Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)

Harry Potter's third year at Hogwarts is full of new dangers. A convicted murderer, Sirius Black, has broken out of Azkaban prison, and it seems he's after Harry. Now Hogwarts is being patrolled by the dementors, the Azkaban guards who are hunting Sirius. But Harry can't imagine that Sirius or, for that matter, the evil Lord Voldemort could be more frightening than the dementors themselves, who have the terrible power to fill anyone they come acr...

    re-read in February 2016Harry is getting his sass on. I love it. Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas to YouOH MAN. THIS BOOK IS SO MY FAVORITE.The phone conversation at the beginning between Ron and Uncle Vernon was PRICELESS. I wish so much that that scene had been in the movie.I was so into reading this book that I failed to take notes, so I don't have many specifics to add except that I love how Crookshanks was basically Sirius's secr...

    I'm beginning to wonder if there will ever be a Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher who is just a teacher.

    I last read this book when I was 14 years old, given that I'm almost 32 now, I have a whole new perspective on it. Despite the fact that I gave this book 5 stars previously, I have to admit that it didn't grow on me until this, my second read. Confession time: I didn't like Remus or Sirius.*Khanh ducks as rotten fruit and eggs are thrown her way*OK, OK, I'M SORRY! I've since changed my mind! Notice that I used the past tense.Obviously, there will...

    I have so much more love for this one re-reading it as an adult. Five stars of course.

    It's a rainy Sunday. It's colder than it should be this time of the year, so I'm drinking a delicious cup of coffee and I'm browsing my Goodreads shelves only to realise that I haven't written a Harry Potter review. Not a single one. So, I decided to start with the first Harry Potter book I ever read, the one that took me to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and made me believe that magic is something tangible. “I solemnly swear that...

    Re-read 1/19/19: Idk what happened this time around but I SOBBED for the last 50 pages of this????? My heart aches for all the things that could have happened and I just 😭😭😭Re-read 5/25/16: Perfection again. Re-reading this series is making me SO happy. Although this book is where things start getting really gloomy and it just breaks my heart to see bad things happening to lil Harry :c

    (A) 85% | ExtraordinaryNotes: Separating itself from its forebears, it’s a story of greater complexity, darker tones, and a vastly expanded mythology.

    Read for Popsugar's 2018 Reading Challenge: A Book Set in the Decade You Were BornTHIS WAS SO BEAUTIFUL. At first I was mad there weren't more illustrations, but I began to realize that every page was unique in its own way (mostly REALLY COOL background designs) and the chapter headers were all incredible. All in all, a super delightful read!

    Still five stars. Love this so much. Can't review. Couldn't even take notes. Watched the movie immediately after finishing. Need next book. Wish I lived in this world. Damn you, Rowling. Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest

    “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”When I finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban for the first time, it immediately became my next favourite book. J. K. Rowling outdid herself, and wrote something even bigger and better than before. And she'll keep doing it for another 4 books.There's just nothing to criticise about book 3. Compared to the other books there's not a sin...
  • Adam Silvera
    Loved it, duh. It's my favorite in the series and I'm not sure I got anything NEW out of this reread except some reminders on what a dick Snape is + how Crookshanks was MVP in getting the passwords to Sirius Black.
  • Chris
    Since pretty much everyone I know has read these books, I figure reviewing them is pretty pointless. But with the new book coming out in a couple of weeks, I have to go through them beginning to end. To make the reviews more entertaining, I will be doing them in a variety of unexpected formats. For this review, I will be writing as Crookshanks fan fiction.Crookshanks swished his tail back and forth as he crept up the stairs to the boys' bedrooms....

    Buddy Re-read with the Queens of Hogwarts on Instagram*********************I guess you can tell from my rating that this wasn't my all-time favorite HP installment, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. I remember thinking that the movie was about a 3/5 star rating for me when I first saw it, but now that I've experienced the novel version, I can see how the ending in the book is so much more detailed and excellent than how they chose to portray the...
  • Grace (BURTSBOOKS)
    I don't know what to say other than I love this book. I loved learning more about Harry's parents. I loved Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, and everyone else. I loved the storyline and how every single seemingly pointless detail somehow ended up meaning something to the bigger story and how I was left completely in shock. I loved the introduction of divination and I loved Sirius. I love love love this series. Superb storytelling. I AM IN LOVE...

    Of-course, this book was EPIC! =D Its Harry Potter now. It has to be epic! *Rolling eyes but smiling widely* xD
  • Sean Barrs the Bookdragon
    This is my favourite book in the Harry Potter series! It marks a distinct change in tone and a maturation of the writing. As the characters grew older, the challenges they faced became more dark and intense. The plot became murkier especially in regard to Sirius and his involvement (or lack thereof) in the murders of Potter’s parents. It all just got so much better. I think this is a large part of Rowling’s success. She could have fell into a...
  • Reynita Maharani ★ The Night Reader ★
    Second Read Review THIS BOOK. IT WAS SO FUCKING WONDERFUL AND I CRIED. I have several things to say about this book, but first of all, I'm going to say that I love the Marauders, except Peter Pettigrew because he's a fucking a coward and he made Lily and James died! I hate him so much and when Sirius voice broke after he told Harry what truly happened that he was not their Secret Keeper, but it was Peter and then he found out that Lily and James ...

    Okay, I will admit it here, publicly, for the very first time: I've got a mad crush on Remus Lupin.How could I not have fallen hard for a man who, by day, has the vibe of a young Pablo Neruda, and by night strips down naked and takes on werewolf form? I mean, can you imagine having sex with this man?Well, I have. Several times. And, as a woman who read the entire Harry Potter series as an adult, rather than a child, I could not get over my joy wh...
  • James Tivendale
    That was awesome. I really should have read this about ten years ago when all the cool kids did. I'm enjoying this series so much and it's great I have no idea what happens next. No spoilers, please! :) x
  • Val ⚓️ Shameless Non-Snowflake ⚓️
    Le sigh, so magical.So Buckbeak. So Hermione is a badass. FAVORITE moment in ever, people. But I digress. I've said it in both my reviews for the first and second HP books, but I'll say it again here...In fact, lemme just copy/paste what I said in review #1 to save us all some time (typing for me and possible link clicking for you):I have a confession to make. ***I have never read Harry Potter. Yes, yes, I know...this is akin to reader sacrilege....
  • Kayla Dawn
    This might be a very unpopular opinion, but I always disliked the 3rd movie the most and I feel like it's probably going to be the same for the books.I do love all the new characters that were introduced but I really despise this goddamn time turner shit. I hate it so so much.It doesn't make any sense! It's just full of goddamn plot holes. Plus: I'm not a big fan of quidditch and there was a lot of it in this one... Qudditch bores me a lot tbh.

    "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" One of the iconic quotes of the series.5 Golden stars99%For some reason, I never really liked Prisoner of Azkaban when I was younger, I thought it was a sidejob, I waited for you-know-who to appear somehow (I vaguely remember a little amount of waiting before the book published, so maybe that might be a reason too, a kind of mild disappointment), so I thought it was boring... but after 11/12th re-read in...
  • Mikee Andrea (ReadWithMikee)
    OKAY. This book was fantastic! I can't get over how everything just fell into place perfectly. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite of the series so far which is actually a surprise since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was my least favorite movie growing up.But reading and watching the movie truly is a different experience. Even though I've seen the movies repeatedly year after year, I was still on my toes while I was turning the pages of...
