The Harry Potter lists that every Potter lover needs
Here at Listening Books the Harry Potter series regularly tops our list of most downloaded audiobooks. As every Potter fan will know, this success can be easily explained - the books are great. Like really great. And that might still be the biggest understatement ever.
So in honour of this greatness, this post is all about indulging your Harry Potter needs! Our selection of carefully chosen lists will have you enthusing, reminiscing, and probably wanting to read the series all over again!
Listening Books members should also keep an eye out for the exciting Harry Potter competition at the end of this post!
First up - our Facebook friends (and if you're not one already you should join us!) loved this quiz. It does the job of the sorting hat via modern technology (well, ish), and you might want to get your Hogwarts house figured out before indulging in these lists:
- Books every Hufflepuff needs to read
- Books every Ravenclaw needs to read
- Books every Slythernin needs to read
- Books every Gryffindor needs to read
If you disagree with any of the choices in these lists - why not make your own! If you send us some fantastic suggestions, you can even make it onto the blog! (P.S. the lists don't stop here - scroll down for more!!)
So now you've been welcomed into Hogwarts, been sorted, and are getting involved with some appropriate literature, here's the list you need to make sure you're fully immersed in Harry's world - because if you feel it, it's real!
And because no one let's Harry Potter go through his trials and tribulations alone, here's what you need to feel at one with your fellow wizards and witches:
- 11 Times you wished you were Hermione Granger
- 9 Reasons Hagrid is the best Harry Potter character
- The 6 most underrated Harry Potter characters
- 8 Harry Potter characters that don't exist, but should
Let's face it, by this stage, you've probably gone away and read all the books again. So here's a list you don't want to miss:
You've been sorted, you've got emotional, you've made some friends, and you've relived it all over again. If the unthinkable has happened, and you're all Pottered out, we've got something for that too!
We hope you've enjoyed these lists! Which was your favourite?
