(Book #21 for 2007, Book #2 for M&N's Summer 7 Challenge)
Harry is in his second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Little does he know that this year will be just as eventful as the last…
‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’More adventures for Harry- flying cars, Polyjuice Potion, house elves, giant spiders, haunted toilets... It’s perhaps not as memorable as the first book but a fun sequel all the same.
Continuing with my reread extravaganza, yesterday I got a chance to watch the movie. Kenneth Branagh as Professor Lockhart is great! Lots of little changes and things left out though, and some scenes that seemed to be exaggerated for cinematic effect. So while it was fun I definitely preferred the book this time around. On to the next and I’m already halfway through book 3.
My Rating: 3.5/5
‘But why’s she got to go to the library?’
‘Because that’s what Hermione does,’ said Ron, shrugging.
‘When in doubt, go to the library.’
