OotP all the way!! It was definitely the best-written...JKR gets better with every book!! Besides...the longer, the better!! Go OotP!!

I love all of the books! But my favorite would have to be Prisoner of Azkaban. All kinds of secrets come out about Harry's past and it's all put together perfectly! And also, of course, Lupin's there and I love him!

I like The Prisoner of Azkaban more or less even though the movie stank...... but i liked it more well because there was a lot more info there where jk rowling wrote i dont mean jk didnt write enough in the others but the focus on aftr the 3rd was more serious,love warming and self righteous sweet........ before that i was really and truly getting fed up when harry kept asking how do people kno me though i kno he hadnt been included in the wizarding world for quite sometime.......but the only th@$ really the reason why i like it cuz there more info and it was like alfonso liked directed jk wut too write or else the book would have STANK as well........
i kno im being rude and crude , but im really sry for my ranting and misbehaving but its just i expected alot more wah
Ima Libra,so you might as well boo hoo !!!

POA is my favourite out of all of them, but here is my list.

1. POA
2. GOF
4. COS
5. PS
6. Fantastic Beasts
7. Quidditch

I like PS and COS but I thought the last three were better because they were more adult orientated, but then I am an adult reader so that is probably why!

I think what she did with Fantastic Beasts and Quidditch Through the ages was remarkable.

It still meant alot of work and thought went into those books and yet every bit of money and time she spent on it went to charity. She is inspiring! :flowersmile:

I loved Goblet of fire, but I also like PoA and CoS.
There was something strange abou book five, I don't know if it was because I read it in english (missed some things because I'm Portuguese).

For me Prisoner of Azkaban is the most readable, so I say it's my favorite - but I think the writing gets better with each one, so I consider OotP pretty much tied with PoA. My list goes:

1 - Prisoner of Azkaban
2 - Order of the Phoenix (until page 805 - then it's my least favorite book. )
3 - Goblet of Fire
4 - Sorcerer's Stone
5 - Chamber of Secrets
6 - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
7 - Quidditch Through the Ages

And you can insert the Half Blood Prince as number eight, because without Sirius, I don't see the point.

No, not really, I can't back that up...

Everything JK has written has been great. But, my favorite is POA. That's where Sirius and Lupin are first introduced! I also really like OOTP, but POA beats it. So anyway, here's my list.

1. POA
3. GOF
4. COS
5. SS
6. Qudditch through the ages
7. Fantastic beasts and where to find them.

I agree with Siriusly in Love. What's the point without Sirius? Honestly though, I'm sure book six will be excellent as well.

I have to agree with Swizzlestick, that even though I'm not an adult, the last 3 are more mature, and also part of a greater story. PS was more character introducing and we got more history in POA to OOTP.

Well, if the trend holds out, my favorite will be number 7 -- I like each one better than the last.

And I love the textbooks. They're adorable (for textbooks, anyway).

My absolute fave is Goblet of Fire--the action pace was just exhilirating, and at the end I cried and was moved by Dumbledore's speech about Cedric.

Next is POA/OoTP - they're on a same level cause I cant decide wihich is better...POA because there was a lot of history in it (Marauders, James and Lily's death, etc)...OoTP' s great too, but I can't help but feel a bit unsatisfied with it...I really thought that after Voldemort's return in GoF the action would really start in Book 5...

....oh well. I guess OotP is the 'calm before the storm'...the Second War begins in HBP

I have a bad habit of when the newest book comes out, that's my favorite. So when OOTP came out, it was my favorite. But after the "newness" of it weared off, it was actually one of my lesser favorites (but i still dont think i have a least favorite, they are all too good for that)

But defintily, my all-time favorite, is CoS. Dont ask me why cuz i can never really explain it, but i LOVE it. Its the best. Maybe because it stands so well on its own, but all of them kind of do.

But yeah, its CoS all the way!

Well I originally liked The Prisoner of Azkaban because Remus came into the book, he's my total favorite, and then the whole Sirius thing came up, but now I can't decide between Prisoner of Azkaban and Order of the Pheonix because I love that book, even though its sad. I can't get enough of any of the books though, I wish they were longer though so maybe they would last me longer than a day.
