Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
This fourth book in the series starting draggin' for me (pun intended) in the middle of the book. I had a hard time motivating myself to read it, maybe because I had a Harry Potter overdose. Once I laid it down for a while then picked it back up, though, I managed to finish it off fairly quickly. I like the drama in this one, and the ending really is pretty chilling, with Cedric Diggory being called "the spare" and all that. The Yule Ball is a nice twist, with Harry facing mortification along with dragons. It's really a pretty good book, if a bit overlong, though I'm not sure what I would cut.
