Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4)
J. K. Rowling, Mary GrandPre (Illustrator)

*NOW* I need to wait... I don't get first dibs on The newest book... This one IS amazing. So many issues and interesting themes weave together. Just like the lead in to WWII, this is the story of the gathering storm. I can't wait to read the next one, but I dread the dire things that are about to happen.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter #3)
J. K. Rowling, Mary GrandPre (Illustrator)

Getting ready for the big NUMBER FIVE! I *think* this is my favorite - the mystery and the clues, the substory of Hermione's studies, and Buckbeak's fate... The first time I read this I had a really excellent theory of what was going on - wrong, but great fun. Rowling really plays fair with her clues and foreshadowing, yet still leads you on a merry chase.

NOW my big mystery is where is book four!!! A book that size should NOT be easy to hide, but we can't find it!!! And I want to re-read it before reading the fifth book..... Oh well.....
