Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling

Did you see this coming?

The sequel to last week’s book, of course.

Not the fact that I’m posting this review on a fictional Friday. Lol.

Speaking of last week, I just want to add that while there’s a lot of controversy against reading Harry Potter. And while yes, why it does have some dark elements….

There’s nothing evil, satanic, or demonic in Harry Potter and The Sorceror’s Stone. Contrary to what I’d been told, my entire life. Believe me, I was searching throughout the story with a skeptical mind. And I’ll continue to do so throughout the entire series.

So unless, of course, you believe all magic is evil- this first book is deemed SAFE TO READ. In which case, I’m guessing you’re against the Wizard of Oz. And the Chronicles of Narnia. And Lord of the Rings. And pretty much any Disney princess movie- ever.

Genre: YA Fantasy (no, this is not a children’s book.)

Swearing: 1 d***

Synopsis: The boy who lived and his first year at the school everyone wants to go to, but can’t because it’s fictional. Guess we’re going to Universal.

Mini Book Review: Whimsical, a little dark, but full of the wonder that is this wizarding world- it’s one of the more captivating stories I’ve read recently.

Inappropriate content: There’s nothing in here. Unless you are against magic or something.

Rating: πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šof 8 (Eight points=Creative story idea, dynamic for it’s genre, easy to read, enjoyable, strong lead characters, good villain, believable and shipable romance, overall execution)

****would have been an eight, but there was no romance in this first installment. Unless you want to count the bromancing.

Read it. Don’t read it. These are just the facts. Whatever.

Also, because it’s Fictional Fridays… here’s a short story for you. (I think it’s my best work.)

Once upon a time there was a person. They ate Chinese. They went to bed. The end.
