Review: For Half Blood Prince I went to the same shopping centre, this time buying two copies, the regular edition and the adult edition, so that my mother and I could read the book at the same time. I reprised my “sitting at the cafe” reading for the first part of the book, but went home later in the day to read the rest. I don’t think I quite finished the book on the day of release, leaving some for the next day.
For Half Blood Prince I foolishly went on the internet right before cycling to the shopping centre, and saw “the” spoiler that was floating around for this book. I was annoyed at that, but reading it with the spoiler in mind actually gave me a perspective on the book which was quite interesting, as I kept trying to read into everything that was happening with the spoiler in mind. I really enjoyed it.
