But I've been avoiding The Deathly Hallows. Mostly because of how horrible The Order of the Phoenix was and while The Half-blood Prince was better I wasn't holding out much hope. So I read Bujold's first The Sharing Knife: Beguilement and planned on just getting the second one in hardback as I enjoyed the first book a lot. But then John bought the copy of The Deathly Hallows from our grocery store. AND everyone here on LJ has been saying it was actually quite good and ties things up really well.
