This week, I’m struggling a little, simply because I haven’t read that much to be honest, especially not that much magic, which actually surprises me. So here are my Five Books To Read If You Like Harry Potter.
- The Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody – a ‘chosen one’ with abilities, where there is (eventually) a community of like-abilitied people. But so much more than that.
- Ender’s Game – just stick to the first one!
- Red Rising Trilogy – again, a ‘chosen one’ story, with a school, but a lot more violent, but oh so good
- Reticulum by Marta Salek – a school of magic story, which I quite liked, and it’s not very well known at all
- Dragon Keeper by Carole Wilkinson – ‘chosen one’ to ride with a dragon, haven’t read it in many years, but it was a lovely book at the time
And I request from you, what are some good magic stories with wizards and witches? I feel like I should have read hundreds of them by now, but I struggle to think of many at all.
