It’s been over a month since I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I have not blogged a word about it. I think it’s mostly because I am in denial that there are no more books to look forward to, even the appeal of MuggleCast and PotterCast have worn off, mainly due to the fact that there are no more theories or predictions to discuss. I will eventually go back and read the entire series (again) as I do with my annual journey through Lord of the Rings. I am hungry for new books that take me to magical places with heroes who have all the odds stacked against them. I guess there is always Wizard Rock.

I am currently reading “The Dark is Rising” series by Susan Cooper – suggested by my sister Linda. I am now on book 2 of that series. That should keep me busy for a while.

Back to the point of this post. There are several parts of the Deathly Hallows that are most inspiring for me. Of course the end of the book where Harry is walking towards his death- and his family is with him is probably my favorite part. I am most proud of Molly Weasely and Neville Longbottom for the brave and fierce part they played in the final battle. Molly proved fatal when Bellatrix threatened to kill Ginny – and of course the “stay away from my daughter you BITCH” was priceless coming from Molly’s mouth. We didn’t hear profanity much during this series, but when it did show up, it was more than appropriate.

And of course, Neville cutting the head off of Nagini was awesome. The best part of all with Neville was the fact that during the final battle, when everyone else was battling with fatal spells – shooting them back and forth at each other – he shows up with a plant. Gotta love him. 🙂
