Probably the thing I am most excited about is the Hunger Games! I absolutely love the books like every other book reader I know!

Set in a modern North America known as Panem, Panem is set into 12 districts and a Capitol. The capitol uses the 12 districts to fuel it with its needs, and to enforce power over the 12 districts every year the districts are forced to enter two tributes, a boy and girl to be entered into a fight to the death. The book follows Katniss, a girl who volunteers to be in the Hunger Games in place of her sister.

Katniss is probably the most interesting character of the whole series, she’s no Bella Swan. She’s not graceful and elegant, far from it. She’s very wary and clever but also very headstrong and she makes mistakes. I think that in a lot of cases Katniss should have acted differently and she builds such a wall around herself that she prevents Peeta (the other tribute from her district) getting in and this does cause a lot of issues.

I’m hoping that the film will be accurate, I’m going to see it tomorrow and I can’t wait!

Harry Potter Hype (6)

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is the one where Harry finds out what he’s working towards, what could get him out of this mess he was caught in. This book is interesting because it goes into more detail about Voldemort’s family and Voldemort’s past.

 

The first point I wish to bring up is that I was a tiny bit surprised he is only told about the horcruxes in the second half of the second last book. I would have thought that JK Rowling would have introduced it sooner and that’s not a criticism because if JK Rowling had introduced it too early then I could get bored of the horcrux idea.

Then Malfoy and the room of Irma. I loved how Harry can’t work out where Malfoy is going and what he’s doing. I also like how Harry answers his questions about Mafoy by mistake when he is trying to hide the Half Blood Princes potions book.

And the Half Blood Prince! I love the name because it’s so clever and mysterious. And when Snape admits that he is the Half Blood Prince you jump, well I did and I even knew it was Snape.

The Half Blood Prince is made up of lovely little mysteries which you try and solve before Malfoy tells you the answers on the tower. It’s an indulgent book and a fabulous start to the final battle…

Harry Potter Hype (5)

The Order of the Phoenix in my opinion was my least favourite Harry Potter book but by this stage it didn’t matter; all I could think was Harry Potter. I realised I was becoming more than a  fan but a HARDCORE fan. Maybe this is what it feels like to have ‘Bieber fever’ except instead of crushing on some seventeen year old pop star who sings like a girl, I am in admiration of a worldwide phenomenon series of books.

The thing that made it the worst so far was that it was (like the first) a mere introduction to the last books, the 6th and 7th (The Half Blood Prince and the Deathly Hallows) However it was exciting, very exciting, the sort of excitment that makes you want to scream (I know most JB fans can relate to this) ! The evil Professor Umbridge makes you hate the ministry and her dictatorship over the school makes your insides at the mere thought of such a horrible fictional character. As well as exciting the book is unfortunately infuriating at the same time. You have little clue about what the door means until the very end and it’s practically just as annoying as the line ‘and it was all a dream’.

I wish JK Rowling had put in more detail about the downfall of Umbridge. And then more of a confrontation to the ministry as to why they refused to accept Dumbledore and Harry’s warnings.

I may appear like I hate Harry potter and the Order of the Phoenix but I still loved it and I looked forward to the sixth one which I couldn’t read because I was on holiday.

Harry Potter Hype (3)

And so it continued …After reading the second one I couldn’t wait for the third to begin and I grabbed for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban. I stayed up till all hours reading it and personally it’s the best out of the first 3 of course I’d seen the movie so I knew about Peter Pettigrew but I became confused because I thought that Sirius was was a werewolf and was disguised as Lupin. The reason it was my favourite was because you feel against Sirius until we actually meet him and i love the scenes in the shrieking shack because everyone turns on Wormtail eventually and it’s magical!

The Goblet of Fire didn’t beat the Prisoner of Azkaban but it came really close. If you love competitions in a story you feel tense and desperate to see who wins in the triwizard tournament. Mystery comes in once again with ‘Who bewitched the goblet and entered Harry? along with the mystery of Rita Skeeter  and the exciting ,brutal ending gets you hyped up for what will happen next.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry,good old Potter. So I had been wrong about  goonextd old famous Harry Potter and I reached for the next book…

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is most memorable for me by the whole flying car experience,I remeber in After School Club they had only one film and that was it. I remember how I  used to know the words off by heart and I would watch it every afternoon simply because I am like a moth to television screens. I can’t staring at them and it really annoys my friends they like to shout “Earth to Susie,earth to Susie are you there ?” I liked the film but when i came to thinking about it before I read the book all that would pop up was a picture of Malfoy looking catiously behind him and I don’t even know why. I do remember the flying car but had know idea which movie it was in.

I liked the Chamber of Secrets because it was a lot more mysterious and frankly a bit less predictable. Up until the end I was like who is it?Who is it,I bet it’s Malfoy.But JK Rowling was wise enough not to blame it on a slytherin but instead make it the accidental fault of sweet,innocent Ginny Weasley and a bit of dark magic from Tom Riddle.

By this stage there was no denying it I was a girl in the desert desperate for an oasis.I ran down stairs to find the next book…
