The Harry Potter Reread likens itself to the tightrope walker in the traveling circus… but it is probably more of a clown who spins plates on poles. Also a noble profession, but picking a clown face is far more difficult than picking a spangly catsuit. Alas, these are the trials of life.
This week, we’ve got more spiders than Emily will ever be comfortable with (the number she is comfortable with resting firmly at zero), and a reveal of everything wrong the this year’s Defense Against the Dark Arts Teacher. It’s chapters 15 and 16 of The Chamber of Secrets—Aragog and The Chamber of Secrets.
Index to the reread can be located here! Other Harry Potter and Potter-related pieces can be found under their appropriate tag. And of course, since we know this is a reread, all posts might contain spoilers for the entire series. If you haven’t read all the Potter books, be warned.
