11 Books to Read If You Loved the Harry Potter Series

If you’re missing the wizarding world of Harry Potter and all the magical happenings at Hogswart, then you’re in for a treat.

 

Of course we are all feeling the sadness now that the Harry Potter Series are over.  I’m sure you can remember all the nights you lay awake unable to stop turning pages and never dreamed one day your beloved days at Hogswart would be over, but alas, it has happened.

One solution is to reread the books (I have read many of my favorites over and over) or watch all the Harry Potter movies (or re watch them too).  Or you can find another series that you’ll enjoy just as much (ok, maybe never as much as Harry Potter).

Here are eleven highly recommended books that will fill the hole that all your beloved Hogswart characters have left in your heart.
