Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (audio) by J.K. Rowling

The Half-Blood Prince is one of my favorite HPs though the last bit kills me.  When I get to the part with the phoenix song I always cry.  Though I found myself wanting to defend Snape's actions in the hosptial wing scene after everything had happened.  Which is so funny because the first time I read it, I was so angry at him.  These books are such an emotional investment.

I like the unfolding of the Horcrux storyline through the memories and the background on Voldemort.  It shows how went from a little psychopath to a very big psychopath and how his own orphaned state lead him down a such a different path than Harry's.  It's amazing how much of the little things from the past books start coming together here to continue on through Deathly Hallows

I've never been a big shipper type person, but I love the Harry and Ginny and Ron and Hermione couples.  There is a whole lot of Harry and Ginny, of course, and Ron and Hermione slowly get it together but they are so funny in doing so.

  1. Which actions in the hospital wing? There are so many different times he's there that I'm not sure which one you're referring to.

  2. @Amanda - After Dumbledore's death when they are dissecting what happened and going on about how horrible Snape is.

    @Juju - Shipper = people who support a certain relationship (i.e. Harry and Ginny)

  3. I love this book! Even though Deathly Hallows is my all-time favorite. But I, too, really enjoy the relationships aspect of this book.
