Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I tried really hard to finish the whole Harry Potter-series before I relocated to Karratha for my second practicum. Unfortunately, I did not manage to finish the last book so that one has to wait until I come back. The pre-final Harry Potter book marked my memory as one of explanation.

As a kid, this was my favourite book. I cannot remember why anymore, but I am glad that this time it brought me back to loving the books again.
