Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

This should be a 5 star book. It has so many amazing moments, pretty much from Malfoy Manor onwards. The battle of Hogwarts is spectacular and heartbreaking. I much prefer the final duel between Harry and Voldemort in this compared to the movie version. No stupid special effects, no long drawn out battle. It feels …

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

I remember thinking this book was just okay when I read it before but I really enjoyed it this time around. The whole horcrux thing is brilliant and the chasing of clues through memories was a great way to do it. For quite a big book it feels much smaller as it is very well …

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Another great entry in the series. I really appreciate what the author did with this series, the first book is rather simple but the story progresses and grows darker and more complicated with each entry. Harry is quite annoying in this story but to be honest he’s a young teenager so it’s fairly accurate. We …

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

This book is where I always feel the story really gets going. The larger world starts to come into play and we see that things are not all rosy in Harry Potter universe. We’ve already seen the discrimination that can be put on muggleborn (though it’s often overlooked that this whole world looks down upon …

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

A further step up I think from the previous. This is when the story starts to get really interesting. It still has the general feel of the others but has definitely gotten darker with more adult themes starting to emerge. I really feel for the character Sirius Black. His life has been mostly terrible and …

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling

A definite improvement on the first book, which was hampered by too much scene and world building. The story takes a slightly darker turn and is the better for it though it still contains the wonder of the first book. I’ll be honest with these books there’s not much to say that probably hasn’t been …

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

I read these books initially much older than a lot of people, I’d say I was in my late teens, early twenties. I think the first three had been released. It’s probably why I don’t enjoy this one so much. It’s starts off strongish, but I was bored for a lot of the middle part …
