Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Author
J.K. Rowling
Review
Harry sees Dumbledore over summer and sees his hand all black. He is worried and Dumbledore also stays away for long periods at a time. Later, he tells Harry that he is looking for Horcruxes to weaken Voldemort. Then, Dumbledore drinks from a lake that he thinks has a Horcrux. It was a trap, and later Snape kills him. It is sad but good. I liked the book.

Review
Sirius Black, Harry's godfather, lets Dumbledore use his house as the hq for the Order of Phoenix. That is a group that is trying to stop Voldemort from taking over the world. Voldemort has a connection between Harry, so he pretends to see something so Harry goes to the Ministry. He later finds a prophecy that Voldemort wants but is in danger. Members of the Order go, and Sirius dies. It is sad but the story is good. I really recommend this book.

The End - Series of Unfortunate Events
Author
Lemony Snicket
Review
This was a good book. It was about 3 orphans that were castaway with their arch nemesis on an island with very primitive people. The people had very strict rules about what people could have. Eventually everything was cast upon their shores. This book has lots of adventure and fun.

Review
This was a good book. It had lots of action and excitement. It explained the business of whale fishery and the perils. The story was based on a magnificently powerful whale who was never caught. He destroyed ships easily. In the end, no one ever caught the great fish.
