Day Four: Favorite book of your favorite series
I already covered Poison Study (from my second favorite series) so I’m going to go ahead and talk about Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, my all-time favorite book from any series. I’ve read it more times than I can count on one hand, and I’ve lost track. It would almost be pitiful, except the book came out in 2000—I remember waiting in line at Barnes & Noble for the midnight release! I was 9. I was pretty positive my letter would come in the mail that September, because it was a miracle my mom let me out that late…an owl wouldn’t be too far of a stretch (I was extremely disappointed).
I love the Goblet of Fire because of the Triwizard Tournament. The competition, the challenges, the Cho Chang crush (nevermind the incredibly awkward kissing scene from the fifth movie), and all of the wonderful bits in between. I remember being shocked when Cedric was killed, getting irritated that I couldn’t figure out the Golden Egg mystery on my own, and hoping that Harry didn’t lose a limb to a dragon.
It’s been a few years since I’ve read it and I think I’m due!
I’m going to save my favorite HP book for a later day, and discuss my favorite book from my second favorite series. My favorite book from the Under the Never Sky series is book two – Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi. So much happens between book one and two, and Aria is in a completely different place and mind set now. I loved getting to know everyone in the Tides through her and also how her relationship with Perry changes as she gets to know herself more and more.
