Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
A classic, nearly everyone has either seen the films or read the books or both! As a huge fan of both the films and the books I try to watch and read them every few months, so for this pick I thought I would indulge in my obsessiveness and choose Harry Potter. If you haven’t read them before please do give them a try! A definite must-read for children and adults of all ages because we all deserve to be children again once in a while and these books are the perfect excuse!
