If I spent as much time studying for the GRE as I have re-reading and obsessing over Harry Potter these last couple of weeks, I'd be ready to take the damn test right now. Some notes:
Yesterday at work I spent about 7 hours re-reading the Half-Blood Prince. And bursting into tears at my desk multiple times.
*First of all, who the hell is RAB and why does he have the locket Horcrux? And how did he get it? And how did Dumbledore not know!?
*Second of all, I can't believe Snape! I can't believe Malfoy! I can't believe Malfoy was clever enough to use the wardrobes to transport the Death Eaters into Hogwarts, especially when he was so clumsy with the necklace and the wine!
*Third, I think Harry dies, which will make me cry even harder than when Dumbledore died, because Daniel Radcliffe is so beautiful and young (July 23!), and at least Dumbledore had a long and happy life.
*I also want Ron and Hermoine to end up together already. Ron needs Hermoine and frankly, she needs him too. I hope neither of them die.
*Also, is Harry really not going back to Hogwarts? He's still so young! He needs to pass his transfiguration test and there's so much about the Dark Arts that he doesn't know yet, especially how to block his thoughts! And Snape knows this about him and can tell Voldemort and use it against him!
*And who's going to guide him now that Dumbledore is gone? The ministry isn't going to do it, the Weasleys are clueless, the only other people are McGonogall or Tonks and the rest of the Order of the Phoenix. Surely they have to let him in now!
Ok, I need to rest for a minute, I'm getting really worked up here. I'm going to read harder and faster than I ever have once I get my hands on that book!
Apparently I'm not the only going crazy for midnight to come...from Mugglenet.com:
