With the 6th movie coming out in a matter of days, in little over a week, it's Potter Mania time!! Now a couple of weeks ago, I did a poll thread on Potter vs Twilight. So far, it's the Potter magic winning out on that one by a landslide. I'm not going to ask which Harry Potter movie you like best, because we still have got one to go, or two if you count them as split. But all the books have come out, so I ask the following:
Which of the 7 books do you like the best?
Do you like the very first one, The Sorcerer's Stone? Or the second one, The Chamber of Secrets? Both of which are short and sweet.
Or do you like the fourth one, the pivotal novel in the series, The Goblet of Fire, where Voldemort returns?
Or the final and climactic one, The Deathly Hallows?
Now there are some Harry Potter fans that are fans of the movies, but not necessarily of the books. There's nothing wrong with that, cause some of us are just not book readers. But the books are a very good read, and for a lot of first time Potter readers, the books are very hard to put down, especially the last one.
So to my fellow HP fans who love both the books as well as the movies, I ask those of you to give your opinion on what your favorite "year" is in the series and why? For those that have read the books, whether before the movies or after them, let us know what you think is the better book. These aren't just children's books here, they attract readers of all ages. And for those that haven't read them, I do invite you to take some time & curl up with a good Potter book, and enter the world of fantasy and magic at Hogwarts.
So throw your votes in and tell us why. And make your choice carefully, because it ain't multiple choice.
As for my vote, I'm throwing it behind Deathly Hallows. Above all, it was the one that I just could not put down, especially the last couple of chapters. I loved that climatic battle towards the end, and I cannot wait till it comes out in the theaters. The fact alone that it's split into 2 parts tells me that they're trying not to leave anything out.
