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 Harry’s first year at Hogwarts has been his worst summer ever… the Dursleys more distant and horrible than ever before. But just as he’s 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?

Book vs. Movie thoughts
(~10 chapters in)
1. Gilderoy Lockhart in the book is just as annoying as he is in the movie. ??
2. It cannot be argued how heartless Argus Filch can be towards the students both in the movie and in the book. Remember how he gave detention to students for "breathing loudly" and "looking happy"? ?
3. The "Deathday party" would have been interesting to watch.
4. I wonder why Professor Binns was not included in the movie.

JenlovesJT47 I really wish Peeves had been in the movies also. But the first two movies are the best adaptations. 🤓 4d
VenmariPasinos @JenlovesJT47 I agree. Peeves would have been an interesting addition. The movie adaptations were already fine with the Weasley twins' mischief though. 😂 Looooooved all the movies. Each has its own charm, I guess. ❤ 2d
JenlovesJT47 True! The twins are my favorites! ❤️ 2d

I remember not liking this one as much as the first and third books but liked it much better listening to it with the kids on audiobook. Still a great series.

Onto the next one. It always amazing me that Harry came out of his childhood as well adjusted as he did. The Dursleys toed the line of child abuse constantly and all Harry got was a cheeky sense of humor. #nowreading #harrypotter #hp2

Audiobook 5/6 for #BFCr2

I‘m so enjoying this “reread” of HP. Jim Dale is such a fantastic narrator. Unfortunately, HP book 3 is still a 6 week wait (and I placed a hold on it back in mid-April). 😕

I‘m about to start a re-read of my VERY worn copy of The Chamber of Secrets. I wonder how many times and by how many people this book has been read. I first read it when I was on maternity leave with my now 19 year old and she eventually read it herself. I hope it doesn‘t fall apart as I read!

Another fantastic MF novel in the HP series by JK Rowling. NY Times Bestseller and 2nd book in the series, this would be a fantastic pick for LC. Harry Potter is back for his second year and thinks it will be a normal school year with friends. Not too soon into the new year do strange things start to happen when Harry is around. The chamber of secrets has been open by the heir of Slytherin and everyone thinks it Harry! Harry and his friends..

Kcompton2912 Go on a mission to find out who‘s doing this and clear his name! This link is a great discussion guide to use with the LC. http://hpread.scholastic.com/HP_Book2_Discussion_Guide.pdf The UDL principle 8.3, foster collaboration and community, as well as the EL strategy 10, teach think, pair, and share strategies in cooperative groups, can both be met with this book in a LC setting! #UCFLAE4313SU19 1mo

I‘ve got to go to the library!” And she sprinted away, up the stairs. “What does she understand?” said Harry...”Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head. “But why‘s she got to go to the library?” “Because that‘s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”

I haven‘t re-read Harry Potter in a long time, and I usually say the 2nd is my least favorite (or the 5th). But, I‘m excited to finally read the British versions. Had forgotten how many details in this book come into play in the 6th & 7th ones. I got this one in my house color—Hufflepuff. My Pygmy puff, Violet, from HP World is included in this pic.

4 1/2 ⭐️ While I loved the illustrations of the book, I just didn‘t like it as much this reread. Think it was largely due to the fact that I just read it about 6 weeks ago. This reread was for the Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast. Still a very good read. #2019 #harrypotter
