The seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series came out over 11 years ago, and we still feel like we have a Basilisk fang-shaped hole in our hearts. It's not hyperbolic to say that J.K. Rowling's epic fantasy series shaped an entire generation. Who else remembers going to midnight book release parties at Barnes and Noble? How about forcing your parents to buy multiple copies of the new book (otherwise you would have to share with your siblings)? Same.
While we can't recreate the experience of reading Harry Potter for the first time, you can get lost in a fantastical world thanks to these 10 books. Friendship, adventures, and, of course, magic abound.
