You may be the biggest Harry Potter fan ever, or you may have never read a single page of this saga of a boy wizard. I’m guessing, like 99% of people, you are somewhere in between. Well, even if you are a big fan of the series, you may not have known that each of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books is a trove of great SAT words.
Today I’ve taken SAT-level words from Book 2: The Chamber of Secrets. Accompanying this post is a video, in which I’ll read each word as it appears in the Harry Potter book—in a British accent, no less. See if you can figure out the meaning of the word based on the context (I’ll provide the definition at the end).
So you can follow along, here is a list of the words as well as the page each appears on:
Grievously (pg. 14)
Reverently (pg. 15)
Extracting (pg. 45)
Sulky (pg .50)
Apprehensively (pg. 62)
