Hey guys! This weeks topic is about my top five favorite books with magic. Some of them will probably be obvious. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone else puts all five of their favorites five of the Harry Potter books (which would be totally fine because they are great books). I won’t be doing that, but I’m sure someone will. Anyways! (squirrel) Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Shanah @BionicBookWorm. You should go check her out and join in on Top 5 Tuesday!
I didn’t say none of my five favorites weren’t going to be Harry Potter I just said that it wouldn’t be all five!
I picked this one because I enjoyed reading how enamored and in awe Harry was when Hagrid took him from the Dursleys and into the magic world. I loved how Rowling kept Harry humble even after discovering who he really was and all that he had already accomplished without even knowing it. I also loved imagining all of Hogwarts and the rest of the wizarding world (yes I’ve seen the movies, but it’s always more fun to imagine it yourself).
This was a really good book (not a good movie) and so different than anything that I had read before. I think that’s one of the reasons I liked it so much. There were all these different types of people and this kid discovers all this stuff that he thought were just tales his grandfather was making up. I really enjoyed reading this and was also very disappointed with the movie.
I loved this book and the whole entire series. I love all the characters and that it’s not just based on one fictional being but several. I love how it introduced a fictional being to me: Shadowhunters. Which I know will probably only be a Cassandra Clare thing, but still. There are all kinds of magic in this book.
This isn’t exactly witches or wizards, but it’s still magical. This was the first series I read all the way through and got me hooked on reading. I remember reading at night and telling myself to finish the chapter and go to bed, then laying there being like, “I have to know what going to happen!” or I would have just laid there and come up with my own theory about what was going to happen. It’s such a great series.
Sorry, I had to do another obvious one. I liked this one so much because throughout the book Harry is getting all of this unwanted attention (attention that he deserves but doesn’t want). There’s more going on in this book than in the first and Harry is getting into a lot more trouble with Ron and Hermione (mostly Ron). There’s more magic, more action, etc. you get the point (you’ve probably read it).
