Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
WARNING: this blog post contains spoilers from Book 7 so if you're reading the book or planning on reading the book you might not want to read this just yet
On Friday night at midnight (when the book started selling) my wonderful husband went out and bought me the 7th Harry Potter book! I couldn't go...well maybe I could have but if I did I would have definitely been throwing up because after about 9 or 10 my pregnant body just can't handle being up anymore. So I woke up to find the copy on our table Saturday morning and started reading.
It was wonderful! I loved it! J.K. Rowling is brilliant, she really is. I expected something to happen with Snape though I was still surprised when he or his thoughts at least actually explained his whole story. All my questions were answered in this book, why Dumbledore's hand was all withered and black in the last book and why Snape had to kill him, and then of course Harry being the 7th Horcrux but amazing how he was able to have only that part which Voldemort sort of lived in him killed and then he was able to come back alive completely whole and purely himself! And then of course I loved the epilogue 19 years later showing Harry and Ginny married and Ron and Hermoine married and all their children going or getting ready to attend Hogwarts. Overall I was just so happy that in the end good conquered evil and Harry didn't have to die in the process, but rather he got to start his own family and keep close friendships.
If any of you have finished reading the book I'd love to hear what you thought of it.
