When people tell me that they read Harry Potter in their childhood I will now feel extremely concerned because how can someone READ something like that when they’re like, EIGHT YEARS OLD?!?! WERE YOU SO TRAUMATIZED WHEN YOU WERE EIGHT YEARS OLD?!?(show spoiler)
*breathes* Okay, time to push that to the side and start a review. If I can write one. Since I’m not capable of thinking right now. But that’s okay.
Anyway, Half-Blood Prince starts off with Harry in his second last year of school at Hogwarts. Besides the fact that I was already traumatized from Order of the Phoenix, I can only say that J.K. Rowling was probably laughing in my face while I was reading this book and thinking about the amount of trauma she’ll be able to cause me now.
ANYWAY, at the beginning of this book, I thought that Harry was a little too obsessed with the Draco Malfoy. Up to the point where he was so determined
Also, I’d never even thought that(show spoiler)
One thing I did not like—besides J.K. Rowling giving me an early death—was probably the way the kids acted with Hagrid in this book. They weren’t rude or anything, but they wasted no effort or time into
Although this book had a bit more drama in my opinion than anything in the beginning and the middle, it was slightly fleshed out with Harry and Dumbledore’s meetings. The world building and the additional tension to the plot were amazing! It’s probably my favorite book in relation to additional world-building! I also really like learning more about Lord Voldemort!
Of course, I’m not picking up Deathly Hallows right away, since I have a pile of books at home to read, anyway. But, considering the amount of time that I need to probably accept the fact that there will be more “sad things” happening.
