Hi! I’m back! Okay, today I’m going to recommend one of the most popular books of all time (The Deathly Hallows is actually number 21 of any book ever published), so pleeeeease don’t roll your eyes. Why? Because Harry Potter, the entire series, is awesome. If you haven’t read it, you’re missing out.
My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐4.7 stars
What age should read it: It depends on the book. Here’s my list:
The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets: 9+
The Prisoner of Azkaban: 10+
The Goblet of Fire: 11+
The Order of the Phoenix, The Half-Blood Prince, The Deathly Hallows: 12+
Here’s a quick summary: Harry doesn’t know he’s a wizard. His aunt and uncle, whom he live with, have told him his parents died in a car crash, not from the wrath of an evil wizard. But on his 11th birthday, Harry learns the truth. He’s a wizard, and the wizard that killed his parents tried to kill him too. Harry is ‘the chosen one’. He goes to Hogwarts, the school of witchcraft and wizardry, and has many magical adventures. Now for the editorials: This book series is GREAT! The early books are whimsical. The later books are darker, but full of fantastic magical adventure that makes you race through the pages, and leaves you wanting more. I, personally, am a huge fan.
If you liked this you may like: The Hunger Games* (this one’s more similar to the later books), Inkheart
What else can I say? Read it. Love it. Reread it. Relove it.
