50 Books Challenge 2011- # 34: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Author: J.K. Rowling
Story: Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the Quidditch World Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal—even by wizarding standards. And in his case, different can be deadly.

Comment: How great this is. Another Harry Potter I finished for my challenge and perhaps this is the most original one of the series. I think the plot is most appealing, because of the secret tournament. It really spoke to me anyway. Harry has to join the tournament because someone put his name in the goblet of fire, when he actually wasn't allowed to content. Together with three other participants he has to defeat dragons, strange water creatures and he has to find his way trough a mysterious and scary maze. This book really captivated me from beginning 'till end. And it got even more exciting when Lord Voldemort entered the story. J.K. Rowling described him so well and made him so creepy, that he gave me the chills every single time he spoke. This is just storytelling of a high order. Bravo!
