Review of Harry Potter Books

Harry Potter Books, by J.K. Rowling

Each Harry Potter book is on the New York Times best-seller list and are also some of my many personal book favorites. The books are filled with excitement, mystery and of course magic. After reading each page you are tempted to read the next. The author J.K. Rowling makes up wonderful things like Quidditch, a popular wizard sport, Hosgmeade the only wizard town in London, and of course Hogwarts Schools of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All the names may sound just made up but not all of them are. Argus is the Hogwarts janitor. He is always looking for people to get in trouble even if it is just for laughing or smiling at. In Greek Mythology there's a god named Argus who is said to have 100 eyes all over him. Each book has its own little mystery and is a good book for anyone who likes fantasy books.
