Let’s Discuss! I Haven’t Read Harry Potter

Hi guys! It’s Beth here, back with another discussion post for you! Can I just start by saying how proud I am of Sophie? She’s staying in a dorm at Brown for the next 3 weeks! I wouldn’t be able to do that! Let’s all wish her the best of luck with her time there 🙂 *good luck Sophie!*

Today’s post is going to be a quick chat about a very popular series I’ve never actually read.

I can almost hear the shock through the screen…hang on, a book blogger who hasn’t read one of the most popular fantasy series ever? Yes, guys, yes.

I’ve just never got round to it. As a kid I read Jacqueline Wilson and Jacqueline Wilson alone, with the exception of a few random library books…but I was never tempted towards Harry Potter.

I think this was purely due to the fact I was never interested in fantasy. I always went towards contemporary purely because that’s what I was used to, and frankly I was scared to branch out to different to different genres.

The second reason is because I’ve only ever read 3 series and they’re all trilogies…for a long time I’ve been very daunted to start a series longer than that.

But now, after reading a variety of genres in YA and adult novels, I’m ready. I’ve read 4 of the 15 part Morganville series and found out that if you love the characters enough, having more books is the best thing rather than the worst.

And fantasy isn’t so bad, after all.

Have you been daunted by a series like I am with Harry Potter?

I’ll hopefully finally be starting this series in June or July and reviewing them ASAP! Head over to The Books Are Everywhere to keep up-to-date on my reviews.


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽


I'm a 20 year old bibliophile, bookseller and publishing student who reads mostly YA! I review and blog about books here at The Books Are Everywhere.

  1. Hahaha.. Even I’m one of the (rare) few that haven’t read the Harry Potter series and have got a looooot of grief for it. 🙂 The books have always seemed like they would need me to invest my time exclusively in them, and not let me get around to the other books that I want to read. But anyway, I’m hoping to read the book sometime this year *fingers crossed*. Good luck to you! 🙂

  2. But but but! Only kidding 😉 you’ll get there, I’m not really a trilogy or fantasy-ish reader but as a kid I read Harry Potter and loved it (parts of it, I admit not all the magic parts)…so one day I think you’d be good to read it! Happy reading!
