So, it’s been a while since I finished this reread. Unfortunately, I don’t remember all of my thoughts that I had.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is actually my favorite Harry Potter book. It always has been and I don’t necessarily know why. This book is where the actual plot starts picking up and it feels like real stuff is happening. And, of course, this book causes me to feel so many emotions for the first time in this series. I get so angry throughout this book. And then I get super sad about why I’m angry.
This entire book makes me angry because of Sirius Black’s character. I love Sirius Black. I have loved him from the first time I read the book and I still love him. But every time I read this book, I get so so angry because I know what happens to him. It makes me feel so many things. Everything that happens to him is so unfair. He was so close to freedom, after spending twelve years in prison. It’s just so unfair. He deserved better. Harry and Sirius could’ve been living together and it would have been a huge upgrade from living with the Dursleys. And people could have gotten a happy ending for now. But, no! Nobody gets to be happy in this world.
I just get so emotional about this.
Moving on, I also forgot that we’re introduced to so many characters in this book. I forgot that Cedric Diggory (who also makes me super duper sad) and Cho Chang are both introduced in this one. It was weird because I haven’t read this book in years and I was just going off my knowledge from the movies. So, that was a surprise.
Alright. These were the only thoughts that I had that I remembered. Which Harry Potter book is your favorite? Which character causes you to feel all the emotions?? I need to know.
