Bonjour, mes amis! I know that there are probably millions of book reviews on the Harry Potter series, but since it’s one of my favorites, I thought I’d do my own.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was written by J.K. Rowling and is one of the most popular books in the world. Rowling has a unique writing style- she describes everything. When I read her books, I feel like I’m a part of the story. I’m right there beside Harry, experiencing everything that he does, from Potions class to battling Lord Voldemort.
Rowling has created some of the most memorable characters. Harry is a worthy hero, Hermione, a rule-following and near-literal know-it-all, and Ron is, although not the brightest of the trio, one of the most loyal friends in all of fiction.
This compelling series begins with Vernon Dursley in utter confusion at all of the strange, cloaked people walking around and muttering about “The Boy Who Lived”. Later, the baby Harry Potter is placed on the doorstep of his aunt and uncle’s house. His parents have been killed.
11 years later, Harry has endured years of abuse from the Dursleys, his last living relatives. Most unexpectedly, he receives a letter inviting him to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After much fighting from his aunt and uncle, he finally leaves for Hogwarts with Hagrid, the gamekeeper of the school’s grounds. On his way, he meets Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, who become his best friends and stay with him throughout the whole series.
While at Hogwarts, Harry discovers a past he never knew about, how his parents were really killed, and so much more. He makes friends and enemies, struggles with some of his classes, loves others, and grows suspicious of one teacher working with Voldemort, the villain behind it all.

InkHeart is the first book in Cornelia Funke’s InkHeart trilogy, which is my all-time favorite series. Why? This story truly shows how powerful words can be, and how magical reading is.
Meet Meggie Folchart, the 12-year-old daughter of a bookbinder. What she doesn’t know is that her father has a special, magical ability: he can bring characters out of books by reading aloud. When she was just a toddler, Mo released villainous Capricorn, knife-loving Basta, and the fire-eater Dustfinger into the world. Now, years later, Dustfinger shows up again, and Meggie and her father are swept into the kind of adventure she’d only ever read about.
As extraordinary as this book is, you have to wait until about the sixth chapter for things to really get good. However, if you give it a chance, it’ll be one of your favorites by the time you’re done.

The High Order of Knights is the first book in Jonathan Dorr’s Legend of the Dragon Slayer series, which follows Amaran as he discovers his destiny.
In the first book, Amaran becomes the unlikely best friend of Rallden, the heir to the throne of Albakran. A few years later, things get rather complicated when he falls in love with Elle, who is to marry Rallden. Banished from Albakran, Amaran is sent into slavery, bought by a knight named Leandros, and is told of his intriguing and dangerous destiny.
Surprisingly, it took me a while to finish this book. I typically devour these sorts of stories. However, it was a very good read, and I enjoyed it. It was romantic and adventurous.
Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to follow if you haven’t already!

The 39 Clues series, by various authors, is one of the greatest works of fiction I have ever read. It has realistic and believable characters, along with an intriguing plot and lots of adventure.
Amy Cahill (14) and her little brother, Dan (11), are members of the world’s most powerful family, but they don’t know about it until their grandmother, Grace, dies. Grace’s will sets in motion the greatest scavenger hunt in history- the hunt for 39 Clues, which are hidden around the world. Each Clue is an ingredient to a serum that will make the drinker the most powerful person in the world. Amy and Dan join the Hunt- but so do their many relatives. It’s up to them to keep the Clues out of the wrong hands!
If you’re not the biggest fan of reading, definitely check out the audio books. They are amazing! David Pittu is an award-winning actor, and he does the voices of the characters so well, it sounds like he has a cast.
