Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Well, like any other Harry Potter book, this one holds your attention and turns out to be a speedy read despite being more than 700 pages in length. My problem with it was that it seemed like nothing happened for most of the book - just camping out in the woods. Also, the summer chapters before Harry goes back to Hogwarts always irked me, and these chapters have steadily increased with each new novel. Let's just say not much time is spent in the castle in this one.

But, since it's a Harry Potter book, I give it a thumbs up.

I saw an entry where Emma wonders what should be done about this group...I say we keep updating.

I'm currently reading 100 Years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez...stay logged in for my review on this classic [after all, it was an Oprah's book club selection]

YAY DAVID! I'm so glad someone wrote in this thing! And I totally agree... there was far too much time wandering around in the forest, not enough time at Hogwarts. I finally started to really enjoy the book once they reached Hogwarts and the awesomeness ensued. How great was Neville? Hahaha... As for the ending, I do like that Harry lived and I thought the scene where he was marching out to his "death" was really great. The epilogue was okay, not great and not horrible either. I'm not sure how I really feel about it. And I was REALLY REALLY sad about Lupin/Tonks... why? I always wished there was more Lupin! Anyways, I'm rambling... As for what I'm currently reading... got any suggestions? I've hit a bit of a dry spell and need some reading material!!

hmm I do like 100 years, but it can be a pretty slow read so I'm not too sure it's good for ending a dry spell :/
