Question:

What is your go-to drink and/or snack while reading?

Answer

Tea is my go-to reading beverage. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside, a hot cup a tea and a good book go perfectly together all year round.  As for snacking, well…guilty as charged.  It takes me forever to eat because I’m too busy reading the next page.

Beginning:

The villagers of Little Hangleton still called it “the Riddle House”, even though it had been many years since the Riddle family had lived there.

My Thoughts

I really like that Goblet of Fire doesn’t begin with explaining that Harry is a wizard and instead gets right to the plot and action of the book. For my 56, anything involving Fred and George is a winner in my book and reading of their joke inventions is pure pleasure to me.

Friday Memes #56Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)
Author J.K. Rowling
Series: Harry Potter #4
Publication Date September 28th 2002
Goodreads

Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.And in his case, different can be deadly.

    • My favorite has always been Prisoner of Azkaban because I love the knowledge of knowing who betrayed the Potters. However, there are so many wonderful elements in Goblet of Fire that it is up there for me too.

    • Goblet of Fire really is the beginning of a dark time in the wizarding world and I’ve always felt the books get a bit meatier after the fourth novel, both is size and plot. Tea is good in any kind of weather, although I’ve been drinking a lot more iced tea recently.

    • Usually I can’t wait for Harry to get to Hogwarts but, so much happens in the first few chapters that I am spellbound before boarding the Hogwarts Express.

  1. I’ve only recently come into hot tea. I’m still not sure if it’s for me. Iced tea is the norm in the south. I started trying peppermint tea…and I’m putting ice in it! lol If I happen to have anything next to me while reading, I quickly forget about it and it goes cold.

  2. I agree . . . jumping right into the story and action was the best way to start Goblet of Fire. And I love Fred & George and their products. I wish they would have included more of those in the movies.

    Tea is a great drink for reading!
