    I decided to read this book when my parents played the audio book in the car. I was instantly hooked. Have read around 4 times. One of the worst mistakes someone can make in the book world is not reading the Harry Potter series

        I think J.K Rowling should deserve a round of applause for writing this spectacular masterpiece! Now, another one for the Golden Trio!

          Honestly dumbledore seemed so wise and worth saving. Like after book five everything got sad. RIP. Hey have any of you guys heard the theme from the movie leaving hogwarts. Isn't it a great song. Makes you feel a little sad but then you feel like there's happines to come. This is my favorite book its so good because it shows you the things you must face to win. Good day to you all.

                Harry Potter is back once again to Hogwarts, but things are teetering on the edge of good and bad. An old professor is brought back for the Potions class and for once, Harry is actually excelling at it! But that may be because he had some help from a very special prince... Love has been going through the common rooms, but not all love is meant to be. Harry has been having lessons with Dumbledore into the past, but not all of the past memories are worth looking at. And let's not forget poor Katie Bell, who seems to be paralyzed and Ron isn't too good either. But when someone so loved has been killed, Harry finds himself face to face against Voldemort and Death Eaters. Will Harry finally banish Voldemort? Happy reading!
