Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince | J.K. Rowling
"There it was, hanging in the sky above the school: the blazing green skull with a serpent tongue, the mark Death Eaters left behind whenever they had entered a building... wherever they had murdered..."When Dumbledore arrives at Privet Drive one summer night to collect Harry Potter, his wand hand is blackened and shrivelled, but he does not reveal why. Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy bears the Dark Mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will need powerful magic and true friends as he explores Voldemort's darkest secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny...

Another #audiowalk this sunny #Monday morning! ☀️

Zeus and I scoured the neighborhood for beasts, curiosities, and oddities on #WizardsUnite and came across quite a few! 🐶🧙🏻‍♀️

P.S. The music from the app makes for a lovely background sound while listening to the audio. 🎧📖

Dumbledore in this chapter is FANtastic. 😂 Just another one of his quips to the Dursley family!

”I would assume that you were going to offer me refreshment,” Dumbledore said to Uncle Vernon, “but the evidence so far suggests that that would be optimistic to the point of foolishness.”

quote

“I don‘t mean to be rude -“ [Uncle Vernon] began, in a tone that threatens rudeness in every syllable.

“- yet, sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often,” Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.

😂 Yes!! Without fail, that opening line always ends with something inevitably rude. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Just finished OotP and getting ready to start Half-Blood Prince. You can clearly see which is my favorite book vs my least favorite of the series. Though it was my sister who broke the spines, the yellowed pages are a testament to how many times I‘ve read the 5th book - including a beach vacation

Ok I did not see that plot line coming! 😳😢Not seen the film so this book was all new to me, & I think it is the book that I have enjoyed most so far. Enjoyed the flashbacks and the points in the life of ‘he who should not be named‘. All set up for the last book, & pleased to see how this one went away from the formula of the previous books. Now can‘t wait to get to the final one. As always Stephen Fry was an excellent narrator. #HPBuddyRead

Pro: physical books aren‘t back-lit and are therefore easier on the eyes during long reading sessions.

Con: physical books aren‘t back-lit and therefore require external light source.

Kimberlone @marleed he‘s such a great narrator! He also does The Night Circus, and the narration is really good on that one. Although I am not a fan of how he says Voldemort and the weird French accent for Bellatrix... 2mo

I know it's #AMatterofPerspective whether the characters' actions are justifiable or not, especially Dumbledore's. I've gone back and forth myself, but the more I listen, the more I come back to my original view: everyone was doing the best they could. Humans make mistakes. #StarTrekSummerMay

I just finished reading this book to my kids, and I‘ve discovered I‘m raising monsters. Not a tear was shed over the totally tear-worthy event at the end of this book. I, however, wept openly. Again. And I knew what was going to happen!

The chapter in the cave is my favorite chapter, perhaps of the whole series. And this is still my favorite book of the series. Such a great setup before the final book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Peddler410 Oh my gosh! My daughter was 8 when I read this to her. I started crying early knowing what was coming. Then, full on ugly crying. I was pacing and needed to take 10. My husband came home from work and Daughter says, “I don‘t know. She‘s been like this forever.” (edited) 2mo
Reggie Lololololol, raising monsters. There‘s sometimes I cry just by thinking of Harry Potter. 2mo
stacybmartin I just started Order of the Phoenix with my son so I have some time before I see if I‘m raising a monster as well. My money is on yes. 🤣 Maybe you have to be the one reading it to get the full effect? 2mo

tjwill Its my favorite book of the series, and the cave chapter is my favorite too. I was so mad that my favorite line of the entire series (from the end of that scene) didn‘t make it into the movie. 2mo
TheWordJar @Peddler410 😂😂😂 Sounds like my kids!! I did so well and did not break until I had to say the curse. Then it was full-on. They sat there looking at each while I sobbed and tried to explain that there was only a paragraph left of the chapter, just give me a minute! 😂 2mo
TheWordJar @Reggie Me too! I am so darn attached to some of those characters. 2mo
TheWordJar @stacybmartin I‘m sure your son is a well-adjusted child and will weep appropriately! 😂 My miscreants have ice water on their veins! 2mo
TheWordJar @tjwill ❤️❤️❤️ Yes. That line! I love the way that whole chapter highlights their relationship and then to end with that line. 😭❤️ 2mo

I thought this book was good but not as good as the previous books. I enjoyed reading the beginning of the book and the battle between harry and malfoy because of great detail provided.

review

Modern fantasy and was written in 2005. This book is about harry and his friends going through tragedy and him preparing for his final battle with Voldemort. The book begins with death eaters coming to the muggle world to wreak havoc. Harry spends a lot of his time in this book preparing to destroy Voldemort. Malfoy was given instructions to help the dark lord in his mission to kill harry and his friends.

Book 30 of the year, finished April 13, Audio

The theme of Communication (or lack there of) continues here. Just... Talk to each other, yeah?

I swear these books have had a huge effect on my own parenting decisions. I often will explain things to my kids, age appropriate language but keeping them informed of things. Life isn't easy but hiding hard facts doesn't help anyone.

This will always be my favorite book in the series. I love the depth we get as we learn more about Voldemort‘s past, and Dumbledore and Snape. Harry has to grow up a lot in this book and it sets the stage for the final conflict. But at the same time it‘s the sweet final year at Hogwarts and there is plenty of normal teenage strife. Plus scenes like the one with the muggle prime minister are so fun!

MicheleinPhilly Ollie is like, “Really mama, really?” ☺️ 2mo

Well, that was a long time between drinks. I read The Order Of The Phoenix at least 15 years ago and determined I was done with HP. I‘d enjoyed the first 5 but felt there were too many other books I wanted to read.

But now I have two kids who love HP: 1 has read them all & the other is currently working his way through. They‘ve both urged me to read the last 2.

It goes without saying I enjoyed it. Might take break before the last one though...

BooknerdsLife Awww so happy you are picking up the last 2 books! 👏🏼👏🏼 They are so good!!! Hope you‘ll enjoy reading the last one too 😊 3mo
