‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ by J.K. Rowling: Book Reviewed + Series Wrap Up

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

In this epic conclusion to the ‘Harry Potter’ series, Harry, Ron and Hermione face horrors they’ve never dreamed off, as the wizarding world crumbles around them. Lives will be lost, battles will be fought, but who will win?

MY REVIEW:

‘Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living, and, above all those who live without love’.

The ‘Harry Potter’ books, and this one in particular as the last one, hold a lot of memories and emotion for me, which is why it’s difficult not to well up simply at the dedication at the front, my favourite I’ve ever read in a book for obvious reasons. I’ll try to emulate it the best I can here:

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling: Book Reviewed

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

In the middle of Summer, Harry Potter waits in his Privet Drive bedroom for Professor Dumbledore, not knowing where he will take him, but willing all the same. This is the start of his sixth year at Hogwarts, a year that will bring romance, magic (obviously), and finally, answers to questions he’s been asking all his life, and some he hasn’t even begun to contemplate…

MY REVIEW:

‘It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more’.

Books & Films: September

I’m going to split this post into three sections: Books, movies and book to movies. I’m just going to be talking about new releases, my expectations, all that kind of stuff, so be prepared for a lengthy article.

BOOKS:

So I’ve always loved reading, but ever since I really started getting into movies a lot (about a year ago now) I’ve on a very long reading slump. However, about a month ago, I suddenly realised: Oh my gosh, there’s a whole world of books out there that I am not exploring, and I started to research, watch book tube, go on Goodreads, ask friends for recommendations, until I had a huge reading list that I will never get through but will try anyway. Now I’m just starting to explore this new world of reading and am super excited about it, and considerably more clued up about it now.

BOOK SYNOPSIS:

In Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts, danger is lurking just around the corner and stakes are higher than ever, but with the Ministry of Magic refusing to believe the truth, and the Order of the Phoenix reformed, but still keeping some secrets of their own from Harry, Ron and Hermione, it looks to be another year full of adventure.

MY REVIEW:

‘Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure’.
