Instead of doing a christian fiction review, I’ve decided to write my thoughts on something people might be looking for. Reviews about some of the biggest Young Adult fantasy books in the industry, Harry Potter, Inheritance Cycle, and the Twilight Saga…. from a Christian perspective.,

My favorite of these three is Harry Potter, and my least favorite is the Twilight Saga. You’ll find out why soon 🙂

I only read harry potter number 5, 6, 7 (in a week’s time) But i have experienced the stories through the Movies. (I know harry potter lovers are hyperventilating right now….)

I liked the Harry Potter series much more than i thought i would. (I initially started reading this series at the insistence of my cousin.) I watched the 4 movies that were out at the time, then put in a request for the 5 & 6 books at the library. The 5th (Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix) and 6th(Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince) were good stories for purely the plot and characters and i liked them, but i wasn’t in love with the writing. Halfway through the 7th(Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) i knew i loved the book, it even made me cry!  I spent the better part of 7/21/2007  reading the book in my Grandma’s Guest room!

I kinda wasn’t sure where the J. K. Rowling was going in the 5th and 6th but by the 7th the spiritual side to the plot is very clear. I think even people who are extremely against the entire series will find this book to have redemptive qualities. Now, that’s not to say that everyone should read this, please be discerning. Don’t read it just because everyone else has. And if you are a kid, get your parent’s permission before reading!

If you have any thoughts on Harry Potter or any of the series i’m going to post on, feel free to leave a comment!
