In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the characters have entered that age, like on Pete & Pete, where romances are likely to blossom and in the book they do. Harry did struggle with his crush on Cho Chang in The Order of the Phoenix and Hermione dated a foreign Quidditch player in The Goblet of Fire, but this is definitely the “love” book.
Otherwise known as Harry Potter and the Curse of the Sprained Shoulder, which is what this behemoth cost me lugging it around in my bag back and forth from work every day. Brutal.
At this point what else could I possibly say about The Goblet of Fire that probably hasn’t been already said before. This is the book where the series turns a darker edge with a turn that I probably should have seen as inevitable, but I tend to just dive into each volume without thinking about what I might find inside.
