The magic of Harry Potter is back and sweeping the fans. But even if you missed out on the Hogwarts craze growing up, fear not! There’s still time to join the hype train by acquainting yourself with the magical castle and its wonders.

Harry Potter series is reportedly under development, and with Hogwarts Legacy already out, Potterheads are again coming out of their caves. As the Harry Potter revival continues, newcomers are increasingly eager to catch up and delve into the magical world. But, there’s so much official content around Harry Potter, it can all seem confusing to Hogwarts novices. 

Reading books is the best place to dive headfirst into the Harry Potter series. 

What are all the Harry Potter books?

The first Harry Potter book was released in 1997, and the final one wrapped up the iconic series in 2007. Here are all seven Harry Potter books:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

This is the complete list of the books you must read to immerse yourself in Harry’s magical journey. And if you find yourself becoming emotionally invested in Hogwarts and the magical world, you can continue your reading spree with J.K. Rowling’s related works. 

The author has written related content in the following books:

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • Quidditch Through the Ages
  • The Tales of Beedle the Bard
  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 

What’s the best order to read Harry Potter?

Harry Potter

Harry Potter’s story is best understood when read in the order it was released in. Each book catches Harry Potter’s academic journey in a new year, so the chronological order is the same as the release order. 

Are Harry Potter books better than the movie? 

Out of all the digital book-based franchises, Harry Potter movies are perhaps the only ones that match up to the books in terms of visual and storytelling excellence. These movies are not just visually stunning and captivating, but also boast perfect casting that elevates the overall experience.

However, the movies do miss out on a chunk of light-hearted comedy and romance scenes from the books, but they do cover the crucial parts that contribute to the storyline. But, if you’re looking to become a full-fledged Potterhead, reading all seven books is a must to learn every possible charm and spell in Harry Potter.
