(3)Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

Okay, those of you who have been telling me for the better part of a decade that I need to read Harry Potter -- well I give you permission to say "I told you so."   

The Goblet of Fire starts with the Quidditch World Cup and you get to see Harry start to become more comfortable in the world of wizarding.  He dreams of becoming a star like those who participated in the World Cup.  He doesn't realize that his chance to be a star is closer than he thinks.  Harry and the rest of Hogwarts are shocked when his name is pulled from the Goblet of Fire and he becomes a contestant in the Triwizard Tournament.  The rest of the book was full of exciting and shocking events, culminating in another edge-of-your-seat conclusion.

I think that Goblet of Fire is my favorite book so far.  That one "thing" at the end of the third event.  Well, it had me gasping out loud in the middle of the grocery store.  It was then that I realized how invested I was in this story.   Of course, everything worked out in the end, but not before Hogwarts lost an important member. 

Bottom Line - Harry Potter is awesome. His friends can be annoying at times, but they always come through when they need him the most.



Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
