5 down, 2 to go.
I love the Harry Potter books. Don’t get me wrong. Buuuuuut, for some reason I’m almost burnt out with reading this year….
So, don’t be surprised if I end up doing a surprise review next week on a book much smaller….
On to The Order of the Phoenix review….
Genre: YA Fantasy
Swearing: 5 h***, 4 d***, and 1 “effing” (exactly written like that, but you know what it’s hinting at)
Negative content: You know who is back. There’s some unfairness going all around. Harry feels quite abandoned, even by people once close to him. A new teacher inflicts cruel punishments on the students, including writing with their own… blood. There’s sneaking around behind adults, attempted murder, and murder. A little bit of mind control. And of course magic- both good and dark.
Sexual content: This book is where (spoilers) Harry gets his first date and smooch. But nothing beyond that. Because the boys in this story, in the words of Miss Granger, “have the emotional range of a teaspoon”
Rating: 📚📚📚📚📚📚📚of 8 (Eight points=Creative story idea, dynamic for it’s genre, easy to read, enjoyable, strong lead characters, good villain, believable and shipable romance, overall execution)
*While there’s the blossoming of a romantic plot on one end- never been a big fan of Harry and Cho.
Why does every book get bigger? Yikes.
