Harry Potter Moment of the Week - Least Favourite Book

Thursday means Harry Potter, and Harry Potter, in my world, means happiness. I have been craving going on Pottermore for ages now and since I've gone back home for my birthday tomorrow I don't have to be at work so I'm going to spend the day pottering around there! (See what I did?!). Anyways, Harry Potter Moment of the Week is hosted by Leah over at Uncorked Thoughts and this week's question is hard:

Least Favourite Book

I actually genuinely don't know. I haven't read the books in so long that all I have to go by are the movies. What I do remember is that every time a book came out I was incredibly excited and I loved it, no matter what. Every new story about Harry Potter was all I wanted and more so I don't think I ever read one that was disappointing, so I won't be able to pick one like that. Hhmm, plot-wise I always felt Goblet of Fire was my least favourite because it distracted so much from Harry's personal problems but then I really enjoyed how their personal relationships grew in that book because at that point it definitely changed from school friends to intense friendships, if you know what I mean. AAAGGH, I don't know what to pick. So here's a Buzzfeed post about '26 Times Tumblr Had Serious Questions about Harry Potter' and it's hilarious so definitely check it out. I was laughing out loud about halfway through!

Do you have a least-favourite book?


  1. A lot of people say GoF is the worst because it has too many things, but I loved it so much, because it has so many things! The world cup, the tournament, the big bad Voldy at the end that changes the course of the last 3 books... I found it really amazing :D My 2nd favorite after DH!

    1. I feel the same about GoF. It has recently become my favourite book in the series, though I kind of underappreciated it in the past.

  2. Yeah, GoF is really different from the other books in the series what with the Triwizard Cup kind of distracting from everything else going on! That being said, for me the ending makes up for it because it's such a important part of the series and shapes how the rest of the series goes down!

  3. Haha, yeah, I understand your pain in trying to pick one that for some reason might not be as amazing as the others. I went with Chamber of Secrets. Here's my HP MOTW.

  4. Awww GoF. I really enjoyed the Triwizard Tournament in that one :). Totally get what you mean though and definitely checking out that link!

  5. I thought the Buzzfeed post was hilarious! Thanks for sharing that. :D I understand your dilemma for choosing a book, it was darn near impossible. I agree with you that GoF steered away from Harry as the Boy Who Lived and more toward who he was around his friends and their relationships. That's one of the reasons I liked that book because we learned so much more about them.
