I just finished it a few hours ago. Oh my God it was perfect wasn't it? Of course, I'd always like more, more at the end, a longer epilogue...you know. But oh you couldn't ask for a happier ending. I sobbed so hard when I closed it. I still don't know what to do with myself. I'll be carrying the book around with me for days I'm afraid. I slept with it last night when I couldn't stay up any longer and I've got it in front of me right now. I might even reread it right away, which I've never done with the other books. Someone told me a few days ago, before I started wearing headphones whenever I went out in public, that Ron dies protecting Hermione. So given that there had been real leaks I was on edge through the who book. I figured, she won't kill Harry, so she'll kill Ron instead. I'm so glad she didn't. SO GLAD. I was so worried that the book would get spoiled, I wish I would have had the leisure to take days to read it (if I could stand it) but I was too afraid to take my time. It's so painful now that it's done. A bittersweet ending for sure. I want to make icons for it so bad but I have to leave soon and don't have time. I hope it wasn't spoiled for you, I haven't checked LJ in days so I'm behind on my friends list.

So were you happy with it? Tell me your thoughts! Or I will wait for the review I suppose. :)

Maybe if I tell you my thoughts I can organize my mind to actually post something without sounding like a babbling child :P

I wasn't spoiled. I didn't get much time to browse the internet while in Oregon and when I got home, I only went to the internet to read fan fiction.

I loved it! Best of the series I think. Yeah, it could have been longer and I think the epilogue was pretty weak, but overall I adored it!
This book was brutal wasn't it? The Twins, oh those poor Twins :(
Only them though, would mock a blasted ear ;P
Mad-Eye's death hit me, he's my favorite Order member (if you don't count Remus, the Weasleys, and Minerva). Speaking of, REMUS AND TONKS!!!! I wasn't surprised one got killed, but both?! What about Teddy?! The epilogue was 19 years later but you don't find out if he lived with Harry at that time! Did Harry adopt him? I want to know!

Draco, omg! He was kinda the same as in the other books, not really matured until the very end but I adored reading him. Showing what we know from HBP, that he wasn't into the DE thing and only in it because of his family. He was reluctant to say it was Harry when they captured the Trio, I loved that! The RoR part, where Harry saved him! I squealed out loud at that point!
And in the epilogue where he nodded to Harry, they are on civil terms now! ACK!!! :D :D

Do not get me started on Neville :D

Uh..I could go into a long and babbling post but I won't. I'll try to organize my mind and update this post with my thoughts on the book. Just know that I freaking loved it!

Also, did you cry as much as me when Hedwig died? WAHH!!!

Yeah, the epilogue was king of confusing, I wish it explained a little more. It didn't sound like Harry adopted Teddy since James was talking about wanting Teddy to come live with them and stuff. I wonder who raised him then. I don't think Harry would have been ready to take care of a baby after all that happened and what would have to be done. Do you know who Victoire is? I was confused about that who thing with her and Teddy snogging, lol. I wonder if JK Rowling with answer little stuff like this...

I could not believe that the whole 7th year core group of the DA survived! I was expecting either Neville or Ron to die. Yay Neville! I was so proud of him at the end.

I agree, I think this is the best one. I might start rereading it today. I have so many other books i need to read though!

Hedwig...oh I did cry. I remember Mom was fixing dinner and I just made this whimpering noise and she was like, "What? Who died?" and I said, "Hedwig!" and then just started crying. Poor little owl. I wish she had been there at the end with Harry and Dumbledore.

Same. I was on the couch and mom was reading another book and I started crying a little. "Who died?"
"HEDWIG!"
"Oh, is that all"
Wahh! D:
Yeah, it would have been nice if Hedwig was on his shoulder while he was talking to Dumbledore.

Jo has to explain so many unanswered questions.

I read on Jo's website that she is coming to the US in October. She's going to be in LA I think but it's only for schoolchildren. Scholastic is having a contest that starts July 30th to go see her in NYC. I'm definitely entering, that would be such a dream come true!
