In which Harry Potter's Wheezy finds him

30 Days of Harry Potter - day 27: Top 3 favorite chapters It is hard to limit myself to just three. Deathly Hallows, Chapter 33 - The Prince's TaleIn which all is revealed about SnapeDeathly Hallows, Chapter 19 - The Silver DoeIn which Ron returns to Harry and Hermione, saves Harry and destroys Slytherin's locketOrder of the Phoenix, Chapter 23 - Christmas on the Closed WardIn which we meet the Longbottoms (I would have forgotten about this one until I had to come up with a favorite missing scene!)...

'But as they left, Harry was sure he saw Neville slip the sweet wrapper into his pocket.'

30 Days of Harry Potter - day 25: Was there a scene in the books that wasn't in the movies, but you wish it was? Gilderoy LockhartI wish we'd had an opportunity in the Order of the Phoenix film to see St. Mungo's, meet the Longbottoms and re-meet Gilderoy Lockhart.   Alice & Frank LongbottomI love to see the wizarding versions of things like government buildings, pubs and bookstores, so why not a hospital? The scene is not essential to the plot of Order of the Phoenix, but it is pretty darn essential to the character development of Neville Longbottom,...

You'd think a bit of snogging would cheer her up!

Last night I decided I wanted to go to the movies, so I searched online to find all of the movies that were playing in a two-town radius, then narrowed that down to the ones I wanted to see. It came down to: SuperbadThe Simpsons MovieHairsprayBecoming JaneThe Nanny Diaries So I went to see... Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Again. It was nice, though, because I got a private showing. Apparently no one else wants to see months-old movies on Labor Day night (Labor Night?). In my defense, I guessed that it would be interesting to see...

Weasley is our king!

To begin with, I have to say that I really liked the movie version of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It is a huge challenge to turn an 896-page book into a 138-minute movie and they did pretty well with it. I do still miss the things that had to be cut, though. I shall hide further discussion of this subject in the extension, for those of you who have not seen the film yet....

Is this a kissing book movie?

Hooray! Lots of action and tension... and I don't just mean the awful, awkward Harry/Cho kissing situation. And while we're at it... [new international trailer via dollsome]...

'Give her hell from us, Peeves.'

For more than a month now, I have been working my way through the book-on-tape of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It's such a long book that I haven't reread it since it first came out, and I thought I probably ought to have a refresher before the movie comes out. The book-on-tape format works well for a book like this - I just pick up where I left off every time I get in the car and don't have to lug that huge tome around. I started it before driving up to Michigan for Christmas, have...

'One more lesson like that and I might just do a Weasley.'

Potterholism as a cause for insomnia

I am awake and online at 3am because I remembered reading online that the prophecy in Book 5 was a lot less disappointing if you read very carefully everything that the Death Eaters say in the prophecy/fight scenes. The person who wrote this suggested rereading that section (or the whole book), and said that we should get it then. I did so, and I still didn't get it, and now I can't find the original post for more clues. I don't know if it was a blog-post or a comment somewhere, and neither Google nor Daypop has been helpful, and...

This post is going into hiding to prevent spoilers for those who haven't read Book 5. Read on, MacDuff....

No, I will not shut up about this

But look, I'm so nice that I put questions 9-21 in the MORE... section, so you don't have to read them if you don't want to. That is how much I love you, dear readers. Beware minor Book 5 spoilers... 1. Favorite HP Book (1-4) and Why? Prisoner of Azkaban because it's more exciting and hopeful than Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets. Goblet of Fire is good but long. It has parts that are better than PoA, but taken as a whole, PoA comes out on top. 2. Favorite Character(s) (try to stick with 3 or less) Ron Weasley,...

It is time for me to tell you...

Well, I'm done. And it was a really good book. Like Goblet of Fire, it dragged a bit at some parts in the middle, but finished with a bang. I laughed a lot (though less than in previous books), I cried a bit, and chapter 37 gave me goosebumps. I can't wait for Book 6 and am rather frightened that J.K. Rowling doesn't have a deadline for the last two books. I don't, however, think that Order of the Phoenix was a great book. I enjoyed it as an established Harry Potter fan. I liked to see the continuing adventures...

The spirit was willing, but...

Around 5am, I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer, so I went to sleep, about halfway through the book. Latest favorite bit: "Have a biscuit" (p. 248) I'm trying not to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't read it yet, but if you have, you should get it. I am in the late 400s now, and things are looking Extremely Bad. Romantic entanglements are annoying and disgusting me. No one is dead yet, but I'm hoping it will be a surprise death when it comes, because if it's the person they seem to be suggesting, it is shaping up...

Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure

My favorite line so far? "What are Fred and I, next-door neighbors?" (p. 163) Loving it. Loving Ron, loving Weasleys, loving Tonk. Putting up with that rat Potter. I resent that everyone seems to think that good things happen to Ron because of Harry's deficiencies and not because of Ron's own qualities. Jerks....

Annoying loud girl jumping up and down at Waldenbooks? That would be me

Stood in line for an hour behind the likes of Mr and Mrs JDay, but now we haves it and it's our precioussssssssssszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... Pardon me, nodding off already. Not sure I'll make it to the end, although Becky and I made a Meijers-run to stock up on supplies to get us through the night. I will be munching almonds and cottage cheese and honeydew (although not all together) and chocolate to get me through the tragic death of Whoever It May Be. Ah, the suspense....

Don't call me this weekend; I'm busy

I can already predict that I will be nocturnal this weekend. My schedule will be thrown off by staying up until 1am to pick up my copy of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (not hairy pottery), then not being able to sleep until I've finished the 900+ page monster. When I finally got my hands on Goblet of Fire, I started in the morning or afternoon and stayed up until 4am, caught up in the book and sniffling. This time, Becky and I have each reserved our own copy so that I don't have to wait for...

With a Friend Like Harry, who needs other reading material?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix comes out June 21, 2003. I know, I know, I'm the last person in the world to know this, but I heard on the radio that it was coming out in the fall. It didn't occur to me that they were talking about the French translation. Duh. Amazon gives us a sneak peek at a few lines of the text, including the opening: "The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive.... The only person...

Very Harry

There's a possibility that EITHER our old pal J.K. is planning on an eighth book OR they're just trying to cover things up by registering a lot of titles for upcoming Harry Potter books. Personally, I'm disappointed to hear them all at once and have the surprise spoiled. Just hurry up and get the fifth one out!...

Big week for Potterites

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire finally comes out in paperback today, years and years and years after it came out in hardcover. Notice no fifth book yet. Hmph. Anyway, anyone know what tomorrow is? It's J.K. Rowling's and Harry Potter's shared birthday! So I suggest we all write J.K. some birthday greetings that say "Hurry up and finish the goldarned fifth book. Srah is impatient. Happy birthday." Seems like they could have delayed the release by a day, just to match them up......

Harry up!

If I were an author, I think I would be pretty jealous of J.K. Rowling. Everyone else's editor/publishing house is on their backs, pushing them to put out another book. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was, I believe, originally supposed to come out last summer. Then they pushed it to the fall. Then to spring/summer of 2002. Then September. Now the vague "fall 2002", which is what the clerk at Border's told me on Saturday. I've heard rumors that she hasn't even started it yet. And is the publisher going to complain? No. "Oh, you're not going...

It's 2002

It's 2002. What does this mean? Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones (Spring) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Summer) Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Fall) What are you looking forward to in 2002?...
