I finished it at 8:35 AM Saturday, July 21, 2007.

I went to a Harry Potter Party beforehand at Hy-Vee.
It was me and five other friends (plus my mom) and we were the oldest ones there. IT WAS AMAZING.
We beat down those seven year olds in competition for Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans and Free Movie Rentals. We dominated at 20 questions. And we used a lot of temporary tattoos!

1. OH MY GOD. I thought that was pretty amazing.
2. J.K. Rowling seems to have been reading a bit of fanfiction.
3. Damn damn damn damn! I'm really angry that Harry was a horcrux. That's so dumb. He's a person. Bleh.
4. That was such a... Death. There were a lot of dead people. AND Hedwig! And Dobby!! Oh, Dobby's death got to me. I think of all the deaths that one made me cry the most for whatever reason. Fred was a close second. Not that I wasn't basically crying throughout the whole thing.
5. Redemption. So much of it. Kreacher. Was. Amazing. Dumbledore. I know that Dumbledore didn't need redemption. Or at least he didn't until this book. ASSHOLE. But still, I like Dumbledore A LOT. The character depth bothers me in the same way it bothered Harry. Just kind of a hero turning human.
6. Speaking of which Harry Potter stopped being an angsty teenage (mostly, but we all have days like that) I'm  back from my 5th and 6th book disliking him hiatus. And it wasn't Hermoine figuring out everything. I really feel that Harry stepped up to the plate in this book.
7. But back to the redemption. Percy! Best redemption scene EVER. And unlike the Sirius and Remus shippers Rowling did not sink my ship with canon bombs. Because Oliver was there and Penelope wasn't mentioned. AHEM. Dudley too was redeemed.
8. Ghost back story! The Grey Lady and the Bloody Baron. I want fanfics about them.
9. Minor characters were mention a lot. No Blaise Zabini that I remember.
10. Lastly Mrs. Weasley calls Bellatrix a bitch. And then kills her! HA.
