PBN 30-day Book Challenge Day 1: Favorite Book in a Series

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has always been my favorite book since I was a child. To be fair, the series is one of my favorites but this book, in particular, takes the cake for me. You’d think by now, I’d have a review of it in my blog but I refuse to write a comprehensive one. Who wants to spoil their own childhood memories?

There are so many things I like about it. I get to witness Gryffindor win the Quidditch Cup after two years of mishaps. Harry gets a new broom. Best of all, Sirius Black enters the scene. I also like the fact that I get to understand James Potter more. For a son to hero-worship a father he never met is one thing. Having Lupin, Sirius and Dumbledore attest to James Potter’s character makes Harry’s admiration for his father very reasonable.

To me, the best part is how the sequence with the Time-Turner plays out. In those moments I reread the entire Harry Potter series, I had thoughts of “Someone was bound to see Hermione attending those classes with the number of students in Hogwarts.” But entertaining that question meant ruining the experience of disappearing through the walls between platforms 9 and 10 at King’s Cross station (“From the hundreds of people at the train station, nobody saw people disappearing through the walls?”).
