It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Escapism and Readers Confession.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
In some ways, the lackluster nature of Deathly Hallows was somewhat predictable. The Harry Potter series had been steadily declining in quality since Goblet of Fire, with each new book becoming more long-winded and pointlessly meandering than the previous one. Deathly Hallows, however, marked the nadir of the series. The book was interminably long, and large chunks of its length were made up of an endless camping trip during which nothing of any consequence happened. Potter himself does almost nothing for most of the novel, and then in the end, he defeats Voldemort more or less simply because he is faster on the draw than the evil wizard. Nothing that happens in the book is particularly surprising, or even particularly interesting. The final chapter, which was much hyped as having been written long before, was dull and lifeless. In the end, after all the hype, this book was simply limp and uninteresting, like having a bowl of cold porridge as the dessert following a steak dinner.
