    Don't mind me, just crying my eyes out. This was WAY better than I remember it being, and I remember it being pretty darn good. J.K. Rowling is a writing goddess and I can't believe how much foresight and planning went into this series. She already hints at the horcruxes and many other things in this book that don't show up until much later. Definitely one of my favorites in the series (but I say that about all of them)!

    (A) 86% | ExtraordinaryNotes: After a steady build, the series hits its stride. Deep and layered, it goes down smooth, never seeming overly complex.

    This was the beginning of my addiction to POTter. I had previously experimented with and enjoyed POTter on 3 different occasions, but could easily have walked away and never touched the stuff again. Then, under some pressure from some POTterHEAD peers of mine, I tried the newest blend called the Goblet...and everything changed. As the warm, easy, potato chip prose crossed my blood-brain barrier, euphoria ensued. My inner child was smitten. I...wa...

    Re-Read in December 2014 for Harry Christmas To You SO I HAVE A FEW NOTES ON THIS ONE:-at the beginning, Voldemort says to Wormtail, "I will allow you to perform an essential task for me, one that many of my followers would give their right hands to perform..." OMG J.K. ROWLING FORESHADOWS EVERYTHINGGGG-when the Weasley men come to Privet Drive through the Dursleys' fireplace is just.... priceless. Yet ANOTHER scene that I wish had made it into t...

    English (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) / Italiano«The villagers of Little Hangleton still called it “the Riddle House”, even though it had been many years since the Riddle family had lived there»Maybe this time I was out of line with the bedtime reading to my daughter, not so much for the size of the book, but for its darker content compared to the previous ones. Towards the end of this fourth book in the Harry Potter series, my litt...

    “Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”There are so many chapters and characters and details that make this book special. Here are some of my favourites:1. S.P.E.W.2. Hermione in every scene ever3. The house elves and the kitchen scenes (I'm honestly so in love with the kitchens. Every time they tickle the pear in the portrait I get all excited)4. Durmstrang and Beauxbatons5. T...

    Reread done for #AdamRereadsHP! GOBLET OF FIRE is definitely work and I could've done for a lot of cutting. One of the things I admire most about this series is the way J.K. Rowling can speed through a year in under 300 pages. And GOBLET is twice that length and it didn't always feel justified. I shouldn't complain because more time in this world is MORE TIME IN THIS WORLD, and it's all very realized, but the pacing still felt off. (I really, rea...

    Best one so far! "Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to the boy who was good, was kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory."

    4.5 stars I really don't think I need to tell y'all that I loved this because I've been raving about this series since the moment I started it back in January but for the sake of clarity - I love this. I believe everyone (even people that have no attachment to it at all) has a Harry Potter story under their belt. Whether it be the story of their first time reading it or the time they convinced everyone in their family to dress up as the Weasley'...

    I remember the first time I read this……I’d just started a real crappy job that I came to hate. I’d dropped out of university after my first year because my degree in psychology was a terrible choice, I seemed to be making more enemies than friends through life, but none of that mattered because I was reading a great series of books. I had something to look forward to every day when I really needed it. The point is books are escapism and f...

    Reread in December 2017 for #HarryXmasToYouForever 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 SERVEDReread in December 2015 for #HarryXmasToYouSeriously so many things I forgot because it's so different from book to movie!

    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...

    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. :O3. 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 ...

    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...

    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.

    Ummm.... it's Harry Potter? I'm incapable of a decent review or anything new to say. My rambling thoughts as I finish this:- Sooo much about Voldemort's planning makes more sense now. Movie's skipped a lot.-Speaking of Dobby is my favorite and I'll forever be mad he was written out of the movie - Barry Crouch Jr is still attractive, but I think it's only because David Tennant played him in the movie...-I'm still not over Cedric. So sweet. So kind...

(in 3rd place)I think my first long waiting in HP was after reading this one, which was Hard after what happened in the end. probably my first cliffhanger. & first book Hangover.

    Second Time Read Review To be honest, it was pretty hard for me to decide how many stars I would give to the book. On one hand, I liked the book, but I didn't love it, but on the other hand I felt like I couldn't give it less that 5 stars because I wouldn't be the kind of woman I am today without this series. This series changed me and when I look back at the old version of me, I feel I don't really recognize that girl anymore. So yeah it was pre...
