    Oooh, this is when things start to get complicated! Harry is starting to take secret lessons with the one and only Professor Dumbledore, to fight against "You Know Who", and is struggling to keep up with the mountain of homework he has while he's at it. He also has to go to DADA classes now, knowing that Snape is teaching him. There is also something strange going on with Malfoy, and he just can't put his finger on it... although Ron and Hermione refuse to believe him. All in all, I would give this a ten out of ten! It was a great read!

      Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince is the sixth book of the Harry Potter Series. In this book, things mature more and the story takes a more darker turn. Another thing in this book that happens is that a character is killed in this book. Overall, this book was interesting. I recommend this book to people to enjoy the Percy Jackson series, and enjoy other books in the Harry Potter series. I rate this book 5/5.

          In J. K. Rowling's sixth bestselling book, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the suspense is thicker than ever before. After yet another failed plan of Voldemort's, it is impossible to believe that he won't strike back with full force. Even prewar, though, teenagers are teenagers. Harry Potter watches a romance form between his two best friends, himself fall in love, and along with it all, schoolwork troubles, jealousy, violence, and unrest. Snape is harsher than ever, Draco can often not be spotted on the Marauder's Map, and mysterious cursed and poisoned objects threaten to kill off students. He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is building up a new regime and, despite his hopes, even Harry's biggest savior may not be able to stop him.

                  It is now Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts. Dumbledore makes his way to Privet Drive to collect Harry from his aunt and uncle. Ron gets a new girlfriend in this book. Harry uses the Marauder's Mao to keep track of Draco at Hogwarts. Dumbledore and Harry go to see what Draco is up to and something happens to Dumbledore. I gave this book only four stars because I wished one of the characters could have survived. I connected this book to my life by also losing a loved one like in the book.
