An epic conclusion to the trilogy.
An amazing sequel that lacks the second book slump.
This book had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning! It's beautifully written, and Sarah J. Maas is a masterful world-builder!
My heart has been shattered!
It's probably been two or three years since I've read this book, and while I've seen the movie countless times, Order of the Phoenix never fails to make me cry whenever Sirius dies. Sirius has such a special place in my heart ever since we meet him in Prisoner of Azkaban, and I will always harbor a small grudge against J.K. Rowling for killing him off; even though I understand her reasoning for it, it's still upsetting every single time.
I read this book back in high school and it opened my eyes. I grew up being taught what was right and what wasn't, and when you do something wrong/bad, those actions have consequences. This book definitely highlights how the actions of bullying and how they can affect the person being bullied. It's raw. And it's one of those stories that more people should read.
