Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Wow. Just… wow. At first I thought, “SIX HUNDRED PAGES?!” Now I’m like, “Obviously. Six hundred pages. Totally makes sense.” SUCH a good read. Already reaching for Order of the Phoenix.

Harry Potter, here I come. Harry

I actually think it was better that I saw the movies before reading the books—I know the story well, but I’m still discovering so much. Again, I wish I’d just bought the boxed set.

Harry Potter #1

I should have read these years ago. Phenomenal. I wish I’d bought the boxed set. Also, how great is the new Bloomsbury design?!

No. 20 on my challengeEveryone has read the first Harry Potter.
