Harry Potter & the Deathly Hollows is the seventh and last (!) book in the series about Harry Potter. As always written by J.K. Rowling, it was first published in 2007. It turned in to two movies; part I came in 2010, and part II came in 2011
Voldemort has taken over most of the wizarding world, having his Death Eaters patrolling everywhere. Harry, Ron, and Hermione has decided to not go back to Hogwarts for their final year, and instead search for horcruxes in the footprints of Voldemort’s life. Having to keep their mission a secret, the journey is long and lonely. And not knowing what exactly they’re looking for, there is little hope in the horizon…
Well…end of an era! Yes, the book came out ten years ago. Yes, it’s the first time I’ve read it. But I can finally join in with all the Potterheads and at least correctly claim that I’ve read all the books! The Deathly Hollows gives a lot more backstory than the movies, and I haven’t read a lot of books that make me tear up as much as this did. Now I’m sad that the story is finished.
The reading challenge: Two points! First: A book written by someone I admire (J.K. Rowling is a genius.). Second point: A book involving a mythical creature – it’s pretty safe to say that the wizarding world has plenty of mythical creatures.
