Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It’s assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney’s ghoulish predictions seriously?

5 out of 5 stars

Plot:

Again, I may be a little biased towards the Harry Potter books because they’re my all time favorite series, but I absolutely loved this book. I want to go to at at Hogwarts so bad, oh my goodness. My favorite part of this book was when Harry obtained the Marauder’s Map because it led to so much happening later on. I always love when Harry gets out of the Dursley’s house and goes to Ron’s house. Ron’s house is one of my favorite venues in the whole series. I read this book for the first time about 5 years ago and I didn’t realize how much I’d forgotten.That is one of the best things about rereading a book, you rediscover things that you’d forgotten and you get to enjoy the story all over again. Harry Potter is one series that, if I could, I would unread so I could experience it for the first time all over again.

Characters:

Harry, Ron, and Hermione, also known as the Golden Trio, are my favorite characters from any book. harry is strong-willed and definitely doesn’t ever give up. Ron has very strong opinions about everything, and is not afraid to express that, and Hermione is smart and witty, and a very loyal best friend. Ron is my favorite from this wizarding threesome, but in my opinion, nobody will ever compete with Dumbledore. Dumbledore is my all time favorite character from this whole series and he always forgives and sees the best in everyone.

Who Would I Be?:

From this book I would be Ron because I love how excited he gets when Harry gets his Firebolt, and I love that he doesn’t give in to anyone. It was funny, and a little irritating, when Ron was angry with Hermione about Scabbers and Crookshanks, but other that their dispute about that, I love Ron. It’s definitely irrtating becaause Hermione and Ron would be the perfect couple, but neither of them want to admit to it yet. :)

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girl’s bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble beings, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects…Harry Potter himself.

5 out of 5 stars

Plot:

The wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter is just that, wonderful. J. K. Rowling  put so much thought into these books and I am so glad I’ve gotten to read them. The Chamber of Secrets is my favorite of the Harry Potter books I’ve read and is definitely my favorite movie. I love everything about this whole series and if you have not read these books, you haven’t discovered that ordinary lives can become extraordinary.

Characters:

These are my favorite characters out of anyone from any book. You get to grow with them and they are all so loveable. I’d forgotten how heartwarming the characters are. Harry is a great, brave main character. Ron is a silly side-kick best friend, and Hermione is the glue that keeps them together. Without Hermione, they wouldn’t have figured out half of the things they needed to.

Who Would I Be?:

I would probably still want to be Hermione. I love Hermione and I would want my best friends to be Harry and Ron. Even though Hermione gets petrified by the Basilisk, I would still want to be her because she loves reading and she is so smart. She is kind of innocent in a way because she worries about small things, like tests and studying, more than big things that are happening sometimes. I love how vulnerable she is.
