Harry Potter was given a scar by Voldemort the night his parents sacrificed themselves. And from that night onwards, he was no longer an ordinary boy but the Boy who lived. When Harry turns 11, he receives a letter from Hogwarts, a school for witchcraft and magic. He is very excited to go there and escape his cruel aunt and uncle. And soon, Hogwarts becomes his home, a place where he could be himself, explore his capabilities, make new friends, and find happiness. But this happiness is short-lived, as Voldemort wants to finish what he had started eleven years ago-to kill Harry. However, his friends will not let this happen. They are there to support him and protect him. And so begins the journey of Harry, from learning wizardry to excelling in Quidditch, making friends, finding love, and even flying cars!

If you liked Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Mortal Instruments, or The Folk of Air, you will enjoy this series too.


Harry Potter Book Series Review


Harry Potter is an amazing series of love, friendship, and magic, and is definitely one of my favorite series of all time. Once you enter the world of Harry and Hogwarts, it becomes nearly impossible to escape it. And I, never in my wildest dreams had thought that a collection of these seven books will make me a fan of witchcraft and wizardry.

What is amazing is that – all the characters in the book are as interesting and are as involved as the main character. Also, they all show not just their strong points but as well weak points, and that is appreciable. Another amazing thing about this series is the infamous trio – Harry, Hermione, and Ronald aka Ron. Their friendship is beautifully portrayed and, it builds up over the series taking its own time.

And as you go on in the series, you will be left with surprises and will be shocked by the twists and turns. Suspense in the whole Harry Potter book series is well-kept and, it is quite hard to figure it out until you reach the end.

The writing style of J.K Rowling is as well admirable. You can see a proper flow and structure in the story. And also, there is an amazing build-up and revelations. 

One of the capturing and fun things about this series is how catchy all the spells are! From Stupefy, Expelliarmus, Expecto Patronum, Avada Kedavra, Wingardium Leviosa, and many more. And all of them are unique. Hats off to J.K Rowling for coming up with such words. She has done a great job in keeping the audience curious and interested.

All of Harrys’ ventures are crazy enough to keep you entertained and it is a series you will want to read and re-read again and again. It allows you to escape reality and enter another world filled with magic, friendship, drama. Sounds pleasing, right?

Overall, the Harry Potter book series is fascinating, dramatic, tragic, emotional; honestly, it’s an infusion of all.

This book is very descriptive, and it is very easy to enter Harry’s world. It also comes with many surprises and wonders.

This year he enters the school with a bang, literally, and his year goes very much like that, full of surprises and twists and turns every next moment. But then the real trouble begins – someone is turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever?

There is a door at the end of a silent corridor. And it’s haunting Harry’s dreams. Why else would he be waking in the middle of the night, screaming in terror? As well, Dementors attack Harry’s cousin Dudely, who is not a wizard, which is uncommon. Now, to protect himself from such dark forces, Harry is forced to let Professor Snape teach him magic. In this book, Voldemort comes back, only this time stronger than ever before. Harry, on the other hand, is struggling to protect himself from him.

It takes you through the journey of how complicated dark arts can be. Hogwarts has never been duller. This is the book that brings me immense satisfaction every time I read it as all the dullness and pain disappear.

Hogwarts is not safe anymore, not just for Harry but for every student. Malfoy joins the death eaters like his father and follows Voldemort’s army. Harry will need powerful magic, more powerful than before, to protect himself from all the negative energy and betrayal around him.

Mini-Review

The title of this book is very interesting. And this book keeps its mystery until the end. This is also a fairly comic book that has its own few moments of laughs. The climax, however, is the best part.

As seen in the title, this book contains mass destruction. Hagrid, the Weasleys, and all of harry’s friends and loved ones are persistent and continue to stand by Harry. The final battle is about to begin and the protection charm is broken, which leaves Harry on his own. He must know how to protect himself to come out alive during the battle.

Mini-Review

As the final book, I could not have imagined a better ending for this series. Every time I read it, my heart breaks. The mystery and the truths are revealed, the interconnection to all the books and all of it was just perfect! As much contentment the end brought me, the same amount of sadness took over as I realized the series has come to an end.
