It appears that today is Harry Potter all the way! (Good thing I went ahead and went for that HP font, that looks great, right?). A few days ago leannaatc @Short Story Long had this amazing idea of doing a 30 days Harry Potter challenge, I thought it was a great idea so I jumped on board. You can find the themes for each day here, and you can see her post for the first day here.
– Day 1: Your favorite book? –
As I just said in The Harry Potter Tag, for my favorite book I have to pick Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
I really like this book because it manages to have funny moments within all the tragedy that’s going on. We also have the constant presence of Aurors in Hogwarts, which is pretty damn cool, and a lot of Tonks. We also see these teenagers grow a lot, there’s more Quidditch, with Ginny kicking ass. And that kiss! I love Ginny and Harry’s kiss in front of everyone (not at all like the movie).
I also loved that we get the distinct notion for the first time, that maybe, just maybe, Draco is not all into the bad stuff, his character is a lot more complex, and here it finally shows.
And Horace Slughorn, who I found super interesting – and it’s nice to see that not all Slytherins are indeed bad.
I loved how the storyline was immensely more complex :D. Oh, and Harry for once being better than Hermione at class was epic (even if he was kind of cheating!).
That’s it, see you tomorrow for day #2!
