Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)

My Favourite Bits

Dumbledore turning up at the Dursley’s house.

“I don’t mean to be rude -” he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

“-yet, sadly, accidental rudness occurs alarmingly often,” Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely. “Best to say nothing at all, my dear man. Ah, and this must be Petunia.”

The Dursley’s reaction when they found out that Harry had been left a house and all of Sirus’ possessions.

Ginny’s hatred towards Phlegm Fleur.

Fred and George’s joke shop!

Why Are You Worrying About You-Know-WHo?

You SHOULD Be Worrying About

U-No-POO

the Constapation Sensation That’s Gripping the Nation!

 

Bits I Forgot About

The Minister’s for Magic meeting with the Muggle Prime Minister when they got appointed. I especially enjoyed the Muggle Prime Minister objecting to Kingsley Shacklebolt being removed from his office, not realising that he was a wizard.

Appartating lessons – lots of people spinning around and not going very far. Except Ernie MacMillan who is pirouetting into the hoop.

Kreacher working in the kitchens with Dobby, and the two of them spying on Malfoy.

Professor Trelawney telling Harry that she missess having him in her lessons because he was a wonderful Object.

Rosmerta being put under the Imperius Curse.

 

My Favourite Quotes

“Yes,” said Harry stiffly.

“Yes, sir

“There’s no need to call me “sir”, Professor.”

 

“I’m a teacher!” he roared at Harry. “A teacher , Potter! How dare yeh threaten ter break down my door!”

“I’m sorry, sir,” said Harry, emphasising the last word as he stowed his wand inside his robes.

Hagrid looked stunned.

“Since when have yeh called me “sir”?”

“Since when have you called me “Potter”?”

 

“Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it’s true that you’ve got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest.”

Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them.

“What did you tell her?”

“I told her it’s a Hungarian Horntail,” said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. “Much more macho.”
