Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
13. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
17. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
19. Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng
44. The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud


Those are the ones I've read.


I really liked Eragon when I was twelve; I reread it a couple of months ago, though, and found myself a little bored. I had actually wanted to read it and the following one again in order to understand the third book, but I sort of didn't get hooked and just stopped. Now the third book just sits there on my shelf, unread /: Aah, that hurts. I might give it another try. Mr Paolini just took too long to finish that one. Had he published it in, like, 2006, I'm sure I would have devoured it.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is just a classic, like everything Mr Dahl ever produced. He's a genius, let's face it.

Inkheart I read halfway, but never understood the fascination and gave up after a while. It was weird, because out of my friends, I was always the booky one and others hated reading. Most of those loved Inkheart, though.

Molly Moon I remember thinking was cute, but I was only eleven when I read it. So I don't know what I'd think of that five years later.

The Amulet of Sarmakand I absolutely loved back in the day The two following books were good too, not as fascinating, but still sort of neat.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

1. Coraline by Neil Gaiman

2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini I read this, and the sequel Eldest. They were ok, and quick reads, but they were just trying too hard to be as magical and interesting as HP, using Mythology and all, kind of like a dumbed down version of LoTR. Didn't set my heart on fire.

3. So You Want to Be a Wizard by Diane Duane

4. Faerie Wars by Herbie Brennan

5. Five Children and It by E. Nesbit

6. The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum I thought the film was far more engaging, still one of my favourites. For some reason the book didn't captivate me as much.

7. The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett I've read a few of the Discworld series and they are excellent, really funny. I'm trying to do a degree at the moment, so am holding off reading any more as there are so many to get through. I would recommend his childrens trilogy -Truckers, Diggers and Wings - to anyone, heartwarming and hilarious.

8. Charmed Life by Diana Wynne Jones

9. The Indian In the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks

10. Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper

11. The Witch Trade by Michael Molloy

12. A School for Sorcery by E. Rose Sabin

13. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl Obviously a classic, as is all Dahl's fiction. Personally I always had more of a soft spot for Fantastic Mr. Fox though

14. The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson

15. The 13 Clocks by James Thurber This is a really fun, enchanting tale that will only take about an hour to read. Thurber was an incredibly interesting man, illustrator and editor as well as a fantastic fairy tale writer.

16. Half Magic by Edward Eager

17. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

18. A College of Magics by Caroline Stevermer

19. Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng

20. The Princess Bride by William Goldman

21. Bedknob and Broomstick by Mary Norton Haven't read this, but loved the film as a child, all those animals in cartoons and the real humans...

22. The Gammage Cup by Carol Kendall

23. The Princess and the Goblin by George MacDonald

24. The Once and Future King by T. H. White

25. The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken

26. The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

27. The Midnight Folk by John Masefield

28. The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley

29. The Brave Apprentice by P. W. Catanese

30. A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin

31. Mimus by Lilli Thal

32. Dragon and Thief by Timothy Zahn

33. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

34. The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

35. Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

36. Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

37. Tangerine by Edward Bloor

38. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

39. The Various by Steve Augarde

40. The Children of Green Knowe by L. M. Boston

41. The Tears of the Salamander by Peter Dickinson

42. Hidden Talents by David Lubar

43. Sabriel by Garth Nix (It was kind of...boring. )

44. The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud Have read the whole trilogy, and was the closest to HP fervour that I got - great story, characters, magical world - this has it all.

45. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

A really interesting list, and I'd like to read more of them.

I would also reommend the Mortal Engines quadrilogy if anyone wants to read a fantastic series of books that have as intricate a plotline as HP.

