Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2) | J.K. Rowling
In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the summer after Harrys first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer ever the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever before. But just as hes packing his bags to return to school, a creature named Dobby the house-elf announces that if Harry goes back to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And it turns out, Dobby is right. Harry and Ron miss the Hogwarts Express, so they fly to school in a blue Ford Anglia, crash landing in the notorious Whomping Willow. Soon other worries accumulate: the outrageously stuck-up new professor Gilderoy Lockhart; a ghost named Moaning Myrtle, who haunts the girls' bathroom; the strange behavior of Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley; rumors about the "Chamber of Secrets," a cavern buried deep below Hogwarts; and a magical diary owned by Tom Riddle, a Hogwarts student of long ago. Harry is also shocked to discover that he can speak Parseltongue, the language of snakes - a rare ability that Lord Voldemort also possessed - and that anti-Muggle prejudice exists in the Wizarding world, even affecting Harry's friend Hermione. But all of these seem like minor concerns when someone starts turning Hogwarts students to stone: an evildoer said to be the fearsome Heir of Salazar Slytherin, on of the founders of the school. Could it be Draco Malfoy, Harry's most poisonous rival? Could it be Hagrid whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one person everyone at Hogwarts most suspects: Harry Potter himself?

#auldlangreads a book about something you fear.

I'm terrified of spiders, y'all. The movie of this book made me pee myself. I've gotten better over the years but they're still 8 legs of NOPE for me.

January 18th...needing to recall what to do with a garden gnome and how to set a house elf free?😳Reread Harry!

I thought that I would reread this series in one big chunk of time, but it‘s not happening that way. This is still fun...reconnecting here and there. This is my least favorite book in the series, but my niece told me to approach it as a necessary step to get Hagrid‘s story...oh, the wise counsel of the very young at times!🥰

Sace I was going to do the same thing in November, but I only finished the first book and half of the second. Rereading all of them is still on my to do list though. 7d
WomanistBibliophile I‘m also currently rereading the series—and enjoying it so much! 6d

Re-reading this as an adult is both intriguing and entertaining! 😂🤭
Definitely has lost that feeling of emotion I once felt as a young teen. But has definitely not lost any of it's charm! A brilliant children's/young teen book.

I must have read this countless times between the ages of 11 & 15 but reading it for the first time since then I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed delving into this story once again.

‘Fascinating creatures, phoenixes. They can carry immensely heavy loads, their tears have healing powers and they make highly faithful pets.‘

Chrissyreadit I wish I had that cover 😍 2w
WomanistBibliophile @Chrissyreadit this is a library copy; I love the cover too, I think this series of illustrations are my favourite of all the editions I‘ve seen! 2w
Chrissyreadit Yes- I have been getting the illustrated version. I bought all of the books the night they were released here- except for Sorcerers Stone - and I love that set too- although I‘m missing Sorcerer Stone. 2w

JK Rowling truly realizes how to compose an extraordinary book, that is without a doubt! I cherished the plot and strife, despite the fact that it wasn't as serious as the others were. I was certainly stunned at the end...so epic and mind blowing! Bought it here: https://www.booktopia.com.au/harry-potter-and-the-chamber-of-secrets-j-k-rowling...

Date Started: November 14
Date Completed: November 19

I chose this because this was the second book in the Harry Potter series.

This book is where we get to see Harry grow as a character instead of just a scrawny boy into a more confident young man. This book toys with the fact that Voldemort has multiple ways to come back foreshadowing the future. They destroy the book that released a younger Voldemort and stopped everything in the chamber.

How did you choose this book: My friend recommended the Harry Potter series to me, and this was the next book in the series
Write a brief summary of the novel: As Harry is learning from the magic school, Hogwarts, he starts to hear voices in the wall, and messages are being written on the wall in blood about the heir to Slytherin. It says they will kill muggle borns.

Meh. I missed the original Hogwarts Train so maybe it‘s the fact that I‘m jumping on it late that leads me to my very unpopular opinion that the movies were better. Her endings always seem just rushed. I like the characters but maybe I‘m too old for this.

3rd book during 2nd week of HP winter magical readathon-prompt=read book in a fantasy world that exists in secret from muggles. Book doesn't need a summary. Of course book brings me so many good memories and I enjoyed to re-read it very much. But I don't know if I can say this is my favorite book. But I still love it. I don't know 3.9/4⭐️I will re-read HP until I die and after that too, if I become a Hogwarts ghost☺️👻

How did you chose this book: for christmas last year, my parents got me the complete set of harry potter books so I wanted to read them all.
write a summary: In the beginning, Dobby the house elf magically appears in Harry's home to warm Harry about hogwarts. Harry potter of course is mad that Dobby was doing this so he went anyways. Harry then is then caught in darkness

I don't know if this is common as I've only owned the one edition of this book from the early 2000s - but this is reproduced in the back and it is just the best 😁❤️❤️

Trying to get the bulk of my reading done today for the readathon. Good start so far.
I've got a lot of "well that's convenient" issues with this book and some things I don't remember from my first couple of reads that don't quite make sense. Still so nostalgic and good!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I love this series. I enjoy getting to know the characters better throughout the books. Again, a lot more detailed than the films and a great read.
