Like I've mentioned with the other books, I always love revisiting Hogwarts and all the characters.
This book has always been the one that's gutted me towards the end, well, we all know which part I'm talking about. And if not, after reading or listening to this book, you will.
I've read the physical books plenty of times, but the audiobook is great when you are on the go as well as need to get chores done. Jim Dale is an excellent narrator and brings all the characters to life.
On to the next book in the series.

The Triwizard Tournament is to be held at Hogwarts. Only wizards who are over seventeen are allowed to enter - but that doesn't stop Harry dreaming that he will win the competition. Then at Hallowe'en, when the Goblet of Fire makes its selection, Harry is amazed to find his name is one of those that the magical cup picks out. He will face death-defying tasks, dragons, and dark wizards, but with the help of his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he might just make it through - alive!

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

This is another great book in the Bewitched by Chocolate series and I absolutely loved it just as much as the others. The characters are well developed as well as the plot. There's plenty of twists, mystery, magic, comedy and a touch of romance.
I get a kick out of Viktor losing his teeth and the vibe of his character. I love all the characters and their unique qualities shine.
Again another great read by the narrator, she's done an excellent job at bringing the characters to life and making each one stand out. A good book and a good narrator really livens the story and makes it very enjoyable to listen.
I can not wait for the 6th book to come out! I really love this series and I haven't enjoyed a series this much since Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.
I especially enjoy that this series is clean as in no massive violence or sexual content because this series just goes to show that you don't need all that to make a great story. The author is very talented and I really enjoy her writing.
Like I said, I can't wait for the 6th book to be released.
My favorite series!

I can't get enough of this series. The mysterious murders, the mysterious newcomers, the magical happenings, the budding romance, the comedy. There's so much to enjoy within this series.
Oh, I must say, by golly it seems Caitlyn and James can't get a break and I'm practically waving my hands in the air yelling, "Kiss already!", lol, but I like how the series is building up their relationship instead of throwing them together on the first few chapters at the beginning of the series like other books. But, I must say, I'm anxiously hoping James finding out some things doesn't keep them apart in the next book. Bwaaa, give a reader a break and give them their magical moment!
I'm looking forward to, *grins and runs hands in excitement*, continuing to the next book.

This has become my favorite series.

Since arriving in the tiny English village of Tillyhenge, Caitlyn is discovering that there are lots of perks to being a witch (although sadly, magic still can't make your thighs thinner or stop you acting like an idiot every time you meet handsome Lord James Fitzroy). But when the nasty housekeeper at Huntingdon Manor is murdered and Caitlyn becomes the main suspect, she finds herself surrounded by suspicious villagers. With the help of her sassy American cousin and a mischievous black kitten, Caitlyn sets out to clear her name.

This is the second in the series and I loved it as I did the first.
The plot is well developed as well as the characters and I find myself excited as I'm listening to the audiobook.
I wish I could reach in and taste the magical chocolates.
I'm definitely going to purchase the physical copies of this series as I really enjoy them so far.
Off to the next in the series!
