I am absolutely loving my Harry Potter reread! I haven’t read the books since I was a kid so reading them as an adult is making me see a whole lot more than I did previously!

The story once again starts out with Harry being mistreated at the Dursley’s (abused really – the level of abuse still shocks me), then Harry receives an unwelcome visitor. Things so pretty downhill for him until he is rescued by the Ron, Fred & George in a flying car. I really love the Weasley’s, all of them, they are such loving people and Mr & Mrs Weasley have raised all of their kids so well!  As usual Harry can’t keep his nose out of the mysterious happenings at Hogwarts and a great adventure ensues. We get to meet a few more magical creatures, which are amazing. Rowling’s imagination for creatures is fantastic! There is good character growth in all of the main characters while remaining the characters we love so much.

I love that the books are more “kid friendly” than the movies are, there is also much less suspense in the action scenes which I appreciate (drawn out action scenes get boring and make me anxious lol). I am very excited to carry on with the rest of the series!

Synopsis:

The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone — or something — starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects . . . Harry Potter himself?
