    Golden Goblet

    The Goblet of Fire was quite entertaining. Although I couldnt stand the fact that they cancelled Quidditch :( The first chapter was excellent, and set the tone for a darker series. My least favorites of the series are Order of the Pheonix and Half Blood Prince.

    Looking for book suggestions

    I would suggest The Woman Of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford. It's about Emma Harte who rises from nowhere to become a very rich businesswoman. The sequels Hold The Dream, To Be The Best, Emma's Secret are all worthy reads as to how Emma's children and grandchildren continue her legacy.

    Accurate facts are fine, as long as the book is enjoyable, that's what matters for me. Unless of course an author claims a book is representative of true history and then turns out it isnt.
