Thoughts while rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

So through my re-reading of Harry Potter, I thought it would be a good idea to write blog posts of my thoughts while re-reading them. Last month, I posted about re-reading Philosopher's Stone so this month is Chamber of Secrets so let's get started...

1. The Dursleys are back meaner than ever...
2. Poor Hedwig
3. I like sassy Harry.
4. So mischievous Dobby...
5. How do the Dursleys ever accept Harry after he ran away?
6. Seriously Harry is so naive when it comes to Ginny.
7. I would be Harry if I ever went to the Burrow.
8. Harry can't use floo powder. (Why did I even write this, of course, he can't)
9. Lockhart, what are we going to do with you?
10. Why do all the defence of the Dark Arts teachers get destroyed?
11. Why do you feel the need to take a flying car? Like seriously.
12. I still don't know how no one expected it.
13. Snape- sarcastic really?
14. OK, I take that back.
15. So everyone is congratulating them but they did something incredibly stupid.
16. "With the Hufflepuffs" thanks we have been dumbed down to objects.
17. Lockhart needs to be slapped
18. Seriously he needs a slap.
19. Why would Harry want to take the spotlight for being so stupid?
20. Professor Sprout is such a Hufflepuff.
21. Mandrakes are just weird.
22. I feel like the Harry Potter Society Quiz is like Lockhart's pop quiz. Hard I think.
23. Ron knows. Ron knows.
24. Lockhart, you need to stop lying.
25. Quidditch is really quite confusing.
26. Mudbloods is a horrible word it does link to the power of names throughout the series.
27. Ron cares about Hermione.
28. Ron is right about Neville. Does it matter being a pureblood?
29. Think it is really annoying that Hermione's cleverness goes out the window just because she likes Lockhart. *signs*
30. I mean Ron and Harry practically know...
31. Also, it is for plot purposes that they have to make a poly juice potion that takes a month.
32. Percy, you literally took house points away from your own house.
33.Hermione breaking the rules. Never....
34.They literally blame Malfoy for everything.
35.No. Lockhart. No. 
36. I like the way Harry treats Dobby. 
37. Professor Sprout wanted to make scarves and socks for mandrakes. Cute.
38. Why keep it a secret Harry?
39. The plan obviously can't go wrong?!
40. The Slytherin password is pureblood. Surprise!
41. Hermione has a cat tail. Interesting...
42. Moaning Myrtle is literally an emo teen. 
43. Hagrid. No!
44. Also what type of person just writes in a random diary they found down a toilet. How did it survive so long?
45. Lockhart. Lockhart. Lockhart.
46. He literally just told Harry he was a Horcrux.

So that's it...

See you soon,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s
