    Interview with JK Rowling... Stephen Fry: Can we settle an important question?JK Rowling: Yes.Stephen Fry: How do you pronounce your last name?JK Rowling: It is Row-ling. As in rolling pin.Stephen Fry: So if any of you hear someone pronounce her name “Rohw-ling”, you have my permission to hit them over the head with — not with Order of the Phoenix, that would be cruel. Something smaller, like a fridge.

    I finished this book with tears in my eyes and laughter on my lips.Just wow, excellent book!

    I had to re read it. I was in such a nostalgic mood.
  • Navessa
    Seriously, don't read this review if you haven't read the books. The biggest compliment I can think to give an 870 page book is that I wish it had been longer. I wish this had been longer. This book has always been my favorite in the series. Up until it, Harry’s story had been filled with light. Sure, there were some tough parts earlier on, and while it's true that some darkness crept into the ending of the previous installment, for the most pa...

    I cried like a little baby. J.K. Rowling really starts taking the series down a darker road in this book. She is so talented at character development, and it really shines in this book. Here, Harry is 15 years old, and for most of the book, he's whiny and self-centered, just like a typical teenager. I also adore Dumbledore's role in this book--his conversation at the end with Harry put me to tears. Rowling did an amazing job with the character of...

    “Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?""Yes.""You called her a liar?""Yes.""You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?""Yes.""Have a biscuit, Potter.”This is my favourite book in my favourite series of all time. It's so rich of detail, so full of mysterious and often dark magic. So much character development, so many brave people sticking up for their friends. It's also the book that introduces us to my most hated fictional c...

    Dear Dolores Umbridge, (view spoiler)[R.I.P. Sirius Black. Best friend, godfather, member of the Order. The injustice of it all hurts me every time I read this book. You will never be forgotten. <3 (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To Youok. I will start by saying that this is one of my least favorite books in the series, and that isn't because it's bad, BECAUSE IT IS DEFINITELY NOT. It's mainly due to the fact that I hate Umbridge more than words can translate, and having to read about her so much just infuriates me, rather than giving me warm fuzzies the entire time I'm reading.That being said, here are some of my thoughts on t...

    I know the feeling dear, Harry! 🙁Happy Potter Reading! Mel 🖤🐾🐺
  • Emily (Books with Emily Fox)
    This book used to be my least favorite book of the series and after rereading it, I can't understand why... I loved it!So many good things I had forgotten started here like the DA meetings. I still absolutely hate Umbridge and I'm out of my reading slump (hopefully!).
  • Kassidy
    SO many feels!!!I really love this book. The plot and world gets so complex, and I'm very happy to get answers and explanations at the end!This one was a crazy, scary, and ... frustrating.. (Umbridge) ride, but still so fun.

    ❝Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.❞ Rating: ★ ★ ★ I feel like I'm going to get attacked for only rating a Harry Potter book 3.75 stars but Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is probably my LEAST favorite of the series thus far. It went by so slow and I felt like too much went on but at the same time nothing really happened. This book could've easily been made at least ...
  • Bookdragon Sean
    Despite this being the longest book in the series, I read it quicker than all the others. Here’s three things I really loved about it: 1. Harry and Sirius- they never had much time together but the time they did have really influenced Harry’s development, a few wise words from a sincere friend (or godfather) can go a real long way. And this scene was perhaps the most powerfully written in the series for me, we all know what happens next: 2. D...

    Angsty Harry is seriously one of the greatest teens ever written.

    I still can't believe my sixth grade self devoured all 870 pages in two sittings. Only you Jo, only you.

    AHHHH I AM FINALLY FINISHD. *collapses in a puddle* Peoples, I usually read a book in a day, two days if it's big, three if it's super huge. THIS BOOK TOOK ME FOREVER. I know there a lot of super-keen Potter fans out there, so, um, you may not want to read this review. But! But! WAIT! The biggest thing you need to know is: I seriously love this series. I do. It's so detailed and thorough and interesting and I totally see why it's captured the wor...

  • Grace (BURTSBOOKS)
    Hello, I think this is my favourite book in the entire series, but also I barely remember what happened because I read most of this over three days while on vacation. All I recall is my parents yelling at me to do something other than read, all that good Sirius, Neville and Ginny content (my three faves), that terribly wonderful frustration that existed every time Umbridge spoke and the introduction of Luna Lovegood. Also, sobbing my eyes out. We...
  • Annie
    hrrmmpp.This is my least favourite of the Harry Potter series, and almost borders on the "don't bother". It is saved only by the virtue that it is a Harry Potter book and moves the series along to the still yet unknown finale.My issues with it:- deals with complex social/political problems in a simplified, extreme, and dichotomous manner- characterisations are too easy/lazy- all good or all bad (with the exception of Snape who's good/evil intenti...

    Umbridge? More like Umbitch.That woman should die. Painfully.

    I know I overwhelmed Goodreads with my abundant reviews this week but I promise this is the last I’ll post until I finish Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince which will probably take a week. Lol.The following is mostly rubbish because I was dreadfully ill when I read the fifth Harry Potter book (my faithful, loyal companion while my own respiratory tract conspired against me.) Merlin’s Beard! What has happened to my English? It has fully c...

    Among the last 3 books in the Harry Potter series, this is the one that I respect the most. It's not without its fault. But naming the faults will not advance anything,especially for people who are fans.Albus Dumbledore really gets a lot of focus. He does the kind of things that really bring a lump to the throat. Because of him, I've never really regretted rereading this book oh so many times.Harry's Godfather also gets his time to shine. Books 3...

    Edit : Rounded it up into 5 starsREVIEW TO COME TOMORROWEdit : Guys, I'm sorry that I have to review it on Monday. There's blackout here ;_; 4.9 Stars 'Yeah' said Harry, 'but you, unlike me, are a git, so get out and leave us alone.' I supposed to post the review yesterday but there was a blackout while I was reviewing and you can imagine how pissed I was when suddenly my computer was off and the review was already quite long. I was like this : ...

    Me: Okay, I’m not going to have ANY time to read for the next two weeks, and I’m close to falling behind on my reading goal, so I should be careful what I pick up.Me to me: 870 pages sounds about right.https://emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.co...I don’t even know if I can write a cohesive review of this. I’ve been reading it for SO LONG. The notes I took at the beginning have long since disappeared and I just can’t remember vast swaths of t...
  • James
    Book Review 4 out of 5 stars for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the 5th book in the original 7 book "Harry Potter" young adult fantasy series published in 2003 by J.K. Rowling. I cannot believe this is over 15 years old, as I think about what I want to put in my review. Given it's HP, and everyone does review on it, I'm keeping it short. A few things I loved about this book:1. Dolores Umbridge is awesome. Awesome as a villain, that i...

    I finished this book and now I’m sad AF. I seriously cried through so much of the last few hours of the audiobook. One of my favorite characters is gone, and I had to listen to Umbridge for hours and hours. Yeah. Sad AF.
