Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6) | J.K. Rowling
When Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens, the war against Voldemort has begun. The Wizarding world has split down the middle, and as the casualties mount, the effects even spill over onto the Muggles. Dumbledore is away from Hogwarts for long periods, and the Order of the Phoenix has suffered grievous losses. And yet, as in all wars, life goes on. Harry, Ron, and Hermione, having passed their O.W.L. level exams, start on their specialist N.E.W.T. courses. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate, losing a few eyebrows in the process. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry becomes captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team, while Draco Malfoy pursues his own dark ends. And classes are as fascinating and confounding as ever, as Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. Most importantly, Dumbledore and Harry work together to uncover the full and complex story of a boy once named Tom Riddlethe boy who became Lord Voldemort. Like Harry, he was the son of one Muggle-born and one Wizarding parent, raised unloved, and a speaker of Parseltongue. But the similarities end there, as the teenaged Riddle became deeply interested in the Dark objects known as Horcruxes: objects in which a wizard can hide part of his soul, if he dares splinter that soul through murder. Harry must use all the tools at his disposal to draw a final secret out of one of Riddles teachers, the sly Potions professor Horace Slughorn. Finally Harry and Dumbledore hold the key to the Dark Lords weaknesses... until a shocking reversal exposes Dumbledores own vulnerabilities, and casts Harrysand Hogwartssfuture in shadow.

Today, I‘m sharing my reading progress for the book I‘m currently reading and a picture of the #gingerbreadhouse I made. This afternoon, I worked on this because I forgot to work on it before Christmas. I had fun doing it. Tonight, I listened to more of the book I‘m reading. I have 2 hrs left in the audiobook so I‘m getting close to being finished.

MaGoose Wow! That's awesome. 1mo

Tonight, I‘m sharing my reading progress for a book I‘m currently reading. I watched the movie How The Grinch Stole Christmas (the live action adaptation) and I enjoyed it so I wasn‘t sure whether to watch another Christmas movie or read some of the book I‘m currently reading so I decided to read. I‘m trying to read this book and watch Christmas movies too. I‘ve read some Christmas books but I don‘t think I‘ll get around to reading more of them.

Voldemort's entire being is full of #greed But what brought him to this point? What ever brings a sociopathic leader to this point? Ego. We all suffer from ego getting in our way, but most of us know how to bring it back in check. Voldemort, and others who shall not be named, don't. Their egos are more important to them than anything or anyone else. #hpchapteraday @Redjewel_7734

Does anyone else wonder why that book had to suffer for this meme? -_-;

"And it‘s a human need to be told stories. The more we‘re governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible."
