Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Book 1 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy


Harry Potter knew nothing about magic. He was stuck with the decidedly un-magical Dursleys, where he slept in a closet and ate their leftovers…until an invitation to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry changed everything. As it turns out, Harry's already famous, and he's about to discover a world he never knew existed --- one that will bring him closer to his own destiny.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Book 2 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy & Magic

In one of the most highly anticipated sequels ever, J.K. Rowling takes up where she left off with Harry's second year at Hogwarts. Old friends and new torments abound, including a spirit who haunts the girl's bathroom and an outrageously conceited new professor --- as well as a mysterious force that's turning students to stone.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Book 3 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy & Magic

For 12 long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. Convicted of killing 13 people with a single curse, he was said to be Voldemort's heir. Now he's escaped, and Harry Potter isn't safe --- not even within the walls of Hogwarts. Because on top of everything else, there may be a traitor in his midst…

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Book 4 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy & Magic

Harry wants to escape from the Dursleys and go to the Quidditch World Cup. He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's happening at Hogwarts --- an event involving two rival schools that hasn't happened in 100 years. He wants to be a normal teenager. But unfortunately, Harry Potter isn't normal --- even for a wizard. And in his case, different can be deadly.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Book 5 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy & Magic

 

In his fifth year at Hogwart's, Harry faces challenges at every turn, from the dark threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and the unreliability of the government of the magical world to the rise of Ron Weasley as the keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. Along the way he learns about the strength of his friends, the fierceness of his enemies, and the meaning of sacrifice.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Book 6 by J. K. Rowling - Fantasy & Magic

 

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggles have been affected. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.  And yet . . . as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. And with Dumbledore's guidance, he seeks out the full, complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort --- and thus finds what may be his only vulnerability.
