Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) | J.K. Rowling
In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Lord Voldemort has returned to the Wizarding world, presenting a threat that neither the magical government nor the authorities at Hogwarts can stop. In response to his reappearance, Dumbledore reactivates the Order of the Phoenix, a secret society which works to defeat the Dark Lord's minions and protect his targetsespecially Harry Potter. But Harry doesnt want to be protected. Even as the Ministry of Magic denies his claims, The Daily Prophet discredits him, and even Dumbledore wont look him in the eye, Harry grows more and more determined to fight his lifelong enemy Voldemortif only he had the weapon the Order is guarding. In the meantime, he visits his godfather at his ghoulish London home, Grimmauld Place, and learns more about Voldemorts deep reach into Wizarding history and the Wizarding world. Back at Hogwarts, Harry must deal with a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a personality like poisoned honey; a surprising new member of the Gryffindor Quidditch team; the possibility of his first real romance; and the looming nightmare of the Ordinary Wizarding Level exams. Hes haunted by dreams of a heavy door at the end of a silent corridor, and a vision of his father and the young Severus Snape that changes everything he thought he knew about them. Even the joy of working with "Dumbledore's Army" -a group of Hogwart's students dedicated to defeating Voldemort- can't dispel the gathering darkness. Soon Harry will discover the true depth and strength of his friends; their boundless loyalty and unbearable sacrifices. His fate depends on them all.

I enjoyed reading this book. I have to say that Harry is a little dramatic at times. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

blurb

Every time I read a Harry Potter book I wish somehow it was real…. Tonks would be my life mentor, Lupin would be the best professor ever, I would plan an epic prank with the Weasley twins on Umbridge and “accidentally” kill her… the entire world Rowling created years ago captivates so many readers even now and will no doubt continue to do so for YEARS to come. We‘re all looking for a way to escape and for us amazing people, it‘s through books 😂

I bought a load of keys from Litjoy a while back and gave them to Mum so that I could "earn" them by doing various things.

Although technically I didn't meet the goals I set, I did make a lot of effort, so Mum agreed to let me have this one based on Professor Umbridge's room ??

slategreyskies Very cool! And it sounds like you made progress toward your goals, which is definitely something to celebrate! 🙌 ✨ 2mo

📚Tagged book but also enjoyed The Trouble with Goat and sheep
🏰 I love the world of HP, the characters and the story. In this particular book we know the strengths and weaknesses of each character; how they worked together, students and professors to resolved the situation. I enjoyed the interaction between Professor McGonagall, Dumbledore and how these two faced Dolores Umbridge. Then, we have the HP loss😢

Thank you @Eggs 🥰

TheSpineView I loved Hello Stranger. Thanks for playing! 9mo

August review😳
This is a re-read for me. As expected, I loved not maybe as some previous books but I still think this is a well developed magic world with wonderful characters. The audiobook has an amazing narrator. 4.5⭐️

I‘m rereading HP as the illustrated editions are published and the illustrations are amazing and adds to the story.

After last book‘s ending, HP has spent the summer with the Dursley‘s and with hardly any contact with his friends and Sirius, he‘s feeling alone. HP has reached 15 yrs and is also a moody teen.

For me this book is about friendship and how your true friends are the ones that are there in the hard times.

DogMomIrene Part of me wants to wait for all of them to be published before I begin the reread. But the illustrations look so captivating. 13mo

What do you do on shitty weeks? Listen to Potter at bed and on your commute, stream it while you work from home😂 Christmas night left much to be desired and it has gone down from there. Kiddo is having the worst week in the history of ever 😂🤦‍♀️ hoping switching to the big boy bed Sunday helps!

CaitZ I'm sorry you're having a hard time. Hope the book gives you some comfort and everything rights itself soon. 1y

🌟🌟🌟 1/2

Probably one of my least favorites from the entire series which is why it took me ages to finish. Harry & Hermione are SUPER moody. Tensions are high and don‘t get me started on Umbridge. Still a good book in a fantastic series. It‘s the in between for me of transition. Can‘t wait (eventually) for Half Blood which is my second favorite 😍

One of my favorite moments below ⬇️

Tonight, I‘m sharing my reading progress. I finally got back to reading this book again. I had 21 hours left in the audiobook before and now, I have 18 hours left. I‘m making progress but I feel like I‘m making slow progress because I haven‘t been reading this book every night but also, this is a long book. This audiobook is 24 hours long so it might take awhile for me to finish it.

Tonight, I‘m sharing my reading progress for a book I‘m currently reading. I listened to this book tonight while playing Candy Crush on my phone so I made a lot of progress in this book and I made it up to level 860 in my game. It‘s been a long time since I played this game but I‘ve started playing again.

I started this book after finishing the 4th book but I forgot to post my reading progress for this book. I haven‘t listened to any more of it since then. I didn‘t read any of it on Thanksgiving or Black Friday. I‘m not going to read any of it tonight either but I‘m hoping to get back to reading more of this book soon. I really enjoyed what I‘ve listened to so far. I want to know what happens next in the book.

I'm traveling and for the past few days I've been in Seattle. It's been such a long time since I experienced cold weather in the fall. I'm loving it and exploring the city on for had given me time to finally finish the 5th book in the Harry Potter series. I kid you not, I've been listening to this for over a year.

The first half was a no go because of the whinging Teen Harry spouts. The second half was more enjoyable but not the escapist fun it would have been if I wasn‘t comparing Umbridge to M Taylor Green.

The fifth installment of the Harry Potter series is a personal favorite. We learn more about why Harry and Lord Voldemort are strongly connected and get a firmer grasp on the realities of a world where the dark lord has returned.

This book is probably my favorite of the series. I know a lot of people find it annoying how whiney Harry is in this book, and the end is a bit depressing. But I think this one has some peak Sassy Harry moments. Plus Harry and the others are finally far enough into their magical studies that their abilities can really start to be showcased. There is quite a lot that hits you right in the justice feels, but also a lot of very satisfying comeuppance
