About This Quiz

The Harry Potter series is one of the most special and impactful book series of all time. That might be up for debate since there are so many other book series out there, but for those who read Harry Potter religiously, there is no other like it. You can get lost in the magic of the story, the friendships and the beautiful views vividly described in each book. Like Harry, Ron and Hermione, these books can be your best friend, They can be the thing you turn to when you feel like you have nothing else or if you want to experience a little nostalgia. 

If you want to know why the books are so inspiring and can be read over and over again, maybe you should know a little bit about the author, J.K. Rowling. Did you know that she was almost homeless, broke and had seemingly nothing going for her in life? This was all in the midst of writing the first Harry Potter book. She went through rejection after rejection because no one wanted to publish Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The Harry Potter series saved J.K. Rowling's life, and it's fired the imaginations of millions of people who have buried their nose in it. How many times has that been for you?
