Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows By J. K. Rowling [LibrarythingAmazon]

The blurb on the book jacket says it best: “We now present the seventh and final installment in the epic tale of Harry Potter.” Potterdammerung being what it is, we’re switching up the review style a bit this time around, and will be discussing our impressions of the book behind the cut. Beware: spoilers abound in them thar hills, so if you don’t want to know who dies and who gets smooched, read the book first!

Maximum RideBy James Patterson [LibrarythingAmazon]

In the final book in the Maximum Ride trilogy, it’s do-or-die time for Max and her flock: the bird kids versus the badguys. Unfortunately, tension in the flock leads to the team splitting up, the boys going with Fang and the girls with Max. While the boys are off dealing with killer robots and rallying an army of kids to their cause, Max and the girls are in Europe, breaking down the doors of the villain’s headquarters—and solving mysteries. Like who the heck is Max’s real mom, anyway? And why were they created?

And the big one: is there still enough time to save the world?
