Welcome to my feature, Pastime Pleasures all about books I have loved and adored and were published over five years. Today is the turn of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J K Rowling.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has to be my favourite Harry Potter out of the whole series. It is the pivotal point in the Harry Potters and a complete game changer. Goblet of Fire is the starting point for Harry and co to grow up. Before Harry’s adventures were limited to in-school activities. And Voldermort is still a shadow of himself. And it is now all going to change. Because now that he is back.
There is a lot of Quidditch, adventure and thrills. As Harry races to the end of the Triwizard cup and starts to realise that he is a teenager.
The fact that Harry and co are growing up lead to some hilarious moments as hormones take the better of them. And we get to learn about other schools. I loved that we finally get to know so much more about the wizarding world rather than just Hogwarts, Diagon Alley and Harry’s life in the summer holidays.
