Re: Harry Potter-type books

I'd recommend the Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud.
I don't know how old you are (it's not really the sort of book that adults would read, too, like Harry Potter), but I'd give it a shot.

I loved it when I was twelve/thirteen and I'm rereading it right now (I'm sixteen) and I still think it's funny and charming.

Re: Harry Potter-type books

When I went to the DH release they were giving out the first book of the Pendragon series as prizes. I finally finished the series, and I would recommend it. I don't think it's quite as intricate as HP (things don't often come back from prefious books) but it's a similar story.

There's a forum on it here if you're interested:

Re: Harry Potter-type books

Well there's these books called the Charlie Bone series and I think they're very good; well written... but it's just a little too close to Harry Potter for me!!! They're are different "houses" according to talents, they have to find a golden object with the other houses... and it's just too similar!!!

I read it as an adult, but only because it wasn't available to me as a kid! I enjoyed it, the books are very well written and explores a different way magic is channeled. It's not as 'every-day' as HP, it gets more into what I'd call traditional magic.

I also enjoyed His Dark Materials trilogy and The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series so far. Both are deeper into subjects of magic, history, fantasy than HP, but both very engaging with some parallels to HP.

I agree I really enjoyed His dark materials, and i have also enjoyed the secrets of the immortal nicholas flamel so far and can not wait to see how this series concludes.

Re: Harry Potter-type books

The Old Kingdom trilogy by Garth Nix is really good and fun to read....
