Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

This is the second book of the series Harry Potter. In this one we meet one of my favorite characters (besides Fred and George) Dobby. Oh how I do love that little house elf. Dobby has come to warn “Harry Potter must not go back to Hogwarts this year.” Dobby knows something terrible is about to happen this year but he won’t tell Harry what or who is doing it.

The Dursleys are yet again treating Harry poorly. They are a little frighten of him due to him being able to do magic. After the incident with Dobby they don’t let him leave his room and they put bars on his window. Ron, George, and Fred come to the rescue in their dad’s flying car. They bring him back to the Burrows where they live. The boys get in trouble with Mrs. Weasley. Well not Harry but the others do.

Ginny, Weasley’s youngest, is going to Hogwarts for her first year. She as well as the other Weasleys gets sorted into Gryffindor. Ginny isn’t the only new one to the school. Due to Professor Quirrell not being able to “return” Gilderoy Lockhart will be the new defense against the dark arts teacher. (Which Snape did not get again. *Snicker*) Gilderoy Lockhart has the biggest ego ever. He is always comparing Harry to him. (Harry is actually good at magic though) Poor Harry. I think Lockhart is as use full as a dog in space.

Harry, Ron and Hermione come across a message. Soon everyone is in the hall from dinner being over. THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS HAS BEEN OPEN, ENEMIES OF THE HEIR BEWARE!

 

Harry and Ron go on deep into the forest and deep under the school to unlock what is in the Chamber. Most think Harry is the heir of Slytherin. Fifty years before this the chamber was opened and a muggle born had died. The blame was pointed on Hagrid. Even though there was no proof but Tom Riddle’s word Hargid’s wand got broken and he is no longer allowed to do magic unless emergency. Who really opened the chamber of secrets fifty years ago? Who has opened them now? Read and find out.

Another wonderful book by J.K. Rowling.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

For many who know me will tell you that I am a huge Harry Potter fan!! My grandmother on my father’s side had mentioned she had a new book she was reading. That is when I discovered the world Jo Rowling had written. I have read all the books and seen all the movies. I also have a pottermore account. I am rereading the Harry Potter series again to write reviews of it.

Harry Potter born July 31st was a year old when he was left on the door step of his aunt and uncle Dursleys’ house. His parents, Lily and James, were killed by Lord Voldemort. Harry is tormented by the Dursleys until his eleventh birthday when he finds out that he is a wizard.

Harry has been accepted to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This awesome journey begins. Harry meets Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger on the Hogwarts Express.

 

Harry gets sorted into Gryfinndor along with Ron and Hermione. All of Ron’s family have been in Gryfinndor. He has his older brother Percy who was a prefect for Gryfinndor and then his other older brothers who are twins, Fred and George, they are on the Gryfinndor Quiddich team. (Which Harry becomes the youngest seeker on the team in 100 years)

Harry, Ron and Hermione stumble across a floor they shouldn’t be on. It sends them on a chase to see what a certain three-headed dog is guarding and what Professor Snape is up too.

This book series is on of my favorites and forever will be one of my favorites. Every time I read a book or watch a movie of this series it feels like I have my grandmother with me again.
