I think it goes without saying that my recommended read is not just one book - it is the entire series of HARRY POTTER! As soon as you start the first book, Harry Potter and Philosopher's Stone, you will be lost in the magical world of Hogwarts! The seven novels in total take Harry on a magical journey with his best friends Ron and Hermione as he carries the enormous burden of having to destroy the evil, wicked, nefarious Lord Voldemort .
I love the series because it is about magic, friendship, laughter, a battle between good and evil and of course Professor Snape. By the end of the series you will have your favourite characters and characters you will just love to hate!
Once you've read the books you can even watch the films! So start reading Harry Potter and be sorted by the ancient, wise Sorting Hat into Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff! Go Hogwarts!
