Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was the first Harry Potter book I've read. I was intrigued by the story once I saw the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think because it takes place with Harry as a teen having to deal with love and relationships as well is impending doom. Also, because it's the second to the last of the books, so I know there is an ending in sight. I could not force myself to read 7 books knowing that the first 5 are just fillers.
*spoilers*The story was very exciting dealing with the back story of Lord Voldamort and how he was bad from the get go. Draco and the rest of the Death Eaters are plotting on taking over Hogwarts therefore, getting to Harry. I have also placed my theory on why Snape is so sneaky. I do think he is working on the good side because he was on the bad side in the beginning but changed his mind after LV killed the woman he loves. AKA Lilly Potter. Yea that's right! That is why he is so resentful of Harry. Well that is my theory.
I also enjoyed this book because it is a great source of new and unique names. Each page has wonderfully crafted names that can be used either on pets or future children. :) Can't wait to get a new tabby cat named Snape. :)
