It’s sort of weird how Umbridge disappears for like half the book? And is it just me, or does Harry get less insufferable after she makes him do lines?

Think “Chronicals of Narnia” with cynicism and self-hatred instead of Christianity.

I hadn’t read this one in a long time! My heart just about broke when Neville stood up to the gang– and then was awarded the winning ten points. And when Hermione was commended for her logic, and Dumbledore recognized how Ron was always being overshadowed. I like the Mirror, too. I think it is a really absurd plot convention that Voldemort would live in the back of someone’s head for a year unnoticed, though. I mean come on? For real?

I saw something on Tumblr about the Draco Malfoy books and this one is called Draco Malfoy and the Spurned Handshake (or something like that) and that is some funny shit.

Yes, again. I have needed some escapist reading lately and Harry Potter never disappoints.
