    As there are at least two of us that like HP I thought it might be an idea to have a thread on it especially with the new book coming out in July.

    Anyway this thread is to talk about the book and theories on who is the half blood prince and what is going to happen in book 6!

    I have a list of what is supposed to be contained in the next book or over the next two but would like to hear theories people have before posting these ;)

    So, who do people think is the half blood prince?
    (Not Harry Potter or Voldemort as J.K Rowling has already said it is not either of them)

    well i know absolutly nothing except that somebody dies, and the release date is July 16. I think i have to start re-reading right away......

    half blood prince eh? Hargrid's a half blood, maybe he's some Prince, that would certanly set some of those Hagrid haters on their ears!

    Hagrid is a half blood
    as is Seamus (don't think it is him), Dean Thomas (in the US version of chamber of secrets it was mentioned he was HB but not in the UK version) and Lupin is also a half blood, not many people know this.

    Some people have mentioned it could be Snape because no one knows anything on him, or could just be a totally new character.

    I don't think it is Hagrid, the reason why is because it is far far too obvious of a route to take and Rowling normally doesn't take the obvious route.

    Which he hasn't listened to [face_plain]

    Oh I know who the HBP is. Well pretty sure since there was a book leak and by that my first guess of who was correct. Go me! :p

    lol will black it out incase someone doesn't want to know

    [hl=black] Basically there is an area in the UK which was printing the books and suddenly this town people are all placing bets on who was going to die the person they all were placing bets on was Dumbledore.

    Similiar thing has happened for the HBP, people have suddenly come in after months of no one asking to place bets on Dean Thomas. And some bets have been £1,000, which is alot for a guess ;)
    No one believed me about Dean either, in the US version of COS it was said he was a half blood but not the UK version which was why I went with him ;)[/hl]

    i'm a little disapointed about the death if its true, i wouldn't mind if it happened in the last book but its too soon, there are some other people i wouldn't mind seeing die though :p I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT, need to go order it.

    52 days till the book comes out :D
