In Defence of Good Guys

I was talking to a friend who’s a big reader, too, the other day and we came upon the discussion of romantic interests in several YA novels. I don’t even remember what books we were discussing but one thing became clear: she would always pick the bad boy while I rooted for the good guy. And if […]

This is the review of the fourth part of the series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I also reviewed The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets and The Prisoner of Azkaban.
