Harry Potter taxonomy...

Harry Potter taxonomy… PURE BLOODS - People who have read the books and seen the movies HALF BLOODS - People who have only read the books MUGGLE BORNS - People who have only seen the movies SQUIBS - People who have never read or seen Harry Potter DEATHEATERS - Pure Bloods who hate on Muggle-Borns DURSLEYS - Idiots who hate on Harry Potter (themetapicture.com)
I'm a pureblood, but halfway a death eater, if they call themselves potterheads.
I'm definitely a Death Eater by this chart. I'm sorry, but people that try to say they're a true harry potter fan when they've only seen the movies make me so mad, because I wouldn't have survived growing up if I hadn't started reading those books when I was 8 years old. you don't get it if you don't read it.
Harry Potter... Wait, this makes me a Death Eater? And I believe "Dursleys" have never cracked the spine of the first book and have only seen the movie previews. They have no right to judge. I converted a Dursley once to a pureblood. We're best friends now!

The Harry Potter Prequel, by JK Rowling The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted ‘whoa!’ Sergeant Fisher slammed his large foot on the brake, thinking that the boy who was riding pillion was sure to be flung under his wheels; however, the motorbike made the turn without unseating either of its riders, and with a wink of its red tail light, vanished up the narrow side street. ‘We’ve got ‘em now!” cried PC Anderson excitedly. ‘That’s a dead end!” Leaning hard on the steering wheel and crashing his gears, Fisher scraped half the paint off the flank of the car as he forced it up the alleyway in pursuit. There in the headlights sat their quarry, stationary at last after a quarter of an hour’s chase. The two riders were trapped between a towering brick wall and the police car, which was now crashing towards them like some growling, luminous-eyed predator. There was so little space between the car doors and the walls of the alley that Fisher and Anderson had difficulty extricating themselves from the vehicle. It injured their dignity to have to inch, crab-like, towards the miscreants. Fisher dragged his generous belly along the wall, tearing buttons off his shirt as he went, and finally snapping off the wing mirror with his backside. ‘Get off the bike!’ he bellowed at the smirking youths, who sat basking in the flashing blue light as though enjoying it. They did as they were told. Finally pulling free from the broken wind mirror, Fisher glared at them. They seemed to be in their late teens. The one who had been driving had long black hair; his insolent good looks reminded Fisher unpleasantly of his daughter’s guitar-playing, layabout boyfriend. The second boy also had black hair, though his was short and stuck up in all directions; he wore glasses and a broad grin. Both were dressed in T-shirts emblazoned with a large golden bird; the emblem, no doubt, of some deafening, tuneless rock band. ‘No helmets!’ Fisher yelled, pointing from one uncovered head to the other. ‘Exceeding the speed limit by – by a considerable amount!’ (In fact, the speed registered had been greater than Fisher was prepared to accept that any motorcycle could travel.) ‘Failing to stop for the police!’ ‘We’d have loved to stop for a chat,’ said the boy in glasses, ‘only we were trying -’ ‘Don’t get smart – you two are in a heap of trouble!’ snarled Anderson. ‘Names!’ ‘Names?’ repeated the long-haired driver. ‘Er – well, let’s see. There’s Wilberforce… Bathsheba… Elvendork…’ ‘And what’s nice about that one is, you can use it for a boy or a girl,’ said the boy in glasses. ‘Oh, OUR names, did you mean?’ asked the first, as Anderson spluttered with rage. ‘You should’ve said! This here is James Potter, and I’m Sirius Black!’ ‘Things’ll be seriously black for you in a minute, you cheeky little -’ But neither James nor Sirius was paying attention. They were suddenly as alert as gundogs, staring past Fisher and Anderson, over the roof of the police car, at the dark mouth of the alley. Then, with identical fluid movements, they reached into their back pockets. For the space of a heartbeat both policemen imagined guns gleaming at them, but a second later they saw that the motorcyclists had drawn nothing more than - ‘Drumsticks?’ jeered Anderson. ‘Right pair of jokers, aren’t you? Right, we’re arresting you on a charge of -’ But Anderson never got to name the charge. James and Sirius had shouted something incomprehensible, and the beams from the headlights had moved. The policemen wheeled around, then staggered backwards. Three men were flying – actually FLYING – up the alley on broomsticks – and at the same moment, the police car was rearing up on its back wheels. Fisher’s knees bucked; he sat down hard; Anderson tripped over Fisher’s legs and fell on top of him, as FLUMP – BANG – CRUNCH – they heard the men on brooms slam into the upended car and fall, apparently insensible, to the ground, while broken bits of broomstick clattered down around them. The motorbike had roared into life again. His mouth hanging open, Fisher mustered the strength to look back at the two teenagers. ‘Thanks very much!’ called Sirius over the throb of the engine. ‘We owe you one!’ ‘Yeah, nice meeting you!’ said James. ‘And don’t forget: Elvendork! It’s unisex!’ There was an earth-shattering crash, and Fisher and Anderson threw their arms around each other in fright; their car had just fallen back to the ground. Now it was the motorcycle’s turn to rear. Before the policemen’s disbelieving eyes, it took off into the air: James and Sirius zoomed away into the night sky, their tail light twinkling behind them like a vanishing ruby.
Hunger Games Trilogy
Worth Reading, The Hunger Games, Books Worth, Hunger Games Trilogy, Books Series, Hunger Games Series, Movie, Favorite Books, Suzann Collins
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins..... MY FAVORITE BOOKS IN THE ENTIRE WORLD! March 23 people. The hunger games movie. Dying of trying to wait.
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins books worth reading
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mocking Jay by Suzanne Collins: The best book series I've read since Harry Potter. They are all very violent, but amazingly written with a very thought inspiring plot. A lot of discussion could come from these books. I'm very excited about the movie! Collins also has a children's series, Gregor the Overlander. I actually read this series first and didn't even realized it was the same author until I finished The Hunger Games series. I recommend this series!!
Running With Scissors

Running with Scissors - One of my favorite books. Movie wasn't so great
Hard to believe this is a true story, so worth reading. Augusten Burroughs is VERY good.
Running with Scissors: A Memoir by Augusten Burroughs http://www.amazon.com/dp/031242227X/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_1mjbub00XR5SE Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist. The funny, harrowing and bestselling account of an ordinary boy’s survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.
running with scissors - augusten burroughs. dysfunctional family memoir that is as funny as it is shocking. don't watch the movie. it's really bad.

Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. Warning: In the beginning of the book you'll wonder how the plot relates to Wizard of Oz. Stick with it. It'll make sense later.
First book is the only one worth reading.
Sequel to Wicked
