Waiting on Wednesday: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling & Jim Kay

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’m choosing the illustrated Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay.  I was basically squealing when the next cover was revealed on BuzzFeed last week and I have to say that I love it even more than the first.  I love the color contrast of the title against the beautiful blue sky, the gryffindor scarf blowing in the wind and the design of The Burrow as Harry and the Weasley’s arrive after escaping the Dursley’s.  The book will be available on October 4th and I think I can speak for every Harry Potter fan when I say I NEED TO GET MY HANDS ON THIS ASAP.

All Harry Potter wants is to get away from the Dursleys and go back to Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby – who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls’ bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley’s younger sister, Ginny.

But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone–or something–starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects… Harry Potter himself. (via Goodreads)
