Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets | J.K. Rowling
The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny.But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone - or something - starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself!

Book #2 Harry returns to Hogwarts but soon after things start happening. With the rumors that the Chamber of Secrets has been re-opened, he‘s fellow students start to suspect Harry might be the heir of Slytherin himself. But is he?

This was never one of my favorites of the series, but I've just finished reading it again with my HPST local group and definitely appreciated it more this time around.

First, these artistic covers are gorgeous!
I remember that I liked the 2nd book the least and often just skipped through it on rereads. This time, I read it from beginning to end and it‘s actually a lot better! We learn more about the Weasley‘s and Hogwarts, and it‘s quite scary too.

When I hear the word #phoenix I immediately think of Fawkes.?

"It's a shame you had to see him on a Burning Day," said Dumbledore, seating himself behind his desk. "He's really very handsome most of the time, wonderful red and gold plumage. Fascinating creatures, phoenixes. They can carry immensely heavy loads, their tears have healing powers, and they make highly faithful pets.

Bk14 of August & Bk3 of #LittensDressedInBlood is done! The second in the Potterverse, it‘s not my favourite book in the series but isn‘t my least favourite either. I‘m sure you all know the story by now so no need to recap. I may be 50 but the world of magic still has a special place in my heart regardless. Some part of me will always be waiting for my Hogwarts letter🧙🏻‍♀️ #BookspinBingo #PennyPerPage #Pageathon #PickYourPoison

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I've been reading my Hufflepuff editions throughout my most recent reread of this series and really like them. It's also been fun to read the British edition instead of the American one haha This makes me wonder - do they also change editions for Australia vs the UK? 3mo
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks no, Australia gets U.K versions mostly, unless it‘s an Australian author usually. I have all the house editions of each book except the last two so far, plus the illustrated editions & my original signature editions. Yeah, I‘m a bit obsessed! 3mo
MidnightBookGirl Gorgeous cover! I will always be a fan of these books! 3mo
TheAromaofBooks It's so fun to collect pretty books 😂 And you definitely have a knack for finding lovely editions of books. Your posts have definitely inspired me to seek out some specific covers of certain books - I have no regrets about getting those gorgeous Agatha Christie books, for instance!! 3mo
Lizpixie @TheAromaofBooks I‘ve come to the realisation that as much as I‘d love it, I just won‘t have the room to keep every book I‘ve ever read, even if I line my whole house with shelves! So now I try to just buy & keep the special editions and pretty or signed copies then pass on the rest for others to read and enjoy. It‘s going slowly but what else do I have to do?🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo

Nearly 6 months since my last post… again, 23 books behind my scheduled goal for the year, and I‘m just trying to keep going!

Lately I‘ve been using background noise/ASMR scenery videos from various YouTube accounts to help me maintain focus. This one seemed appropriate for the last 25 pages! 🐍⚡️🐍⚡️🐍

I really enjoyed reading this one, too. It‘s easily read and I especially like the descriptions of the characters, their relationships and their everyday life.
I started reading The Prisoner Of Azkaban right after finishing this one and I really hope this book contains more details that aren‘t in the movies.

Returning to a series that once meant so much brings out a lot of emotion- especially now, when my feelings about the author have been incredibly negative. I'm not quite sure how to re-engage and I find myself scrutinizing the text for anything reductive or harmful instead of losing myself in the story. Littens, how do you approach problematic faves? Is there any point in returning? Anyway, here goes Book 2; onward! #JulyTradition #TheBoyWhoLived

BookishMarginalia I agree. I still love Harry Potter, but I am over JKR and her anti-trans views. It‘s a shame, really, that she has doubled-down on her pseudoscience bs… in my mind, I have totally divorced the Harry Potter series from its author. It helps that the series is complete; I wouldn‘t be able to do that with an ongoing series, such as the Cormorant Striker mysteries. 5mo
Andrea313 @BookishMarginalia I hope to get to the space where I can divorce the work from it's creator! I'm hoping that's what happens on this re-read: that somehow I can recapture some spark of excitement, nostalgia, anything! I seem able to look beyond the creators in some areas (Midnight in Paris is one of my favorite movies though I loathe Woody Allen) but have struggled to get there with JKR. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts! 5mo
janeycanuck You might consider checking out the Witch, Please podcast - specifically, this second time through the series. I have very similar feelings to you and I‘m really enjoying their highly critical lens and analysis. 5mo
janeycanuck @BookishMarginalia Same. No new JK for me but I think HP has really been taken over by the fandom and that makes it much easier to separate her out. 5mo
Andrea313 @janeycanuck Thanks for that tip! I will absolutely tune in and take a listen. 5mo

My friend gave me 4 out of 7 of the original British Harry Potter books for my birthday. I‘m very excited to have them! She couldn‘t find a whole set, but we can keep looking. She knew I wanted a British set but didn‘t know I‘ve been collecting the 20th anniversary ones (british). Love these!

Laughterhp How awesome!! I‘ve always wanted to collect a British set but could never figure out how to! 5mo
Scochrane26 I‘m not sure where she got these, will ask. You can get some from amazon U.K. I‘ve been collecting the 20th anniversary ones from Bloomsbury—you can find them on amazon or Book Depository. You can choose house color, paperback or hardback. Each book has a slightly different design & can mix & match. @laughterhp (edited) 5mo

13 May-5 June 2021 (audiobook)
Trying to make our way through slowly with Beatrix - first Luke reads aloud, we listen to the audiobook and then watch the movie - so that when we get to the darker end of the series she is a little older and able to understand. But it is very difficult - we all get excited and find it difficult to go slowly. Chamber of Secrets has more depth upon re-reading - fascinating to speculate how much Rowling had pre-planned

Felt desperately sad today, and wanted a quick pick-me-up to get through the day. I remembered that this book has been missing from my collection for a while, and found the perfect excuse to finally get a copy of it. When I turned the pages, it felt like home. 🐍⚡

⭐️⭐️⭐️ - another good book to kick start the Potter world. Enjoyed this more than philosophers stone, but J.K seemed to drag out the beginning of the book and then only left 50 pages for all the good stuff at the end?! I‘d potentially say the film was better than the book tbh...controversial I know!

4⭐️ Not my favourite book in the series but considering there was still a bit of world building included in the series, it‘s a pretty solid sequel to Philosophers Stone. Looking forward to Quidditch Through the Ages for #potteraday. #bookreview #bookstagram #harrypotter #fantasy #2021 #fiction #bookspinbingo

I quote enjoyed rereading this one, although I will admit that sometimes it was a challenge to restrain myself to a chapter a day!! But I think the slower pace helped me to soak in some extra details, so it all worked out.
