Synopsis from Goodreads:
It is the middle of the summer, but there is an unseasonal mist pressing against the windowpanes. Harry Potter is waiting nervously in his bedroom at the Dursleys’ house in Privet Drive for a visit from Professor Dumbledore himself. One of the last times he saw the Headmaster was in a fierce one-to-one duel with Lord Voldemort, and Harry can’t quite believe that Professor Dumbledore will actually appear at the Dursleys’ of all places. Why is the Professor coming to visit him now? What is it that cannot wait until Harry returns to Hogwarts in a few weeks’ time? Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts has already got off to an unusual start, as the worlds of Muggle and magic start to intertwine…
J.K. Rowling charts Harry Potter’s latest adventures in his sixth year at Hogwarts with consummate skill and in breathtaking fashion.
“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”
Again, I do not know what to say other than you should definitely read this series. It doesn’t matter how old you are. I have yet to hear someone say that they read these books and disliked them. It’s just not possible.
Also, I believe this is my favourite book in the series. They’re kind of ALL my favourites though…

Love this series! Are you re-reading or first time reading HP?
I read them years ago (when they were first published) but I don’t think I ever actually finished them! Just little bits of them here and there, and then of course I watched all the movies when those came out. So I suppose this is my first FULL read of the series and it was so magical 🙂 I loved it.
