I don't know why I have shyed away from writing reviews of this series after having re-read it for the first time since I was 12. I think its because I don't think I can adequately squeeze all my thoughts and feelings into a book review. Let me think about this some more, and I'll come back to this review. All I can say for sure right now is that this series remains my favourite series of all time. It resonated with me this time as much as it did the first time I read it and I felt so nostalgic reconnecting with all my favourite characters. This series is so whimsical and complex that I just fell in love all over again. Notable favourites are Luna Lovegood and Neville, Dumbledore of course, Lupin, Sirius and perhaps Tonks. Sigh. I am so sad that its over. Also worth noting is that I think HBP is my favourite book in the series. I'll come back to these reviews.
