The Harry Potter Book Series Ranked From Not so best to best

Because there is no worst when it comes to Harry Potter.

The Harry Potter Book Series Ranked From Not so best to best

If anyone knows me well, they know that I am a HUGE Harry Potter nerd. I've read each book multiple times, watched every movie as soon as it came out in theaters, I always stayed glued to the TV during Harry Potter weekend, and I am a proud Slytherin myself!

While I love rereading all the books, I have my favorites so here is my rank of the book series.

7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"I must not tell lies" so here it is: this book is mediocre.

So what was this book about again? In all seriousness, this book is like 53234 pages long - my book binding actually broke. And we're just supposed to pretend like Harry is not Cho Chang's rebound?

6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I can't do a book where there's not enough Hogwarts. And too many deaths. I will never forgive J.K. Rowling for killing Fred Weasley. Like, come on, just take Percy. Nobody liked him anyway.

5. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

There's nothing wrong with the first book, but I definitely prefer others over it since this is only an introduction of all the magic to come ahead.

4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Who will ever forget that badass Hermione punch?

3. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Just so much excitement and drama from the Triwizard Tournament to the Quidditch World Cup, not to mention our first glimpse at the Ron/Hermione romance. But why did Rowling have to kill Cedric? Like, take Krum instead. Please and thank you.

2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Such a wonderful plot line and the introduction of Gilderoy Lockhart, who deserves a book just about himself. I mean, he already wrote a bunch of books about his life...

1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I love, love, LOVE this book not only for its plot line, but for the major character development. There were relationships, crushes, jealousy, which are actually relatable to teens. I can go on and on about how much I love this book, especially the Sectumsempra scene. It's a masterpiece that ended in a great suspense, leading us all to hate Snape, one of the most beloved Harry Potter characters.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
