I think this one is now my favorite. I love learning about all the history and everything that has lead up to the current state of things. I also loved reading about all of the relationship drama and teen hormones and silly moments like that. It was sort of a relative calm before the storm, and I really appreciated that. The tension in this book between Harry and Draco is just so engrossing and fantastic, and Slughorn was such an interesting and enjoyable addition to the cast of characters. I absolutely loved this book.
