Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Only one more book to go in my Harry Potter Marathon and I can’t say I’m not a little sad about it. This trip down the Harry Potter memory lane has been awesome and full of nostalgia. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is not one of my favorites in the series, probably because of the death of Dumbledore and how obsessed Harry becomes with Malfoy, but I still enjoyed it. I used to not be able to understand how fan fiction writers got their ideas for all the Harry-Malfoy ships, but now I think I get it (not that I’d ever read any, ever). A few things I really liked about this book though, was the half-blood prince’s annotations in the textbook (it was kind of hilarious to see Harry better than Hermione at something) and the Ginny-Harry relationship. I don’t like, however, how they immediately ended their relationship because of Voldemort. I really like those two together. I also haaaaaattttttteeeee Lavender Brown. I know she dies at the end of the last book and it probably isn’t the nicest thing to say, but no one gets in the way of Ron and Hermione without my protesting. By the end of this book you can totally see they are going to get together in the next one and I can’t wait. One thing I was also kind of sad about was the absence of Fred and George, because I think they are slowly becoming some of my favorite characters. Onto the Deathly Hallows!
