2007: 106. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“The village of Little Hangleton still called it “the Riddle House,” even though it had been many years since the Riddle family had lived there.”

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J.K. Rowling

Oh, you guys, I had so much fun re-reading the Harry Potter books! Even knowing how it ends (NOT THAT I AM GOING TO SAY HOW, HERE), I think back on them with such fun that I am thinking about re-reading them again, soon.  Well, at least Book 7.  

Anyway, Book 4 is the first of the huge ones, 734 pages total, and its the first one with the stirrings of romance plot, which, as a canonical shipper from way back, I do so adore.  I loooove when Ron gets jealous about Hermione going to the Yule Ball with Krum!*   This is also the last happy book, I think, before it all gets so dark with Umbridge, and Sirius’ death and all that (even though Cedric dies, it doesn’t really hit me like Sirius), so it’s fun to see the kids just reveling in the Hogwartty-ness of it all.  Plus, the Mad-Eye/Barty Crouch story is pretty clever (more so since - yum - David Tennant plays young Barty in the movie).  Oooh, I do like that Harry Potter!

* Though I am not so fond of Cho (I am a Ginny girl myself).

Recommended for:  Harry fans!!  Also, Doctor Who fans who want to fully understand Tennant’s entire oeuvre.
