The Harry Potter Books, Ranked from Worst to Best

Warner Bros.


#3: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Goblet of Fire is a beautiful juggernaut of magic and dragons and Quidditch, but also difficult friendships and slow-burning mysteries and then holy crap Cedric’s dead. This book raises the stakes, plain and simple, and it does so masterfully.

It’s as if we as a collective society were like, “Yes, we’ll take one children’s fantasy book, please,” and J.K. Rowling was like, “Oh, we’re fresh out of those. Here, take this TOME OF EXCEEDINGLY WELL-WRITTEN PAIN AND SUFFERING instead.”
