It all comes down to this – a final faceoff between good and evil. You plan to pull out all the stops, but every time you solve one mystery, three more evolve. Do you stay the course you started, despite your lack of progress? Do you detour and follow a new lead that may not help? Do you listen to your instincts, or your friends?

Lord Voldemort is preparing for battle and so must Harry. With Ron and Hermione at his side, he’s trying to hunt down Voldemort’s Horcruxes, escape danger at every turn, and find a way to defeat evil once and for all. How does it all end? Find out in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I finally did it! I have now read all the books in the Harry Potter series and I’m so glad I did. It was amazing you guys. Ginny is my new favorite character; she’s so bad ass. Molly Weasley and Professor McGonagall are queens. Everything about this book was perfect and I absolutely loved how it all ended. It’s so much better than the movies you guys! So much better!

The beginning of this book started a little slow for me. I was ready to dive into the action. Let’s find those Horcruxes you guys! Once it picked up though I was totally enthralled. I needed to know what would happen next (even though I did know what would happen next). I liked all the background we got on Dumbledore in this book and that he was also a flawed character. I also found Snape interesting. I don’t like him like I know a lot of people do because honestly I found his love for Lily to just be a really unhealthy obsession, but I understand him a bit more now so I don’t hate him.

Also, when Hermione and Ron finally kissed it was such a better moment than it was in the movies. It felt more earned to me in the books. When it happened I literally put down the book, laughed, and said, “Finally!” Speaking of kisses, the chemistry between Ginny and Harry in the books is fantastic and I ship them so hard. Did I mention I love Ginny?

Neville, Luna, and Dean were great as well and I’m kind of hoping Luna and Dean are together. I don’t know I just got some vibes there that maybe that was something that would happen. The loss of Lupin, Tonks, and Fred still made be tear up even though I was prepared for it. For why J. K. Rowling?

Overall, I was super happy with the book and I’m glad I finally read them. Now I just need the box set so that I can have these books always. I can’t wait to read The Cursed Child! Are you going to any release parties tonight? Let me know in the comments. Also, Happy Birthday Neville!

“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and above all, those who live without love.”
