“You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part tale of Harry Potter’s 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 involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn’t happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he’s not normal — even by wizarding standards.
And in this case, different can be deadly.[Goodreads]
This was by far my favorite one so far! I love the elements of the tri-wizard tournament and the other schools that you learn about throughout the book. I really wish we learned more about both Durmstang and Beauxbatons schools and characters. There is so much mystery still involved with their storylines and it was elements of the book I really enjoyed! This book was just packed full of excitement, adventure, trouble, character growth and lets not forget dragons! Since this is the first time reading it and I have seen the movie several times, since it is my favorite one, there were some surprising shocks and information that cannot be found in the movie. I really wish the movie would have incorporated more about the house elves because I just love Dobby and thought the sections of the books about him and the other house elves were so entertaining! Overall I truly enjoyed this books (no surprise there) and cannot wait to continue on with the series, although I will be taking a bit of a break because I want to drag it out as long as possible!
