WOW… Another masterpiece by TJR! I have been in a reading rut lately but this book dragged me out of it. I really enjoyed the interview style of writing and the connections it forced me to make with the characters. This book was one that made me to feel exactly what the charceters were feeling and had me conflicted on who I was rooting for in the end. The story felt so real and alive. I was enthralled by the plot and couldn‘t put it down!

FINALLY! It took me extra long to read this book, partly because I was busy, but mostly because I didn‘t want to finish this series. I wish I could explicitly say everything I loved about this book, but I don‘t have enough words. If you‘re an HP fan, you probably know anyways. Overall, the books brought a lot more plot and details into the series (obviously). This book was truly a great read and I‘m already planning a reread.

I‘ll be honest, I never really enjoyed this movie as much as the others, but after reading the book… WOW! This book has by far been the most intriguing and kept me hooked the entire way through. Getting more insight into Voldemort‘s past was my favorite thing about the book. This book had me questioning more about the characters and their motives, especially Snapes. I definitely need to go watch the movie again. I loved this book!

I am really impressed by how much reading the books has made me appreciate the movies! I think this book really gave a lot more insight into Sirius/James/Snape backstory and Dumbledore‘s struggle with caring for Harry. I wish the movies showed all of that more, especially putting Dobby in the movies! Sirius‘ death broke my heart and reading Harry‘s thoughts was hard. I can‘t believe I‘m almost done with the series… on to the next!

WOW! I loved this book. This movie was my favorite of the series but after reading the book it might be in my bottom, just because SO much information/plotlines/characters are left out. However, I will say this book is by far my favorite. There are so many differently elements to it and I feel that it‘s the first truly mature book of the series. Overall, I have loved getting to know/understand more about all of the characters.

I really enjoyed this book! The beginning was a bit slow for me (as was the movie), but by the middle I didn‘t want to put it down. I loved getting more of an insight into James Potter and Snapes backstory, along with the role Crookshanks played throughout. However, Ron did make me so mad with the way he was acting towards Hermione the entire time! I was mostly happy to read a more in-depth ending when they are in the shrieking shack!

This book is my favorite of the Harry Potter movies and I‘m happy to say I loved the book equally as much, if not more! I liked reading more about the ghosts, who had been cut from the movies for insignificance to the plot. I mostly enjoyed the last five chapters and reading more in depth about Tom Riddle‘s past, as it gave me a better understanding of the character. Overall I felt like the movie did a great job recreating the book!

I have watched all of the movies multiple times but finally committed to reading all of the books. I can definitely see why this is such a classic favorite for so many! I loved to see a more exaggerated version of the characters personalities compared to the movies, as well as more of Snapes character overall. I can‘t wait to keep reading the series!

I cannot explain in any amount of words the feelings I have towards this book that would make someone understand just how deeply I loved it. I felt connected to the characters and fully appreciated their stories. The complexity of Evelyn Hugo‘s story and Monique‘s role in it all was breathtaking. I have never cried reading a book or felt passionately enough to do so, but I balled my eyes out through the end. Do yourself a favor, read it now.

If there were any book I could rate more than a pick, this would be the one. It was recommended to me by my best friend, who I will forever be in debt to for it. The writing. The plot. The characters. Everything. Just utter brilliance. I have no critique that would make this book better than it already is. I will never stop praising this book, nor will I ever get over the ending. An absolute psychological thriller if I‘ve ever read one.

I am a major Colleen Hoover fan! I have thoroughly enjoyed every book I have read by her, but something about this book was even more rewarding than others. I enjoyed the eerie writing and the open ending for personal interpretation. I though the characters were equally as intriguing as the plot. This is definitely a new favorite of mine!

I personally don‘t enjoy slow burn books, especially ones that last about 75% of the books entirety. I can appreciate the plot and characters, but was mostly disappointed with the ending as it seemed more outlandish. It has that shock factor at the end, but I feel like by the time I got to it I was just ready to be done with the book and couldn‘t fully appreciate it.

Jennaree3 I'm halfway and it is taking me so. Long. To. Finish. But Reese Witherspoon liked it so it must be a literary masterpiece 2mo

I thought this book was really fast paced and an easy read that kept me hooked until the second part. I felt like the ending became too convenient and predictable. I wish there was more backstory for the people who started the chain. Overall a good and easy read that kept me interested!
