter and his friends start their sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is rather more quiet than the fifth, but contains some incredibly intriguing aspects. An elusive Draco Malfoy, a book containing the scribbles of the enigmatic Half-Blood Prince, and more information on the backstory of a certain Hogw [...]



    27. This book has to be one of my favourites in the series, if not my favourite!! There's just something really special about it and it's just such a beautiful bookThe plot is so intricately structured and everything falls into place so well! I think this book has the best plot out of the series as it builds up to the end and really does keep you guessing throughout!The character development within this book is fantastic! Everyone is just that little bit sassier and hormonal which is very entertaini [...]


    28. My heart is shattering as I finish this phenomenal book. I was nervous to read it again because as it was my favourite the first time I read the series, I was anxious to see if maybe I would be let down. I completely understand why this was my favourite of the series, and still so far is. I connect the most with the characters and the feelings that they are faced with throughout this book. I am bawling my eyes out as I write this review, and with good reason. The death of Dumbledore is earth sha [...]
