" Could you be any more perfect? " said.

" Death had always been a major theme of these books, but Goblet of Fire was really the turning point of the whole series. Not only did Voldemort return, but we found out that the Wizarding World is much larger, and (view spoiler)[ Cedric is killed (hide spoiler)].The characters become more real yet are still stuck in flux between child and adult, which is apropos seeing as how this book is literally in the middle of the series. " said.

Normally, I congratulate myself for finishing a 500 + page novel but after reading 734 pages of this book, my only reaction was “How could it already be over?”The more I read Harry Potter, the harder I fall in love with J.K. Rowling. I couldn’t grasp how she could make this most fantastic series with the most complex and most expertly planned out plot, you could tell she was so sure of the story the moment she started writing the first book. Her attention to detail is more than impressive and the diversity and the realness of her characters are just unbelievable. Every single character (even inanimate ones) is fully developed. I am just absolutely, completely, astonished!

ONTO THE RANDOM STUFF

Lol higlights
1. George and Fred and their skiving snack boxes. These boys are just too funny. “Maybe Harry’s next task is to attack Percy while he’s in the shower.”
2. Professor Dumbledore and his twinkling eyes.
3. Hagrid and Madam Maxine- a match made in er…the mountains?
4. When is Vicky short for Viktor? When Ron’s jealous. Lol.
5. “Herm-own-ninny” says Krum. (Bahahaha!)
6. Socks that screamed loudly when they became too smelly-Harry’s sweetest gift to Dobby.^^
7. Dobby calling Ron “Wheezy!”
8. Super cute Pigwidgeon being called “Pig” (Bahaha!)

Grrr inducing moments/characters
1. Fleur Delacour, I am not very fond of ze way you act although I find ze way you talk fab.
2. Ron, you could really be an idiot sometimes. “Caught on, have you? Took you long enough.”
3. Draco, you foul creature! Don’t worry, Harry. I’ll make you a personal badge I’d wear all the time saying Harry Potter is the best. Rub the badge and it’ll change into “Harry Potter is the bestest!”
4. THAT RITA SKEETER!
5. He who must not be named is officially back! *shivers*
6. Harry, you could be a pain sometimes, you know? All the danger signs are there. Your dreams, your scar, your name out of the goblet. Why won’t you listen to Hermione?

Woah moments
1. Harry against the Horntail: Way to go, Harry!
2. The triwizard tournament of course
3. Basically all the tasks! Harry is awesome! 50 points to Gryffindor for answering the Sphinx’ question.

Hermione moments
1. Hermione, her big heart and brain for the SPEW, I mean S.P.E.W.
2. ”So basically, you’re going to take the best-looking girl who’ll have you, even if she’s completely horrible?”
3. Her relentless support to Harry.
4. Hermione and the Yule Ball.

" My love for this series knows no bounds. 5 glorious stars. Always. " said.

"I'm apparently the crankiest person on earth, because this was my least favorite Potter book yet. (AZKABAN being my favorite!) It's mostly because:

1. There is too much tournamenting for my taste.
2. I hate the house elves. :O
3. The word "quietly" is egregiously overused. It loses its effectiveness because it appears so often.
4. There are moments when Harry and Ron behave like stereotypical stupid boys (I know, I know, they're 14...doesn't mean I can't be annoyed with them.)

The book gets an extra star because the last 10 chapters were very good, though, and I loved:

1. that Hermione gets a makeover, but then matter-of-factly says it's too much trouble to straighten her hair every day.
2. the creepy thing in the blanket
3. Cedric! Poor brave boy. (view spoiler)" said.

"Like I have already mentioned in my review of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, it is definitely noticeable that Rowling's writing style has improved massively compared to the first two books in the series. The amount of suspense and foreshadowing was incorporated very well and made the reading experience so much fun. I found myself constantly holding my breath towards the end, there were so many twists and turns! I have actually seen the movie version before, but I forgot much of it, so I was extremely surprised at some of the reveals. The build up towards those situations was just perfect!

I loved that we got to see a bit more interaction between muggles and wizards in the beginning, as well as more scenes outside of Hogwarts. It was a nice change and helped bring a bit more realism to the story (it was nice to see that wizards and witches get excited over such a normal thing as a sport event, too!).

One of my favorite things in the book was the portrayal of friendship. Harry, Ron and Hermione were depicted as normal teenagers, who sometimes just happen to fight over the stupidest little things. I feel like that really brought their friendship forward, in a way.
I, in general, feel like there was a lot of progress and development in the book. I haven't read the following books yet, so I obviously can't say how much of what happened in this one will play a part later, but I still feel like I learned so many new things about the world this story takes place in and about the characters in it. And oh man, how much I just love those characters...

"Reread in December 2017 for #HarryXmasToYou

Forever sad about Winky not being in the movie and Rita Skeeter’s whole story not making it in either, because she’s so awful but JUSTICE IS SERVED

Reread in December 2015 for #HarryXmasToYou

Seriously so many things I forgot because it's so different from book to movie! It's so good still though. I loved Dobby in this book.

Reread in December 2014 for #HarryXmasToYou

Again, so great. Lots of things I forgot! Like Ludo Bagman as a character, the Weasley's coming to be Harry's family for the third task, and just how things actually happen in the book since it varies in the movie. Things start to get dark after this book!
