Let's see, the closest book I've got in front of me is Queen's Own, a trilogy by Mercedes Lackey. I'm also wondering why it's on my desk, because I don't remember putting it there.

"And there,” Elcarth said with satisfaction, "Is just the person I was needing."


Also, I saw Half Blood Prince today. Normally I would have been there the day it came out, but I wasn't able to go while in Pittsburgh. I've only just gotten my sister to read HP and she's barely finished GoF.

I was presently surprised and overall I have little complaints. HBP was much better than OoTP - when it came out I was practically rabid throughout the whole movie. *Spoilers* I suppose, if you continue, but not much. 

 

I was really looking forward to the infiltration at Hogwarts and when Snape reveals that he is the Half Blood Prince, I felt like we had this huge climax leading up to it, and then it was a bit of a let down. I don't even no why they bothered with setting Hagrid's place on fire....Also I don't think they explained enough about the Horcruxes. I mean, IIRC, Dumbledore had pretty much all of them figured out, which he told to Harry. Exactly how is he supposed to know what he's looking for in DH?? Other than those two pieces, I loved it. I cracked up so hard when Ron was under his love spell and after Harry had drunk the Felix potion. I think I actually preferred Daniel Radcliffe that way...

I am deliberately not reading this post because I'm planning to see HP on Sunday!

My sister's seeing it right now. I told her she's not allowed to say anything on pain of terrible suffering leading to death...

You'll have to let me know if you liked it after you go. It really was one of the better ones, so you should be all excited.

I'm so pissed! I got some Gold Class tickets as an award at work a few weeks ago, but it turns out that our local cinema's Gold Class for HP is booked out - for the next two weeks. Fucking hell, I thought a Sunday matinee would be quiet and we'd only have to ring a couple of days ahead - hah!

In a few weeks, though, we'll be going... Can I wait that long, I don't know!
