100+ Books for Harry Potter Fans

So many great books for Harry Potter fans. I've read a ton of these and totally agree with this reading list.

One of my favorite things about the Harry Potter books is the way that it got so many people young and old reading. When my family discovered the books all four of us devoured them. Even my dad who I have never thought of as being a reader before was fighting over who’s turn it was with the book.

Sadly many people stop at Potter but there are SO many great books books in the world. So today I’m sharing 50+ books for Harry Potter Fans. Whether they are full of fun friends like Harry, Ron, and Hermione, great adventure, or wonderful world building all I have personally read every single one of these and loved them all. I hope you will as well!

For those which are a part of a series (most of them) I am listing the first book and making the text bold. So if you count all the books in the series there are WELL over 100 books on this list :) If they are a  part of the series I have read ALL the books available within each of the series! Because this would be a CRAZY long post if I wrote even one sentence about each of these. But I have written about each of these before since I have written about each and every one of these (usually more than once). So if you’re curious about one of them feel free to use the search bar in the upper right (or at the bottom) to learn more of what I think.

    I’ve always loved Harry Potter, since I first read them for a teaching credential class in college! My favorite character is Professor Lupin. That is, if I don’t pick Harry…

  2. I love this list! There are some really great books listed (I haven’t read all of them yet). One of my favourite books is on the list– “The Graveyard Book” by Neil Gaiman. I keep coming back to it, both in print version and the lovely audio book version,

  3. Stopping in from Inspiration Monday – I have been going through HP withdrawal and am always looking for fun new books.

    I LOVE Vampire Academy and Bloodlines. Also a fan of the Divergent series and the Hunger Game. I just started Throne of Glass. I found Eragon was a great one to add to the list.

  4. Did you ever read Alan Bradley’s Flavia de Luce mystery series? I think you’ll love it! Read them in order. Have a happy Monday, Mary Beth

  5. thanks for these! I loved HP and could always use more books to read :)

  6. Marissa thank you so much for sharing these book lists at Dream. Create. Inspire. Link. I pinned the Harry potter and divergent list for my older 2 boys that love to read in hopes of finding a book they haven’t read yet! Take care, Tara

  7. Lisandra says:

    Great thanks will try some soon. The alchemist series was not on the list. My husband who doesn’t really read even got into it.

  8. Have you read the Fabelhaven series by Brandon Mull? They are amazing too
