Happy Friday my Bookish friends,
This week Friday reads is one of my favorite books, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he’s not normal – even by wizarding standards.
And in his case, different can be deadly. (Goodreads)
I have read this book so many times. I think it is my favorite one in this series. I remember that when this series first came out, I used to go to the library and before reading this first three books of the series I would start with this one because it was the largest one at the time, and it made me feel studious to read such a large book.
Fast- forward years later, I consider Harry Potter to be my comfort blanket. It always brings me comfort to go back to Hogwarts and reconnect with the characters. It makes the troubles I seem to be having in my personal life seem so small and meaningless.
Also, this is my read for Harry X-mas, which I participate in every year. Its a read-a-thon hosted on twitter, which takes place throughout the month of December. Winter, isn’t winter without hot chocolate and a few chapters of Harry Potter.
What book brings you comfort?
With Warm Cups of Tea, and Just a Few More Chapters!
