Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Rating: 5/5 (would it be anything else? It's a Potter book)
I'm enjoying re-reading this series so much I've stopped after this one for a little while because I don't want it to end just yet!
Although I love this series so much I made butterbeer cupcakes (find my post on that, including the link to the recipe, here) this book is definitely not the best book in the series. Don't get me wrong, I still love it dearly and think it's a truly fantastic book in comparison to other books but it's not in comparison to the other Potters. When I was discussing this with a friend she pointed out how this one and the 6th one seem to not have been edited as well as they maybe could've been because they were trying to release them quickly and I see her point. It seems like a very long book and although the majority of what happens does need to be there, the book seems slightly longer than it needs to be.
Having said that, I still love it and I stand by the fact I think everyone should read the Harry Potter series no matter how much they like reading. It truly is more than a series, it's a world. And I for one would love to belong to that world in a way that is more than reading them, watching them and re-creating as much as I can.
