Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire

I entered the Harry Potter series as a skeptic grownup. No way could it live up to the hype, I thought. There had been four books at the time, and once I started the first book, I did not look back. By the time the time I finished the Goblet of Fire, sixth months prior to the publication of #5, I was...It's hard to explain. I felt as though something was missing and also felt that I had just read some of the most timeless books in existence. I had delusions of grandeur, as though I knew something that others did not. Harry and Hermione et cetera will be with me forever.

The Goblet of Fire is intricately woven. It made me laugh and cry and personify. If you haven't ever read these books, I'm sorry. Go read 'em now.
