Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)  by J.K. Rowling

As of late, Harry Potter is once again my new favorite thing and I cannot get enough of it. This of course applies to the books, and I read this one very fast and was very intrigued. Something that is very interesting about reading the fifth book right now, is that I am the same age as Harry Potter. I felt that I could relate to his random bout of anger and just overall teenage moodiness. Even though I do not feel like the typical teenager who is just mad and moody all the time, I have my days just like everyone else. Although it does seem like Harry is angry all of the time. I think it is great that young kids read these books because I believe that everybody should read them, but I also now think that it is important to go back and read them at the same age that Harry Potter is, for at least one of the books. Back when I was younger, I remember this one being the beginning of not liking the books as much. I of course loved Harry Potter and read all of the books, but after the fifth book, I found the stories to be frustrating and boring, too much about going after Voldemort when all I wanted to read about was Hogwarts. But reading it now, I do not find it as boring as I remembered, even though it is the beginning of the end for Harry to be able to have a “normal” life at Hogwarts. I also found myself very annoyed by Umbridge, she just continually got in the way of not only Harry’s plans but the plot development and story. Overall I would definitely recommend reading this, although if you do, you should not count on it being as much like the beginning books of the series.
