I've also taken all this wallowing time to make a ranking of my favorite Harry Potter books, because these things are important. It goes as follows:
- Prisoner of Azkaban
- Order of the Phoenix
- Goblet of Fire
- Half-Blood Prince (it made quite the jump!)
- Deathly Hallows
- Sorcerer's Stone
- Chamber of Secrets
My little brother just saw this and said, "So, Chamber of Secrets is your least favorite?" and technically yes, but actually no because Harry Potter is my favorite and they're all great, and I don't know why I decided to subject myself to a re-read in the first place, what was I thinking, maybe one day I won't be feeling so lost and forlorn without a Harry Potter book to read. Maybe I'll go read a grown-up book. Maybe I should read the Cormoran Strike books again...
J.K. Rowling, master of of my soul.
