Pottering, Day Three-Going-On-Four: Book Five
I can’t even put into words my love for this book. If I remember correctly this was my favorite in the series and thus far into the reading marathon my love for OOTP is just grown exponentially. This is me being about 23094 times less emotional than I actually am about this book, I love it love it love it to bits.
There’s so much in OOTP I seriously don’t know where to begin. I love Ginny’s new confidence. I like to think having Tonks around during the summer brought that out in her, of course along with the whole not-crushing-on-Harry thing. Luna Lovegood, she just makes me so happy I want to hug her! And I’ve been waiting since the start of ‘Goblet of Fire’ to get to book five for Fred and George’s crazy antics (I cannot wait to see the fireworks and hallway swamp scenes in the movie, I do hope they do the book justice!) And I love love love Hermione (and Ron, of course), and oh! when the super six get together for the first time, so much love! So many new characters, so many new details, so much beautiful description and character building and – basically J.K. Rowling is a witch of the highest order possible, I basically have no words to praise her enough. Honestly, her plot lines are so intricately and finely weaved it’s mind-blowing.
tl;dr: Rowling is my idol. Rowling is a god.
I swear, I’m fan-girling right now more than I fan-girled during the Royal Wedding when I stayed up until five a.m. to watch that thing and I was seriously fan-girling a whole ton then (I baked scones at two in the morning and watched about three 20/20 specials on Kate Middleton to stay awake). Goodness I should just move to the U.K.
