Riddle of a Man - (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince)

It has been close to a month since my last post, but I assure you I have been busy. I have since cracked open a beloved series, right where I left off years ago, and then subsequently closed it within two weeks time. Not bad really considering my last book took me closer to three weeks of on and off reading.

Now, the series in question is one that I'm sure a small handful of you might know. Some of you may recognize the Harry Potter series as having been mildly popular a few years back. I know, I know,  it's somewhat obscure now, but someone needs to review it!

Now, the Harry Potter series has had quite a rocky  history for me. My initial experiences with Harry Potter were reading the first book in middle school (at the time only the first two books were out) and watching the fourth movie (sometime during high school). So it's safe to say that I never really considered myself an authority on the Harry Potter universe. Not like my wife who can quote whole chapters of some of the books and who can place where I am  even with only a few out-of-context excerpts. Personally, I think she's just a few steps down from displaying the Hogwarts house colours in our living room, but I digress.
