So in January I participated in the January Potter-Thon hosted by Pure Imagination and I posted about what I thought of the first 2 books in the series. You can check out that post here in case you missed it. Anyway I have now read all the way up to book 5 (Order of the Phoenix) and I figured you guys probably wanted to know what I've thought of the other books. Sooo without further ado her are my thoughts on the Harry Potter Series: Part 2!
I LOVE THE WEASLEY'S!!!! Seriously can they be real and can I go live with them in their burrow? I think they are probably the best fictional family I have ever encountered. I just LOVE them. Then again who doesn't love ginger families! Or maybe that's just me......
Ron and Hermione's banter is pretty much hilarious. Its so obvious they kind of like each other yet neither one of them is willing to admit it. Ron just acts plain stupid about it! XD Their relationship in Goblet of Fire was just too funny with Viktor Krum asking Hermione to the dance and then Ron getting jealous but pretending not to be jealous. Ohhh so much romantic tension!!! I can't wait for them to finally express their feelings for one another! Hopefully it happens in Half-Blood Prince.
Wow.... Just WOW. Goblet of Fire was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. IT IS SO GOOD! The whole plot of the series just gets super intriguing and Voldemort comes back plus the super hilarity of the Yule Ball. Nothing can really beat awkward teenage boys and dances. XD Definitely my favorite book of the series so far!
I absolutely loved the way Order of the Phoenix really developed the characters and the spectrum of characters really broadened from the first 4 books. For one Ginny really starts to become more prominent tand I just LOVE her character! She isn't all gaga over Harry anymore (but you know they're gonna get together in the end!!!) so you can really see how competent and tough she is which is awesome. And Luna Lovegood shows up! I really like her even though she is a bit odd. But there is something wonderful about her oddness. All I can say is Dumbledores Army totally kicks butt! Can I join?
Fred and George and their pranks are totally awesome. Half the time I'm annoyed with them and the other half of the time I think they're just plain genius. Especially when they just fly out of school to make their joke shop in Order of the Phoenix! That was definitely an epic win. IN YOUR FACE DOLORES UMBRIDGE!!! Haha. :)
The one thing that I don't get is Hermione's extreme obsession with freeing the house elves. I mean its obvious that the house elves don't want to be freed! Except for a select few like Dobby. But honestly its like get a clue Hermione!!! Oh well. Dobby showing up with all of the hats that Hermione had knitted was super funny though. Him and his obsession for clothes. XD
I cannot wait to finish the rest of the Harry Potter books! Well I guess I can wait because the series is almost over which saddens me terribly. I don't want it to end! But I guess I the last movie is still coming out so that's something to look forward to right?
Who are your guyses favorite Harry Potter characters? Mine are Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, and Ginny!
