So I ask you, have you read the Harry Potter books or just watched the movies? Or maybe both? Coming up soon I'm going to do a movie marathon of the movies since I've only seen the first couple, but I've never read the books. Are they as well written as people (okay almost everyone) says they are?


  1. I have read and watched and now working on listening to the audios - all are super fantastic - enjoy the marathon! AWESOME idea!

  2. Yes. The movies are great, the books are so much better.

    I hadn't even thought of those on audio...I just might have to try that!

  4. @Natasha A. I've heard the books really are well written. My usual thing is a NO to anything YA, but so many keep saying these really are done well and I'd like to see how the world-building is written - not jsut how it comes alive on screen.

  5. Yes, yes they are. I can't believe you've gone this long without your Potter reading friends staging a Rowling intervention. I have performed many of these type interventions in the past, and I have a 100% success rate. :)

  6. I originally bought the books for my niece when she was growing up, but by book 4, I was hooked on the books myself.

    I'd say after book 3, they don't read as YA at all. I think at that point Rowling knew that her audience was growing and wrote without limiting herself to just what would appeal to teens.

    You should definitely read the books, too. Even if you don't like YA.
