Harry Potter Books Ranked from Best to Worst

It’s about to get real. So many people have strong feelings about the Harry Potter series, myself included. One of my favorite discussions is finding out which of the Harry Potter books is someone’s favorite and which is their least favorite. Harry Potter was such a huge part of my childhood. I went to three midnight book releases and four midnight movie releases. I dressed up as Hermione for countless Halloweens and was extremely disappointed the year I turned eleven because an owl didn’t show up with a handwritten letter from Professor Dumbledore.

I lost the dust jackets for 4-6. Also the first three paperbacks are falling apart. But I can’t bring myself to buy new copies because it feels disloyal.

You’re not going to want to read this if you haven’t read the books. Also, if you haven’t read the books, what the fuck are you doing with your life? Get to it.

So, here’s my definitive ranking of the Harry Potter series. Prepare for babbling.
