'His hand closed automatically around the fake Horcrux, but in spite of everything, in spite of the dark and twisting path he saw stretching ahead for himself, in spite of the final meeting with Voldemort he knew must come, whether in a month, in a year, or in ten, he felt his heart lift at the thought that there was still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione.' With these words Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince draws to a close. And here, in this seventh and final book, Harry discovers what fate truly has in store for him as he inexorably makes his way to that final meeting with Voldemort. In this thrilling climax to the phenomenally bestselling series, J.K. Rowling will reveal all to her eagerly waiting readers.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was J.K. Rowling's first novel, followed by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, as well as three books written for charity and inspired by the Harry Potter novels: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Sigh, I liked this book, I really did, but when I first finished it, I felt like it was missing something and I still do, some of the deaths (yes in plural) in the end were so rushed that we don't get time to fully see them before bam something else happens that makes you think of something else.
The good thing was Snape, I always new there was something fishy going on with what happened in Half-Blood Prince, that there was some hidden message that we hadn't seen yet and that Severus Snape didn't really do what he did. Okay he did but.... he was ordered to by the same person who it affected (confusing if you haven't read the book right??) And also we get to learn some things about Albus Dumbledore, confusing at first and then angry things.
And the epilogue, well truthfully I could of done with out it, as we don't get much information about anyone really, yes we get glimpses of what would happen (kids and marriages, but nothing truly)
But, in spite of that I cry because I realize that on July the 15th, it will be the last time I do something about Harry Potter for the first time. The last time I see a film for the first time, the last time I stay up until 3 o'clock in the morning because Harry has just done something really stupid and I need to read what happens next, or the last time I cry for the first time because one of my favourite characters has died.
Also Luna and Kreacherer are amazing I can't believe they left out their parts in the films and Dobby is awsome.
