This book completes J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, which is sad yet exciting and special. This book has been a roller coaster ride (as cheesy as that sounds). I could not have dreamt of a better ending. I love this book so much!

THE BOOK

Gripping, exciting, unique, amazing, emotional

➳ Favourite chapters (and why)? (Spoiler Alert)

  1. The Silver Doe: Just because Ron comes back and they manage to retrieve the sword.
  2. King’s Cross: I really enjoyed this chapter because it is so comprehensive as well as emotional (because of Dumbledore).

 “Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”

– Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”

– Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
