20 Things I Love About Harry Potter


As some of you might know I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I’ve devoured the books many times, I’ve seen the movies several times and I just love everything about Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling. So since yesterday was the 20 year anniversary, of the day the first book ‘Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone’ was published. I thought it would be fun to share with you 20 things I love about Harry Potter.  


1.      I love the World J.K. Rowling created. I love the idea of wizards living between us normal ‘muggles’. Although there are definitely some bad people living in the world J.K. Rowling created, I would love to be a part of the wizard community.  

2.      I love Hogwarts. I am a total geek who loves to learn and make projects and do homework (Yep I admit it) and being able to learn and life at Hogwarts would be simply amazing. Not only is Hogwarts a beautiful castle, but is also is filled with mystery and beautiful objects. Yes, I’m still waiting on my acceptance letter. 

3.      I love how each school year is a new book. It really feels like I’m a part of the Harry Potter world since I’ve been with Harry Potter for all of his school years. And I loved reading how each school year went for Harry. 

4.      I love the friendships in Harry Potter. Not only the friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermoine, but also the friendship between Harry and Neville and Luna Lovegood. 

5.      I love Quidditch. I love that J.K. Rowling created this whole new sport. I’m not a big fan of sports in general, but I would definitely go see a game of Quidditch. 

6.      I love Hagrid. Who doesn’t love this big, kind and a bit strange man who charmed us from the moment he brought Harry to life with the Dursleys. I loved reading about him in the different books. He definitely stole my heart. 

7.      I love Hedwig. I always had a thing for owls. They just have this mysterious magical feeling about them. And I love that Harry Potter has this beautiful Snow Owl. The scenes with Hedwig in the movies are just breathtaking. 

8.      I love how Harry was never arrogant about who he was. Everyone is the wizarding world knew who he was, but he always stayed the way he was. He never took anything for granted. And he never felt better than others. 

9.      I love the Hogwarts library and all those books that are supposedly there. I wish I could visit that library. I would love to browse through those corridors and read all those books. Even the weird ones. That would definitely be my book bloggers dream.

10.   I love Albus Dumbledore. Yes, that character really was my hero throughout the Harry Potter books. Most of the times I didn’t really get him, but I loved how mysterious and wise he was. I literarily cried for days when Albus Dumbledore died in ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’. 

11.   I love House Elves, and especially Dobby. Don’t you just love that small, ugly but kind creature who tried to save Harry Potter? Although his help doesn’t always work out the way he wants too, he at least tries his best.  

12.   I love the Weasleys. Throughout the Harry Potter series my favorite wizard family were definitely the Weasleys. I just love those redheaded, kind and warm people. Arthur and Molly definitely stole my hearts when they treated Harry like he was one of their own. 

13.   I love Professor Snape. Severus Snape was one of those characters that I hated but also loved. In the first view books hating him was my top feeling, but slowly throughout the series I became to love him more. I still feel like there is so much more about his character then we got know.  

14.   I love the different foods and drinks we got to know in the series. Butterbeer, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, Chocolate Frogs, Cauldron Cake.. I wish we could try them all. 

15.   I love platform 9 ¾. I know it’s just a train station, but I always loved the idea of this magical place just next to the ‘muggles’.

16.   I love the Forbidden Forest. Throughout the books Harry visited the Forest several times and I always loved finding out what kind of creatures we got to meet. Although some creatures were definitely a little scary, I would love to walk there and see these magical creatures. 

17.   I love Diagon Alley. Wouldn’t you love to shop there? I know I do. If only that place would really exist. One day I hope to visit the Harry Potter parks in London or Orlando and the Diagon Alley they created there. 

18.   I love Hermoine. I love Harry and Ron too off course. But my favorite character has always been Hermoine. I loved how well-read and smart she is. If Hermoine really would exist I would definitely want to be here friend.  

19.   I love how even after all these years I still keep wondering about things in the Harry Potter world. How are the characters doing? Who is teaching at Hogwarts? Is Hagrid still the gamekeeper? 

20.   I love that Harry Potter and it’s fans are still as ‘alive’ now as when it was years ago. I love that children now still get to experience Harry Potter and become fans. I love that there is still so much happening around Harry Potter, thinking of new movies and attractions all over the world.

There are still many more reasons why I love everything about Harry Potter. I’ve recently joined the Wizarding World Book Club where we get to re-read the books again, and talk and discuss with each other everything there is about the books. I love it.  

Have you read Harry Potter? And what do you love the most about this amazing book series?
