MONDAY: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Harry is making a stop at the Burrow for a Weasley wedding before striking out on his own to finish things with Voldemort, or die trying. Hermoine and Ron point out that they are better together than any one of them is alone, so they journey together. But the world has become a dark and dangerous place in the years since Voldemort returned. The trio isn't sure whom they can trust. Friends and enemies are found in surprising places, and every interaction is leading to the ultimate showdown of good vs. evil.
This is an immensely satisfying book! I think this is my favorite book in the series. I love the way all the pieces fit together. The story is emotionally charged. There are no guarantees about who will live through the end of the story - not every one does. A completely satisfying end to the series.
(Warner Bros. has chosen to cut this book into two parts for movies to be released in November 2010 and May 2011.)
