One out of three.  
Yes, the wait is over.

I finally got to read The Half-Blood Prince yesterday afternoon and was able to finish it at around 2 in the morning.

(Was pissed that someone made a prank-phone call at around midnight just when I was getting to the juicy parts. Pulled the phone cord out to keep more of them out of the way. Lucky prank-caller, I wasn't the type to swear out loud. My thoughts were quite colorful that moment.)

I was surprised it was shorted than The Order of the Phoenix since the latest HP seems to always be longer than the previous one.

Thanks to psychedelic_aya, btw. Too bad you won. XD But either way, I get to read it. ^___^


Was still a bit annoyed that spoilers were all over school. I found out that Dumbledore would die and Snape was the Half-Blood Prince even before I got to get my hand on the book. There were more but at least I found out nothing more.

BUT STILL.

At first I was disappointed at the book (Except for the juicy Death Eater scenes at the start.) the Quidditch matches were boring. And I didn't like that stunt Harry pulled to get the snitch. The classes were okay, I guess. But their time in school was just I dunno, boring. The Lord Voldemort memories were cool though. I liked that. At least the ending was good, making me like the book all the same. Sad, but good.

But really, I still believe most parts were boring and unnecessary. Oh well. There's always the ending. Good ending.

Lots of relationships in the book too.

Harry/Draco was fun to read. Hahah. :D

The Harry-likes-Ginny moments was pretty much out-of-the-blue-ish to me. When did that happen? His thoughts about her were just sickening. But the two seem to fit together quite well. I still support Harry/Draco though. XD

Remus/Tonks was okay. They were kind of cute. I like them. Liked that small speech of Fleur on Bill. Yay, Fleur!

Ron/Lavender was just stupid. Enough said. At least there were cute Ron/Hermione moments.

The flashbacks or the mere mentions of James and Lily's name made me utterly happy. I am still obsessed with those two. XD Hints of Sirius was saddening though. It's still sad to think that the only Marauder left is Remus.

Lastly, I think R.A.B. is Regulus Black. He was the first person that came to mind when I read the letter in the locket. I mean, who else fitted the initials? I just wonder what the A stand for. was it mentioned before?

It's Regulus Black, I just know it. (Or maybe I'm still hung up on Sirius's death that I am forcing his relatives into the story. XD)


The book was good. I can't wait what will happen next.

I wonder if JK was serious when she said she wouldn't write a book on the Marauder Era? Maybe she will. Who knows? She was quite uncertain when she said that. *crossesfingers*

Ooh, I just remembered! There was a bit of Good Omens inside the book! On page 292, fifth paragraph, the last two words were: "Good omen." Hahah. Cool, no?

Now that I've finished the it, time to read those past entries of my friends on the book. XD Want more thoughts and theories on the book! :D
