    Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (whitewavedarling)
    whitewavedarling: Santa Olivia is admittedly built for a more mature audience, but the themes, character types, and situations in the Harry Potter series and in Carey's work make me believe a reader who enjoys one will likely enjoy the other. Santa Olivia, though, is not a traditional fantasy, but more in the lines of speculative fiction, so that fantasy-only readers who enjoy Harry Potter for primarily the inclusion of magic may not enjoy Carey's work. I'm recommending it with this Harry Potter book in particular since, for me, this was the book when the series took a leap toward becoming more adult. Santa Olivia is also probably the beginning of a forthcoming series.… (more)

The first 2 books were good, the 3rd was very good. This one was great, rich and thrilling and funny and moving. Develops brilliantly on the themes and ideas of the first three and wraps up everything in a wonderfully enjoyable tale populated with vibrant, likeable (and hateable) characters ( )

This is one of those books that is even more terrific on re-read. I loved it the first time, and the second time, knowing what was coming, I could fully appreciate the craft that went into the plotting, the details and the cool foreshadowing. My favorite parts were of course the various tasks, the ball, and the sub-plot with Barty Crouch and the ministry. Weatherby! Percy, despite being a bit of a brat a times, is such a fun character to read about. I completely enjoyed this and look forward to rereading the next. ( )

The narrator was amazing, the story superb! ( )

I would give Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling a 4 star review because, I loved all the drama and especially loved the part Sirius played but for some reason I just didn't like the idea of this book it didn't really appeal to me. ( )

First time reading the HP series in English, and also the first time re-reading the series since I was a teenager, and I must say, I finally get it why so many people avoid YA books like the plague. This was not my favorite book even when I was a teenager though, and I'm really hoping Order of the Phoenix will live up to my memories.
I must make a note that it's kind of weird reading this in another language when I've known it almost by heart in Serbian. It's almost like reading a completely different book, and it made me realize how impressive, and somehow warmer? the Serbian translation is than the original. ( )

Tras otro abominable verano con los Dursley, Harry se dispone a iniciar el cuarto curso en Hogwarts, la famosa escuela de magia y hechicería. A sus catorce años, a Harry le gustaría ser un joven mago como los demás y dedicarse a aprender nuevos sortilegios, encontrarse con sus amigos Ron y Hermione y asistir con ellos a los Mundiales de quidditch. Sin embargo, al llegar al colegio le espera una gran sorpresa que lo obligará a enfrentarse a los desafíos más temibles de toda su vida. Si logra superarlos, habrá demostrado que ya no es un niño y que está preparado para vivir las nuevas y emocionantes experiencias que el futuro le depara.

Book description
Harry Potter is midway through his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.

And in his case, different can be deadly.
