Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets | 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?

My husband and I finished the second Harry Potter book last night. Per hubby: "Wow! That was fun! We're starting the 3rd one tomorrow, right?" I may have created a fan. ?

TheAromaofBooks I started reading these when I think four or five of them had been published. I was housesitting for a friend and had the week off. She lived near the Columbus Metropolitan Library, which is quite large, and I started my week by visiting there, and picked up the first book on a whim to see what all the fuss was about. I ended up going to the library every day to get the next book! 😂 I was completely hooked. 1mo

Hi Litsy Fam I wanted to ask your opinion on reading. My boyfriend and I have been debating on whether Audiobooks are still considered reading. He believes listing to audiobooks is not considered a form of reading because you are not the pages if a book. Would you mind sharing your opinions on this?

Much appreciated 😌

DGRachel Audiobooks are a form of reading - it‘s another way to absorb a story and one that opens books up to people who are visually impaired or may have other challenges that make reading a physical book impossible. 3mo
julesG I agree with what @DGRachel wrote. It's definitely reading. 3mo
Deblovestoread Definitely reading! 3mo
Quirkybookworm Put it this way, if you‘re reading a book out loud to kids, what do you call that? 3mo
Paristhesavvyreader Thank you everyone for all of the responses and proving my point 😌 3mo

Off to book 2 🦉

Funny fact I received my first Harry Potter book when I was 8 as a gift from my uncle. He gifted me with “The Chamber of Secrets”. This book has a special place in my heart because it opened me up to the magical world of Hogwarts 💙

Harry is a young wizard going for his second year at Hogwarts School of Wizardry. His school year starts with a near death incident when Harry and Ron try to fly an invisible car to Hogwarts. After a little while, the whole school comes to the realization that the chamber of secrets has been opened, an ancient chamber found deep in the school. Harry then has to fight for his life against Voldemort and his evil serpent .

Javin.VandenDungen You would like this book if you like fantasy books and are really looking for any book to binge read.
A theme in this book is teamwork. Ron, Hermione and Harry all stick close together throughout the whole book, and only in this way were they able to accomplish they‘re ultimate goal.

An enjoyable morning spent coloring with new art supplies while I read the first 2 chapters of Chamber of Secrets to the kids. Exactly what we needed to recover from the chaos of multiple Christmas celebrations over the last few days!

Been reading so slowly these past few months, but I just had to share these really cute (and also stunning) magnetic bookmarks I got recently. 😍🐍✨

I've always wanted the Hogwarts textbooks as bookmarks, and these appeared on my IG feed one day. 👀

One other thing I love seeing in this community is other readers' bookmarks. 😃

Speculative fiction. This is the second book in the Harry Potter series. It is about Harry's second year at Hogwarts and it is just as exciting as the first. Again the book really brings you into the world that has been created and you feel like you yourself are a part of the story.

This book further exemplifies JK Rowling‘s world building abilities. Once again, even without illustrations the reader is able to imagine what the world looks like, sounds like, and feels like.

The second book of seven in this series continues the excellence of the first. While this book has a slightly darker feel to it, it is still a great book for children to read. The main characters themselves are still only children, so young readers feel connected.

The Harry Potter series was written by J.K. Rowling. I have never read a full one of these books; however, I have seen all of the movies. I really like the conversations and feeling that you get while reading/listening to these books. It makes you feel like you are right in the book.

Moving on to the next book. I remember reading this one as a kid by nightlight after I was supposed to be asleep and getting freaked out when he started hearing the voices. I don't remember why I thought it was so scary, but I was 8 so I guess it didn't take much to frighten me. Haha
Very enjoyable to reread. Again lots of foreshadowing hidden in plain sight. Recommend.

8-10-22: My 77th finished book of 2022! Book 2 of the series. It‘s year 2 for Harry, Ron and Hermione. When people become petrified, they hear of a legend called the Chamber of Secrets. Is it real and can they find it? With their usual rule breaking the trio slowly figure out what they are up against but it is up to Harry to save the day. We meet lots of new characters in this second book and revisit the originals as well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣7️⃣7️⃣
