Rating: 9/10

My Thoughts: I know most people have read the books and there's no point in me reviewing them, but a friend asked me to so here goes..

As usual, the writing was incredible! I love how Rowling takes me into the Harry Potter world with her amazing writing and descriptions. I feel like I'm there with Harry, watching him from afar. Not reading about him, but actually watching him. I love books that do that for me, and so I love Harry Potter!

The story is amazing. The twists & turns, the suspense, the adventure and then the side stories about trust and friendship. I just love everything about this book!

Rowling makes the most amazing characters! They're really relatable and real. And each and every one of them is special to the story. 

So if I love the book so much why didn't I give it a five? Well, because I felt like it dragged in some places and I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first two.

Overall, I loved the book and I'd highly recommend it for people who like to read adventure and magical books. BTW there's no age limit, I've found that people of all ages enjoy Harry Potter :)

Exams suck! And I miss blogging!!

I know most of you didn't even notice my absence since no one reads my blog anyway.

But I miss blogging so much! Like, I get waves of nostalgia while studying and I long for my fingers to fly on the keyboard, forming my thoughts into words. But then I remember that I'm having my finals. And my future depends on them because my grades will determine which college I will get into. So I suppress the urge and go back to studying.

I have a few days break in between and I couldn't control myself so I'm writing to let ya'll know that I'm still alive. And I cannot wait for these exams to be over! I'm addicted to reading so of course I squeezed in a couple of hours reading into my study schedule. I finished Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban and now I'm reading Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire and Walking Disaster (Don't judge! I couldn't resist..)

So now I have 2 weeks of final left. I might squeeze in a review of Prisoner of Azkaban. Maybe I'll do it right now.. And then I'll see you guys in June, when the summer vacations start!

Best of luck to everyone else who are having there exams!