37. Tangerine by Edward Bloor
45. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

^ Just these two. I read Tangerine for school and thought it was okay. I read The Lightning Thief and enjoyed it so much I read the entire series, eagerly anticipating The Last Olympian before it came out.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

Five Children and It by E. Nesbit
The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson
The 13 Clocks by James Thurber
Half Magic by Edward Eager
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Bedknob and Broomstick by Mary Norton
The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander
The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley
The Brave Apprentice by P. W. Catanese


It's funny that of the few I've read I consider all to be childrens books and yet to me HP is much more than that. I would reccomend the Willoughby Chase series, it's magical and has a bit of the HP style humour. When I was younger I adored Eva Ibbotson's books, The Secret of Platform 13 is one of her best but I also love Journey to the River Sea. Five children and It is a classic, I like the style in which its written although I can't think of many parallels with HP.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

I've only read: 38. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

It's definitely a different book -- but a good read none the less. I hope to read more off of this list someday.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

1. Coraline by Neil Gaiman:
*I've seen the movie, but have not read the book. I have other Gaiman books on my 'to read' list. I don't know if I want to read Coraline or not :\

2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
*I've started it, but find that I can put it down too easy and pick up something else. Seen the movie and liked it, but am determined to finish the book.

17. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

*Read it and loved it! It's been awhile though. I'd like to read it again so I can read the second and third books.

20. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
*Is on my 'to read' list. I actually have the book, just haven't picked it up. I absolutely adore the movie though.

34. The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
*Have seen the movie, but don't think it's a book I want to read. My son has read it though and really liked it.

44. The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
*Have this book on my shelf waiting to be read! So many on my 'to read' list and so little time

45. The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
*Read it and loved it! Can't wait to pick up #2. There are quite a few similarities to HP I thought, but the story itself is different! I don't know. I really liked it and am super excited for the movie.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

1. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
- One summer at camp, my counselor read us part of the book every night before we went to sleep. I'm not sure why she thought it'd be a good bedtime book. I'd like to read it myself sometime, since I often fell asleep before she'd finish.

2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
- Read the first two, and liked them, but lost interest by the time the next one was out.

3. So You Want to Be a Wizard by Diane Duane
- I have the first 7 in the series, and really liked them at first, but I think they started to drag after a while.

20. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
- Loved it! One of my favorites.

37. Tangerine by Edward Bloor
- Read it in 8th grade, for an Academic Pentathlon competition. I liked it, but it's not one I'd read again now.

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

Graceling is quite good and I like the companion piece. I find myself wondering what would happen if Katsa and Po took a break from training girls and women to defend themselves and went on an expedition through the Great Grays. How would they be received as the first Gracelings since Leck--how would Hannah in her twenties and Fire and Brigan nearing fifty respond to the wildcat survivor and her openhearted consort?

Re: Mugglenet's 45 Books to Get Hooked on After Harry Potter - Which have you read?

I've only read Charlie and the chocolat factory out of all those, I plan on reading Eragon and The Lightning Thief in the future.

I'm kinda surprised that The Nicolas Flamel Series by Michael Scott isn't on the list (The Alchemyst, The Magician, The Sorceress and The Necromancer are available atm, but there will be more books in the series). I found this to be a nice read as well, in the magical world. It's no Harry Potter of course, but I found it to be very entertaining.

I also read the Septimus Heap Series by Angie Sage, those are more for younger readers than I am (although I'm 23, I'm not a native English speaker so if it's gets too complicated, I won't be able to follow the story so I guess it doesn't mind that the language is a bit 'easy').

The list is a nice piece of inspiration though so I'll walk trough it next time I'm planning on ordering books

I have only read about 20% of the list, but most of the ones I read I didn't like. I am hoping to find a series that I can fall into, but preferably one that is complete. I always fall in love with stories when they are partly finished, the waiting is agony!

I know! That's so tough. I have read the Vampire Diaries, I bought the series because I thought the series was finished. Little did I know that there will be 7 (!!!) more books in the series! Agh! I also have the Septimus Heap Series but I didn't fell in love with that one, even though I still want to know how the series end. I also need new series

The should have added "The Hobbit" on the list! Therefore that list is VOID!
