Book: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Originally Published: July 8, 2000

By: J.K. Rowling

Teen wizard Harry Potter is back at Hogwarts for his fourth year and he’s in as much danger as ever before.

Two other wizarding schools – Durmstrang and Beauxbatons – join Hogwarts for the Triwizard Tournament. Though he is a minor, Harry’s name is pulled from the Goblet of Fire and he is obligated to compete.

While the tasks in the tournament help show off new spells and creatures, the majority of the book may have you wondering how it will play into the overall plot of the series. However, once you get into the final task, the continuation of the series is set into motion.

Harry and Ron fight for a while in the novel. The tensions between the characters can be off-putting, but it shows how they’re growing and changing.

Final say: The ending saves the book. ★★★★☆
