Hey I already finished my exams but honestly not necessary to read all of it but defos look at a summary of the whole book on litcharts or somewhere to get the big picture of it but that’s just what i did and helps to grasp the whole concept of the book, plus how characters are portrayed earlier and might give reasons for their motivations/general personality and how it lines up with books 9 + 10

but i definitely didnt read it all and still got a good mark so just depends if you want to or not haha x
