Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire–J.K. Rowling

Lord Voldemort is looking for trouble again. In the fourth installment of the Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemorts supporters are being a little more obvious that the Dark Lord is rising once again and pulling stunts in highly publicized places and events.

The kids are less kids now and reaching adult status as they are continually forced to grow up even more each year, but in their fourth year at Hogwarts Harry is forced to enter the Triwizard tournament when someone else puts his name in the Goblet of Fire.

Here we once again meet Cedric Diggory, Hufflepuff hunk and the other Hogwarts champion. This boy jumps out of trees and is smarter than he lets on. Not to mention he’s a stone cold fox. Hogwarts is hosting the event which means that two other foreign witchcraft and wizardry schools are spending the year with them. Which only makes life harder as their hormones are going nuts.

Read Ron making a fool of himself, Harry drooling over the wrong girl, and Hermione get a love interest that’s a little too old for her.

This book is amazing in that it’s so much more for an adult audience than the first three and that you get to endure one of the worst fights the dream team has ever gone through.

Plus Viktor Krum is a babe in the way that he can’t really speak English. (And I know, I’m too old for them now, but when I was reading this I was fourteen or fifteen, so it’s not weird. lol)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban–J.K. Rowling

This one is my personal favourite of the Harry Potter books. Probably because she didn’t start killing off my favourite characters just yet, and there is no Voldemort in this one.

Harry is in his third year at Hogwarts and enjoying his time away from the Dursley’s immensely. Especially after he accidentally expanded his Aunt Marge into a human balloon….

There’s another murderous fiend on the block though who is trying to kill Harry. Someone other than Lord Voldemort. None other than the notorious Sirius Black who has just escaped from Azkaban and is looking for some revenge on the boy who lived.

Fantastic book, and it’s just the beginning of all the hell they are about to go through.
