Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J.K. Rowling

This has got to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest book I have ever read.
It's gigantic.
You would think it would be daunting but actually, while it took me forever and a day to complete, it flowed so well that I always had a hard time putting it down. Life just got in the way for me, not the book.
This one had me more sad at times. It had moments that you didn't want to happen and they still did. I'm left with a 'Poor Potter' feeling. It sucks. Yet I want more.
The one thing I will tell you about the story is that this is the book where Harry finally understands who he is and matures some. So many of his questions, even ones he didn't know he had were answered. It brought a lot of everything together.
Still it's not over, so I must continue.

Still not a favorite from the series.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

So on my YouTube channel I am participating in a readalong called potterwatch. Each month we are reading a Harry Potter book and watching the film that goes with it. Last month we did the first book and first movie. So this month it's book 2 turn. I still have to watch the movie for the book.

So this is only my second time reading this book, I never reviewed it before, because at the time the book first came out, I just read books and didn't rate them. If I would have back then, it would have probably been only 3 1/2 stars, but on the reread, u really felt I liked it much more this time around. I love the flying car scenes, the ending scene with Harry and Dobby. Things I didn't like and annoyed me was any scenes with Lockhart, and any scenes with Heromine and Molly, falling for what he was trying to sell. Heromine is suppose to be so freaking smart, but falls for that shit. And at first Dobby gets on my freaking nerves, but of course I start to love my adorable little house elf. 

Really can't wait to read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the first time I read it, I would say it was my favorite book and movie as well. So I can't wait to see if any of the positions of my book love changes. 

I will tell you my least to favorite, which I told you already my favorite and least favorite. 

7. chamber of secrets. 

6.the Goblet of fire 

5. The sorcerer's stone 

4. Order of the Phoenix 

3. The half blood Prince 

2. The Deathly Hallows 

1. The prisoner of Azkaban. 

So there we go

Coming of Age: "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - J.K. Rowling


(original review, 2002)


Children's literature comes in 3 styles these days. "The Coming of Age Stories", in which a child suffers a horrible tragedy and grows because of it. Pets, best friends, and elderly relations don't live long in Coming of Age tales. I hated the things when I was a kid. I'd seen enough tragedy first hand. I didn't need to read about it. Then there are the "realistic" children's books, that describe the social dynamics of middle school, without commenting on how the everyday cruelty affects children.

Painful Memories: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré

(original review, 2000)

So millions of readers think these books are brilliant. It takes an odd sort of character to say, in this context, "frankly the books are rubbish".

Very odd.

It seems so much more natural, and logical, to say something like "I think these books are badly written ("he was sat there" etc.} and don't think they're any good". Just that tiny yet essential shift in emphasis from "They are crap" to "I think they're crap" prevents this massive denial of their appeal, which demonstrates they can't be crap.

Quaint Britishness: "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling,Mary GrandPré


(original review, 1999)

One of the main things that Harry Potter has taught me is that people who dismiss the series out of hand and people who laud it as the best thing since sliced bread are equally annoying. People who dismiss it tend to be those who are overly eager to demonstrate how terribly mature they are, and end up proving the very opposite. And I can't help thinking that people who laud it as literally the best thing ever do so because they've never read anything else or any of the other hundreds of franchises that essentially tell the same (rather tired) story, often in a more inventive way.
