So first off the confession: I am relatively sure this was my first read through. I remember the night this book came out. I went to the midnight event with a friend even though I didn’t have a book reserved. I remember when she came bursting into our room into the whee hours of the morning sobbing that Dumbledore was dead (honestly if you don’t know it yet it’s not my problem). I’m relatively sure I watched the movie. Okay so yes I am still fighting off the last of the sniffles. I have not watched or read anything about the seventh year I’ve only heard things. Things like that Snape was good all along and the crazy fan girls were vindicated. I looked at Ben at one point tonight and said I will never like Snape. He is like the brutal soldier in movies who hates everything and enjoys the fighting. He might be fighting for the good guys but the hatred still boils inside you. If Rowling manages to win me over in number 7, well she has already earned her fame. Oh I do have another confession! Even though I knew the story of this book I totally forgot that the Half-Blood Prince was Snape! I can’t imagine the next book honestly and so I will cut this short and go disappear.
