I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. If I described in full detail how big a fan, I’d seem nuts. I own a wand from Olivanders, have a Harry Potter tattoo sketched out I plan to get soon, have actually WROTE fan fiction, and can recite the whole first movie. Needless to say, I have read this book multiple times. Half Blood Prince is not only my favorite Harry Potter movie, but also my favorite book of the series. The book follows Harry Potter and his merry group of friends in their 6th year at Hogwarts. Lots of shit goes down in this book, to put it lightly. This is where He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named prepares for war, and Harry prepares to defeat him alongside Dumbledore. Why this book stands out as my favorite though is it is the last book where they are students. As many other fans and I would tell you, some of the best parts in the series are when the trio is just doing everyday wizard shit, and just being everyday students! This is the last book to have those amazing parts that put us in the shoes of everyday life at the best (allegedly) fictional school ever created! Harry Potter is easily the most famous series out there, so you don’t need me to tell you its great. I just wanted to tell you why I think this book is the greatest.
