What Should You Read After Finishing the Harry Potter Series?

J.K Rowling has written one of the most popular series ever known to man. Not only has all the books been translated into many languages but all the books have been adapted into films. One of the things I love that Rowling includes in her books is the portrayal of strong female characters. What happens when you finish reading the Harry Potter series?

  1. Love this post. These are great suggestions including a lot of middle grade books I haven't read. I'll have to remember them for future recommendations. One of my current go-to recs to read after HP has been The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud.

    1. Thank you! I have to check out The Screaming Staircase! I heard about it before but haven't really looked into it.
