Harry Potter Moment of the Week
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Hello all! How is everyone's week going? Well, I'm turning a year older tomorrow so there's that. Getting older is always sort of surreal to me because I still feel (and act) so young sometimes, but really I'm not actually that young anymore >.< Anyway, I'm technically the same age that adult Harry Potter will be this July and naturally, that's a great source of comfort to me ♥
If you could change one thing from book 5, what would it be?
I think that at this point we all know I worship JKR - she can do no wrong in my eyes. As much as I despise the introduction Umbridge in Order of the Phoenix, I understand why she needed to be introduced and why she needed to be the way she was. There is one small thing that I would change in book 5 though:
Forgive me, but I just don't get the point of Grawp. I mean, yeah it's nice that Hagrid has a relative and all but I don't really see the purpose of introducing Grawp here only for him to be forgotten until the very climax of DH. I'm sure Hermione and Harry could have figured out another way to lure Umbridge into the forest for that EPIC scene with the Centaurs without Grawp being in this story at all. Honestly though? I can't help it: Grawp kind of bugs me. I could definitely do without him.
Would you change anything about Order of the Phoenix?
