Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

 Summary: Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It's assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney's ghoulish predictions seriously?

Thoughts: So far...this has got to be my favorite out of the series! They just keep getting better and better but it is going to take a lot to top this one! 
The plot thickens! Revelations of the past mingle with the mysteries of the present and create a tale like no other!
 The characters! I love them, I can't get enough of them! I put down this book and picked up the next one! I can't help it! their real, good, and Harry is so adorable! 
The writing will always get me. It's just so classical. A mix between The Chronicles of Narnia and A Series of Unfortunate Events. \
 And, of course, world building. Always progressing and expanding, we learn many knew and interesting facts about the wizarding world and wizards themselves in here. 
Overall, another great installment in the series and actually a little lighter than it's predecessor, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Content: I found at least one use of D*** in here but these are written in England where that word isn't seen the same way as in America. There's also one rather brutal scene where one of the characters MILD SPOILER (because I'm not giving away details) is dragged off by a large dog and gets their leg broken in the process. END SPOILER. And, of course, tons of magic. Over all though, a clean read and highly recommended!
