5 – Favourite book
I think it’s “The Half-Blood Prince”!

I like this book because the student hormones are raging so the relationships become more interesting, and we’re learning about the Horcruxes and Voldemort’s younger years. I’m obviously ignoring the fact that Dumbledore dies at the end!

Other Bookish Things:

I found this article on Buzzfeed “Proof That “Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince” Had The Most Beautiful Cinematography” about the cinematography of the film version of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Price” and it made me realise just how different this film is to the others. Looking at the stills from the film makes me appreciate the beauty of the images captured and how the tone is set in each scene. Usually, I’m too wrapped up in the story and characters to think about the cinematography of a film, but occasionally, I’ll watch a film which has more to it and is more thought about than others. Another example of a film which is like this is “Inception”, with its mind-bending visuals!

The Unbreakable Vow from “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (via Buzzfeed)

“Am I about to discover where you, Ron, and Hermione disappeared to while you were supposed to be in the back room of Fred and George’s shop?’
‘How did you…?’
‘Harry, please. You’re talking to the man who raised Fred and George.”
