‘Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. Just stick out your wand hand, step on board and we can take you anywhere you want to go.'”
When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it’s the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run – and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry’s tea leaves… But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss…
As you may or may not know the BF bought me the copies of the HP series in the original Bloomsbury covers as a new year present at the beginning of the year. I have slowly been making my way through them again and enjoying the stories all over again.
There isn’t much that I can say about JK that hasn’t already been said. We all know she is a fantastic writer. We all know that she can draw us into the wizarding world with ease so I will keep this one short and sweet.
It was a joy to see Harry and the gang grow in this book. The gang are becoming braver but the tasks ahead of them are becoming scarier with equal measure.
Buckbeak wormed his way into my heart as did Padfoot. I enjoyed seeing Harry’s father at school and learning more about him and his friends too.
Quite simply, I loved being back at Hogwarts and I loved being back in Harry’s world. For me nothing beats being back there and I can’t wait to dive in again with The Goblet of Fire in the new year.
