Hey Guys! It is Max here and I will be composing an article on ‘My Least to Most favoured Harry Potter Novels’ today! The reason why I am preparing on drafting this article is that I had finished reading the ‘Harry Potter’ series a few days ago and I thought it would be pleasant to construct this to let you guys know about my thoughts on each of the novels in the series!
By the way, this is the very first time that I had given a series … this long- a total of 7 books, all 5 stars on Goodreads. So, if you are having trouble deciding whether or not to read this book, I have an advice for you: Just read it. You’re welcome.
So, without further ado, let us dive right into the article!
This article contains spoilers for the whole series.
7. Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone
I read this book last year and I gave it a, of course, five stars on Goodreads. I thought it was a fun middle-grade novel and it had dealt with friendship and bullies. Also, the description on the Quidditch Match and the hours spent in Hogwarts’ studying were very well described. In just a short 320 pages, we observed the characters developed as their own person and their personalities were vastly diverse.
Without this starting novel and its amazing world, we will never have gotten a much better book later in the series.
However. I am placing this in the 7th place not because it was awful or anything, it was because it simply did not connect with me as much as I would like due to the fact that this was targeted for younger audiences and the main character is 11 years old (extremely naive too).
Besides that, I thought it was such a marvellous book and it should be read by all children.
6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
This was amazing as well … I mean all the books were fantastic literature but I am going to place this book in the 6th place because the action sequences kind of faltered in here. What I meant to say was, It had more character development than action.
Obviously, that is not a bad thing but I would prefer them to go along side-by-side.
This book was pretty emotional too, considering Dumbledore’s death to be a factor and Voldemort’s threat to Draco to be another.
Also, the allegiance of the characters kept swapping around … Oh My Gosh, like every single detail of this novel’s existence could be a freaking plot twist and you will never know until the very end …
So, the only thing that I ‘disliked’ about this book was the lack of action, that’s all.
5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Honestly, this book was freaking phenomenal.
The world continued to develop and Hogwarts was such an amazing place to start with because the Professors could explain about the landscape and climate that they are living in and Ron, one of Harry’s best friend, could allow them to understand some termonologies about the Wizarding world because he came from a Wizarding family.
The plot twists continued to arrive and it definitely did not disappoint and will never fail to be a surprise.
My only problem with this is, again, the simplicity of the characters and how I could not connect with their mindset.
Other than that, I love this novel and of course, another 5/5 stars!
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Cedric Diggory died.
I was disheartened over this.
Voldemort is disgusting.
This book was incredible, as always.
3. Harry Potter and the Order of The Phoenix
I had a ‘vlog’ style article for this book but before you click on the link that I am going to provide to you, just keep in mind that it is filled with spoilers because you are going to be journeying with me through the entire 870 pages of this book.
Here’s the link: READING HARRY POTTER FOR THE FIRST TIME | THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
This book was a set-up to prepare the later books in this series to be an incredibly sad sob-fest. Like, I am not even kidding … J.K Rowling is so good at writing astonishingly poignant sequences.
2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Believe me when I said this book almost made the top spot.
In this book, Sirius character was introduced! Throughout the whole book, we thought we knew that he was an evil character that had murdered plenty of muggles and worked with Voldemort. However, as the book progressed forwards, the cards on the table took a spin and turned out that Sirius was not evil after all …
Scabbers the rat was. He Was Wormtail.
What a freaking good plot twist!
I have nothing bad to say about this novel because it was so phenomenal. With that in mind, we shall move on.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Out of all the books in this series, I have to say that this is my favourite.
J.K Rowling took my tears and moulded it into dry ice and I will not complain because it was a satisfaction to let her do her magical work on me.
This book has the right balance of sadness, action, friendship tests and loyalty swaps. Also, it had a good pacing which advanced the story forwards and great world-building. I mean, the world-building in this book was at its finest! Everything clicked together and the story just flowed as normal as it could be.
Just saying, this book made me cry not because of Mad-Eye Moody or Fred’s death but Dobby’s death, Hermione’s frustration and taking on the blame from both of her friends made me bawl.
Dobby’s death made me cry in both the movie and the books! I do not even know how a series in both formats- book and movie could do that to a human …
